The Life and Times of Omar, Tentmaker
Show me what this thought is worth.

My half-brother Edward, he died on Mother's Day;
His ashes are on our mantel, his sailboat tied at our wooden quay.
He'll no longer sail her or bail her, that floating testament
To the different-drummer-marching wanderlusty life he spent.

My mother's sister Judy, she died on Father's Day;
Her ashes are on our mantel, her sailboat tied at our wooden quay.
She'll no longer ride the waves nor sing songs of the sea;
The breeze among the rigging hums her honored memory.

Two souls freed this passing year, two minstrel travellers,
A coronary snatched his life, cancer slowly unraveled hers;
And we are left behind with loss and far too little sense
To grasp the meaning underneath such grave coincidence.

I had a new life experience at Karate this Saturday-- namely, what it's like to get knocked down by a punch to the face.

It was mostly my own fault--I was moving in & suddenly found my head and my partner's fist trying desperately to occupy the same space. Guy's fist is so big that a top knuckle went in my right eye (which sports a little shiner) & a bottom knuckle contacted my right front tooth (which is fine). Most surprising was the insta-headache, which went away as quickly as it started.

All in good fun. I was able to continue the training, though somewhat addled & teary on one side. But hey, I guess that's the price of discovering something new!

My sinuses still hurt a little on that side when I chew.

anann73 made her obligatory wedding post, so I guess it's up to me now. What can I say? It was a wonderful day filled with wonderful people, and I got hitched to a wonderful woman. I got to marry the one that got away. Who gets to do that?

Sometimes the universe is all right.

Thanks to everyone who made it so great. I loved seeing those faces and hearing those voices and being around my people. I wish I saw and spoke to each & every one of you more than I do!

On the woad again
I can't wait to get on the woad again
The life I love is killing Romans with my friends
I can't wait to get on the woad again

It's a little unnerving:
air bubbles escaping boiling eggs
sound kinda like chicks.

I just walked out on the back deck
and brushed my hand on the vinyl siding
looking for the lightswitch.

"You're limping!"
"Yes, I jammed my toes yesterday."
"How did you do that?"
"Kicking a girl."
"Not on purpose, I hope!"
"Well, I didn't jam my toes on purpose..."

This is that post people make when they haven't been on livejournal much. It talks about how livejournal is an important part of life but the owner of this account just hasn't had the time and energy to keep up with it, neither on the reading nor writing end, and probably won't in the forseeable future, as life is overly serious, filled with strife, and entirely too busy. The account owner also mentions that his home phone will be disconnected soon so if you want to call him you'll have to use his cell phone, and if you don't have that number you should email him. And he hopes you are all doing well and having a happy start to 2007.
