Hottie Birthday to Two

Friday, March 31st, 2006

March 31 Rules!! Yes, my Boy Wonder shares a birthdate with fellow cute Scottish old-British-cycle-enthusiast Aries Star-Wars-fan Ewan McGregor!! Isn’t that just precious? It’s like they were separated at birth! Astrologically speaking, me and Ewan’s wife could swap husbands, and we probably wouldn’t even notice a difference! Anyway, happy birthday to both of you wunnerful […]

One Week to Go!

Thursday, March 30th, 2006

I am the LORD thy God, which have brought thee out of the land of Egypt, out of the house of bondage. Thou shalt have no other gods before me.

Regularly Scheduled Maintenance

Wednesday, March 29th, 2006

A quick meta-post to let you all know that I am in the process of upgrading my pictures gallery (the one which contains all the Hotties, etc.) to a new image-content-management-thingiemajig. This will cause all of the old links to hottie images in all of my previous blog posts to not work. I’m very sorry […]

Stop! Flapper Time!

No Exit

Monday, March 27th, 2006

Still not one single nibble as far as anyone wanting to buy our house goes. Two sets of people came to our open house yesterday, but they all had chilllldrunnnnnnn and didn’t like the schooollllll disssstriiiiict. Uh…hey loser, why don’t you find out what district a house is in BEFORE you go look at it? […]

Two Weeks To Go

Thursday, March 23rd, 2006

The Lord is my shepherd; I shall not want. He maketh me to lie down in green pastures: he leadeth me beside the still waters. He restoreth my soul: he leadeth me in the paths of righteousness for his name’s sake. Yea, though I walk through the valley of the shadow of death, I will […]

Notes from the Reichstadt

Wednesday, March 22nd, 2006

Well here I am, still in D.C. Can’t say I’ve been having the best time. Seems like I’m never going to be able to come to D.C. and do any good tourist stuff…like go to the Zoo or the Smithsonian. Conference is stupid, no suprise there. Today I attended a good lecture on Wikis, though. […]

M for Movies

Monday, March 20th, 2006

Seems to me that I’ve been slacking on movie reviews. Here’s two for you to chew over while I’m away.

Annnd…I’m Off

Sunday, March 19th, 2006

Well all, tomorrow I have to leave at 0-dark-30 am to catch a train to Washington D.C., where I’ll spend 4 days at the annual “Computers in Libraries” conference. *eye roll* Whatever. The only reason I’m doing this at all is so that I can finally get some reimbursement from work towards the money I […]

Good Enough

Friday, March 17th, 2006

Erm…I’ll settle for Ken Branagh, I guess, but the other two are Right Out. Wouldn’t Jeremy Irons fall into this category? I think he would. The thinking woman’s crumpet You’ve invested time and energy into accumulating knowledge and satisfying your curiosity about the outside world. You know exactly what’s going on in the world of […]

Three Weeks To Go

Thursday, March 16th, 2006

I am the Way, the Truth, and the Life… I haven’t said much about this before now, but I guess I just haven’t had time. But now I can say: 3 weeks from today, BW and I set out to meet Loup and LinuxKidd at GRACELAND! We’ve been planning this and talking about it for […]

All’s Well That Ends

Wednesday, March 15th, 2006

Thanks to everyone for the well-wishes. Happy to say that the surgery went very smoothly, and the ovarian ‘mass’ the doctor was concerned about proved to be just a benign cyst. Mom also got a hysterecotmy so hopefully she won’t have to put up with this again. By Tuesday morning, she was up and around, […]

Talk Amongst Yourselves

Sunday, March 12th, 2006

I probably won’t be around for the next few days. My mother is having surgery on Monday, so Monday and Tuesday will be all consumed with that, Wednesday I have to be at work for a meetings with our English-as-a-third-language “web developers” (and I use that term loosely). Maybe by Thursday I’ll have some semblance […]

The Truth is Out

Friday, March 10th, 2006

A while ago over at Kirk’s page, I learned about the “Implicit Association Tests” available on Harvard’s website, here: These tests are supposed to measure if you have any deep-seated, subconscious preference/predjudice/predispositions for or against certain things. They give you a number of tests you can take, and since I love this sort of […]

Humpday Heist

Wednesday, March 8th, 2006

I’m stealing (or rather, borrowing) Humpday Hottie from Loupy today because it just so happens that this hottie’s birthday falls on a Wednesday this year. Give it up for Aidan Quinn! Aidan is one of the great “that guy” actors of our day. In SO many movies, always good in anything, always looking cute (usually […]

Backlash Mountain

Tuesday, March 7th, 2006

Or: “This is a goddamn bitch of a unsatisfactory situation” Yesterday morning, Whistler asked me to be on his radio show to talk about the Oscars. I was worried about doing it, but in retrospect, I wish I could have talked longer. It was a two-minute segment, and they talked for 1 minute and I […]

James Joyce at the Oscars

Monday, March 6th, 2006

The following is a stream-of-conciousness transcript of my thoughts as typed live during the Oscar broadcast. Joan Rivers wearing a dress made out of….Fraggle pelts? Set looks like an expensive New jersey wedding. All that’s missing are the ice sculptures. Amy Adams dress…pockets? and a BUSTLE? how’d she sit? Paul Giamatti looks like crap. HAS […]

Back in the Day

Friday, March 3rd, 2006

Not much content this week, so let’s steal other people’s! Over at Gutterboy’s site, I heard about this meme. Go to the TV Guide Cover Archive, select your birth year, find a cover that most appeals to you from the year, and stick it on your blog. I decided to start looking on my birthday […]

It Pays to be a Pimp

Thursday, March 2nd, 2006

Whoo-yah! Back in December or Jan., I got an email out of the blue from someone at Anchor Bay Entertainment (the DVD company.) Seems that they were handling the DVD release of Grounded for Life season 1, and had found my Donal fansite. They told me that if I put up a banner advertising the […]

I never drink…….wine.

Wednesday, March 1st, 2006

You are Dracula. Originally the younger son of the Order of Dracul, you watched your family viciously murdered by the Turks, and held a grudge that turned you into one of the most fearsome leaders of all time. You stop at nothing to avenge your family, your country, and your past. This dark shadow has […]
