|Check me out... posting.
I'm mostly a Facebook user these days, strangely enough, but came over to see if a friend had posted a setlist... and she had. And then I thought that I should say something, just in case you wondered where I was.
'ere I am JH, the ghost in the machine.

I am the dog you put to sleep, as you like to call the needle of oblivion, come back to tell you this simple thing: I never liked you--not one bit. When I licked your face, I thought of biting off your nose. When I watched you toweling yourself dry, I wanted to leap and unman you with a snap. I resented the way you moved, your lack of animal grace, the way you would sit in a chair to eat, a napkin on your lap, knife in your hand. I would have run away, but I was too weak, a trick you taught me while I was learning to sit and heel, and--greatest of insults--shake hands without a hand. I admit the sight of the leash would excite me but only because it meant I was about to smell things you had never touched. You do not want to believe this, but I have no reason to lie. I hated the car, the rubber toys, disliked your friends and, worse, your relatives. The jingling of my tags drove me mad. You always scratched me in the wrong place. All I ever wanted from you was food and fresh water in my metal bowls. While you slept, I watched you breathe as the moon rose in the sky. It took all of my strength not to raise my head and howl. Now I am free of the collar, the yellow raincoat, monogrammed sweater, the absurdity of your lawn, and that is all you need to know about this place except what you already supposed and are glad it did not happen sooner-- that everyone here can read and write, the dogs in poetry, the cats and the others in prose. - Billy Collins

Hey, I know I haven't posted here in awhile. I've become one of those people who always checks Facebook and occasionally uses twitter. But I'll share this:http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=znIXyFh6dsI
because Anis Mojgani is slamtastic.

|I went back
I just came home from my first poekoelan lesson in 16 years. They made me feel like I'd never left. Get out there and get some exercise, my lovelies. I cannot recommend it enough!

Heh. So yeah, I'm a computer hardware noob. I learned a little bit about DDR memory and went out to buy some for my computer (from the Free Geek thrift store, so I only paid 5 bucks.)
My computer uses DDR2 memory. Which seems like the same thing. But it's not.
Who knew? The little notch isn't in exactly the same place.
Well, I'll try again after the snow storm I guess.

I was feeling a little crazy, so after the rest of the house was asleep, I headed over to the Kennedy School detention bar for a beer and a cigar. I ended up getting embroiled in a political conversation and being offered a beer by the bartender for being a teacher. It was very entertaining. Now I'm somewhat drunk and sick from the tobacco, but it was totally worth it to gain a new myspace friend and spend a bit of the night connecting with people.
Now Bailey is licking my hands because she's a nicotine addicted cat who eats cigarette butts whenever she can get ahold of them.
The world is an entertaining place.

|I'll be at the HPLFF tomorrow.
Hey, if you're going to be at the HP Lovecraft Film Festival tomorrow, look me up. I expect to get there lateish in the afternoon and be there until Dark Paradox is over. If I get a call to sub early in the morning on Monday I might leave a little earlier, but as of now I'm planning to make a night of it.http://hplfilmfestival.com/

Are moths really all that drawn to flame?
Or is that just what we say
When we set ourselves to burning them?

|gosh darn those gremlins
My rocky relationship with the Demiurge is showing again today. I hadn't been able to find my glasses for the last two days, so when I lost my phone today, I thought I'd go look out in my car. Well, the glasses were there, under the front seat, but not the phone. Now I'll have to lose something else to find my phone or something. It's annoying.
But you know what's not annoying, but in fact the opposite of that?

Well, Grandma died yesterday, so I'm not driving down there this week. Things still look grim for Kubla Con, so be prepared for me to zip through the Bay Area sometime in early-mid June. That is one good thing about a teacher's schedule, a bit of time in the Summer to play, even if there's no money to play with. I'll stay here through May, earn as much money as I can and then be able to run around a bit.

|Will I still make it to KublaCon?
Well, I'm not sure. My grandmother is dying and we're going down to Gold Beach on Wednesday. This cuts into my earning time. And I misunderstood how much money the government was sending, so I'm a little short there too. How completely lame. Perhaps I should skip the con(s) and go down in June and just hang out with folks.
