6849 - Rainy Sunday Morning. Nice.

Ack. Pen blew up in the laundry, and wrecked a sheet-set and a couple of shirts.

I was looking for an excuse to get some new gear, anyhow.

Best quote heard so far this morning -
"No supernatural transformations on the bus."

Solar X-rays:

Geomagnetic Field:

My eyes go "gutter-sniping" when I walk after a rain, and before the street sweepers catch up with things. it's amazing what little things get washed into the corners... glass, cigarette butts, and assorted trash. The thing that surprises me the most is bones. I can't say that see creature bits every day, but it happens more often than I would have expected.

I just don't see bones that often, since I stopped eating meat. The people I dine out with seldom seem to go in for fried chicken or rib eye steaks, so even secondhand food bone-sightings on a plate are exceedingly rare.

They're not always in the water-flow.. sometimes along the beach things are left in the reeds. When I see sun-bleached, dry bones out on my travels, I sometimes forget that it might remnants of a human's meal unless there's a some sort of context clue like fire traces or greasy foam tray nearby. I don't have the greatest grip on biology. I can tell a bird bone from the remains of something a bit more earthbound, but that's about it. I've stumbled upon whole skeletons of what I assume to be seagulls.. I wonder what killed them? Did they drop out of the sky, dead of old age? I have no idea.

I think it's cool that some tennis shoe commercial is using "He needs me" from Popeye as theme music. I don't know which one it is, but it's nice to hear the song in the background. Here's a wmv file of Olive singing the song to Popeye. (7.2 meg)

A *lot* of people disliked that movie, but I enjoyed it quite a bit.

Why do I have an urge to visit Portugal?

Target's sandalwood incense is excellent. I'll buy it again... good gamble.

Dan and I playing Heroclix 2 years ago... it always surprises me when I see us next to one another for scale.

I would love to have the whole Honey, I Shrunk the Kids TV series on DVD.
