This post will be about nothing important.
I'm going to discuss random, meaningless issues.
There will be no sum up.
I might not even make a list ...
No, here's a list:
1. I'm stuck on writing on the dissertation, at a very crucial time, because I have family commitments. These family commitments mean there is no schedule because that's how the rest of my family roll. I have to have a schedule so ... I'm grading and surfing the 'net this morning because if I start to work and then someone interrupts that my spleen will fall out. That's messy. We don't want that.
2. I put my child's hair up in a ponytail for the first time. It was The World's Tiniest Ponytail (tm). The cute factor was off the charts. Here's a picture:
It's an action shot because, these days, there are no other shots.
Note the blurring at the top of the photo. She's on the move.
C. (yes. I did that on purpose. calm down). The Pentagon is doing this:
To which I have only this to say:
Good idea, asses. No. Really. Not being sarcastic AT ALL. ::cough::
I love it when government agencies do things we all know end in worldwide calamity. Really.
Also, in other news, a writer AND EDITOR at wired.com thinks a headline like "Pentagon Looks to Breed Immortal 'Synthetic Organisms,' Molecular Kill-Switch Included" is fine, not at all awkward, and will not make writers everywhere stabby. Especially when you realize that person is being paid to create that awkward word choice.
IV. I have a fever blister. It hurts and looks unsightly. I am very bitter about it.
This is not my fever blister. This is Snowpocalypse from space. Feel free to go outside and give the satellite the finger. I would.
6. A new alien conspiracy!!!
Remember that collision between two asteroids in the belt that Hubble caught awhile ago? Apparently, it's really an alien craft!!
I love this video for the music alone. It's not at all hyperbolic or anything.
Thank you to Andre Heath, the maker of said video and to TheAlienProject for the use of it. Heck, who knows? You may be right. I'm certainly not ruling anything interesting out. I was completely disappointed when the cool sky thing in Europe turned out to be a Russian rocket.
