Month: October 2006 Page 2 of 4


Taking a Borders survey in exchange for a $10 gift card. How much do you spend on new books yearly? How am I supposed to figure that out?!? I ask Lee.

He says, “Just pick the highest amount.”





Cold Medicine

Check your cabinets. The request to remove Phenylpropanolamine (PPA) went out in 2000, and I still found the stuff in my medicine cabinet. Kids cold medicine. Yeesh.

Think of the Day.

Why write? To entertain, to educate…vague things. For me, writing is about answering “The Love Song of J. Alfred Prufrock.” Why not just wit yourself to death?

Politically Correct

I liked it better when being politically correct meant you were polite to people you used to get to be rude to, rather than refraining from despising people who support torture.

Van Von Hunter

Sad to say, this is right on my level…

“You and your accomplice have been found guilty of the murder of the Evil Count Disdain.”

“Murder? But he was already dead!”

“Technically, he was undead.”

“Well, I just made him ‘re-dead.'”

Remember, remember…

The first of November.

NaNoWriMo is on the way!


Why do people have theme rooms? What do they mean?

Someone at work rose the idea that women have a favorite animal that is used for decor. For example, this guy’s wife collects chickens. (Couldn’t help giggling.) I don’t have such an animal, but I’m usually off the norm on girly things, so I asked around. The people I talked to didn’t have animals, either, but they brightened when the idea was broadened to “theme rooms.” Lots of women decorate with foreign locations–either places they’d been, would like to go, or had some kind of genetic significance. I, myself, want to do the kitchen with a cross between Hispanic and Greek influences (pine and teal, pine and teal). I’m not sure whether it’s a good idea yet…

Quick Updates

Friday: See below.
Saturday: Lee had to work OT. Ray’s new bunkbed-futon-couch thingy arrived. The workmen set it all up in under an hour–definitely the way to go.
Sunday: Went to the Denver Museum of Nature and Science with Randy and Ray for a Ray birthdayish outing. Ray grinned from ear to ear practically the whole time. Checked out the new Tattered Cover nearby; ate good gyros.
Monday: ACK! People out at work, ended up getting home at 8 p.m. MUST BAKE CAKE to take to day care tomorrow…
Tuesday: Ray’s 5th BIRTHDAY!

An Abbatoir

Randy was telling me about Dr. Henry Holmes (Herman Webster Mudgett) today, and I had to look him up. Reminds me of that Monty Python sketch…Masons!

Ponder Me THIS!

The Japanese have a festival just to watch cherry blossoms. So tell me…where the hell are the Japanese recipes for cherries?
