"The shield wall has been penetrated by atomics."

It's amazing to me what triggers exist in my mind. Some stuff will make my heart skip a beat on seeing them, or even just thinking of things will cause me to get caught in a wave of feelings. I'm really fortunate that the feelings are generally warm, amorous ones. So, I'm feeling pretty good, despite whatever slings and arrows are coming my way. Thinking about my sweetheart, or watching Newt bouncing around like a nut gives me a nice vibe.

I couldn't find my measuring cup *anywhere* this morning.. I looked on every shelf, and inside the fridge that I could retrace my steps to. Fortunately, I've got another one that came with the bread machine, but it's not a "pour-spout" one, more of a plastic cylinder.. but it was good enough to measure breakfast. Afterwards, it drove me to distraction, so I scoured every inch of the kitchen and dining area until I could find it... eventually, it turned up... behind the fridge. I'm going to blame a little orange so-and-so for that maneuver, or a playful ghost.

I was up pretty late last night.. watched the last half of the long version of Dune and then Futureworld absently, while reading in bed. Futureworld wasn't bad, but it made me want to watch Westworld instead. I didn't realize that Michael Crichton wrote the original, though looking back on it, it seems pretty obvious. Christopher Lambert is showing his age lately, but Lou Diamond Phillips is still looking quite young. in the Sci-Fi TV ad for Absolon.

Very nifty and *free* router software, via mskaren911... I may be putting that to work soon.

The nearby art theater is showing Gigantic (A Tale of Two Johns), a documentary about They Might Be Giants.... I'd like to catch that some time this week.

You can make paintings in CSS? pretty fascinating stuff. (leave the window open for at least 2 minutes to see particularly nifty results) might make for an interesting active desktop.

3-D Stress Ball...a very addictive little game.
