Dreams become reality [Apr. 20th, 2007|08:26 pm]

[music |39' of course]

I read a lot of fan-fiction regarding Stargate SG-1 and Atlantis. I have been contemplating possible folks that would be asked to join the SGC and or the Atlantis project. I was thinking of scientists and or specialists that would 'fit in'.

Then I had a dream....

A member of my favorite band was ABD for a PhD in Astronomy/astrophysics before he threw up his hands and focused completely on the music career back in 1972.

His focus was space particulates - AKA Stardust.

I dreamed that he was publishing articles again, and was approached due to a new theory proven in one paper.

I was amused by this dream, so I went online to see if there was any basis for my wild imagination.

so I find this:



and others at this site.

He is actually really finishing his degree in Astrophysics.

Brian May has actually returned to science.

Hot damn!

Wonders of rain [Apr. 15th, 2007|07:24 pm]

[music |hold back the rain - DuranDuran]

Today they ended the 'Knight Realms' event early due to the rain and the forcast for snow. I arrived home after a long drive in a torential downpour, and sat down to relax be fore I showered. Now it looks like I won't be able to tonight. You see the rain is so hard and plentiful that our basement has flooded.

THis may not seem so strange, but when Floyd (the hurricane) came through, we barely got a tricle of water in the baesment. Today, there are 4 inches of water down there, and it's coming in through the foundation.

Luckily, most things were located on shelves and or on top of plastic bins.

The roads around here are flooded badly, and may not clear by morning.

verdammed 'repair folk' [Apr. 6th, 2007|02:42 pm]

[music |Blaze of Glory - the Alarm]

Now today I and Garrun were supposed to take a leasurely drive down to visit his parents, but the (enter your favorite explitive) repair folks cancelled the original repair appointment, and resceduled for today. So of course, they call this morning and say they will be by 'simetime between 1-5pm - therefore destroying our plans for today, and making is so he will most likely be fighting rush hour traffic to get here.

And now. . . for my wonderous day off - you see Comcast (our ...enter profanity... cable TV/internet provider) has decided to go all digital with HBO, thus making descrambler boxes mandatory for all subscribers. The Captain of our residence decided to break down and get a box for her room. (the only box in the house before this was in the living room). Well, she got it delivered, and hooked it up, and could not get any of the channels over 99 - which is where HBO moved (301).

COMCAST said the repair guy would be here between 11-1. The Captain came home for lunch to wait for the guy. Since Garrun was delayed, I said I would wait for the guy so she could go back to work. He got here at 3. Comcast wouldn't answer his call into the dispatcher for 20 minutes regarding re-initializing the box. He then looked at the wiring outside, and whisled at the condition. He is now replacing all the outside wires to the house.

now I am sitting- waiting for him to be done.

(no subject) [Nov. 16th, 2006|07:47 pm]

You are The Sun

Happiness, Content, Joy.

The meanings for the Sun are fairly simple and consistent.

Young, healthy, new, fresh. The brain is working, things that were muddled come clear, everything falls into place, and everything seems to go your way.

The Sun is ruled by the Sun, of course. This is the light that comes after the long dark night, Apollo to the Moon's Diana. A positive card, it promises you your day in the sun. Glory, gain, triumph, pleasure, truth, success. As the moon symbolized inspiration from the unconscious, from dreams, this card symbolizes discoveries made fully consciousness and wide awake. You have an understanding and enjoyment of science and math, beautifully constructed music, carefully reasoned philosophy. It is a card of intellect, clarity of mind, and feelings of youthful energy.

What Tarot Card are You?
