Garden Walk Day One

The bird and I just took nap. I am tired after a busy day of the garden walk. I didn't actually go to any gardens but people came here because we are on it this year.

We didn't get many visitors because we aren't in a cluster but a lot of my family members stopped by which was great. Surprisingly our street has very few gardens on the walk.

The tortoise was an even bigger hit than the garden. I pretty much spent the whole day feeding him fruits to entertain people. We were like a circus side show.

My mom came by and made fried zucchini flowers that we half picked from the garden and half bought from the farmers market. We paired it with avenue boys sausage from the farmers market and beans from the garden. The whole thing was delicious.

I wish I took more pictures but I was so busy I forgot.

Family trip to Jim's at 2:30am

Considering I ate some egg, a slice of watermelon and a yogurt in the last 24 hours - I think a chicken finger club and fries is in order.

Estrip android app

I was working on an update to the estrip android app which checks for network connectivity first instead and displays a nice little message instead of force quitting. I added this little homage to (e:tinypliny) who is the one that discovered the issue as I had never tried the app on a device with no network connection.

Just to give you an idea how unusual this is on a mobile android device - this is the message for the google marketplace. I think mine looks better.

My new friend birdo

He doesn't have a name yet but he is so cute. He is actually (e:matthew)'s pet but he sat on my shoulder for like an hour and kept giving me kisses. He is so snuggly and cute compared to the rock. I hope the rock doesn't eat him.

Straight Guys?

I decided to check out google circles again today which brought to some random guy in a friends circle which brought me to twitter which brought me to this guy. I am fascinated by the way that gay culture has kind of taken over idolizing masculinity and close male relationships. I wonder what male relationships were like prior to modern gay culture. Its so hard to tell because everything we read now is filtered by the people who documented it and how many people's opinions do you trust. This guy seems to be trying to explore this.

everybody loves cheesy puffs

I wonder how many bugs grow up on junk food nowadays and if they suffer from things like obesity, clogged spiracles because of it.

I mean imagine the difference in nutrients between their traditional diet of fruit, worms, sap, etc and a cheesy puff.

Issue With Fedora 15 Terminal Transparency in Gnome 3

It has been making me absolutely crazy that since I switched to Fedora 15, Gnome 3 I lost my terminal transparency due to a bug in Mutter which caused the drop shadow of windows to be opaque. The bug report was filed with redhat back on March 3rd but the problem was with mutter not Fedora so they had to wait for a fix. On June 29th it was fixed in mutter and we have been waiting since then for the bug fix to make it into fedora.

I understand this kind of thing takes a while, but a status update would be nice. Finally, I decided to try the mutter/clutter version that comes with Fedora 16 (rawhide) and it works. I cannot wait for someone to back port this to Fedora 15.

If you need terminal/windows transparency in the meantime, you can update to the fedora 16 version using fedora 15.

sudo yum install fedora-release-rawhide
sudo yum update clutter mutter --enablerepo=rawhide update

Afterwards, I got perfectly normal transparency on windows with a drop shadow.

Mark Grisanti

I kind of feel bad for him. The anti gays are really hating on him now for representing his district. I find it so ironic that the Christian right winger want to see a referendum on this. This isn't California. How is anyone imposing gay marriage in anyone else?

I still wish they hadn't approved gay marriage but had rather cancelled marriage altogether and left marriage as something non governmental that you can choose to do on your own or with your church.

OMFG

What the hell is this in my arm? Its like I got bit by a mini vampire but it does not itch or hurt. I have never seen such bright red marks with bright white circles around them. If its a tick bite I will just kill myself.
