Did a fair amount of cooking today, took care of some gift purchases and donations, talked briefly with the folks, watched Pi,"π", a pretty disturbing flick, found out that my computer's DVD player and whatever video card I have are not sufficient to the task of playing the "netflix" DVDs I am once again getting in the mail. So, the big question is: do I need a new computer, do I need an upgrade or do I simply continue to stream netflix and play the DVDs on the player connected to the TV? I don't so much want to be spending any big amounts of currency, but this old pc is getting on in years, my guess is that it's over eight years old now, although I did some minor upgrading about two years ago and I've been dragging my feet about getting a laptop. Hmmm. Things to ponder and the longer I stay in ponder mode the longer I refrain from spending any cash. Or really, the longer before I transfer digital signals that will have a negative impact on my digital balances.

Saturday, yep I've got it off although that wasn't expected. Lots of issues permeated the work week and I certainly put in more overtime than I wanted to, to the point that I didn't have time to pick up my instruments before catching a piece of the Friday night drum gig at the park. I was scrounging for a djembe, but did have a pretty little xylophone to play. I dropped some stress but am still a bit ragged out. Well I hope y'all fared better and are having a lovely weekend.

coffee @ work

If I can locate the Dilbert strip that pertains I will link to it later. So, I get to work today and the usual pressure to get some things done sooner start to make itself felt. I open my e-mail and read one that states that coffee drinking and other things was not permissible where I am located. In all honesty I was wondering how to move on. I have at my desk an old Dilbert cartoon strip that has the evil HR guy stating that coffee could no longer be consumed at work and I had thoughts of blowing it up to poster size, but luckily my boss came back and stated that it was misconstrued.

resurrection day

So, it's Easter, probably one of the biggest days for the Christians. Interesting about the physical level or vibrational amplitude of the reconstructed vehicle. Debate on this from the differing camps of believers has shaped factions for many years now. My own afterlife perceptions or concepts are more of an eternal aspect to the "soul" and myriad expressions in and out of time; extensions or termination points of view out from the unity of the ONE.
The pagan springtime iconography wedded to the holiday amuses me. It seems so many Christian holidays have usurped previous traditions and deny the origins simultaneously. Whatever your personal relation to the paradigms of this theme, may you enjoy and share them with those you love.
