In other news, tomorrow is the ex's birthday. I actually got a twinge of guilt thinking that I didn't get her anything. I was so sorely tempted, while in the store, to buy her a card. GAH! Message to self: Stop being a chump! She is not your problem or concern anymore! Shesh! What does it take, an ice-pick to get her out of my skull? Ah, it's not even that I miss her per se, but damnit, I miss having someone to care about. I miss my place in the universe. You know, I can be a critical asshole when I put my mind to it. Sometimes, I get downright disgruntled at what passes for my fellow man sometimes. I need someone to whom to be nice, who allows me to create some happiness, in order to have some kind of "karmic balance" in my life. Ah well, it's probably well enough that I don't have someone in my life anyway. I'm up to my eyebrows in alligators at work and with McGuffin. I know full well how badly those two things would suffer if I had someone over whom to be foolishly besotted.
I saw something really interesting and weird today. A cow-orker of mine, from the next cube over, (David, the expatriate New Yorker; not Sergei, the bubble-wrap-poppin' Russian) sent me a link from the East Coast "Rag of Record" a.k.a. The New York Times. [requires free registration] Apparently, ever since Da Vinci first tried it, people have been attempting to make shoes that would allow them to walk on water -- this of course, to no avail. Well Yoav Rosen, unlike about 100 other American inventors since 1858, has actually patented a device that seems to work as advertised. Is that weird, or what. Hey fearsclave, you've got to get yourself some of these. You'll be the terror of every fish within a hundred leagues of your house.
