    I love Scott Pilgrim
    Graphic novels are still better than the movie though

    Why is it, sometimes, you click to go to the "last post in the topic", eg. this one, Non Sequitur, but instead of going to the last page, it goes to the second last page. But you don't know that, so you start reading from where it let you off. And you read. And you read. And you think, gee, this looks familiar. But you keep reading. And then you start to think, no, this is really familiar. I mean, how many times could a picture of a mama and baby giraffe be posted. And then you skip ahead. Ahead some more. And finally you get to the bottom and it says you're on page 32... of 33! So it means the "system" did NOT take you to the last post, and you've just consumed 1.3 minutes of your life re-reading old posts! bwaa-haa-haa! And then you take another 1.3 minutes to write a complaint about it! bwaa-haa-haa...

    I cleaned my kitchen floor today. Can't remember the last time I did it. Maybe last year some time. It was nasty. But I'm having company on Monday, and I didn't want her to be totally grossed out. Trouble was that once I got the top layer of grime off, there were dozens of spots of really tough grime that required a long soak in full-strength Mr. Clean to get to the point where I could get them off.

    I didn't even finish, and my back and knees are killing me. I hope my guest will not be too grossed out.

    I went Mexico, today; had my hair trimed, eyes examined, meds purchased and teeth cleaned. I did not get kidnapped by The Zeta's.

    Did get propositioned several times. People are desparete to come to US and I love Mexico! Go figure.

    Okay, so if you're on Facebook or Myspace and you just got your friend request denied, don't be so pathetic to confront the person about the denial on someone else's wall/comment page. It's embarrassing to them, yourself, and anyone witnessing it.

    School starts tomorrow.

    I am so NOT ready!

    We were going to have sandwiches and chips at the lake tonight, but though the store where we buy them was open, the beach was not, so we headed over to the ocean beach. I took one last, luscious, lingering dip in the sea, which was very calm. It was sunset, and the waves were blue and pink, and I felt so relaxed and loved and wonderful.

    Tomorrow I start waking up in the semi-darkness, which all too soon will be pitch-fucking darkness.
    Tomorrow I start sleep-walking through the morning routine.
    Tomorrow I start getting busier than I like to be.

    Oh well. If it weren't for the 9 months of unpleasantness, I might not appreciate the three months of bliss quite so much.

    Goodbye, Summer! It was lovely! I'll miss you! :cry::cry:

    First day of school was "okay", according to Miss Thing. Second day of school will dismiss early due to Hurricane Earl. Right now we're supposed to get tropical storm force winds (40-50 mph, with higher gusts), and anywhere from 1-4" of rain. I guess we'll see what happens when it gets here. So often, they get us prepared for the worst, and the stupid storm snuffs it or goes out to sea unexpectedly. But I'm battening the hatches nonetheless.

    There's a Hebrew word for getting a camel to kneel down.

    I'm trying to wrap my head around the fact that someone believed that camel jockeys are so short on time, they need one word instead of saying "Yeah, I'm getting this camel to kneel down".

    Also, five words for 'pan'.

    My back yard is full of grackles! There must be 200 of them, and more coming every second! I wish you could see and hear it--they have a raspy call like a rusty hinge, so it's quite impressive--and deafening!

    They're not holding anything in their hands. They're just doing funny voices into their hands. Maybe they mean to sound like muted trumpets or other instruments used in that style of music. I think part of the time they're miming having canes, but I'm not sure.

    "Thank you for sending us your resume. However, we have no need for it and are therefore returning it to you."

    From a classic, actual returned job enquiry letter I sent, from around 1981. Problem was, the resume came back all fingerprinted and coffee cup stained, so I couldn't use the darned thing again!

    Time to make the cookies.

    I was so sorry it was so damned hot the day before Possum visited. I'd wanted to send her back to NYC with some chocolate chip cookies, but it was 90 degrees in my kitchen, and impossible to make cookies when it's that hot. The butter just melts, and they come out all sticky and thin.

    Next visit, for sure!

    Looks like our new neighbors are Muslim. I met them in the street today as they were driving. The wife wears a head scarf. After exchanging pleasantries, the husband said, "If you need anything, consider me your good friend." I returned the sentiment. I like them already.

    Lookie what I found!

    NVM - can't get the link to post - it was a cute cameo of John on Entourage with his 23 year old girlfriend. He looks great! On HBO in the Entourage clips if you can get there!

    Any of you computer literates want to try to dig a video link out of this mess? OK, it's a secret mess because most of it does not show up when I post this...

    His new girlfriend claims to be 39. Camilla is 26; she was with him during rehearsals. Or do you mean the infamous 27/40+ Barbie?

    What dif does 27/40 make. There are other considerations. where is one's ego? I hope to at least make 80 (well preserved of course). Finally going to Fla. Prayers appreciated. Have to stir up stew. EEK EEK!
