travels - where the road leads

(no subject)

I dreamt last night that I was spelunking, and found a big, open cave with an underground river, full of blind, albino/transparent crayfish. I was up with the sun this morning...and opted to run around the house with Newtie in the A/C rather than riding up to the beach...so sue me. :) I like to play with the baby, y'know.

Note to self... need more cat-sand and cat-food by Saturday night.

Holding off on the epidural for a while... that's a good thing. My back is Jim-dandy right now, anyhow.

N Arr... I be a pi-r8. N With me faithful orange-parrot-cat I be a downloadin' like a fool, I be. got some spiffy new toys to investigate... most of it flashy-stuff, just to teach myself more when I get more time. I also have a good line on a new plot for a short story, I think.

Ooh... the anagram server is nifty. scottobear can be rearranged quite a few ways, with a minimum of effort. I especially like "Boca's Otter", "Tote Cobras", "Cat Booster", "Taboo Crest" and "Reboot Scat"

Well, off to the showers... then to work! Be home tonight, dear journal.

Random Scotto factoid - I don't like to use two deodorants at the same time, if they're different brands.

If I run out of right guard, in the middle of one pit, I'll wash it again, before applying arid extra dry. Some sort of irrational fear of mixing the chemicals, like mixing bleach and dishwashing detergents, even though I don't think either can contains ammonia or mild acids. a secondary concern is having the scents mixed. Mind you, I don't mind having cologne and deodorant on at the same time (he says, applying patchouli)

Also, this is an excuse to try out my "Newton through the wheel of time" icon... photos cycle backwards over three apartments, from the year 2002 back to 2000. (I should apply some baby piccies at the very end.)

Well, off to work for real, now. *Waves bye-bye*

Hearing my sweetheart laugh is a wonderful, wonderful thing.

Fox's "hidden camera" show is fantastic, too by the way.. if anything, it's too short. They need to put on two-hour specials.

Relaxing now, unwinding before heading off to sleep.

Puttering around the web...

Licensed variants of Monopoly. In Monopoly, you buy properties and then charge people increasingly exorbitant amounts of money when they stay there. As board games go, it's a workable metaphor. It doesn't apply to everything though. I mean, you can't build a hotel on Bulbasaur. It just doesn't work.

True porn clerk stories... I wonder if squarerootofpi can relate? This is an utterly fascinating journal about working in a porn shop. The author stays away from the usual "my wacky job" clichés, and instead writes with great humor and insight about not only the unusual customers and politics of renting porn, but also about the effects on herself, and how the experience has changed her. It's a long set of entries, all remarkable and entertaining.

the Phobia list.

What, right this moment, is the scariest thing you can think of?

The Ace Doubles Paperback Image Library - ignore the ugly website design and savor the art of cheezy vintage paperbacks. Great illustrations, nifty titles, breathless story descriptions, crazy hand lettering ... it's all there.

100 Years of Jell-O ads.

nighty-night dear journal.
