NCC-1701 Regula

In the depths of the darkness, climbing towards the light. And a sandwich.

The solstice happened earlier today. We've now started climbing out of the dark.

No, the night won't look brighter because of that, 'cause it's night. Tends to be dark, except in the Antarctic Circle right now where it's light all the time, but you know what I mean.

In other good news, something good started today: former DJ Lisa Wood (on Twitter as Lisa Effin' Wood) and her husband Brian Wood joined Portland's burgeoning food cart scene with their sandwich cart, Big-Ass Sandwiches. The shortest day of the year and they were out feeding people with tasty, cheesy, french-fry-laden sammiches (yes, the fries are among the toppings). I plan to be there at lunch tomorrow to have one such sammich. Sandwich. I should say "sandwich." Me saying "sammich" just sounds wrong.

In other other good news (the repeating word thing must be from all that watching of Monty Python and the Holy Grail when I was younger), my work day was productive. I should keep that up.

And this is getting random enough that I'll take it as a sign that I should go to sleep.
