Wishin’, And Hopin’, and Thinkin’, and Prayin’
For those small amount of you on the venn diagram who read me but don’t regularly read my Leahpeah, I point you to the latest update, with ultrasoundy goodness, on the gestational progress and situation.
Save a prayer for us all.
And what else? It’s been quite a few weeks. I’ve been sick quite a bit — first it was my gut – el vomito y more. This week it was la flema amarilla. Yucko. I hate being sick.
Finished up my contract in Ojai today. I liked Ojai. It sure did get hot there, but the place was real nice, and the people were real nice too. And hey, thirty years ago they filmed some car chases from Smokey and the Bandit there. I learned a great deal in dealing with my agency how I will do things differently next time that comes around, I mean, assuming it does. I also learned a bit about the markup attendant to my rate (77%, actually). Valuable intelligence, my friend. Knowledge is power.
Hrm, what else, my wife’s writing was featured on the Huffington Post the other day: “Feminist” Is An Eight-Letter Word: Talking with Gloria Steinem. How cool is that?
When I was sick this week I did a pile of laundry, which still awaits its folding. Sad, that. Though clean unfolded clothes are preferable to unclean unfolded clothes.
BBEdit and Interarchy and Mac OS X have all updated in the past few months, and I’m behind the curve on all of them. Too much Windows-emphasis from me right now! Sad! I’ll catch up before Christmas.
Speaking of goals, dude, I want a bike. Bike before Christmas is a goal as well.
Oh, and fixing San Diego Bloggers, which, merde! is utterly broken and has been for over a month. Sorry charlie. My old bad code was prone to SQL injection attacks and it died. I feel pretty bad about it, but with how busy I’ve been it’s fallen by the wayside. Sorry to the folks out there. Check bloggernetwork.org. Leah’s working on that one.
On the organized religion front, I’m not very impressed by my Pope’s recent comments. I mean, it’s simply uncouth to point out the butchery done in the name of someone else’s religion. Probably better to be contrite about the bloodshed your own religion has caused. It hurts me to my heart. I quite like this acknowledgement from the Catechism of the Catholic Church:
The Church’s relationship with the Muslims. “The plan of salvation also includes those who acknowledge the Creator, in the first place amongst whom are the Muslims; these profess to hold the faith of Abraham, and together with us they adore the one, merciful God, mankind’s judge on the last day.”
On Monday I start a new job, and I’m looking forward to it.
There are other irons in the fire for me too, but for now, that’s enough.
Have a nice weekend y’all.
