Give me a penny, you must. Grant your wishes I can.



Well? It's the bloody Yoda fountain at work. Duh.

From my notebook:

The testers I get along with tend to be the drinkers. Partly because we have alcohol in common, yes. But also partly because, very often, these are the people who have managed to carve out a niche in this eccentric techie world, yet also insist on having social lives, and have a need to wind down in company... these are the people with the most interesting stories. Actors, martial artists, punk rockers, burners, beatniks, writers, lovers; some of the best people in the industry are the ones who aren't entirely sure how they got there. They are intensely interesting and interested people from my experience, and are often dangerously brilliant fools who can wander into various strata of society undetected, and will do so simply for the sake of it until they find a focus.


Coyote
Indeed, you are 83% erudite, 66% sensual, 58% martial, and 87% saturnine.
Coyote was an important being to several Native American
tribes. He was one of those tricksters that are found in several world
mythologies, in fact very close in temperament and deed to Loki of the Norse pantheon.


Eternally scavenging for food, he represents the most basic instincts,
but in other narratives, he is also the father of the Indian people and
a potent conductor of spiritual forces in the form of sacred dreams. In
the “Myth of the Stars and the Moon” he is shown as a wise counsellor
even.

There are more stories about him than stars in the sky. For
example, did you hear the one about the “Spying Moon”? It seems that
someone had pinched the moon, and Coyote offered to stand in as
replacement. Everyone agreed that he made a fine moon, but from his
elevated position Coyote could see everything that was going on. Being
of an irritating disposition, he couldn't resist blowing the whistle on
friends and enemies alike. "Hey, look what Badger is doing behind his
tepee!"


Pretty soon everyone was sick of his snooping and voted him out of the
sky. But nothing can keep Coyote down for long. Being an old show-off,
he loves to impress the girls by juggling his eyeballs. One day he
threw one so high it got stuck in the sky and became the star Arcturus.
So even now he's keeping an eye on us all.

Overstretched my oblique muscles a bit while working out, which leaves a sensation nearly identical to having been punched in the side and back of the ribs, every time you twist at the waist. So I've been marching in straight lines today. How about you?

Beat on Kicking bags without my hands wrapped. Tore a hole in my last right hand knuckle. Shotokan on Monday. Greeeeeaaaat.

Re: Right back atcha.

Good luck with training, wrap that sucker up and be careful. You can't take people to the Gun Show without a ticket to punch. ^_^

yoda fountain, eh? i don't remember THAT @ skywalker. must be for the V.I.P.s =P

Actually, this is at the new Presidio campus. There IS an Ewok lake at the ranch, but I don't think I every actually got to see it. Just as well; I would totally get bitten by a rabid Ewok with my luck.

So that's why Coyotes howl at the moon, crazy cyclopses.
