Spikes for a Trekpod

by @ 9:39 am. Filed under Outdoors, Personal

My Trekpod tripod staff came with rubber feet on the tips, well that’s nice for hardwood floors or carpet but not so great for wilderness or rough concrete. So I took 3 stainless bolts and ground the heads off of them.

Not one of the better ways to start the day

by @ 8:32 am. Filed under Technology

Dropped my cellphone this morning. I guess it could be worse tho, it still works.

Looks like the gas pump did something bad.

by @ 11:21 am. Filed under Uncategorized

When I went to get gas the other day I noticed the LCD screen was totally shattered. Looks like someone didn’t like gas prices going up again, heh.

Notice anything wrong here?

I would say this is a fail.

Gslug meeting

by @ 11:56 am. Filed under Personal

Geez, it feels like a funeral. I’ve been in quieter libraries. It felt “tense” like nobody wanted to say anything for fear of looking silly maybe.

The Linuxchix were MUCH more my speed. I like friendly and fun with lots of talk rather than movies and presentations. I think having it in an office conference room definitely had alot to do with it.

Oh well, I tried.

WTF is this?

by @ 10:43 am. Filed under Personal

I saw this in the restroom on the basement level of Pacific Place in Seattle.

Does anyone know who it is for?

HI-Chew Goodness

by @ 4:15 pm. Filed under Personal

Got this at fifty cents a stick (half off) just because it was a few months out of date.

For those not familiar with HI-Chew it’s kind of like Laffy Taffy or Starburst.

(But of course far superior, heh)

The snow must go on

by @ 8:00 am. Filed under Uncategorized

The road was blocked this morning by a bus that slid sideways into a parked car. Thankfully not my car.

Viva El Obama!

by @ 5:35 pm. Filed under Personal

If only eh?

Che had balls our recent politicians can only dream of.


EDIT: Yes, I know he had his dark side, and some view him with animosity as “the butcher of La CabaƱa.” but he didn’t just sit back in Cuba after they won the revolution, he went off to find another revolution to lead. That is why I like him, he didn’t just talk the talk, he walked the walk.

My good deed for the day

by @ 5:25 pm. Filed under Uncategorized

When Sarah came to visit me I got her a monthly bus card thinking we would use the bus a lot.
This did not come to pass and I ended up carrying the pass around using it for people who I saw paying with cash since nobody on Craigslist wanted to but it at more than 1/20th of it’s face value.
Today a gentleman at the bus stop was getting out cash and happened to mutter, “gotta save to get a pass”. So I gave him that spare one, much to his shock.
That action felt much nicer than letting someone haggle it out of me for a pittance online.
Hopefully he’ll pay it forward.

A funny thing happened to me at the bus stop this morning…

by @ 6:30 am. Filed under Uncategorized

So as I was walking to the bus stopop I saw the bus coming up behind me. Knowing only the #5 served that stop I broke into a run to beat it.
As I came up to the stop only one of the many people waiting got on. “It’s only the local” one lady said to me, my thought in return was “so?”.
According to the bus schedule the #5 express bus would indeed get me to downtown faster, a whole 2 minutes faster. Since the express was due along in 3 minutes the bus I got on will beat it to downtown by 1 minute.
I take a bus earlier than I have to so i’m on time if I miss it and have to take the next one, so either way I get to the office a good 20 minutes early.
I’m glad that i’ve slowed down enough to just be worried about catching the bus, not catching the fastest bus.

The grind continues

by @ 6:25 am. Filed under Uncategorized

Finally getting used to riding the bus. A friend at work gave me an unlimited yearly bus pass which cuts 65$ out of my monthly expenses.
My throat is feeling better little by little and i’m looking forward to seeing Sarah again in a few weeks.
Hopefully work will assign me a permanent shift soon so I can begin scheduling my private life a little more.
Life goes onward.

Speedy Opening

by @ 6:35 pm. Filed under Personal

It’s hard to see but this circle of a line goes all the way around the fourth floor of the Pacific Place shopping center.

They are all waiting for Speed Racer.

I estimate three hundred heads.

(I found out this morning that it was an advanced screening, since it seemed kind of odd for a movie to open on a Monday)

Dave and crew were playing Civilization today.

Seven players in total and the game has been going for about eight hours now.

Texas Troubles for the FLDS church

by @ 10:45 am. Filed under Politics, Religion

Who would have guessed that the downfall of the Fundamentalist Mormon Church would come at the hands of the Texas Child Protective Services.
They’ve hauled away hundreds of children and arrested one adult. It’s definitely not a public relations win for the FLDS church. And it probably removes one-third of their cult members.
The cops are still digging for evidence, i’m dying to see what they found in the place.
I’m also wondering what other juicy bits of information and new cases they’re going to gain from all the children they took into custody.
Time will tell.

SUV Plate

by @ 7:26 am. Filed under Personal

Seen on a large Toyota Land Rover, I think it fits perfectly.
One has to wonder what meaning the owner gives to it.

GPS on the Bus

by @ 9:00 pm. Filed under Personal

It’s fuzzy, but this shows the signal I get in the “accordion” section of the bus. I kinda stumbled onto this fact by accident.

Normally I’m lucky to see 2 satellites, and that’s holding the unit up against the windows.

Here I have 8 solid signals, and the location is to within +/-16 feet.

Science on Tap

by @ 7:05 pm. Filed under Personal

I made it, kind of crowded but we’ll see how it goes.

**40 Minute presentation**

The speaker this time was a specialist in climate modeling. He did a good job, but the presentation was rather heavy on conspiracy theory relating to the Bush administration and big oil squashing any satellites that might provide proof of global warming. (He didn’t have to try so hard to sell the idea to his audience)

Maybe the one tomorrow will be better.

I noticed this while biking home from the bank.

The field at Ballard High School is getting replaced with astroturf.

I should bring the detector out here before that happens.
