A few photos popped up on thefacebook from a wedding we were at a couple weeks ago and we noticed a couple things. I need a haircut, it just doesn't behave and looks scraggly right now. It's partly that I was outdoors, but it's mostly the hair. Second, this lack of training lately is making me look weak. I might get weak and die. This is not good. Also, the wifing unit has twiggy arms, too. Her weakness is a potentially fatal condition.
Looks like I'll be traveling to Dallas for a couple days for some training at the end of June. Going with a couple team members and it looks like we're only renting one car, so I won't have many options for escaping in the evenings. There are some dickheads in Dallas that I might want to call dickheads in person, but wouldn't get a chance unless I escape the coworkers. And, of course, there may be Husites around or something. And then there might be a couple more people around or something.
We watched some Star Trek last night. The DVDs have them in a different order than the way we were watching them on the internets when they were still available, airing vs production, so we're a little confused about which ones we haven't yet watched. We only have a couple left of season 2. One thing that annoys me at times is Spock's assertions about what is or is not logical. He reminds me of the wankers in the early 20th century who thought Emanuel Lasker played irrationally and intentionally chose bad moves that would psychologically disrupt his opponents when in fact Lasker simply understood chess far better than them, which is why he was the world champion and those people were dogmatic losers. I do not think "logic" means what he thinks it means...
I really like chess. As I remarked on my chess web-log, I need to find some stronger opposition. I'm 4/4 in all my CICL games when I really want to be about 1.5/4. Yes, I want to lose more often than I do...
I've been feeling tired and run down lately.
I generally have a low opinion of "informers". Now, there's nothing wrong with reporting petty crime and anything worse, but I mean tattling to authorities. WARNING: this is going to discuss boring church politics. However, I noticed the other day that some guy I don't like who's verging on being a conspiracy theorist had accidentally published on his web-log his notes for an article he was writing to try to discredit a certain bishop who he thinks, in terms of church politics, is a fellow who needs discrediting. Nothing scandalous, just a matter of oddities in the paperwork in transferring him to America or something. But, you know, he has to find something. Google picked it up, which is how I found it - it wasn't linked anywhere on his site. He seemed to have documents that were probably confidential and had to have been leaked (including one labelled in the draft as "PROBABLY SHOULD NOT BE PUBLISHED"), so I downloaded everything on the site and sent a note to the bishop to let him know some conspiracy theorist nutter was possibly going to publish some nonsense about him. I also sent a note to the conspiracy theorist to let him know his site is "leaky". Anyway, I suppose this makes me an "informer" of sorts. But the bishop is a nice fellow and the conspiracy theorist is a dickhead. The bishop thanked me and the nutter hasn't replied - see what I mean?
Now, mind you, I casually refer to libertarians and supporters of alternative medicine as "conspiracy theorists", and sometimes they really are, but often they aren't. This guy is really a conspiracy theorist. He's gone down the rabbit hole. Everything has become a liberal gay conspiracy to sodomize our minds and only the Great White Hat can rescue us. Crrrrrazy.
Maybe they don't know how to open a new tab? Or something. Though I do like - comparatively - watching people who know what they're doing use a computer. "Oh, wait, what? I didn't know there was a keyboard shortcut for that." Uh, still doesn't rise very high on my list of things I enjoy watching. It's higher than golf, though.
