I'm too tickled with myself right now to blog well. (What's different?) At least I'm blogging, so shut up. Ahem. As you might notice, I've changed the quote at the top of the site from a "misqoute" to a direct one. This means that I finally have a copy of The Hitchhikers Guide to the Galaxy once again. My last "copy" included the first four books of the Trilogy (if you're not a fan of these books, just rest assured that I wrote that last correctly) and I loaned out my copies to a freind of mine. A few years ago. I'm not sure when I ran across the first book, but it is copyrighted 1979. The next one is in 1980, then 1982, then 1985, and a short story in 1986. The last one was (I believe) compiled from the author's notes, and (certainly) was copyrighted in 1992. I started reading them when I was in my early high-school years, and began amassing my tomes at that time. I think it's been more than 7 years since I loaned those books out, but I can't be sure. For some reason, I'm having difficulty remembering who I loaned them to, else I'd be crawling all over them to get 'em back. Now I have an "Ultimate Hitchhikers Guide" which provides all of the works in one hardbound form.

I'm really enjoying it. (*#1)

Last Saturday, my roommate decided that he was going to buy a BB gun for the Eight year old daughter of his (live-in) girlfriend, in order to teach her how to shoot. He is a gun afficianado, as I am, as found that she was interested in it due to a weekend gathering with his family. He asked me to join him when he purchased the rifle (he primarily shoots them), and I came away from the incident with one of these. DAMN, I'd forgotten how much fun it is to "plink" with a small-bore pistol. For the last few evenings, I've been destroying a bunch of beer cans and paper targets, in my own back yard! Yoou see, I live in a fairly good sized city, so they frown upon shooting actual firearms within the community. Air Guns are okay, so off we go. I'm not certain that my roommate has "bad eyes", but I can attest to you that I can hit my target more accurately than he can, when he's using a rifle with a scope, and I'm using a pistol with open sights.

He'll knock a can over after a few shots, and I'll take my pistol and put a hole in the long end of it. we've had many-many hours of fun doing this, and I'm a little dissappointed tht I don't have any night vision capabilities, or I'd still be out there.

I'm really enjoying it. (*#2)

I've been building an elevator, and taking my time with it, approximately a mile and a half from my house, and the install has gone extremely well. Sure we've had a few issues, but the majority of the time has been spent "going easy" and quite well. Sure there's been a few moments, but they've passed easily enough, and we have been making progress without even trying. Work has been extremely good lately.

I'm really enjoying it. (*#3)

*#1 Things are going good, so I've not been blogging.

*#2 Things are going good, so I've not been blogging.

*#3 Things are going good, so I've not been blogging.

In all seriousness, I'm certain that things will not be this way for much longer, but I intend to enjoy them while they're happenning. Trying not to dwell on what might be bad about things has done no end of good for me.

I hope it does the same for you.

Yeah! Stupid Happy People anyway! If it makes you feel any better, I ain't actually "Happy" happy, I'm merely content for the moment. I'll get over it. :^(
