Hey,

So in my dreams last night I was hanging out with Batman (as you do). This is the "Bold and the Brave" version of Batman for those playing at home.

Anyway, we get lost in time and space (as you do), but the interesting part is that we show up in "previous episodes" of Batman: The Brave and the Bold. And I recall those earlier episodes and remember these weird non-sequitur moments when Batman or some other super-hero would flash in and out of existence and I realize that now I'm seeing those moments from the other side -- the creators had woven these little off-kilter moments into episodes throughout the series and now they were tying it all up in this one. Thus confirming that Batman: The Brave and the Bold is awesome television.

But what I remember most is standing around thinking: "Well, if I'm going to be lost in time and space, it's a good thing I'm lost with Batman".

"Who? That chump can't even drive his own time machine!"

Hi,

Interesting set of dreams this morning:

1.) It was evening, but the sun had set early so it was dark out, and I'm driving along when I looked up and saw shooting stars. They'd just suddenly appear as bright points in the sky and then shoot off in a random direction leaving a trail behind. But these meteors got quite a ways down into the atmosphere because they'd get brighter and then suddenly burst into a bright cloud followed by a boom. It was really pretty neat.

2.) But right after that, it got light out again. And I'm like, "hey, it's still 8pm and it was dark just a minute ago, what gives?". Eventually, Bill Nye the Science Guy tried to explain how it was some weird effect of orbital mechanics -- something about the tilt of the Earth and stuff. I really wasn't buying his explanation though.

3.) I was at a convention running this large, complex wargame. There was this huge model of a WWII aircraft carrier. The scenario was that a hurricane had beached the carrier on a South Pacific island. Now the Japanese were attacking by land, sea and air and the carrier had to fend them all off. There must have been a few US warships in the area because otherwise the Japanese would've just shelled the thing to scrap (or maybe the Japanese only had a couple small ships or something). It struck me as a neat idea.

Hi,

So there's this dog. He's a really mean dog. How mean is he? Well, there's this other pair of dogs, they're married see, and the mean dog is stealing away the wife dog and making her his bitch -- expect when he makes the husband dog wear a wig and dress so he can be his bitch.

That's one mean dog.
Tom

p.s. Also! Someone is moving into the apartment next door to us. I can hardly wait till they figure out our "alternative" lifestyle. :)

p.p.s. Crap! I'm buying a house! AUUUUGGGGHHHH!

Batman vs. The Doctor (3rd Doctor, Jon Pertwee)?

Surprisingly, according to my REM state -- the utility belt is no match for the sonic screwdriver...like...at all.

"The boy and I were doing just fine until you showed up!"
Tom

p.s. Don't horn in on the Doctor's investigations. He gets testy.

...well, more of a moronic travel agent.

I wanted to go to Disney World.

But the tickets I got sent me first to Houston and then to Vancouver. None of which gets me to Kissimmee.

*sigh*

Hey,


  • Today I saw a pretty large turtle crossing the on-ramp to Rte. 2. It was a bit bigger than our cat. I have a fondness for turtles. They start with the letter T.

  • If you have my EstateWorks email address, I don't work there no more and you should get a new email address from me. [livejournal.com profile] deadwinter, [livejournal.com profile] tisana I'm looking in your general direction specifically because that's where your email went.

  • Last night I stole a cargo plane to fly to some other country where I stole an old Russian cargo plane so I could sneak into Russia for some secret mission. Mostly I just groused about how awful Russia was. On the way out (via comercial airline flight and not stolen air-conveyances), I ran into Sammy Davis Jr. and warned him about how crappy Russia was. He agreed but a gig was a gig. Classy guy, that Sammy, classy guy.

  • My mom is flying out to Seattle (again, via commercial flight) to visit my sister and pick up my nephew to take him back to NE for the summer. She's travelling without my dad. But she's not going alone. She's going with my Aunt Jeanene. Pretty much a fate worse than death.

  • My mom will also be travelling in the company of an as-yet undetermined quantity of frozen meat. This is the latest episode in my mom's constant (and constantly failed) attempts to ship food to places that...uh...have food. My bet is that whatever system she rigs up for carrying the meat will fail and she'll have to explain why her luggage is leaking blood to grim-faced security guards. If this happens, Aunt J. will probably have a brain aneurism right then and there.

  • Finally, my first job here at work is on a Flash project. I haven't done very much Flash and I haven't done it in awhile. No one else around here has a huge amount of experience with it either. The docs are pretty much non-existent and the action script debugger...well, there isn't a debugger. If people know of some really solid places to get examples or if they know a lot about why scrollbars don't actually change when you change their properties, drop me a line. (OK, I've got a ton of questions besides scrollbars and most of them are more important, but scrollbars are visible and show progress, whereas namespace event handler extensions are invisible and show nothing.)

Hey,

So yesterday I cracked the top of my skull on a low-hanging concrete support beam in the office complex where I work. Nearly concussed myself. Anyway, it really hurts today (memo to self: head tattoos will *not* be a happy).

But apparently it jostled my crown shakra because not only was I dreaming something fierce last night, I actually had a few moments of lucid dreaming which are really rare for me, and after I willed my coat back into existence (I was looking for it), I started flying...well, floating to low altitude might best describe it. It was pretty fun before my subconscious distracted me and took control again.

Also, am totally having a blast with [livejournal.com profile] spiritseeker's Tomb Raiders in Space game. I'm the nutty professor with a piece of precursor tech jammed into his head. It helps that my sidekick is [livejournal.com profile] gentlesamurai. We make the Captain cry.

Hrm...

So I had a dream last night where there were these Orcs who had started up a mock version of the Knights of the Round Table because they thought it was stupid so they made up their own knightly order.

But then, centuries later, the thing had gone from a lame joke to a deadly serious reality. The orcs really did have an order of knighthood and although it embodied orcish ideals, it was a real organization and a real threat.

Then, centuries after that, the orcish knights dwindled away and were the laughingstock of the orc lands because they were so stodgy and dumb.

Might be a fun thing to develop sometime...

Gather 'round children...

When Scrooge McDuck penetrated the Gates of Heaven to stake a claim on the vast riches of the Celestial Kingdom, the righteous souls were greatly disturbed by the appearance of the hulking exo-skeleton Scrooge was using. As always, the resourceful duck quickly hit upon a clever plan and disguised his suit as a giant boulder of solid gold. Not only was a roving boulder of gold something the rapturous souls of the afterlife would accept and ignore without comment, but it also had the added benefit of revealing the presence of Scrooge's rivals (chiefly John D. Rockerduck) who tended to gape in amazement.
