Zen Tracks [4] UnderOath: A Message for Adrienne

Zen Vision MA Message for Adrienne – UnderOath: The Changing of The Times
[4:41] *

From Jenny’s collection. Not exactly my kind of music, but it does grow on my enough to warrant coming back around to it now and then. And since I’ve still got over 11 meg left open on the Zen, it keeps its place for now.

Cush ≠ Sex

leave a comment »

Actuaries were not recognized among the top 10 sexiest jobs, according to what must have been a rather unscientific survey recently conducted by

We did get the third spot on the list of “cushy” jobs. Although that study was even less scientific – there’s not a single solitary real actuary who works as little as 38.9 hours per week (unless he or she is on vacation at the beach that particular week), much less have an average for the profession so extremely out of touch with reality!

Maybe the real number of hours worked per week for the typical actuary has something to do with us not making it to the top spot on that first list?

alligators in th street

leave a comment »

you & i were bicycling up greenwood avenue heading home. an aggressive driver also pedaling passed us, but then paused just up ahead beside another bicyclist whom he knew. both seemed wary of snakes that were in th street. we pedaled past them, staying near th center of th street, as more and more snakes appeared in th street near th gutters. as we started up th hill, th snakes grew larger, then became alligators, increasingly larger and aggressive, some in th center of th street. we pushed on past th last of them and pulled up to park on th right side of th street across from our house, just behind a family returning from vacation. i spoke with the man some about a problem i’d been having hooking up a game system screen to my computer; i was getting a video signal, so i knew it was connecting ok, but couldn’t get th system itself to work. you had gone in our house and came back out with something from th kitchen that th woman had wanted to know if we had any to spare, since they hadn’t yet shopped for groceries after their trip. while they were exchanging neighbors’ chat, i went into our house. we ourselves had not been there for months, and the cats had left messes all over the front rooms. i leaned down to pet our newest one, an orange tabby who liked biting playfully
