Learned something new last night

This is the inside of my DVD player. "smart people" don't jostle the player while trying to get it to go to the main menu (remote is missing in a storage container) causing the disc to fall out of its proper place and into the DVD player to get stuck. It is now out since I took my player apart (this is what I learned) and it is now back together and working just fine.  I just find it amusing that the movie was “Smart People”

A Quote

"It doesn't happen all at once," said the Skin Horse. "You become. It takes a long time. That's why it doesn't happen often to people who break easily, or have sharp edges, or who have to be carefully kept. Generally, by the time you are Real, most of your hair has been loved off, and your eyes drop out and you get loose in your joints and very shabby. But these things don't matter at all, because once you are Real you can't be ugly, except to people who don't understand."

Writer's Block: Googling Myself

Have you ever Googled yourself to see what other people can find out about you? If so, were you surprised at what turned up?

I have googled myself and have learned nothing that is surprising about me.  In fact I am pretty much void of a lot of information but I was surprised to see that I was still attached to some previous work sites.

Libra Horoscope for week of January 7, 2010
Verticle Oracle card Libra (September 23-October 22)
I want to tell you about Harj, a character in Douglas Coupland's novel Generation A. He's an enterprising young Sri Lankan man who sells "celebrity room tones" over the Internet. Each hour-long recording purports to convey the sound of the silence that pervades the homes of luminaries like Mick Jagger and Cameron Diaz when they're not there. I think that you Libras are now primed to learn from Harj's example. Like him, you have the power to capitalize on nothingness and absence and emptiness.

More later when I am back to an actual putter. But fot the moment... Salad followed by Blackberry wine. Roasting fingerling potatoes, onions, carrots, garlic and Rosemary smells tasty. Can't wait for my late dinner.

Extended my vacation by a day.

Libra Horoscope for week of August 13, 2009

Verticle Oracle card Libra (September 23-October 22)
Your upcoming adventures will probably make no sense -- unless you redefine what constitutes "sense." If you do that, your adventures could make absolutely lucid sense in a backward, upside-down way that will rejuvenate you sexually, spiritually, and emotionally. Here's another approach to understanding the point I'm trying to make: The epic drama you're about to begin may yield no apparent lesson and provide no practical guidance -- unless you empty your mind and give up hope for extracting specific lessons and guidance -- in which case you will be flooded with wise insights.
