09:59 am - A busy weekend, war, wildlife relocation, and a photo
Oh, a busy freakin' weekend it was, but I got a lot of things done. The tree is up, my new computer is fixed (in this case, "new" = "hand me down"), and my walk and driveway are clear of snow. I went to the Zoo and checked out the lights.

Last night, around 2 AM, I relocated some impressively-legged wildlife to the great outdoors. She did not take kindly to the sudden change in temperature.

I didn't get time to call the people I wanted to, namely romandruid and aislinggheal. This annoys me, because I was really hoping to solve the time/location issue, though a 6:30 PM start time at aislinggheal's house sounds like it's a go on her end, at least.

While listening to the classic song, War, I realized that war is the one thing that can really seperate humans from every other living thing on this planet. I can't think of anything else that is unique to humans.

And this morning I looked at my LJ to find a lovely picture that should come with my next WWF update. Thank you, shizukagozen. Some of you have already seen it, but you'll get to see it again.

I admit to feeling a bit out-of-sorts recently. That has, generally, been changing. And it will continue to change, I think. The North Wind licked my face this weekend.

There's a Golden Delicious Apple on my desk, awaiting my pleasure. It may sound a bit dirty to put it like that, but if you knew what went through my mind as I ate one, you'd think that was tame.

I won't be responding to the comments already left on my last entry. I think I said everything I needed to in the entry itself. While I like to make my journal a conversation, I don't think that there's much conversation left on that one. I've said my peace.

Poll #632115 Poll 13: What would you do for a Chronarchy Bar?

I'm updating my webpage, target date is currently 12/17/05. What would you like to see? Are there sections you'd like updated? Any suggestions?

the more abstract reasons are mere veils for the less abstract ones. look deeply into how many bar fights start over women, or how many wars have access to important resources (be it oil, a river that allows for trade, or a coastline), and all the other stuff becomes immaterial.

I once got in trouble in a class for suggesting that war can occur over women. That was a blast and a half, let me tell you.

I ended up re-telling the Golden Apple myth.

"That's not real!" protested the girl. She was rather cute, so I debated whether to respond, and on what level to respond. Finally, I just gave in.

"Sure it is." I dug into my bag, pulling out my Principia. "It says so right here, in this holy book. If it's in a sacred text, it must be true."

And I sat down. She didn't talk to me for the entire quarter. Being a smartass had once again won out over getting to talk to the cute girl.

In my defense, it was a religious studies class.
