Need a Muse

If this second cup of coffee doesn't get the words flowing, I am going to resort to eating instant coffee crystals. I thought I should leave this note in case it goes awry to help the toxicologist doing my autopsy.

Quotable (on Vices)

One of my friends/coworkers claimed Friday to not have any vices. I pointed out that he drinks (A LOT) and he still insisted that it wasn't a vice. Another coworker piped in that "drinking is not a vice, but a must and if I could drink at work, I would!"

Who needs to drink on the job when you have awesome entertainment like that ;)?!

I Love To Write

... except when I have to.

1 cup of coffee
1 cup of Lady Grey
almost caffeinated.

Path to Rep Party: Getting Punched in the Face

Truth is stranger than fiction... Mike Tyson has joined the republican party and is even trying to help someone get elected. Deadspin via KC:

As for the t-shirt Tyson was wearing, its for Maryland Republican Senatorial candidate Michael Steele (Karl Rove's head hits desk with audible thud).

Flavor of the Town Just Not the Same

... since Dingle changed their name (via BBC):

In a well-known town by the sea in a remote and beautiful part of south-western Ireland, there's history, politics, and commerce for starters. Dingle, or, to give it its proper, official name these days, An Daingean, is in County Kerry... Last year, a new law meant Dingle's official name was changed to An Daingean... They argue that the internationally-known "Dingle brand", familiar to people in the US, the UK and beyond, is in danger of being lost.

Too Precious to Miss

Something I bet is missing from the Precious Moments church/museum:

I like how the caption on the church reads "Another dumbstruck busload tours the chapel".

A Month Without an Esthetician

I was a few weeks overdue when I finally made it into the beauty shop on the first of this month. I thought they were joking or that something was lost in translation when I was told that Rosie wouldn't be back until after Halloween. It has been eighteen full days and the growth is even worse than what originally drove me there. I have hair in pores I didn't even know grew hair. The thought of trying to erradicate it myself isn't even a real option as she's the only one who's made sense of my eyebrows and upper lip in this millenia. I miss my arches!

Getting Ready for Friday Night

I'm trying to think on the bright side.

"Halloween is a good time of the year to have extra facial hair!"

Who Are These People?

"Who needs the Groucho Marx glasses?" My green frames are pretty thick and with a cigar, I could probably be admitted to my friend's Halloween party (costume fragment demanded for entrance or you get one at the door). They used to look like this:

Dale, Me & Greg

All of this is devolving into bad self-imagery. I was looking at myself before getting in the shower and saw an emoticon staring back at me. It wasn't :-| or even :-), it looked more like :-O.

What Ten Years Really Means...

I am so tired or reading articles with heresay like "scientists say we are ten years away from" something really important to humanity. I read it so much that I think it means "we really have no clue, but sooner not later". How many times have we read that gene therapy is ten years away or that there is a cancer cure ten years away?

While I'm on a roll, I just wanted to let all of my friends and family know that I think I'll be married soon... in about ten years :P.
