Postscript to Experiment 651

We plan to go to Jack Stack’s 95th and Metcalf

The first experiment was successful, I enjoyed lunch with my father and sister; they were parking as I was approaching the restaurant so my timing could not have been better.

I’m continuing to wait for that refund;
the theater wasn’t right, the movie wasn’t Wonder Woman;
next time Bennigan and I get together, I’m buying the food.

Despite the vector of Dashie I have chosen, she’s drinking non-alcoholic cider, ‘Captain, Captain | Captain Morgan’ was twice funny in as many showings during Doctor Who on BBC America.

“We can see Wonder Woman next week. You seem to have a busy weekend. There’s a showing at 5, we can meet up around 4 somewhere and get something to eat first.”

Gal Gadot almost quit acting, then got ‘Wonder Woman’

“And you were dead in the trespasses and sins in which you once walked,
following the course of this world, following the prince of the power of the air,
the spirit that is now at work in the sons of disobedience–
among whom we all once lived in the passions of our flesh,
carrying out the desires of the body and the mind,
and were by nature children of wrath,
like the rest of mankind. (Ephesians 2:1-3)”

As perfect a Thursday 050

My father asked me, “You work Saturdays now, huh?”

Unexpectedly, “Don’t mess him up,”
my sister interjected before we both replied, “It’s Thursday, David.”

“He is the LORD our God; his judgments are in all the earth.
He remembers his covenant forever, the word that he commanded,
for a thousand generations, (Psalms 105:7-8)”

Every Which Way but News 090

A while ago, I tried to share “4 Struggles of Driving With Glasses” on Twitter and ended up with the whole text, so enjoy:

“Unlike snorkeling, crawling and walking backwards, driving is one of the most efficient ways of getting from one place to another. Plus, there’s just something invigorating about sitting behind the wheel, windows down, cruising, favorite tunes blasting. That’s not to say you can’t have your favorite tunes blasting while you walk backward, but it’s just not the same.  And yet, driving does have some downfalls. From massive traffic build-ups to bad drivers merging into your lane, you have to be prepared for anything.  Here are four reasons why driving with glasses can add more hassle to your commute.

1. Forgetting your glasses Forgetting your glasses is bad for everybody on the road — you, pedestrians, other drivers, possums… Blurry vision could impair your reaction time to things like other drivers braking or switching lanes. Plus, if your license states that you drive with corrective lenses and you’re not wearing your specs, you could run the risk of getting a ticket.

2. Losing your glasses in the car You go to rearrange your glasses and boom, they fly into that black abyss between your chair and the middle compartment. You feel around, but this is already reminding you of the Last French Fry Incident of June 2014. Which is to say they’re gone, man. There is no way you’re getting them back without pulling over. And who knows what else you’ll find down there? (Spoiler alert: it’s that French fry).

3. Cleaning your lenses  It’s looking like an especially foggy day, which is odd because the sun is out and shining. Even odder is that that the thick wall of fog moves when your head moves. That’s because it’s not fog, my friend, it’s your glasses. They’re smudged beyond recognition, which is unfortunate because you either have nothing to wipe your glasses with or your microfiber cloth already has peanut butter on it because don’t ask.

4. Non-transitional lenses  There’s nothing like having a sun visor that’s too short to block the sun’s probing, glaring rays from piercing your eyes. Do your job, sun visor. If you don’t have transitional lenses, it’s even worse. You could just do the Cool Dude Double — that’s where you wear sunglasses over your regular glasses and they just bump awkwardly into one another. Good look!

 If you’re sick of letting glasses add unnecessary drama to your commute, ditch ‘em. There are other solutions to vision corrections, and if you haven’t considered LASIK in a while, now might be the right time to look into it. It’s come a long way in 18 years and you can learn more at http://www.backinfocus.com.”

Summary of Improv Goals 040

Much time has passed since any entry in this series, and I have seen no live improv in almost two months. Saturday, Ham Kitty is playing again and JH Design is having an opening.

‘Songspot’ is an improv game where someone in the center of a circle starts a song, when another player has a song, and they tag in. Objectively, the idea is to think of a song before the person in the center has  ‘suffered’ too long.

I was kind of put on the spot tonight. Sometimes I’m reminded of a song by a few words someone says, but a song of my choosing, and not a song by a specific artist; a frailty was exposed. I was vanquished and not in the good Aston Martin way. My ego is bruised.

‘The important thing in life is not victory but combat;
it is not to have vanquished…
The Ball Pit meme is the only good thing to come out of DashCon
PixelKittiesDashcon- Not what anybody expected.

Quotation Is a Serviceable Substitute for Wit
L’esprit de l’escalier or l’esprit d’escalier (literally, staircase wit) is a French term used in English that describes the predicament of thinking of the perfect comeback too late.”

I have been challenged to ‘learn the ways of the people,’ The All-American Rejects; Winger; and Jimmy Eat World, with whom some of my friends say they attended high school.

Day late, … short 015

There’s always something I forget; some songs were already on to the SD card, some songs I’d forgotten about.

Sir Paul McCartney at 75: The highs and lows

This time, I was asked to come up with a goal for myself and one for my supervisor, “according to our new arrival, life is more than mere survival?”

“Jesus said to her, ‘I am the resurrection and the life. Whoever believes in me, though he dies, yet shall he live, and everyone who lives and believes in me shall never die. Do you believe this?’ (John 11:25-26)”

Backdating’s not a pretty picture. I don’t like doing it!”
