Another One!

My horoscope for Friday!
Quickie: When building a relationship, you have to have faith. Take the leap -- together. Overview: People who are a drain on your energy won't change, no matter how many chances you give them. Resolve to protect yourself and find like-minded types who are on your wavelength, rather than people you need to take care of.

Get Nailed!

This article about R.K. Milholland is one of the best that I have read. He is the author of the webcomic Something Positive. I'll definitely be going back to Sudden Nothing for more reads if her future interviews continue to be this good. That's right, Randy was her first. She's a smart one to start at the bottom of the barrel. ;) Enjoy (or be enraged) at the snippet:
"LM: The very first comic features Davan sending one of his ex-girlfriends a coat hanger as a baby shower gift. I know you’ve said these early strips are based very heavily on true events, but my question here is – were you purposely trying to kick off the comic with an unapologetically brutal moment so that readers would know what they were getting into? Or was it just funny? RKM: (laughing) It was a mix. I mean, what happened was… that story was based off an ex of mine. We were trying to be friends. I had just moved to Boston and she was contacting me and I was very suspicious of her, which wasn’t very fair of me. Anyway, she called me up and said she got me a Christmas gift and I thought damn, now I have to get something for her, so – she was eight months pregnant at the time, so I asked her if she’d like a fifth of whiskey and a clothes hanger. (there is a pause here as we both laugh… because, really, who can resist the fun-loving, family-friendly humor of whiskey and a coathanger?)"

The Nice One?

So, this weekend, right? I was out with my friend, okay, and she was having…issues. My friend kept FREAKING OUT because no one would answer her calls. Sure, they might call her back later, but whenever she called someone, they would NOT PICK UP THE BLOODY PHONE! Let’s just call it one of her pet peeves. So anyway, she was supposed to come over for dinner on Tuesday, and I called her that day to find out when she was coming over. Well, she DIDN’T ANSWER and she doesn’t EVEN HAVE VOICE MAIL so I couldn’t leave her a message. So, I call her, but this time from another phone, right? And she didn’t pick up. By that afternoon I WAS A LITTLE FREAKED out because she hadn’t BOTHERED TO PICK UP THE PHONE AND NOTICE THAT I WAS CALLING HER LIKE A STALKER, yo. I even called her work, right, just to make sure that she wasn’t there.

But she wasn’t. So, I got home and called, STILL NO ANSWER. Dude, I even e-mail her. NOT ONE THING! We had dinner, amazing chicken fajitas by the way, and she did not come over. Or even call to say that she wasn’t coming over. So after dinner, right, I put on a bra, FOR HER, and went to see if she was okay BECAUSE I KNEW HOW MUCH SHE DOESN’T LIKE IT WHEN PEOPLE DON’T ANSWER THEIR PHONES AND I KNEW SHE WASN’T WORKING SO WHAT’S THE DEAL, yo? I get over there, her car is there, I knock, she answers. Everything was cool, yo. She just felt anti-social AND MADE ME LOOK LIKE A BIG STALKER.
Yes, this is about you. I love you. And you suck. Just answer your phone :P
The end.
By the way, tonight I think meatballs and baked potatoes are on the menu. If you’re interested, and want to come over. You might even want to CALL US AND LET US KNOW.

A Cry and a Laugh

I watched Fever Pitch the other night. It was good and made me cry. It has Drew and Jimmy in it. What else do you need? I'm not sure who I liked Drew with better though. Fallon or Sandler? Maybe all three could be in a movie and the guys end up together? That would be hilarious. I liked Nicole Kidman in The Stepford Wives mostly because she seemed so free in this character. Even though that doesn't seem like the right word. But it was one of the few roles that she really looked like she was having fun in. That she could breathe in. Gods...was this her first comedy? All of her others roles, she was quite serious. I don't know, maybe working with Bette Midler just does that to a girl. Can't wait to see: Stewie Griffin: The Untold Story. For all of you other fans out there, I just found this site.


