(no subject)

So I may have discovered a hidden downside to the machine. It may foster conditions conducive to giving me pink eye. I have it again. In the littel over a year sisnce I got the machine I have now gotten pink 3 or 4 times. Before getting the machine I think I may have gotten it once. I think it has to do with the mask leaking and blowing air right on my eye. now I am faced with a quandry. I cant put one of my contacts in cause well that would be bad see with the pink eye. And i should stay at home as pink eye is very contagious. But I cant afford to stay home. If I miss another day then I am going to get writen up. Two three day long ilnesses in less than a months time saw to that. I also cant afford it financially. I need to be getting as much time in as possible as is. I m already agreeing to work till midnight tommorrow. hell I doubt I can afford the medicine for it and the visit to the doctor anyway so staying out might be productive but not as productive as it could be. So I go in when I shouldnt. I guess at least I should be glad that my life is consistent. This also means I dont get to hang out with people who have babies for obvious reasons.


suck. G'Kar died

In case anyone like me missed this.

Babylon 5's Katsulas Dies

Andreas Katsulas, the character actor known to SF fans as G'Kar on Babylon 5 and a familiar face from Star Trek and other SF&F TV shows, died Feb. 13 of lung cancer in Los Angeles, his agent, Donna Massetti, confirmed to SCI FI Wire. He was 59.

Katsulas, a longtime resident of Los Angeles, played the Narn ambassador G'Kar for five years in the syndicated cult TV series Babylon 5, starting in 1993. He reprised the role in subsequent Babylon 5 telefilms.

Katsulas was also no stranger to Trek fans, playing Romulan Cmdr. Tomalak in Star Trek: The Next Generation. His last appearance in a Trek series was as a Vissian captain on an episode of Enterprise.

Born in St. Louis, Katsulas held a master's degree in theater from Indiana University, his official Web site said. After performing in plays in St. Louis, New York and Boston, he went on to film roles in such movies as Michael Cimino's The Sicilian, which brought him to Los Angeles, then in Ridley Scott's Someone to Watch Over Me and Blake Edward's Sunset.

Katsulas moved to Los Angeles permanently in 1986 and found scores of television and film parts in everything from TV's Alien Nation and Max Headroom to the big screen's The Fugitive, in which he played the infamous one-armed man, and Executive Decision opposite Kurt Russell and Steven Seagal.

Information on memorial services was pending at press time.
