New to Me

Maybe you've heard it before, but I hadn't.

Science will fly you to the moon. Religion will fly you into a building.

A Movie I Must See

Deafula? A movie about a deaf vampire, done entirely in sign language. Amazon doesn't have it, I must search.

Spotted over at Agony Booth, which I found thanks to Dustbury. Thanks Chaz.

Words, Level of Wisdom to be Determined

A co-worker had an absolutely horrible day yesterday. As I left for the day I reminded her,

"It's not worth heading to the roof unless you're carrying a sniper scope."

Gamblers Call It A "Tell"

The book I'm reading has a chapter titled, "How to Not Have Your Face Eaten."

It's an excellent book.

Rain, Rain, Stay Awhile

We're 6" below average for the year, so the steady rain we're seeing is very welcomed.

Quote of the Whenever I Feel Like It

I expect powerful writing from this author, but this struck me as unexpectedly beautiful.

Poets are the dreams of Gods.

Quote of the Whenever I Feel Like It

I have given up my democratic prejudices and have willingly set the lower classes free to be completely taken care of by the upper classes. -- Robert Frost

He was only half-kidding, I think.

Frazil Ice

Magnificent Nature.

Thanks to Bayou Renaissance Man for the pointer.

Yeah, it's chopped at the edge. The original is here. Either way, it's worth taking the time to watch.


This week at work:

Boss: Where's Mary?

Me: On the roof.

Boss (laughing as he walks away): I better go and talk her down.

Mary (from her cubicle): What was that about?

Me: I lured him to the roof. Now go do your part.

Stolen from Failbook

Made Me Laugh

Spotted while surfing the net:

If someone hates you for no reason, give the motherfucker a reason.

The Joys of Urban Living

I don't actually *live* in the city, but I work downtown.

This morning after parking my car, as I'm walking to my place of employment I see this guy on the sidewalk. Shirtless, pants half-down his legs, acting like he's freezing to death and desperately trying to open the side door of a van. He knocks, looks around, jiggles the handle, knocks again, does the popsicle dance and then does it all over again.

At first I wondered how this fool managed to lock himself out of his work vehicle (it was a company van), especially since he was barely half dressed. When I looked back, he had moved down the street and was trying to open a car.

I hate the city.

Trying Too Hard

I saw a sign at the local daycare center for CAMP WOW, and underneath the splashy top line it read, "Wonderful wOrld of aWesome."

Someone got paid good money to come up with that.
