Coyote Musings
Coyote handsome
his coat the same brown
as the dust from which he rises


What is the sound of one hand slapping Schroedinger's cat?


The Quantum Duck goes "quark, quark."

Missing Left Sock Beast [userpic]
Home again, home again

When I signed up for Holidailies, I kind of forgot that I would be taking this week-long vacation at my parents' house, which is not particularly condusive to writing posts.

But I am now home. I had a kitchen-gadget-filled Christmas, plus wireless speakers for my iPod and some clothes. (I'm not spoiled - I'm not I'm not I'm not - but I did get a not-Kitchen Aid stand mixer, a set of good knives, a double-boiler and a candy thermometer, so maybe I'm a little spoiled.) I also received Alice in Quantumland, which I have read about halfway through and have probably understood about half of what I've read but I already know I'll be reading it again, and A Brief History of Everything, which I'm also steadily chugging my way through. My sister crocheted me an afghan which I thoroughly enjoyed using at Mom & Dad's, but which presented a few problems for packing and which has resulted in most of my clothing being shipped to me (it was all very convoluted and confusing and I'm still not quite sure what happened), and the other half of her present (to all of us) was a complimentary ticket to the Long Beach Aquarium, which was a pleasant day that I may or may not record more about later. Unusually for my family, we did not make a trip to Disneyland, Downtown Disney, or Disney's California Adventure (which was actually just as well as far as I'm concerned, based on Mom's description of how busy her work location has been this week). I visited with ashenseraph, and am still bummed that the two of us couldn't come up with anything to do for New Year's Eve, which was largely my fault since I flew home today.

I do not make New Year's Resolutions, as I consider them setting myself up for failure. As I am perfectly capable of failing on my own, I see no reason to give me another reason to beat myself up. There are things I will try to do more or less of in 2009, of course, but I will make the changes I need to make as I need to make them.

And now, I'm going to go find my wrist braces, which means I will be getting off the computer because I can't type very well with them on.


Not *your* fault; neither of our places was going to be satisfactory for one reason or the other, and neither of us wanted to be on the freeways with the drunks, so it was just one of those things. We'll figure out something fun next year, and we'll have to try to work out a summer visit one way or the other. Still wouldn't mind meeting you for a writing weekend in Las Vegas; work out that Jack & Mem story, eh?

I didn't know there was an aqarium in Long Beach. Glad you enjoyed yourself.
