Life and Me!

Mon Mar 01:

I published Whee yesterday – the poem I found in OneNote from last May. This ergonomic keyboard is going to take some time to get used to. Do you remember where your fingers are supposed to sit on the keyboard before you start typing?

Currently, there is a perpetual calendar on my desk that I built from KiwiCo (right below my Acer monitor). André made this neat lockbox. Next is the printing press (He and Dee are supposed to build that one.)

While building my calendar, I learned what a Geneva drive is – it has two interlocking parts – a drive wheel and a gear wheel which allow you to spin things to specific angles then stop. In old movie cameras and projectors, Geneva drives were used to move the film strip forward, frame by frame. You could also find the drive inside some mechanical watches.

Do you remember the Y2K bug that had everybody freaking out like the world was going to end? Did you know that there’s a World Calendar that nobody uses?

My desk – a lot of that stuff is from work – One day I will wake up, feel crowded, and remove everything – for now I’m happy!

Time for a serious question from someone who also ponders the makings of the universe (me 🙂 ) … If you were a zombie, what kind of zombie would you be?

  1.  A walker – the original Romero-type zombie from Night of the Living Dead, TWD, Planet Terror, Dawn of the Dead (I feel like some of them were able to run, but that’s a Romero flick, so probably not. AND how they turned wasn’t clear to me). I should watch Dawn of the Dead again.
  2. A runner – the upgraded zombie – I don’t know if something that’s reanimated could run so fast, but these zombies are mainly because of an infection. Think Resident Evil, World War Z, 28 Days/Weeks Later

There are lots of other classifications, but those are the main two. I don’t care about crawlers (if half of my body was missing and I had to crawl around for the rest of my undead life, I’d rather be dead-dead!). Crawlers are in TWD. There are also ghouls from nuclear fallout, and I think … forget it. Suddenly, I can’t remember what type of zombies were in Seoul Station/Train to Busan.

I’d prefer to be a walker if I had the chance to choose. Like … why am I in a hurry? I’m dead! You should watch Shaun of the Dead. I think it’s better than Zombieland.

A few years back I bought a book called The Me Journal: A Questionnaire Keepsake by Shane Windham (it’s in the bottom right corner of my desk.) FYI – Sometimes I forget to close brackets. All the pages are still blank – I never filled it out cause my mind changes too often but we can fill it out together. I will pose a question or five and we can answer it and see how our answers change over time. Ready! …

  • Are you good at remembering names? No! But that’s no surprise. Sometimes I don’t remember faces.
  • Your longest friendship has been with: Sharon. We’ve known each other for 30+ years.
  • Are your parents divorced? My parents were never married.
  • What was your first word? Motherfucker! (in response to the slap from the doctor. jk. I don’t know what my first word was.) – Do doctors still slap babies anywhere in the world?

That’s from page two – The pages aren’t numbered so soon I will be lost – Page one is just like where you live, when were you born and stuff.
