Jayne! Dude!

This is what happens when I wander around the internet with nothing better to do… (However, the best part of this test? Just like the show Firefly, the questions are surprisingly straight-forward. “Are you a cannibal?” “Have you ever had government tests done on your brain?” and “Do you like big guns? A lot?”):

Your results:
You are: Jayne Cobb (Mercenary)

Although you can be a good fighter
and good at protecting others
you are not very bright sometimes.

Happy New Year

Have you made a New Year's resolution this year? I usually don't, but this year one just popped into my head. Yesterday, while doing the dishes (we always have a lot -- we don't do a traditional party, but my mother's birthday is New Year's Eve, so we always celebrate that with her... and Mason gets his Christmas presents from the grandfolks then) I put on an ALBUM (yes, that old) that I used to love and found myself really enjoying singing along. So, I resolved this year to sing more. I think that's an easy one to keep, since singing is painless (at least for me -- I won't claim it doesn't injure the eardrums of anyone unfortunate enough to overhear) and it makes me happy.

So, how about it? Have you resolved to be a better person? A more diligent writer?

Astro Alert: Pluto Conjunct Galactic Center

Okay, here's a weird one from Apparently pluto and the galatic center are conjunct. How one calcuates that I'll never know, but here's what it all apparently means:

"Could there be a better time to access universal wisdom than when we end one year and begin the next? Recently reclassified Pluto has lost none of its power as it conjuncts the Galactic Center at 26 degrees of Sagittarius on December 29. At this time, you will have the opportunity to tap into the energy of the center of our universe."

"Pluto transits are often intense, and with this important conjunction you'll be ready to empower yourself and think more seriously about your destiny. On December 20, the new Moon in Sagittarius prompted you to put extra energy and intention into whatever you want to become stronger in your life. Moving beyond the familiar now will help you cultivate success."

"The Sun, Pluto and the Galactic Center are all occupying the same area of your astrological chart. That’s a lot of energy, wisdom and power in one place!"
