2014-07-29 13.15.51

Oy. Tonight was a long one. Deadlines aren’t always as flexible as one might hope, and science sometimes does not play by human clocks. But it’s all worth it for a chance to piss off the anti-science, pro-God set. One of my secret atheist coworker friends (we have a secret handshake okay no we do …

Celebrating Our Dead

Today I had a strong urge to visit someone’s grave. She was a coworker who I worked with for about five years. She retired a year or two ago, and passed away in 2013. We shared an enjoyment of photography, and because we knew each other’s politics, we avoided discussions of that sort. She was …

Saturday Escorting Stories

Note: I’ve tucked one weird image from the abortion protesters below the fold. It’s morbid, but in a fantasy violence kind of way. I was the only escort this morning!

Godless and grieving about Boston

Hi! My name is Brianne, and I’m godless! I have something that I want you to know, and then to deeply and fully understand and accept: “godless” doesn’t mean “evil”. The idea is that to know God means to know love. And that must mean that if you don’t know God then you don’t know …

Breakout2600

The first game system I played was the Atari 2600. I have memories of playing E.T., Berzerk, Pitfall, Asteroid, Space-Invaders, Frogger and DigDug.  I still remember the pain of Atari Thumb. Breakout was my favorite game for a long time. Remember this bad boy? And unlike some of the other games, this one used the …
