Tell me again why you were late

Posted in life at 07:59 0 by gillsmoke

At my place of employment the employees have to fill out a form if they are more than a half hour late or leave more than a half hour early. There is room for an excuse. Mine today reads, “Secret Agent Duties”.

Was it worth it? Yes, it was, I wouldn’t want to do it again tonight. But I would if CRSE asked. I think there might be something else going on tonight. It’s like the holiday season without the gifts.

Slayer

Posted in Random, Reference at 19:16 0 by gillsmoke

So Slayer is today’s featured article on Wikipedia.

Yes that Slayer. The one you don’t let your kids listen to. I love them and now legions of new people people might start listening.

Many of my coworkers doubt the veracity, or quality of information. Their fears are founded on the mistaken belief that if everyone can make changes then quality of the data must be flawed. I try to point out the peer review aspect of medical literature and that most encyclopedias are formed in a similar manner. Submit, edit, review, publish, just now you can control over your article. It’s magic. It’s humanity at it’s best. Don’t believe me look up Christ, or Star Trek, or Microsoft. Then try it in a regular encyclopedia. Wikipedia wins.

Long overdue review

Posted in Random, review at 21:29 0 by gillsmoke

Primer

WOW, I woke up today with the movie on my mind. I will not spoil any details. I will give nothing away. I last watched over a month ago, and it is still with me. If that isn’t a good reason to get your mitts on a movie, what is? I’ll tell you what you won’t get. You won’t get a romantic comedy, but there are a couple of funny spots. You won’t get a horror flick, but there is something disturbing going on. You definitely won’t get and effects laden SciFi movie, but it has a mind numbing contraption as it’s core prop. CRSE was kind enough to get it for me for Valentine’s Day and the gift keeps giving. Seriously go see it. Then when you are looking for answers later, remember that I told you, yes you are right, that sequence of events is most definitely wrong.

On a related theme, I used to have deja vu on a regular basis. It got so common for a time I played mystic. I ride the sensation of knowing that this had happened just like this for days, I started taking notes and making mental predictions. It was always spoiled by trying to get others on board, as soon as I tried to get others to see the wave of synchronisity the wave would collapse.
I remember hearing the Police song and went, “It’s just like that, but completely different.” I remember reading about Jung’s experiences of profound Synchronisity and thinking, “Wow, I wish I could have seen that. I wonder how he got there?” I used to have a strong sense that I was supposed to witness something profound. I’m glad that’s gone. I have given up most of my mystic thinking for matters more mundane. With the distance of years I have to ask was I crazy? Did I need “Professional Help”?  I don’t think so.

Tonight  a triple post to get that blogging monkey off my back

More Dreamtime

Posted in dream, life at 21:26 0 by gillsmoke

So Our checking account was used without our permission again. It happened last year about Tax time, that faux me was buying airline tickets. This yahoo was buying stuff at Walmarts in the Phoenix area. That’s the preface to the dream. I dreamed I went to AZ to hunt them down. I found them living in an ordinary house being couch potatoes. When I confronted them about their crimes, our conversation broke out into a fight. When I hit them it was like hitting putty. Mushy, indistinct, no satisfaction.

The following is the random gibberish sent to disguise the spammers intent.

It sounds like spider looking for unique text in a book, but whats the book? Or is it the recorded ramblings of a madman, almost genius, definitely incoherent. If I ever start sounding like that let me know. Of course if I ever get to that point I would respond something like, “If I were you, I’d look forward to the time of the bus being late. The anger of another person means the first has more patience.” So there.
