Outta Here

About to get on a plane to go to where I will get on a boat to be with a couple thousand other nerds. Not planning to be on the Internet whilst at sea. Definitely not reading the news. Please don’t blow up the planet while I’m away. Most times I’ve said that before it was a joke. Less of a joke this year, alas.

There’s a Big Idea piece scheduled for next week, but otherwise it’ll be pretty sparse here; at most I’ll post taunting pictures of gorgeous Pacific sunsets or such. Fortunately there’s the whole rest of the Internet for you to see! Go see it! Otherwise, be back in the real world in about a week.

  1. Hope Griffin Diaz – North Carolina – So, to borrow from a popular shirt, I love Jesus but I cuss a little. Well, a lot. In fact, I just don't believe Jesus really gives a shit about the word fuck. He does care if you say f you or go f yourself. But a general adjective? Nah. I am married to the love of my life, Louie (aka Luis) and have an adult child, Christy. My mum, Nancy, is still with us and active in our lives. I love to read, I fancy myself an amateur gardener, I am owned by a large black purr machine maine coon cat named Samwise aka #SamSam and a Border Collie/Australian Cattle dog mix named Daisy. I knit. I craft. I sew. These are at my leisure and are hobbies. I don't take commissions nor do I do alterations. I'm an aspiring human being. I battle several mental illnesses including depression, major panic disorder, agoraphobia, germaphobia, claustrophobia, and some other assorted illnesses. I also have fibromyalgia and have had numerous traumatic brain injuries (into the double digits now). I am not able to drive at night. I don't know where this blog is going ... if anywhere.

    OMG, a ship with nerds? I’m deathly afraid of cruise ships as it is. Add nerds and it gets even weirder. Like some B-rated Horror Flick. *shudders*

  2. Ack… so now I’m down to just one news filter until you get back. I hope wandsci is enough to keep me from idly checking CNN. Maybe I should start checking out Wil Wheaton’s twitter feed…

  3. What!?!?!?! I demand more regular content to entertain me! Dance, monkey, dance!

    By which I mean, have a great time, see you when you get back.

  4. We’ll miss you, John. But have fun while you’re gone while we breathlessly await your return. A whole week without the news. WOW! Sounds like heaven to me right now.

  5. I don’t get how you can have a couple of thousand nerds at sea on a big ol’, well stocked cruise ship and none of them hack together some kine of free internet access. You’d think no few of them would get violent being offline for so long. I mean, it’s like I don’t even know my own people any more.

  6. He’s gone to have fun without us. (whimper whimper)
    I suppose we could gang up and riot and take over the whole place or something, but I’m just too sad.
