Spaceman


I am sitting here surrounded by my computing power than put a man on the moon in '69.
Three monitor screens, one for rig information, one for well log formatting, and one for well log information gathering. then my TV, which has a an Xbox hooked up running the sonic the hedge hog demo, while my DVD surround system cranks out Pink Floyds The Wall, sans vidio (ever listen to The Wall while watching sonic?)
I am alone right now the unit manager is on his way home his replacement wont be here till tomorrow.
(Comfortably numb playing in the background)
It's like doing time, but with a little purpose and a little paycheck.
And in the end its O.K.
just a little pin prick
See, Im working mom.....
See Im working in the field getting pollution out of the ground so all the people can get around.
I would have like to seen my children grow up, I think I missed that part.
I would have liked to have known love. Maybe there is still time, I wonder.
With all this shit around me what am I really watching? A book. Trainspotting by Irvine Welsh.
Doing time.
making money.
doing my job.
not too bad though.

I dont think that red spot in the sky ascending about 40 minutes before orion is mars after all. planets dont remain so fixed in the sky.

Did anybody else notice? no moon for halloween.

I'll see you all under that moon in this life or the next, when we are cats.

hoping you are, if nothing else, not losing ground to the machine.
ground control to major Tom, time to work....
aloha for now

"All the world's a stage..."

Nice post sharks. BTW, I saw Pink Floyd when they did the Dark Side of the Moon tour, back in the early seventies. In a small venue too. Awesome...
