By all accounts, my life is pretty boring compared to the average person...
BUT I doubt anyone would consider my life as normal compared to the average person :)

Are there many people other than myself that have used "one does not simply give a puppet an erection" in casual conversation/reply?
I have! - just today, no less ( on twitter, but it still stands and wasn...

yeh, I admit I was stretching a bit coming up with a good subject line - and failed fairly decently, but *shrugs* if you only read this for the subject line, then your loss anyways.
not that I have much to say other than I've been working OT quite a bit this month in order to get things done...
and the weather went from decent...

on the next Gastronomicon, we'll see what tasty treats can be summoned up with guest host Kannibal Klark...
will he survive to be our first ever return host on the show where the food often bites back?

followed by that dimensional favourite, Cooking With Cthulhu, serving up a succulent Shoggoth seasoned with some well-preserved Yuggoth fungi and served upon a plasticine half-polyp spread...

I admit, I'm pretty die-hard and get used to pain - but when I get sick, I usually get very sick... but thankfully I don't get sick very often
but I guess I "lucked out" with the sick-card this time - sort of?
I also admit that I'm one of those that unless I'm nausea-inducing-dizzy sick or v-word sick, I'll just push...

Just to get it out of my system, yes, I AM still very excited for my upcoming vacation in June...
flights, hotel, & shuttle between had been set, and while I normally don't like to pre-plan very much, I did pre-set myself up a tour of Alcatraz for one of the mornings :)
it'll start off w/ the ferry trip there, then a tour plus...

there've been a lot of interesting convos this week... primarily with my officemate, since they're pretty much the only person I talk to daily that's non-work related, but also with a couple friends who called this week
( and, yes, I'm still getting used to this new phone - it has caller ID, but it doesn pop up immediately nor tell me if...

I know, I know, I skipped posting last week... as I do every so often and probably will again... ANYways...

Come mid-June, this Madman's Loose In 'Frisco-land :)
yes, my upcoming vaca is set in stone - hotel booked, flight booked, shuttle booked...
all that remains now is setting up a loose battle plan of what I intend to do and see when I'm...

First off, apologies to the several who had called since this morning's posting - I still haven't picked up/ordered batteries for my phones...
thanks for the calls
if you left a message, I'll have to check them at work if I have the moment(s)
even if I'd have picked up, the best you wouldn't gotten was a "hel..." before...

it's that time of year again where I find out how much bills/charges are going to go up...
of course, most of the household bills are going up - but that's happening all over the area, so I expected it

this means that it's going to be HIGHLY unlikely I'm going to save a thing to be able to vaca next...

I'm Open once again to Vacation Ideas/Recommendations (Solo Travel)...
I'm looking for :
1) somewhere I haven't been/seen (since I'm very not-traveled, this leaves things pretty wide open - no MN or ND!)
2) somewhere a car isn't required (to see the sights/explore the area/get to food/etc.)
3) somewhere in the US (no passport - tried for one...
