Day-to-Day


Have you ever had one of those morning where you didn’t quite want to sit down yet? Not because you aren’t ready to start the day, or turn on your deskphone and let the calls roll in, but because of that half cup of corporate coffee that rips through your system like Olestra. Yea, well, it goes without saying my morning has started out quick and on time haha 🙂

Anyway, I installed the old Tomb Raider II on my PC this weekend and was then told about the new Tomb Raider: Legends for 360 and just had to buy it.

It’s fabulous! I love those puzzle games although you might not think so watching me play. I get pretty upset and tensions are high getting stuck and frustrated on certain parts. It’s a game where you truck along for maybe 30 minutes then come to a point in the game where you could spend another 30 minutes, just on that part. I’m actually trying to get off work early just to go feed my addiction ^_^

Well well, it’s been a minute since I’ve been able to write, or had anything to share for that matter. Yesterday the weather blessed Valentines Day for my area and no one had to go into work, yee-haw! It was a wonderful ice-rain storm:

It may not look like much in the picture, but trust me, all that white shit is pure ice pebbles, which later become about 7 inches of solid ice-rock. I had a hell of a time rockin’ that stang out of her spot.

Now it seems the debate over whether there is a global climate change or not and it’s become a solution debate. As noted in the article, the last time there was a recorded temp of 5.4 F in the Arctic and Antarctic was 120,000 years ago and sea levels rose 20 feet (thanks to the melting of Greenland’s icesheet).

“Such warming—three degrees C (5.4 degrees F)—is the scientists’ best estimate of how much average temperatures would rise if greenhouse gas concentrations were allowed to double from preindustrial levels. Warming of 0.6 degree C (one degree F) is already guaranteed for this century, due to the CO2in place, which will remain there for centuries.”

I was listening to Pacifica.org and Democracynow.org this morning on 89.3FM and they were talking about Guantanamo Bay and it hit me.

I had a dream over the weekend that I was trying to join the Air Force (again) and I went on this trip to a place called Gareda (Solomon Islands) or Geneva (Switzerland), some place with a G, which I think was actually Guantanamo Bay but my brain didn’t know it. Anyway, there were soldiers stationed there and I recall bad things happening to both the natives and the soldiers. Some people killed themselves.  I don’t recall who was in the wrong or what they were sparring about, but people were getting hurt. So, this morning when I heard about the Guantanamo Bay, I was sure that’s what I dreamt about. Mind you, the strangeness in all this is that I rarely in a blue moon listen to NPR or talk radio and I just think it’s one of those strange happenings that appeared to me to explain that dream. I researched Guantanamo this morning to learn what it was all about as I really didn’t know what it was. I find it interesting I dream about things I don’t have any clue about, yet they correspond with worldly events. Also though, I’ve been trying to pay a bit more attention to all my dreams because I keep experiencing things within them a few days to a few months later. Some of my dreams are just outlandish though and I know they are just dreams, nothing more.

Anyway, curious.

No, really, as noted in my Tuesday “Update” post this week, I really do have a liquid addiction. I had to take a picture because it seemed to funny to me this morning:

That my friends, is water, orange juice, old crappy in-house coffee, and Starbucks.   Starbucks to help my liver recover from the festivities last night….now only if there was a drink to recover from a raging headache.
