JAPH. (That's right -- I'm not Really Inexperienced any more.)

I'm not just here, I'm here [perlmonks.org], and here [javajunkies.org] too, I ramble randomly in my philosophical blog [blogspot.com] and my other blog [blogspot.com]. Soon I'll come in a convenient six-pack.

Things are sweet. I'm settling into my new home.

Since I essentially don't play PC games any more, I have no real need to boot into WinME. It's pretty nice.

I've finally gotten around to configuring my desktop the way I like and slapping a coat of wallpaper on that drab gray backdrop. Per my new interest in Samurai Champloo, I have Jin as my WinME wallpaper and Mugen as my Slackware. (Of course, once I install Debian on here as well, I'll need to find a wallpaper of Fuu.)

In biologically oriented news, R's knee was been checked out by an orthopedic surgeon yesterday. His detailed analysis consisted of a "sunset" x-ray of the knee, examination of the charts, a determination that everything's basically okay and that R can begin to bear weight on the knee, and...and inappropriate comment about her weight. Well, scratch that -- it was appropriate. It was a little more glib than he might have intended, however.

It wasn't so offensive as to cause crying so much as anger, which was fine. R doesn't get much flak about this from people that I see or hear, but I know she thinks it.

Other good news -- saw her regular doc this morning, and she's apparently lost 20 pounds since the last visit, which was about two months ago. This is amazingly good news; more downward traffic will help her knee recover and hopefully turn her back from the brink of diabetes.

Speaking of which, I am currently about twenty glucose points higher than my doc wants, so I'm cutting out the bulk of starch in my diet. (Most of the sugar was already gone.) I am still losing weight, which is great and wonderful, etc., but no longer significant to me, because I have zero hunger awareness now. I have to make sure I eat protein, and there's still food I like to eat, but I don't consciously get hungry. And, if I distract myself with something, I can usually forget about food for at least a whole day.

My burn is healing up well. Almost all the blisters are gone, and now it's just a matter of time while the last open spots scab/crust and then the skin tries to knit itself back together properly.

And now, a haiku of frustration:

Google Summer Of Code
I wish I could do it, but
My ideas just suck
