Out of the Blue

Tomorrow is the one-year anniversary of the attacks on the Pentagon and the World Trade Center. So much has changed in the ensuing time it is quite staggering to consider... I'm not really sure how this would apply to those living outside the U.S., but it's really hard to imagine any amount of time doing anything to diminish the impact of 9/11 here. Anyway, nothing I'm going to say here can do the gravity of all this justice or put it into any sort of perspective, so having said this now, I'm pretty sure I'll just forego an Out of the Blue ramble for tomorrow. Here's to the sincere hope that the ever-rising global tensions that have surrounded this event start to ease soon so we can avoid further tragedies.

Story of the Day: Hawk gets stuck on Wing. Thanks TigeRyan, first of about a hundred to mail this one in, hence the posting of something already labeled "offbeat news."

Own Kurt Cobain's House, His Childhood Home! Thanks offset.
DUAL XEON 2.4GHz, Board. Thanks Rob. Sent in several times previously, but this is the first time the images (which are the whole point) worked for me.

30. What I'm doing on September 11th Sep 10, 2002, 16:08 LSD
September 11th is my Birthday. It has been for many years before this incident, if you'll believe that. It's always been a day for celebrating my life and the good things in it.
I never watch T.V. (though I did catch the footage of plane #2 last year, when I arrived at work) so I shall avoid the schmalz tommorrow just like I always do when I don't turn on the TV.
In fact I shall do the same thing tommorrow that I did last year: Celebrate my birthday, give thanks for everything I have, and say a prayer for the souls of the departed. I might add some for our 'Fearless Leader' who seems to be preparing to plunge us into even more bloodshed.
