Looooong day, boring post. Got up at seven, drove up to Paris, had just enough time to have two pairs of glasses made before a meeting with my french soon-to-be-ex-boss, and followed with a night of roleplaying at Chaton's, and a nitecap of three white russians at the Lizard Lounge just downstairs... around 1am. Where Alexis proceeded to tell me, over a diet coke, of her ambitions in the space programs.
She makes me think of the heroine in a Carl Sagan or Arthur C. Clarke novel, geeky, smart, and focused yet ready to have fun... She's currently in France to study dancing for the humanities portion of her degree, because she's ahead of the academic requirements for an aerospace engineering sheepskin. Hangs out with Robyn, the Harp player in the gang, and talks with her hands and eyerolls a lot, while turning down alcohol because of heredity. Laughs like a fifteen year old prom queen :D There's no attraction for me there, but her enthusiasm for manned planetary exploration and engineering subjects strikes a chord with the geek in me, and I wish her much luck getting onto a NASA program and taking mankind to the Stars, or at least the Planets. Anywhere away from this tired, dirty, doomed old basket where we're still keeping all our eggs. May her life outstrip the best the Old Masters ever wrote. For all our sakes.

In these troubling times there are many uncertainties and few unquestioned truths. Rampant confusion plagues the minds of the nervous masses. Order begets chaos in true entropic fashion. As individuals we are powerless to stand against the madness but united we may prevail. We are soldiers; armed with the shield of awareness and the sword of willpower, we stand ready for battle. When all is at an end and the hearts of men are failing them, we will emerge triumphantly and proclaim the new day! There is simply no time for trepidation or anxiety. It saddens me to say that the cowardly, the craven, and the timorous among us are assured an ill fate. We must act swiftly with the time we are given if we are to gain hope for ourselves.

Wow, contact really HAS been made... with the Little Orange Men.

I guess I know when I've been Tangoed, if that reminds the brits out there of anything?

Strange world this is. I actually went and checked out the blog, but it doesn't amount to anything much.

I hope it's OK to be blunt like that? I'm guessing 'hiddenfish' is basically spamming all over and doesn't check back?

Still, good to broaden my vocabulary, useful for the old GRE exam. :D

I'm sure he just spams comments and moves on. You're safe enough. :D

Greg says to Hiddenfish: die scum

He writes like chaton or am I becoming paranoid?

I sure hope geeks can be attractive because this blog thing is starting to take up way too much of my time.

Gregoire, I think we already established that you don't need to worry about your attractiveness.

But yes, they are.
Well, to other geeks anyway ...

Well, pets in this family now include a chaton and a bitch. At least we're safe from having to dispose of a litter ;P
