I listen

Timing is everything (Stumptown Comics)

This I wanted to share separately:

Here's Mike Russell talking to his jet-setting actor friend Ryan McCluskey -- yes, this is Ryan's IMDb listing -- through the power of Skype on a laptop, photographed at the same time by me and another friend of Mike's. In the second photo, those are my arms and my yellow coat and my camera. I just like the moment-symmetry of this.


Mike Russell at the con, Ryan McCluskey on the computer. Mike approves.

New coat of paint, with more words to come

Yep, finally decided to change the look of my LJ. I'd had the previous look (the nicely subtle "Nautical" style I first saw on the great robyn_ma's journal) for years; felt like it was time to try something else. Though the vast number of (in my opinion) ugly journal styles made me careful. (Not that I could design better.)

This...this should work.
Flavored Calories.

That was a close one

For the first time in 20-plus years of eating many, many boneless skinless chicken breasts, I almost bit into a bit of bone.

Good thing my DOES NOT COMPUTE sensation slowed down my biting and my find-out-what-that-is sensation kicked into place. I have no desire to get stabbed by my food. Or by anything, even.

The bit of bone got through? Obviously warning lights weren't flashing down in Quality Control.

Otherwise, so far it's good, and (so far) bereft of further bones.
