Friday Morning Bitchfest

Friday, October 29th, 2004

Cripes, what a way to kick off my birthday/Halloween weekend! Where to begin? Item #1: The election. Oh I just can’t stand it anymore. I am literally losing sleep over this, I am so stressed. I’ve had nightmares where I’ve dreamt that election day came and went but I forgot to vote! All I want […]

I’ve gotta try harder…

Tuesday, October 26th, 2004

I only have 3 out of these Ten Geekiest Hobbies Star Wars, Star Trek, and Role-playing games. I guess I really only have 2.5 because I hardly consider myself that much of a Star Wars fan anymore. But on the other hand, I’d do LARPing if anyone would let me. A sample quote: “Dungeons and […]

You Know Much That is Hidden, O Tim

Monday, October 25th, 2004

Just a quick birthday tribute to my pal, Tim the Enchanter. Tim is one of the smartest, funniest guys I know, and he also has excellent taste in food. He has all the good qualities of being a Geek (see smart, funny above), but none of the bad ones (poor hygeine, inability to converse about […]

May His Name Be Forever Praised!

A Public Service Announcement

Thursday, October 21st, 2004

Employers take note: If you have a vacant position posted upon your web site, and then you fill that position, kindly remove the position from your web site. Don’t leave it sitting there for months on end making people waste time, effort, resume paper, and hopes, you lazy cretins. Damn, but HR people are evil!

Hollywood Birthdays: Bela Lugosi

Wednesday, October 20th, 2004

“The virginal brides file past his tomb Strewn with time’s dead flowers Bereft in deathly bloom Alone in a darkened room The count!” –Bauhaus Bela may be dead, but he is never forgotten. He is one of the true immortal ICONS of the cinema, and although his life was tragic and ended in ignominy, death […]

‘Tis The Season To Spend Money

Tuesday, October 19th, 2004

You guys will probably think I’m crazy, but I like to start my Yuletime shopping in October. I prefer to spread the costs out a little over several months, rather than go completely bankrupt in December. Every year it gets a little harder; our gift budget remains the same, but the pool of people we […]

Hollywood Birthdays: Rita Hayworth

Sunday, October 17th, 2004

When I look at pictures of Rita Hayworth, for some reason I think of that line from Tolkien: “All shall love me, and despair!” Dunno why. All shall love me, well that’s obvious. Just look at that picture. But despair? It just seems right. When I look at her, or watch her movies, I feel […]

Boring, boring, boring

Wednesday, October 13th, 2004

That’s what this week has been. Yet I’ve been oddly busy, just with tedious little things. Like today, I’m going to finally paint the ceiling in our guest room. We’ve been talking about doing it for a year, but we just couldn’t face any more painting. But over the weekend, BW patched all the nasty […]

Your Stupid Minds! Stupid! Stupid!!

Sunday, October 10th, 2004

Today is the birthday of a personal hero of mine: Edward D. Wood, Jr. Heckle if you must, but I love the guy. His movies ARE awful, no doubt. But are they among the worst ever made, as is often claimed? Far from it. Trust me, I watch a lot of movies, and there are […]

Saturday, Bloody Saturday

Saturday, October 9th, 2004

You’re in touch with the world, and you have a verystrong opinion on things like politics and war.Even if you do end up changing your image inthe future, most of us will still like you. What band from the 80s are you? brought to you by Quizilla I’m ok with this result, but damn, I […]

Step Right Up & Place Yer Bets

Wednesday, October 6th, 2004

We have less than two months to go until the Trixie Twins drop and take up residence next door to me. I know it must be getting close because I haven’t seen hide nor hair of Trixie for a long time. I assume she’s in seclusion because her fashionable track pants no longer fit. Anyway, […]

Back to the Blarg

Monday, October 4th, 2004

Back at work today. You know, after a long vacaction, it’s very easy to forget that I even have a job at all. I’m here in the office today because I have to slog through all the paperwork for getting reimbursed for the PHP conference I went to in Toronto. Which was totally lame, by […]

Hangin’ wit da Boyz

Friday, October 1st, 2004

BW is using the last days of his vacation to work on his motorcycle, so he’s away tonight. I’m taking advantage of it and first got to test out one of my new Lush bath bombs (Honey scent! Nice, but not as good as the AvoBath.) Now I’m watching a fairly lame made for BBC […]
