defaulting to poop

So everytime I think of updating my journal or my facebook status, "poop!" is one of the things that always pops in my mind to post.

Just thought I would share that little tidbit.

flagrant foolish funding

hoodie me
I understand the super bowl ad hype - I get it; we are capitalist and all about materialism and huge spending. I just wish those companies would spend that million dollars per 10-second commercial time on something useful like helping America dig itself out of it's economic hole. Helping assuage world hunger. Something useful to humanity and the planet we live on.

We are so ass backwards. It blows my mind.

But I will answer mine here, and answer questions about "the poster" referencing Amanda, Terry, and Aramis since I stole this from them all :)




01) Are you currently in a serious relationship?
Yes

02) What was your dream growing up?
To be an adventurer or entertainer. I would still rather be either of those than anything else :)

03) What talent do you wish you had?
singing, dancing (like, really good), or playing an instrument very well.

04) If I bought you a drink what would it be?
depends on the occasion. Water, cherry coke zero (fountain is best), white russian, or vodka with diet coke.

05) Favorite vegetable?
hmmm... I will lump this up as "healthy fibrous thing" and go with edamame and sauteed baby bella mushrooms

06) What was the last book you read? a great and terrible beauty

07) What zodiac sign are you? aries

08) Any Tattoos and/or Piercings? 13 or so piercings, 3 small tattoos, a tramp stamp, and the beginning of a backpiece

09) Worst Habit? eating my fingers. hating my appearance. bingeing. two of three being worked on as resolution. Cannibalism will be tackled next year.

10) If you saw me walking down the street would you offer me a ride? I would offer Amanda, Terry, AND Aramis a ride AT THE SAME TIME!!!!! oh yeah baby.

11) What is your favorite sport? i don't like point-system sports. I like biking, hiking, running... being in nature and being active makes me feel holy. I like doing things and getting better at them over time by being more efficient.


12) Do you have a Pessimistic or Optimistic attitude? Realistic.

13) What would you do if you were stuck in an elevator with me?

Amanda - we would try to commune with the Gods and ask their assitance.
Terry - we would try to commune with the dead and ask for their assistance.
Aramis - I would do the jangly dance continually until you got so enraged you kicked the doors down. I am CERTAIN it would work.

15) Tell me one weird fact about you.
I expect nothing. I know that is not really weird.

17) What if I showed up at your house unexpectedly? invite you in - unless you've been kicked out for bad behavior - in which case I would shut the door.

18) What was your first impression of me?
Amanda - i like this chick. she is intelligent.
Terry - i like this guy - he doesn't say much but when he does speak it's either insightful or funny.
Aramis - this guy is adorable. how cute is he?!

19) Do you think clowns are cute or scary? I am indifferent to clowns.

20) If you could change one thing about how you look, what would it be? Have amazing skin. Everything else I want changed is within my capability to change - just not the acne. I tried and failed to fix it over the course of 15 years and millions of failed therapies. Fuck it.

bananas

The inner part of the common yellow banana splits easily lengthwise into three strips.
I like this.
Also, I am fairly certain a gnat just shat in my cup.

new projects

hoodie me
Working on some new things.

Dr. Su liked the proposal I prepared for him regarding a nanotechnology grant from the national science foundation at FAU. He has asked me for continued assistance in publishing work about an invention he is working on and wants my help with. It's pretty revolutionary and I am interested in it. I have to sign a confidentiality agreement to work on it, though, so no more on that here until it is released to the public.

I was toying with the idea of getting my masters in engineering management because FAU offers 13 month weekend programs that would fit my schedule perfectly, but I am going to put that on the back burner because I honestly believe a new research concept I have stumbled into is more important than anything else aside from survival. I am very excited, actually...

I had a revelation during a philosophical conversation several nights ago that has me empassioned enough to do research so I can write a book on the topic. I will likely get into detail here on LJ more as the research progresses and I arrive at roadblocks that LJ user input might be able to overcome.

I came to realize that I was focusing my energies on a subject too outlandish to grasp as a human with the current mental capabilities we as humans possess when I was 16-21 years old. I was essentially attempting to solve a calculus problem without ever having learned addition and subtraction. That's the best parallel I have for it, anyway. I was unaware of a missing step back then, so I put it all behind me because it was literally driving me mad. I shut my philosophical brain off and in so doing also apparantly hurt my memory and ability to retain information. I spent years not thinking on that level at all.

Re-opening my mind to this particular strain of philosophy has taught me a lot about who I am. I thought I had lost that aspect of myself and it deeply hurt me, but now I know I was just taking the break that was necessary in order to come to the realizations I have had over the past few days.

My findings could explain so much. Now if I only had a laptop to adequately record all of my research findings! haha

I am very ecstatic about this. I feel a greater sense of purpose than ever before.

Here's to finding honest answers. The most important thing we as humans can do.
