well-behaved women seldom make history

31 Mar

Here’s another in a series of posts featuring wisdom ripped from the history books that, for whatever reason, speaks to me. I have an almost complete disregard of precedent, and a faith in the possibility of something better. It irritates me to be told how things have always been done. I defy the tyranny of […]

an addendum regarding Friday

28 Mar

Linking to that Rebecca Black video on Friday was, in hindsight, a mistake. I say this because Catherine saw it, and for some reason (most likely the simplistic, monotonous lyrics which are almost ready for Sesame Street, except that Sesame Street lyrics are generally clever and novel), she spent the entire weekend singing it and […]

wisdom from the æther

28 Mar

This probably isn’t a traditional proverb, but you know what? It really ought to be: The long, hard, road to seeking resolution truly begins with the difficult steps of admitting to yourself that your actions were inappropriate, and then telling the harmed party, bluntly and without embellishment or expectation, that you realize you committed the […]

ostaran greetings

21 Mar

I missed posting on the actual vernal equinox, but all things being equal (HA!), I’m not particularly worried. I spent some pleasant time on Saturday afternoon riding the trails along the James, enjoying the pleasant warm springtime weather and the general majesty of nature, running in the bike after a welcome tune-up, and working toward […]

♬Da Da Da-Da-Da♬

21 Mar

Between playing Rock Band: Beatles late into the night with friends on Friday, and watching The Prisoner finale on Saturday afternoon, I’ve had “All You Need Is Love” running through my head all morning, usually paired with the indelible image of Patrick McGoohan with a Thompson submachine gun. At least this earworm is more palatable […]

18 Mar

Since I’m in a mobile (but not really) sort of mood this morning, here’s ten more tunes off of my pandora “quick mix” channel: “Save Me” – Queen “In Your Eyes” – Peter Gabriel “Paper Gangsta” – Lady GaGa “Love Bites” – Def Leppard “Waking Up In Vegas” – Katy Perry “Minneapolis” – That Dog […]

“Enough Is Enough!”

I’ve had it with these monkey-fighting snakes on this Monday-to-Friday Island! Enjoy your St. Patrick’s Day, everyone. __________________ if you need a little help, take a look here and here. Though you don’t need any help, do you?

14 Mar

Happy π (Pi) Day. Please observe a moment of silence (or 26 of them*) at 1:59pm. Mmmmmm. Pie. ______________ * I don’t really have to explain this, do I? If I do, then here.

because it’s really nerdy, that’s why

14 Mar

A couple of discussion points within the geek milieu that I’ve run into in the last couple of days: ♦ – Kill a few minutes by playing URL Hunter, an experimental game played entirely in your browser’s address bar. ♦ – Stan Lee finally puts to rest the “superhero secret” from Mallrats. His answer is […]
