As promised, here are a few pics of my new ride! (Not the best pictures I have ever taken.) It’s a 2009 MINI Cooper John Cooper Works Hardtop.

Talk Like A Pirate 2008

Sheesh! It has been far too long... I don’t know whether to pat myself on the back for getting another blog entry in before September ends, or to chide myself allowing more than a month to pass in-between blog entries!

Anyway, the reason for this post is simply to inform you that it’s September 19th: Talk Like A Pirate Day! This time, even Google’s gotten in on the pirate action! You know... you really should take advantage of the only opportunity this year to call your boss a Scurvy Dog, Bilge Rat, or even Scallywag, and get away with it! (Is "scallywag" a pirate word? I don’t know. Let’s pretend that it is, for the time being. Let’s also pretend that your boss will actually let you call her/him that without consequences... sweet!)

I still have me pirate eyepatch here at work from last year's Pirate Day. Yes, I am wearing it. I had to take off me pirate spectacles to wear it though, so you can just call me "Reddish-Brown Beard: The Cyclopic Myopic Scourge of the Seven Seas"! Arrr...

In other news, I picked up my 2009 MINI John Cooper Works hardtop! It is way too fast, and way too cool, for a ragged buccaneer such as myself. But, I love it anyway! It is beautiful. I’ll post pictures soon. Happy Friday, and happy swashbuckling!

Life is... slow.

Claudia: check out this Creepy Spider photo!

It's been an atypically lazy summer for me... I've spent most of my free time hibernating in my house, attempting (unsuccessfully) to avoid the heat.

It looks like Autumn is going to be action-packed though, with a trip up to Wyoming next month followed by a flight to South Carolina in November, to visit my aunt and meet several relatives I haven't yet had the pleasure of getting to know.

The MINI's in the shop right now, so I'm forced to putt around in my slow, banged-up Mazda pickup for the time being. WAAAA!! (I am such a baby sometimes.) But seriously, once you drive a MINI Cooper, driving anything else is just not as much fun!

I'm planning on taking a break from school for the second fall term. During my hiatus I plan on finishing a new web design for this site, putting my new weblog into production and revamping the I-Ching: Oracle of Change application. My plans for the latter include a web services layer, a re-vamped Flash interface, and membership support so that people can save previous readings and stuff like that.

This afternoon, it's off to Galisteo, NM for an afternoon of barbeque, beer, and vulture-watching.

The first fall term for school started a couple of weeks ago. The coursework is easy but the reading is KILLING ME. We're talking instant drowsiness upon merely opening the book here. Aside from the boring reading, the class is okay, even if our 'computer lab' is also a run-down chemistry lab that smells funny.

The 2003 MINI Cooper S I bought last month is turning out to be a lot of fun. It's a speedy little car, at least while I'm not running the A/C. The 6-speed transmission is taking a little getting-used-to, but it's awesome to be in a car that can actually dodge the potholes!

Work has been super-busy, and my next leave is in early October (hopefully). Until then, I'll be working my tail off but hopefully also having some serious fun to compensate.

Happy first birthday to A.J., and peace to the tribe...
