Not sure where I got this from originally, may have even been here. But if anyone knows where I can get a print with a similar message? I'd be all over it.
John McCain had some fun on Letterman last night. He seems like the type of guy I could get along well with over a card game, then want to strangle the second he starts talking. Kind of like mom's husband. (He looks like a guy who marries your mom.)
Papa John's has brought back the six cheese Tuscan pizza. I was so excited I almost had to wake up Mrs. NFB to tell her when I saw it. It was so good that after they stopped carrying it the last time, we practically stopped getting delivery pizza. Nothing else really compared favorably. After telling her this morning, her first response was, "so we're getting that tonight. Right?"
I survived April Fools completely unscathed. Not one joke at my expense. I consider that payback for the way every other day feels like a big joke.
Reality TV addicts and the people who love them. . .film at eleven!
Burned my mouth on an "all beef frank" last night. Nothing tastes right today because of it.
The IT department, sans Zippy since he was sleeping off that extra hour of work from the day before, got together yesterday and had a good long chat about how everybody here rides the "but that's the way we've always done it" excuse into the ground. Also talk of the transition from old management to new management and how that may or may not affect the old arguments. Old management is really pounding the idea of "that's the way we've always done it" into the new manager's heads on their way out though. To the point of making sure they know it couldn't possibly work any other way. Except for those who've been in other companies and actually seen it work in other ways. It'll be interesting to see how it all shakes out.
It's an odd sensation, watching all these different aspects of me finally find some weird form of balance. Aspects of myself that, in the past, I'd viewed as being at war with each other are now just parts of a whole, all working together to bring me a strange kind of calm and peace I've never quite realized I was capable of achieving before. It's an odd sensation, watching all these previously separated parts of myself become a singular entity. For the first time instead of promoting self-conflict, solutions just seem to fall into place. I owe a lot of that to Mrs. NFB and her ability to help me see when I'm being ridiculous. I also owe a surprising amount to myself, and my ability, after years with her, of finally being able to see the ridiculousness in myself before it becomes irreversible action.
Is this what growing up means? Nah, can't be. YOU'LL NEVER TAKE ME ALIVE, AGING!
Balance and flow, balance and flow.
Began work on a new song last night. My first delving into the violin/guitar combo my brain has so long imagined. It's more haunting than I thought it would be, not that that's a bad thing. Much work to do yet, but I got nothing but time to spend on it anyway.
I think my aquarium equipment list is down to two choices and then I'm finished. Still have to visit with the one local aquarium/fish shop left that I'm aware of. As nicely operated as the local Petco fish section seems to be, it's still a big chain. I'd rather support the little guy when it comes to livestock of this nature. And the little guys always seem to be far more helpful when it comes to water quality issues. The chains just hand you a bottle of stress coat and tell you that's all you need. The little guys will go into details about water conditions and how they change through the year. Almost time to get things wet. This weekend or next I think.
And that's about it. Tomorrow then?
