Arty McArterson - Portrait of a Young Man as The Artist — LiveJournal

Apparently all I need to do to sleep well is work 11 hours a day.
Fancy that.

I'm taking pictures of the cats again. With my laptop readily available, I even take them off the camera, rename and upload to Scrapbook when I'm done. Hopefully, I shall continue this, make the trend a standard - at least with the immediate upload of pictures. I am considering getting a Flickr account since that site works better, offers more space and integrates with LJ just fine... in the sense that you can post pictures pretty easily and there's a better upload client. I'll likely take a look tomorrow.

Now, I uploaded a bunch of pictures last night of both Poe and Ginger, yet for some reason the pics of Poe didn't work. I managed to break Java on my laptop when I turned off one of the Windows services. Of course, I can't figure out which one it was so Java is ostensibly broken for Firefox. The client LJ offers for scrapbook is terrible, too (again I wish I had a Mac with iPhoto). It's a pay applet that isn't easily setup. Hopefully the JRE I installed last night will fix what I broke in Firefox.

Irrespective of photo hosts and my computer blunders, have another nice photo of Ginger.

Looking at 10 hours today. You know, next week I'm going to wonder where all my work went.

From Two Lumps.

In other news, I have 9.5 days worth of music on my external drive. iRok [sic].
I pointed this out in justphoenix's journal, but I thought I'd mentino it here too.
Activists are trying to get the 22nd Amendment repealed (again).

22nd Amendment:
Section 1. No person shall be elected to the office of the President more than twice, and no person who has held the office of President, or acted as President, for more than two years of a term to which some other person was elected President shall be elected to the office of the President more than once. But this Article shall not apply to any person holding the office of President when this Article was proposed by Congress, and shall not prevent any person who may be holding the office of President, or acting as President, during the term within which this Article becomes operative from holding the office of President or acting as President during the remainder of such term.

Wait... Why are you working 10 hours today?

We're still having lunch, yes?

Because I have lots and lots and lots to do. A lot of lots, perhaps, in the traditional sense? :)

Yes, still having lunch. I'll pick you up around noon.

Willing to lunch on State Street?

I would like to run past the Union, if you have time, and pick up a pair of tickets to EO Wilson's lecture next Wednesday night.

Wait - I'm confused. Some reason, I just got notice that you replied to this post. Strange things are afoot at LJ.

It can be slow occasionally.

Now I don't feel so bad for taking pictures of my cats all the time. Our camera is full of them :)

So long as you don't refer to them as "my children" or post huge posts as if yuo were your cat, it's all good.

I'm a purist. In the cat communities to which I post I keep it brief. Post pictures, maybe talk a little background or a vignette about it. Nothing extolling the amazingosity of MAI KITTAY!

If they repeal the 22nd Amendment, I really am leaving the country. I talked about it if G.W. got re-elected, but repealling the 22nd amendment just has "Bad Idea" written all over it and I would no longer be able to think foreigners were wrong in hating and fearing Americans.