Next: Big Foot

TOKYO - The giant squid can be found in books and in myths, but for the first time, a team of Japanese scientists has captured on film one of the most mysterious creatures of the deep sea in its natural habitat. The team led by Tsunemi Kubodera, from the National Science Museum in Tokyo, tracked the 26-foot long Architeuthis as it attacked prey nearly 3,000 feet deep off the coast of Japan's Bonin islands. "We believe this is the first time a grown giant squid has been captured on camera in its natural habitat," said Kyoichi Mori, a marine researcher who co-authored a piece in Wednesday's issue of the Proceedings of the Royal Society B: Biological Sciences. The camera was operated by remote control during research at the end of October 2004, Mori told The Associated Press on Wednesday. Mori said the giant squid, purplish red like its smaller brethren, attacked its quarry aggressively, calling into question the image of the animal as lethargic and slow moving. "Contrary to belief that the giant squid is relatively inactive, the squid we captured on film actively used its enormous tentacles to go after prey," Mori said. "It went after some bait that we had on the end of the camera and became stuck, and left behind a tentacle" about six yards long, Mori said. Kubodera, also reached by the AP, said researchers ran DNA tests on the tentacle and found it matched those of other giant squids found around Japan. "But other sightings were of smaller, or very injured squids washed toward the shore — or of parts of a giant squid," Kubodera said. "This is the first time a full-grown, healthy squid has been sighted in its natural environment in deep water." Kubodera said the giant squid's tentacle would not grow back, but the squid's life was not in danger. Jim Barry, a marine biologist at Monterey Bay Aquarium Research Institute in California, has searched for giant squid on his own expeditions without luck. "It's the holy grail of deep sea animals," he said. "It's one that we have never seen alive, and now someone has video of one."

The Cemetery

The Old Granary Burial Ground in Boston was awesome! About all of the tombstones had skulls and angels with skull faces. Very gothic. Makes me want to have a full mausoleum one day.
Image hosted by
Park Street Church, the site of the old town granary where grain was kept before the Revolution, dates back to 1809. This Evangical Church of "firsts" is the location of the first Sunday school in 1818 and the first prison aid in 1824. On July 4, 1829, William Lloyd Garrison gave his first public anti-slavery speech here and two years later, "My Country 'Tis of Thee" was sung for the first time by the church children's choir.

Image hosted by
At least 1,600 people are known to have been buried in this tiny graveyard, as the land-poor colonial Boston, old graves often were dug up to make way for new bodies; the spongy ground hastened deterioration.

Image hosted by
Among those laid to rest at this stop along the Freedom Trail: Paul Revere, John Hancock, Samuel Adams, the victims of the Boston Massacre and Christopher Snider, a 12-year-old boy killed by a British soldier 11 days before the massacre.

Image hosted by
The large central obelisk marks the graves of Benjamin Franklin's parents; Franklin himself, though born in Boston, died in Philadelphia. And Elizabeth Vergoose, buried here in 1690, is believed to be the prolific storyteller later immortalized as Mother Goose.

Image hosted by
One of the things that I learned in Boston is how much of history tends to be based on false accounts. For example, Paul Revere never completed his ride. The poem used his name though because it rhymed better. I call it poetic liscense.

All About Her

I think that these bowls would definitely encourage me to eat cereal every morning. Especially on those days when you need a little more 'oof' to your day. Or when no one is around to see how fabulous you look walking out the door (before wind from the highway ruins the 'do). Or when your night was a let-down and you are now looking forward to spend more quality time with your cats. I think that these bowls would become part of the everyday dishes, don't you?

Positive Reinforcement

This is absolutely brilliant. Found via him.
Here's how it works: You decide on the amount you would like to pledge for each protester (minimum 10 cents). When protesters show up on our sidewalks, Planned Parenthood Southeastern Pennsylvania will count and record their number each day from October 1 through November 30, 2005. We will place a sign outside the health center that tracks pledges and makes protesters fully aware that their actions are benefiting PPSP. At the end of the two-month campaign, we will send you an update on protest activities and a pledge reminder.

That's right! A health center is having a marathon. Pledge your money and the total depends on how many pro-lifers show up outside of this clinic. I wonder how long it will last.

Drac, the Read

I finished reading DRACULA by Bram Stoker the other night. Edward Gorey illustrated the work which added a humorous twist. I kept asking, "Are they taking themselves too seriously?" How much do they miss or how much time is wasted due to propriety? How has it helped them? Drac himself seemed to be missing for most of the book. At first I was waiting for him to really attack, then there was all of the planning and tracking down his dirt. The end really seemed to be building though. Like, okay, something is up, there has got to be a major turn coming. But it was not what I thought it would be.
However the idea of compiling the book with journal entries and having your characters rely on those entries was an interesting idea. Most journal novels I have read seem to be more of a cop-op for writers and give a foggy picture of the world. But in Dracula it was much different. I started to think more about how I blog. What is important? Did I capture enough information for later? It reminded me of how I can't wait to see the pictures that I just got developed. I can't remember what I took a picture of, but hope that I captured enough of what I wanted. Odd enough, I always seem upset that there are never enough pictures of me. I want to know about what I was doing. Was I happy? How did I interact with this environment? Hey! There's a picture of a building, but did I ever go inside? Why is it so important that I have a picture of it? Will I feel the same way about my blog in a couple of years?
Suggestions for what to read next?

