Poor Dead Weekend

I think I stabbed it to death with my soldering iron and left the body somewhere in the Glaske Science and Engineering Building.

I think.

I don't really remember.

Life Goes On

I had a fun and exciting day yesterday.

I spent all afternoon in the ER, and all I got was this sore spot on my hand from the IV line.

See, I had gotten sick again. All the same old unexplainable symptoms: extreme fatigue, increased heart rate, shortness of breath. Being sick and tired of feeling like I was about to die for no particular reason, I got my roommate to take me to the emergency room yesterday around 1 in the afternoon. Five hours and multiple tests later, they sent me home with instructions to eat more tomatoes because my potassium level was a bit low, and antibiotics for a minor UTI.

The results for the thyroid tests are supposed to get back in the next day or two, but somehow I don't think anything will show up there, either.

This has been going on for about five years now, and the spells are worse than they used to be. It's all a trifle scary.

I just want to know why I feel so horrible sometimes.

A Pretty Picture

Oops. Never did get around to posting on Monday.

Oh, well. In a humble spirit of penitence, I bring you this link:

Panoramic View from Everest

It has also come to my attention repeatedly that I never technically said anywhere whether I got that job with Rockwell Collins, even though it should be painfully obvious from various inferences. I will now correct that mistake.

I got the job. XD

I get to play with satellite communications and get paid for it. What could be better?

And I haven't really done all the much except for schoolwork, reading, and playing computer games recently. Which should explain the lack of recent reading material here, but probably doesn't satisfy anyone.

Tough luck. I post when I jolly well feel like it. However, for faithfully checking up on me, I leave you with a completely unsubstantiated quote from one of my alltime favorite Ahh, There's Weird Stuff Happening Over There! books.

The Bermuda Triangle by Charles Berlitz, 1974. Pages 229-230.

In the course of an exploratory digging in Southern Iraq in 1947, layers of culture were successively cored into by what one might call an archaeological mine shaft. Starting from the present ground level, the excavation passed the ancient city culture levels of Babylonia, Chaldea, and Sumeria, with flood levels between different ages of city culture, then the first village levels, then a level corresponding to that of prmitive farmers, at a time era of 6000 to 7000 B.C., and below that, indications of a herdsman culture, and finally a time era was reached corresponding to the Magdalenian or cave culture of about 16,000 years ago. Still farther down, at the botton of all levels, a floor of fused glass was revealed, similar to nothing else except the desert floor in New Mexico after the blasts which inaugurated our present atomic era.

And for your further reading pleasure, a "biblical" look at ancient atomic explosions.

Ancient Atomic Knowledge?

You can't say I never give you anything.

*evil grin*
