  • Broke a tooth yesterday. Dentist appointment at 7 a.m. I have no idea what they'll decide to do with it - it's a tooth that was already filled, and was cracked as a legacy of grad school. Exacerbated by the ups and downs of my work life; felled by trail mix.

  • Kennewick Man was a little raw, but fairly even-handed. Very interesting to see an erstwhile colleague (heh, he'd have a fit if he knew I so labeled myself) under fire. Speaking of grad school, I must write an email to the archeologists in my cohort - we prophesied that arrogance was likely to come back and bite the principal long before these particular bones were ever pulled out of the mud.

It was only after the radiocarbon date indicated their great age that the notion of the remains being Native American was even raised.

  • Can't sleep. If I could guarantee that I would, in fact, be eaten by clowns upon slumber, I'd go for it. As it were, I'll just sit here and stew in my own personal re-creation of Poe.

Time to lie down until the twitching starts again...

  • December will be magic again

    Time to check in again. Some major depressive episodes last month, but I am coping and I think I am improving. Medication twiddling is underway. Some…

  • because it's there

    To borrow a phrase from BBC Sherlock: Not Dead. And yeah, still dreaming, if you want to go down that path. Still figuring out how to get from Point…
