What a Great Saturday!

What a marvelous Saturday in Hampton Roads. Especially for me. The day started well with my picking up then depositing my paycheck. Always a good thing. Received my W-2 so now our taxes can be calculated. Lots of deductions this year, so this is the start of something good. Next was our monthly... Sign in to see full entry.

Dreams of Being God

Some may refer to this blog of mine as evidence that I suffer from delusions of grandeur, that I am full of myself, or that my sense of self-importance has gone too far. Rest easy; it is only a dream of being God, not the desire to actually fill that position or even to aspire to being able to do... Sign in to see full entry.

A Fine Ouzo Evening Revisted

After watching a bit of the telly this evening, I figured I would reward myself for sitting still for two hours. I rummaged through the cabinets and found a mostly empty bottle of Ouzo. Item two was the coffee pot with old cold coffee, which I reheated, mixing amounts of both in a large cup. Heavy... Sign in to see full entry.

Another Pending Temporal Transition

We are at the boundary of two years, 2008 and 2009. We will be pushed across the transome of time in a bit less than 24 hours, like it or not. Time marches on is a cliche used too often. Yes, it does, and we march with it, sometimes unwillingly. Tonight, for me, it will be willingly. 2009 promises... Sign in to see full entry.

Yule: The Short and the Long of It

Yule, also known as the Winter Solstice, today, is the shortest day of the year, and, thus, the longest night of the year. From here on until the Summer Solstice, days will get longer, nights will get shorter. And, of course, it is a celebration of lights, renewal of hope that better days are ahead....

Dreaming of a Blue Christmas?

Fortunately, Christmas is not one of the holidays I celebrate, but for those who do, it is not such a happy, jolly, joyous day as it should be. Many people from dysfunctional families, people who have mental aberrations themselves, people who are simply away from family and friends find the season... Sign in to see full entry.

Twilight -- The Movie

Twilight was a disappointment. I'm not sure if it was a disappointment because of the movie itself, or because I had read the books it is based on. The books were very good. I'm glad I went to see the movie, but more to see some of my favorite scenes in the book, to see ho they were filmed, than to... Sign in to see full entry.
