So this image in my head of the Friar on a stool under a single spotlight, tuxedo tie undone, double shot in one hand and the mic in the other crooning "set 'em up Joe" pleases me probably more than it should.
Today I'm taking a bus ride with a reporter who's living in and writing about East Oakland for the Tribune. He's not from here & wants to learn about Oakland as it was, how it's changed. I'm excited to be part of his project but I hope he doesn't want to take pictures of me :-)
Given the vast distances in space, I think real space battles will actually be more boring than Star Trek space battles. Real lasers lose a lot of power the farther they go, so missiles will probably still be the way to go, but watching missiles lazily chase their targets in space will be hella boring.
The best part of this past weekend...aside from finally getting to meet Eivind IRL...was seeing my best friend truly, genuinely, beautifully happy. I am so thankful that her and Eivind found each other. They're two souls that were meant to be together, and it shows in every little way.
