Andrew is watching a brain-rotting program about golems. He was listing the stories where the idea of the golem are mentioned. I interrupted with, “Tolkien!” Andrew lectured, “No, Tolkien never wrote about Gollum–” He stopped and lowered his head. I howled in laughter.

travelin’ man

May 27th, 2012

Andrew’s been sleeping his way all over the bed this morning–sideways, upside down, even on the floor at one point. I’m kinda thankful I didn’t try to sleep while he’s traveling around.

in other news, water is wet

Soooo, the EPA wants ALL THE LOGGING ROADS paved because muddy water is going into the streams. Next, they’ll put an edict against God for putting mud on land where it can go into the pristine streams. Or something.

Upon getting the car serviced at a tune-up place: ‎$230 later, they are indeed Jiffy and well-Lubed. Err, wait…

Three separate people messaged either Andrew or me today to tell us they were trying really really hard to secure some free self-sealing beer bottles for Andrew. All three people were unwittingly trying to procure the same items from the same person. I had a horrible moment of wanting to say yes to everyone, just to see who would score and who would be left out while jostling with each other. I didn’t, but I was tempted.

hand farts

I was a little disgruntled that the clouds obscured a rare near-total eclipse in my area. This was my way of blowing raspberries and thumbing my nose at the weather.

Cool fact: a person who uses their hands to create farts to music is called a manualist.

Just in case you were wondering about the content of the book “Fifty Shades of Gray,” here’s a video of Gilbert Gottfried lending his dulcet tones to the audio book version.

warmer sound

Someone on Craigslist advertised a free “analog” TV. I know they mean a not-flat unit with a vacuum tube, but I had a different mental image due to the word in quotes–an empty picture frame that someone holds up to their own face to view the world through.

Kinda like these seen-on-TV “HD glasses” a former workplace sold. As if our vision doesn’t already provide us a roughly 16×9 view of the world, hehehe. These days, the same company would probably schlep “3D glasses” under the same premise.

lost her head

May 18th, 2012

‎32 years ago today, Mt. St. Helens had the wardrobe malfunction (her top fell off). She always was a little hot-headed.

Why is it that I can’t listen to Stevie Nick’s vibrato without imagining her pointing a finger in front of her throat and shaking it vigorously?
