Living in Florida

As much as I miss Boston, and wish to move back, there are some things you just don't get up there. I just spent 15 minutes picking mangoes off the tree in the back yard. To wit:
Mangoes!
Mangoes!



Also: OM NOM NOM NOM!

Higher Ed Gets higher

 Time to come out of my posting withdrawal to again ask for some generous folk to contribute towards the education of my african fried Hadi. If you recall last year about this time I raised $300 to send him to college for Civil Engineering for a year. He's doing OK, last semester his GPA was 2.8, but he thinks this semester he got it over 3. Since his house only has a roof on some rooms, I think that's pretty good. Anyway, it's time for next years tuition, and, like everywhere else in the world, it's gone up. Still only $350 for a year though, so better than Harvard. Hell, better than the Saxby Bend Community College of Southern North Dakota.

Like last time email celebes@gmail.com and I'll send you the paypal info.

Thanks everyone, for last time, and for this time.

I feel like smeared ass-paste today. The CPAP is not doing it's job, I was nodding off on the drive into work. Loaded up on coffee and Provigil, which should make me pleasant to be around for the afternoon. At least I'll be conscious. So this means another round of doc visits and maybe trying to move my sleep study up so I don't have to wait till December.

I'm particularly dreading the sleep doctor visit, because he'll tell me to lose weight. Which, yes, would be good, but until I have enought energy to stay upright at a desk for 8 hours, I won't be running any damn marathons.  Or he'll prescribe topamax the 'dumb but thin' drug that's also good for rapid cycling bipolars. Yeah, gimme that, sounds great.
