Wiccans for Kerry

On NPR last night on the ride home from work, well actually to the movies from work, they had a discussion on Magic in the modern world, people who 'practice' and such. As part of that they interviewed some famous Wiccan woman. Out of her discussions of the world, values, etc I discovered that she probably supported Kerry, not that he would want anyone to know. I got that impression from two facts/topics. 1. the environment
2. his desire to nurture relationships with the world

Other than her desire to invoke ancient greek gods and hold rituals, I held a lot of the same beliefs that she talked about.

Slow Day

My dinner last night was eaten by Chelsea at lunch so I ended up munching on some of the worst pistachios I've ever had. She brought in a lean cuisine as well but got mixed up about which one was hers and which was mine. She brought a flavor I don't like so I couldn't switch.

The parking lot was mostly empty today when I got here. It may have filled up since then, but I doubt it. I haven't seen Gina or Bob today. I didn't see Steve at all yesterday. He was planning on entering a base competition(3 mile run, 13 mile ride, 3 mile run) yesterday morning, but never came in after that. I had to loan him my bike.

I never made it to the movies yesterday. By the time I got home and got the showtimes I couldn't make the final showing at 11:00 so I went to bed. Maybe I'll get out of here tonight in time to see it. At about 5 tonight I'll hit my OT limit for this week and will have to start modifying all the time. We did manage to get Lab 1 finished before we left last night. Lab 6 will be finished in a couple minutes and I'll move on to Lab 4 while I wait for Gina.

Reed was out setting up for the BBQ, so it looks like lunch is on the company. Thanks! No word yet on the meal, but free food is free food. Chelsea brought in a replacement dinner for me tonight so I'll be all set if I stay late, but I'd rather have popcorn at the theater instead.

insane in the membrane

Gina may have lost something... she seemed to have been hit with a fit of hystaria as she talk/laughed about 'hinky' the christmas poo. She drew a picture and talked about how funny it was when it hopped around leaving little brown stains.

We are down to maybe 30 man-hours of work on the labs.

The BBQ was awesome. TriTips, hot sausage, apple pie(with cool whip), burgers(with grilled onion). The sauce on the TriTips was a california wine teriyaki sauce. Reed merinaded them for 36 hours prior to the BBQ and coated them while grilled. Yum Yum Yummy.

My stomach has been hurting ever since lunch cause I ate way too much. I had been down to 219, I'll have to check on the way out tonight.

Incredibly Awesone

So, I just got back from The Incredibles. Best flick I've seen this year. Really awesome. Super heroes, family values, action, romance, drama. This will be added to my DVD collection. I don't want to spoil it, but it was really good. Lots of laughs for comic book fans, bond movie fans, etc. The animation was really good. It was obvious the characters weren't real, but I don't think they were aiming for that. They looked like the people in Toy Story, with better hair.

This may be worth seeing again with Emily, if it is still out.
