Anomalism 02-15.8Deviant Art additions.    2008-02-15 08:05:43 ET
I just posted two new works to my as yet very limited Deviant Art page. After a couple of decades of doing nothing with my abilities I have started the long process of rebuilding my skills. I have always known that I someday would, and now is the time.

 Anomalism 01-10.8 Birhtday for me.    2008-01-10 07:22:09 ET
It is now 17166.28 revolutions of this planet and counting. It will be another 1095.72 revolutions before I can assign a favored ballistic caliber to my age. My plans for today include some reading, some drawing, atrip to hte bank and the library. But before that I think I will wander into the back yard with an axe.

 Anomalousim 01-01.8 So why was?    2008-01-01 13:41:14 ET
And this is one for the true geeks of scifi. So why was Serenity landing in Caprica City on Caprica just ahead of the Cylon invasion, the day president what's her name was being told she has terminal breast cancer? I don't get it. Were they filming on a nearby computer/set? were they not realy Cylons but Reavers that attacked and it was all a big mistake blaming the poor oppressed robots?

On a somewhat more rational note, Happy New Year everyone.

 Anomalism 12-16.7 Happy Birthday a couple days ago.    2007-12-16 04:49:03 ET
While my lady Anomalous was at work on the 14th, I went out and got a small ice cream cake from DQ (6") and 45 birthday candles. It was frozen so hard that I had to put the little candles through a pencil sharpener so I could stick em in it. So I got that done and hid it in the freeze in garage. Later she comes home and Severity and I wish her happy birthday. She goes upstairs to get out of her work clothes and into her house clothes and I sneak it into the kitchen. My delema at this point is how to light 45 candles on an ice cream cake. So I went back out in the garage and got a suitable device and was walking through the door with when she walks down the steps and sees me with a propane torch and a lighter and gives me a suspicious look and asks, "what are you doing?". "Lighting candles, wanna watch?". I had wanted to have it lit when she came down but then the process is half the fun right? I did get them all lit without melting the cake or setting the house on fire. And as I expected the tiny cake with 45 candles gave the appearence of being all a blaze (gave off a lot of light too). She did get all the candles out with one breath and then wanted me to sing happy birthday the auditory damage potential I thought was greater than the threat of setting the house on fire. It was a good time.
