Sorta writer, sorta photographer, sorta gamer, sorta jokester perfecting the art of saying nothing at all in as many words as possible.

I can be snarky. If you can't take it, suck it up, buttercup.

My Aboot Moi page has more detail.

Not my favourite way of describing it, but I'm a Spoonie.

Lame owl humour?
Sorry, watching David Attenborough nature shows brings it out.

My daughter just stole my joke from 2 years ago while watching a snowy owl documentary on Netflix.
I’m so proud.

So we’re going to give this a try for Family Fun Night, Game Edition. I’m the only one who has played Catan before today (Xbox version) but the gang is excited about it.
The game is a bit pricey but it looks like a neat merging of Ticket to Ride and Settlers of Catan and is way cheaper than buying both!

33 years ago today, everything changed about space travel when Columbia launched on her first test mission.
They were pretty lucky in that multiple malfunctions of the shuttle vehicle didn’t lead to catastrophic failure, which may have created a level of hubris at NASA that led to the loss of Challenger,and later, Columbia herself… but that flight three and a third decades ago ushered in an era which saw us build a station in space allowing us to have more humans up there at once than ever before in human history, and led to more than 100 commercial technological products from a micropump used to keep heart disease patients alive and better prosthetic limbs, to LED lighting and digital cameras, to heat shielding for NASCAR drivers.
Now I just want my flying car.

Strange…

We just finished watching Masters of Sex last night.

I don’t have a lot of energy to explain it but watching it gives me the strangest feelings.

No, not THOSE feelings, you perv.

It’s a kind of melancholy. A sadness both that we treated people (homosexuals, women, etc.) that way, and that in spite of the progress we’ve made there are still people with similar attitudes today.

The WHO only decided that being gay wasn’t a disorder in 1990. Even Masters and Johnson tried to help people by “curing” their homosexuality up until 1977.

As a species, we’re kind of a big sack of crap.
