Hello friends.

If you have a penis, go see Grindhouse. You will enjoy it.

Everyone else, if you think you might enjoy a movie that people with penises would enjoy, go see Grindhouse. You'll likely enjoy it.

Dual Classing

Jan. 29th, 2007 | 10:42 pm

For those not familiar with xkcd, change that.

A sample...



I've been putting a lot of points into both Nerd and Jock as of late.

I've been going to the gym nearly every day to run and lift weights. It's really beginning to show. The strength is finally coming back into my calf (after "the incident") and my ankle isn't as tight like it was. I'm able to run 3-4 miles, do weights, and some other assorted fitness and walk away feeling like a million bucks. That's nice. There's even some idle talk of a half marathon this Spring.

In geekier news, my employer has seen fit for me to spend our idle time between projects coding. Yes, normally we design planes, but designing planes takes software, and software takes money, and why buy it when you can build it? The weapon of choice (though I really had no choice) is Visual Studio loaded with VB.net. I've been coding for nearly two weeks straight and though I still can't see The Matrix I'm really becoming fluent with it. I really get a kick out of playing around with code for a couple hours and then having this fun little windows program to play with. Much more entertaining than the old command line programs I'm used to.

It's even gotten as bad as coding in my free time. Yes it's sad. I go to work and code all day. I get a free weekend and what do I do? I code all day. It's fun though. I promise.

This past weekend I endeavored to write a Id3 tag editor to organize my mp3's. I'm just not satisfied with the tools in the players. I think I can do better.

Hmm. May have loaded up a little heavy on Nerd there...

I've also signed up for Yoga with hlb1995.

Ahh. There. Nice and balanced.

Dean Karnazes

Jan. 26th, 2007 | 11:33 pm
mood: Sore
music: Latin Girls - Black Eyed Peas

This is Dean Karnazes. Dean isn't human. Dean is a machine. A machine that runs.



Among the many epic foot races Dean has not only competed in but obliterated are:

-> The Western States 100 Mile - A 100 mile run along rough trails of the Sierra Nevada mountains featuring over a half dozen stretches that go up thousands of feet in elevation while traveling half that distance laterally</li>

-> The Badwater 135 Mile - An unbelievably grueling run through the 120 degree heat of the Death Valley, CA desert which requires protective suits, a constant supply of melted shoe replacements, and hospitalization for many athletes</li>

-> An Antarctic marathon in -35 to -60 degree cold ending at the south pole where exposed flesh freezes in under a minute and breathing the raw air would result in death by frozen trachea

-> His most recent and oddly unimpressive in comparison, 50 marathons in 50 states in 50 days

I'd recommend his book, Ultra Marathon Man - Confessions of an All-night Runner, from your local library. For anyone who runs any at all, it is inspirationally demoralizing. It makes your runs seem pathetic and makes what you thought was painful seems down right enjoyable.

Sword Saint

Jan. 16th, 2007 | 07:46 pm

You scored as Miyamoto Musashi. You're considered a sword saint, whatever the fuck that is. You don't give two hoots what weapon or tact people come at you with, as your solution is a steady grip on a sharp blade and it tends to work.

You're never going to be defeated in battle, but you are going to die of Cancer.

You dress to impress. You also buy cars to impress. No second best for you. You want a car that will deliver. Both performance, and respect. And if they fall for you for the car, even better. Just don't get too cocky.

Gallery Owner
You scored 55 Ambition, 67 Eccentricty, 77 Artsiness and 28 Humility!
You love the arts and you are probably pretty knowledgable about them--and you like other people to know it. You are stylish and outgoing, and you throw a mean party. Most important, you know how to promote yourself without seeming selfish and petty. You'll do to figure out what you are most passionate and stick with it, no matter how unlikely it seems. Chances are, with your affable social style and your ability to work system, you will be able to make a niche for yourself no matter where you are.

I've got boobs.

Wow, I'm equally likely to be a cute, passionately optimistic, mechanic and a hard, no-nonsense, soldier. Which I guess makes sense, as I'm more and more buying into the old adage of Gemini's having dual personalities. Regardless, I'm a babe.

You scored as Zoe Alleyne Washburne. The Soldier. You are the second in command, and that is fine. You like a chain of command, but only when the one in charge has earnt your respect. Those who earn your love or loyalty will find no one better to guard their back.
