(no subject)

I've been busy all day (yay!), so I haven't updated.

I talked to TapWave. Rather than having bad news or reasons they can only hire me under some sort of awful circumstances, they only had questions about my competence.

I interview quite well. Those were taken care of.

I've got a job offer. I start when I get back from Japan. Yay!

Overdue Brezsny

Brezsny told the Gemini on Wednesday:

At this point in your journey, Gemini, your free will is a more important factor in determining your fate than the constraints of karma or the whims of the gods. I won't waste your time, then, predicting what may or may not lie ahead. Instead, I'll invite you to formulate self-fulfilling prophecies about the beautiful future you want to create. To help tease out your brainstorms, I offer you a few of the laws of life articulated by Hawaiian shaman Serge Kahili King: 1. The world is what you think it is. 2. There are no limits; everything is possible. 3. Energy flows where attention goes. 4. Now is the moment of power. 5. To love is to be happy. 6. All power comes from within.

Thanks, Rob!

Just so it's written somewhere...

Awhile back (quick google search thinks 1998 -- has it been that long?), Brezsny wrote a horoscope for me that really changed my life, though not precisely due to the advice contained therein. I figured I should write it down, just to have done so, so that I'll have a copy sitting around if I ever look for it.

Here it is:

I confess I am now under the spell of an ingenious enchantress who has bewitched me with her sublime gorgeousness. I'm sure you understand what I mean, Gemini. My reading of the astrological aspects tells me that you, too must be in a lather over an acutely cute creature. Would you like to plagiarize the love note I just gave my heroine? Here 'tis; steal away. "I want you and me to put on shower caps and climb a hill at dusk in the January drizzle to stage a water balloon fight while singing songs from West Side Story. I want to play strip Scrabble with you in a Malaysian treehouse while amorous tigers boink below. When summer comes, I want to dress up as teenage hoodlums and go hunting for potential pet grasshoppers in a dandelion meadow next to a trailer park while chanting passages from the Bhagavad Gita."

Oral Surgeon

I think I'm going to start using the word "tactectomy" more often. As in: "Ouch! I see your catty response is up and about again after its radical tactectomy." Or "I could respond to that, but my only available response has had a full tactectomy".
