Maybe this year will be better than the last...

In sci-fi/space adventure films, why do you rarely see black painted ships? At the very least, you'd think that they'd paint their fighters black to give them some sort of advantage. If not the good guys, then at least the enemy. It'd provide the cheapest and most effective defense in open space. It might not be as effective near large objects (stars, planets, asteroids, a field full of battlecruisers or transport craft), but how many average pilots would be able to spot a black ship against the black inkyness of space? Just a pondering.

Last night's snow storm sounded like an airplane trying to land on my house. It provided for some strange dreams.

Yesterday would've been 6 months, give or take some time off, depending on how you like to track such things. I only mention it because it occured to me last night and those sorts of things mean something to me. There's something about setting markers in the past for you to measure yourself by in the future. Where have I come from? Why am I here? How did I end up like this?

Tonight I'm stealing the car. First order of business is to see about a haircut. Leslie is taking care of that for me because she is teh awesome. After that, I don't know what I'm up to. We shall see.
