tether the beast

Two immigrants arrive in the United States and are discussing the difference between the Old Country and the U.S. One of them says that he's heard that people in the U.S. eat dogs, and if they're going to fit in, they better eat dogs as well. So they head to the nearest hot dog stand and order two 'dogs.' The first guy unwraps his, looks at it, and nervously looks at his friend. "What part did you get?"

around 3:10am my cable goes out, comes back up in 5 minutes. while my internet connection is still up, browser points to comcast download page. unfortunately, the installation wizard's looking for IE, which is corrupted on my system. so right now i don't have internet connection. this old win98 box is wheezing anyway & almost a goner. giving myself 72 hours to get astroschyzy 4-10 up before everything collapses. most of the work completed offline anyway. just grabbing VOC tables right now. need to also figure out moon-sun positions for moon phases. i'll work on stuff at home, when done bring it over to my sister's computer to upload.

got up early to see older baby brother off. standing around with big sis as brother finished packing. we started talking about coincidences over the last two days & i said, it's either god or conspiracy theory. several weeks ago blessed elder niece says she's running away from home (it must be genetic!) because she told her mom she didn't believe in god. she learned god was a hoax in a cartoon. her mom got very upset. so i brought this up this morning & big sis says, she really does believe in god, but ... and then tells me the poor thing has already been called nigger twice. then we talk about how many times each of us has been called nigger.

what a great way to start the morning!

cleaned up dishes & made breakfast for littlest niece. only have a smidgen of coffee left, but still got some smokes.
