Just checking in while watching Invasion of the Body Snatchers in my Topics in English: Science Fiction class. Excellent class so far. I need to finish rereading Starship Troopers and answer the question why Johnny Rico stays a soldier. Should be fun

Well I’m off to my second physical therapy of the week, aka the place where they alternately have you exercise while they ignore you, strangely massage the area where you’ve had surgery and digging their fingers into one’s knee like it was a piece of molding clay.
Well, after a long, hectic, and insane semester, I finally have time to write again. This semester has been insanely busy with my five classes, two of which I liked, three of which can bite me. The two I liked ended up being from my new major, Minorities in the United States and Sociology of Religion. The latter was a fascinating study of religion as a definite social construct and I’ll have to make a note to cover it a bit in one of my future posts. Damn my forgetful memory.
I am eleven days out of ACL surgery. I’d love to say that I tore it pursuing a beautiful woman but in truth I severely tore it about a month ago when sparing in Tae Kwon Do. Percocet is a wonderful thing… At least until the withdrawal hits. I’m off to a teacher evaluation for one of the adjunct faculty so I’ll be back on later.
Ah, here comes the end of the semester. I’m sorry that classes have drawn me away from the blog, but here I am, I’m back!
I am currently listening to my TCP-IP professor tell us the difference between Version 4 and 5 of Kerberos authentication. Hurray for the last class! Maybe I’ll be able to figure out where I’m going from here in life.
So I’ll leave you with this riddle:
What is the sound of one hand clapping?
Hello there my purely biological bretheren, it is good to see you again. I must apologize for my lengthly absense. This semester has been a great deal more trouble than previous ones and as such I have neglected my poor blog. I say here that I will endevor to return to writing on this blog. I look forward to hearing from the people who have been commenting.
It is time… for a change. I say to you today, my fiends that even though we face the difficulties of today and tomorrow, I still have a dream. I have a dream that one day
warlocks atheists will rise up and cast off the shackles of oppression.
I have a dream that one day we will no longer be judged upon how different we are from you.
I have a dream that one day, we will be looked at and labeled simply, as ‘friend’.
I have a dream that one day, when this all occurs, that we take advantage of surprise and slaughter as many of you as possible. I have a dream that one day there will be no structure left standing, no man or woman left un-decapitated and no babies left un-devoured. I have a dream that none of you are spared from the horrors of our rule.
FREE AT LAST! YOU’RE ALL DEAD, BUT WE ARE FREE AT LAST!
I just found this via the blog SoulofStarTrek and thought it was absolutely hilarious. It is Neil Gaiman’s (Author of Stardust and American Gods) riff on David Tennant’s Doctor (Doctor Who for those not in the know) as Hamlet:
“To be, or not to be, that is the question. Weeelll…. More of A question really. Not THE question. Because, well, I mean, there are billions and billions of questions out there, and well, when I say billions, I mean, when you add in the answers, not just the questions, weeelll, you’re looking at numbers that are positively astronomical and… for that matter the other question is what you lot are doing on this planet in the first place, and er, did anyone try just pushing this little red button?”
It’s spot on for Tennant’s Doctor character and he does deserve a little teasing because he’s going from Doctor Who to playing Hamlet with Patrick Stewart.
