life and thought – neither particularly original

27 May

Weekend: exterior light fixtures. bicycle. card games. guacamole. laundry. measurement. renfaire. burritos. Not particularly unusual. Random thought: The Bourne Legacy works surprisingly well if you pretend that it’s basically a pre-Avengers solo Hawkeye movie. Just replace Treadstone/Outcome with some Black Ops fork of the Super Soldier program or Department H, and add a scene at […]

love wins out in pennsylvania

21 May

While news of same-sex marriage bans being struck down across the country isn’t exactly an uncommon headline these days, the decision in Pennsylvania yesterday is of particular significance to me. While I mostly consider myself a Virginian these days, having spent nearly half my life here, and having lived in my current residence in the […]

In this case, it’s kind of embellished as well, but only by about three or four hours, and when we’re talking airport time, it doesn’t get much tighter than that, […]

because sometimes, things come to your brain unbidden

07 May

…this particular phrase just popped into my head at random this afternoon. I shall now share it with you: My own stools, Sir, are gigantic and have no more odor than a hot biscuit. Haven’t seen this particular movie in years, but the image is *right there* and it made me laugh.

because it’s tradition

01 May

Around these parts on this day, it’s become customary to figuratively dance around the May pole and post a version of this particular tune for the entertainment of visitors: One, because it’s funny and I enjoy almost all things Coulton. Secondly, because it is, believe it or not, a lesson in history and culture; in […]
