Hello Muddah, Hello Fodder…

Posted by Mick on January 6, 2010 – 6:01 pm

How many of you out there never reboot your computer?

I’m one of those.  I tend to go months without a reboot.  Even on the laptop, I will hibernate rather than shut down.  No big deal, really.  Reboots are rarely necessary.

But there’s something refreshing a reboot.  Even if it didn’t particularly need it, it’s nice to have a fresh start.  It just feels good.  And yes, I am anthropomorphizing my computer.  It is an extension of my very being.  There’s something about my thoughts flowing from my brain to my fingers through my keyboard to the screen to the world.

Can you tell when I’m in a philosophical mood?

This is going to be a short one, as I’m off to my first Horror Movie Night at the home of @BTSJunkie.  I’m expecting an epic evening.

He’s made a trailer for the new season.  Now stop and think about that.  He’s made a trailer.  With a synched theme song.  The man is not fucking around.  This will be epic.

Not much else going on right now.  Work has been work.  Tonight will be my fun, and fodder for another blog.  I like collecting fodder.  I’m not 100% sure what fodder is, but it’s an awesome word.  Actually, it’s not at all awesome.  FAIL!  Fodder has two definitions.

  1. Something fed to domestic animals, coarse food for horses, sheep, cattle.
  2. Inferior or readily available material used to supply a heavy demand.

And either way, that’s a bit insulting to both of us.  I’m sorry.  Bad word.  Bad.

I will not be collecting fodder.  I will be gathering magical experiences and witty bon-mots for your reading enjoyment.  Or something.  I should have abandoned this line of thought about 10 minutes ago.  That’s the joy of first drafts, you can edit it out later.

Damn, it’s almost time to go.  I’m gonna go spend some time with my lovely and brilliant wife before I split (and no, I’m not saying that just because she reads this – she actually is lovely and brilliant – you’re so damn cynical).

Welcome to the first draft.  Tonight, it’s the final draft.
