I'm applying for a 10 week diving gig next fall. If I manage to get it, I'll be going to Antarctica and diving below the ice. It barely pays anything at all but if I do it, I'll be officially hardcore.

In other news, the cat is gone and now I have fleas.

I resigned today--acting like a retard got old, plus I have St Pat's drinking to do all day tomorrow, and the corporate job thing would have interfered with that.

Yeah, I'm thinking about back to grad school now.

It looks like a simple stupid mistake on my part may have ruined a $7000 piece of scientific equipment. FAILURE!

My account will be running out in about a week. I don't think I'll renew. The signal to stupid ratio on this site has been getting me down lately. There are some people here I'll miss but, unfortunately, there are a lot of others that I'd like to pretend do not exist.

Sometimes the stupid is what keeps me coming back. I have a sick sense of humor wink

You have my real-world contact info, feel free to pop up anytime. Of course, if you use your real name, it'll take me a minute to put 2+2.

Enjoy the ocean!

sylvain:

How are the bikes doing? I was told by the DMV employee that I needed to study more... since I got 8 wrong on the permit test.

No time for internet. Must study. Must dive. Sorry about not replying to anyone and stuff.

Brief note: I built and used an underwater vacuum today. I'll be using it to dig benthic infauna (aka strange critters) out of the sand. It's pretty rad (aka totally dorky).

maybe I should be cattails instead

catatac:

I'm so adoringly jealous. You have the most wonderful job I can think of. I used to wrangle the bamboo sharks in Long Beach. I'd do it for the rest of my life except that I'm so abysmally awful at math that school won't even let me get to the biology part, which I totally get. Stupid math.
Anyway, yeah. You're just marvelous. smile

A harbor seal ended our dive yesterday. We were trying to catch fish in order to tag them and this seal would not leave us alone. He started with the normal friendly fin chewing sort of behavior but eventually became a bit scary. He bit my arm and wouldn't let go. He didn't break my skin but he kept biting me. After he...

I see we share a love of clamps and diving. What do you do for work, it sounds way more interesting than mine?

In the past week I drove to Santa Barbara twice and stood on the beach for hours long after the bars had all closed. I was waiting for some stupid little fish to come up on the beach to spawn so that I could squeeze the gametes out of them. The little fuckers never showed up. I got eggs from the northern california variety but...

I got hassled by The Man yesterday. I was riding my motorcycle home and started noticing there were a lot of cops around. Then one started following me. The lights went on when I was about half a block from home. Another cop pulled up behind the one that had pulled me over. They photographed me with my helmet on and my helmet off and...

Stupid stuff, but people are dumber than we generally can imagine.

I am sorry we didn't make it all the way to Cali and visit you two. Grand Canyon was as far as we had time for. It was a great trip anyway. We've started scheming for our next trip already.
