scotto monkeypulse

found by way of jennylee!

Ok... I couldn't blow us all up. I didn't have the moxie. I did, however use my special bee-powers to travel back in time and lobotomise destroll, before he killed me. In other news, Jennylee found this keen test! I can't believe she's grinchier than I am.

I scored a 5!

Pack your bags for a Whoville holiday! You'll spend 4 days and 5 nights donned in a plush red and green faux-fur lined coat and a funky cool hat! Visit the world's largest Christmas Tree and bathe in yuletide cheer as Whoville residents welcome you into their loving holiday sing-song circle...we know you're really just in it for the gifts.

Grinch test.

How many people had chili for supper recently, like tonight?

many many!

at least 4 of my friends did... 2 lj (Ginamoog and nashata) and two meatspace pals, Dave and Cathi!

It's odd to me, but I'm easily boggled, I suppose.

Played AOK with Sweetalyssm today, and learned quite a lot of helpful tips on how to develop in there (and how to be destroyed by a rampaging brigade of elephants. note to self, make lots of priests, and convert the enemy. it's faster that trying to fight 'em) Now I just have to figure out good counter groups.

Had a delightfully long conversation with my sweetie. Her voice is beautiful, musical, and soothing. Smart girl, too, and fun. we read together a classic bit of literature...and had a grand time Reading it like pirates to boot. Arr, matey. :)

Keen crows in japan that can drop nuts on the road to have cars run them over, and fly down when the light changes to eat the meat inside. neat documentary on PBS

Just watched a betty boop cartoon, starring Popeye! weird!

Got to see Robbo tonight after all! hooray! We went to Denny's and talked, I had cherry pie ala mode with my fave coffee. (pie coffee for me is black, double sweet. I felt like Agent cooper, in a South Florida version of twin peaks.)

He's blowing out of here on Wednesday-ish. Very sad, but I'm super happy he's going to Seattle, as it's a great step for him... been talking about it for as long as I've known him. :) It's odd, we didn't get to be good friends until after everyone else left, really.

I present 5 fun facts about Robbo. (some reasons I like him)

1. We share the same birthday, February 2. Groundhogs Day, Candlemas, Imbolc, and very close to the Chinese new year, depending, and fat Tuesday. (Of course, I was born like 6 years ahead of him... weird generation gappy stuff, which makes things fun to talk about, like late 70's.)

2. He's the least egotistical computer guy I know. Not a braggart. A fine quality in someone competent.(or someone incompetent, for that matter... but Robbo knows what he's doing.)

3. A fine eclectic Taste in media. Music, movies and books are all open, and he can appreciate most all of them. a co-fan of They might be giants, soul coughing, cat power, and prairie home companion.

4. A very similar world view to my own. "If it's worth doing, it's worth doing all the way, or not at all". (scaled down a mite, to balance with reality, and personal comfort zones) can lead to a little trouble, but I think is a good motto. Went through some of the same things I did, but later. I feel that of my pals that've moved away, we'll stay in touch. Might get lazy about it, but I don't see it breaking off completely, like the others who have moved out of state. His sense of style is different than mine, I prefer a clunky but functional thing, he likes pretty and maybe less functional. (or more expensive and neater abilities, while I like Spartan and 'does what I need')

5. Just a swell guy. I've only really seen him angry once, and even then, he was pretty cool about it. For knowing him about a year and a half, that's a good track record. Had some great conversations with him over coffee, observations, and interesting things about people, and why they act the way they do. He's the type of guy that instead of getting road rage, is likely to want to pull a bad driver over in front of him, and just ask them what they were thinking. (in this day of dangerous psychos on the road, he doesn't of course, so he's destined to just be curious, and we speculate.)

Well, time for me to go to bed. Work tomorrow! (I hope. I still don't know why the locks were changed on Saturday.)

Well, I'll just think happy thoughts of her, until I hear from the real deal.

Fresh, from the mouth fo 3-d man!

I have a quick question...

Seriously, you should see this.Greetings true believers, I am 3-D MAN! In the 1950's I defended America's shores from alien ... uh ... alien ... whoa, sorry, but if you could just see what you look like. You're coming right at me! It's amazing! do wishing wells work? If I make a wish, and tell someone, will it not come true, like a birthday cake?

How about if you lie, like "you know, I really really might've wished for world peace, but I didn't, because then it wouldn't happen"

Upside of this evening... got to talk to the girl, downside, it was cut short, due to technical difficulties. :(

I am delighted to have spent some time, however brief...but I didn't get to wish her sweet dreams, and so on.

Well, in other news, Robbo is officially gone... movers came today and packed him up, so he's driving north first waking tomorrow. He left me with some non-essentials, nibbling on graham crackers he abandoned for the move right now. I'm really going to miss him. a swell guy. Oh well, a good reason to visit Seattle, now.

I'm still in awe of the number of replies to bee-man. I almost have a need to post another pic of him, just to get more responses. :) The queen bee was quite conciliatory today, I enjoyed her being around, pumping larvae from her thorax, with much regalness...:) She is so lovely with her magnificent distended thorax and multifaceted eyes....I'm proud to be her worker bee....