Autumn Daydreams

Jen has inspired me to post about Norse Mythology. (Picture here.)
My first encounter with Norse Mythology was my sophomore year of high school in English class. My instructor told us about how in college she had to do a huge research paper about the Norse sagas and she and her classmates scoured the local libraries for information. It sounded like she was scraping so much as picking info out of books with a pair of tweezers. With one Google search I have found 604,000 results in 0.12 seconds. It's good to have the internets.
A list from the University of Pittsburgh. From there I found a list of all things fae! The World of the Vikings sounds impressive. Wow...I'm kind of wanting to read the Wheel of Time series now. That, and have a wonderful autumn fest in a huge field.
There were be a tent, with roasted food and wine and mead. Children would be running in the leaves, women would wear a ringlet of leaves and fall flora. And everyone would gorge themselves on food. Corn and breads, roasted beef and potatoes. Just when you think you can't eat anymore, you see the table full of pies, cakes, candies and tarts. The feast is merry and plentiful. A bonfire will light the sky while we sit and sing and drink and tell stories until we retire. The shadows grow darker and the night takes over. An appropriate welcome for the second harvest. Someday....

Salty Facts

Sick of people just saying 'Arrrrr'? Me too. Here are some links to enlighten your day about what a real pirate is.
Walking the plank is a hollywood myth. Here are some real punishments used by pirates Did you know that each pirate had their own flag or jolly roger that was flown? And that there is a difference between a red flad and a black flag? Find out here. Or what about all of that treasure? You would think that many would give up their regular jobs for the life of a pirate, especially with all of those beautiful Spanish galleons just lazily floating by. If you would like to teach about pirates in your classroom, this site has many different links. Or, instead of talking like a pirate, why not learn some shanties and sing like one? If you really have caught the pirate bug, why not just experience it? Every year in Key West a Pirates in Paradise Festival is held. If only I had known about this beforehand.... Perhaps you don't like to leave the house, so you can read about pirates or just watch 'em. And of course, not all pirates were men.

Cults and Rumors

Halloween is getting closer, and some people might be concerned about the truly 'evil people' or local 'cults' in the area. Here is a website called Cults 'R Us Hit List. This site lists cults that have been disbanded, cults that have drunk the Kool-aid, and new cults that are on the rise.
Snopes also has a great list of urban legends based on Halloween. Scary stories are fun, but they are no reason to ruin Halloween for others. Remember, just because someone likes to wear all black doesn't mean that they are in a cult. They are just scared of conformists.

About Time

A new judgement in Nepal has brought women out of the cowshed and into their homes. I hope it lasts.
"Women in poor villages in much of western Nepal are forced to stay in dirty cow-sheds outside the home for four days during their monthly period.
They are often given unhygienic food and suffer verbal abuse."

The Ultimate Hippie Vacation

I know this person's neighbor. Read the story.
Yes, it is a real e-bay auction. Looks like you are also bidding on a road trip.

The Rules of the Trip:
You will be required to sell Tie-dyed T-shirts for gas and food money. There is no map on the bus and he WILL get lost. Stuff Happens! (And you know what I mean!) If the bus blows up, he has a tent. You must provide your own bail money. (Please see rule 3) He will provide "the most craziest vacation you will never forget!" Okay, the deal is, my brother-in-law and his huge hippie bus moved into our backyard. AND WE WANT HIM OUT! Please help us by bidding on this auction! Every bid moves him one step farther out of our yard!

Boston Trip Part One

Wednesday night my husband and I and four of our friends launched off to Boston! I had no idea that Missouri had so many adult video stores. I woke up somewhere around the Indiana/Ohio border. Just in time to stop at Bob Evans Restaurant for crepes! I took over driving from about one hundred miles west of Columbus to 32 miles west of Eerie, Pennsylvania. Although I didn't get to take pictures I did get to see Lake Eerie. Just Ontario and Huron left to see! It started to get a little rough by the time we stopped at McDonald's for dinner. I think we were all ready for a stationary nap. I woke up in Buffalo, and felt great! I felt so great that I think I started to worry one of my friends for she repeatedly told me that 'Drugs are bad.' Thirty hours later...we were in Boston!!! And I finally got to see the ocean!

I was quite excited. With my shoes off and my husband's hand in mine, we walked along the coast. Little kids were busy making sand castle's. I think there were even scouts in the water working on a badge.

It was the perfect time.

I could barely contain my excitement. Luckily, Glenn was good enough to just take it.

After a wonderful dinner at Bob's Crab Shack, we headed off to the Dragon Crest event. At which I proceeded to take some beautiful black and white pictures of my friends in their costumes. Now, if only I could find someone to put those pictures onto cd for me, since it seems to be the one thing that Wal-mart does not do.

This is my husband playing his Dragon Crest character, Click! Isn't he cute? If I get permission, then I will post more pics of everyone. There are still at least two rolls to develop.

Us after a long day of Dragoncrest.
Little did we know that in a couple of days we would go on a whirlwind tour of Boston! It was amazing!!!
