TV shoot this morning. Should be interesting to see what sort of motley collection of transit-types they got to be there.
My guesses are that there will be one wheelchair, a black woman, and a Hispanic of whatever gender the person in the wheelchair *isn't*. Unlikely to be represented, though there are plenty that ride the bus are Asian students and people on oxygen. I also suspect that they *won't* have a representative methadone clinic-goer, a drunk, or a crazy derelict.
Am I being cynical? I don't think so.
Streaming Beluga-cam! Thanks, jennylee!
Yesterday continued my study in regional anthropology. I got to observe regional cultures effects when brought together quite a bit this weekend. Brazil, Spain, California, New York, Florida and more were all represented, doing displays of plumage and mating dances to an assortment of native music, with strategy and tactics going on in the background. Basically, I stopped off at the club to drop off a rockabilly mix CD, and ended up staying for some hours, because walkabout struck me as a big boring in comparison to sit-about. Got to gab with mzkitten, Steve, and new barkeep - Marissa. Marissa is absolutely gorgeous, has an excellent demeanor, and has never tasted Brie cheese before. I drank about 9 diet cokes. I saw Ivan, one of my old cab drivers back from when I was living in Pompano. He didn't recognize me, and I didn't chat him, as he was more interested in getting to a poker game.
I've got to get Danny to go with me sometime... I think it's a far better watering-hole than our current place. I'm also looking quite forward to going out on Wednesday with her and the gals! uberbastard should get his butt down for the fun! C'mon, Uber!!
Before I even arrived at the community nexus, I got a sidebar of people-watching/interaction by calling a paramedic for a homeless man who was unable to walk, due to an extremely painful weeping infection on his right leg. I saw him at about noon-1ish, and he said that he had been stuck there by the bus stop since before sunrise. Who knows how long he would've sat there... he said that he saw a bunch of buses go by, but none stopped, and nobody could hear him calling out to them.
Sesame Street's Letter of the Day. Features Cookie Monster scarfing cookies, as is appropriate, no matter wht the politically correct, non-fat version of PBS says.
I dreamt that I lived in a tree in the jungle, and that Newt slept on my head like a coonskin cap. There were monkeys on branches near ours, but none wore cats as hats. They did have sugarcane to chew on, though. I think that was because I was talking to blackhellkat about molasses earlier. speaking of bhk.. check out her lovely kitty, Pyewacket.

GM says drop 2d10, aanndd... you roll 100% !
What, are you a first generation gamer? Did you own the brown box?!
Whatever you do in your spare time, gaming seems to be your job. Either
you looked up the answers or you're the best of the best, the type that
makes other gamers strive to know more. Just don't let the knowledge
overwhelm the newbies, it tends to push them from the hobby.
We all bow before you. You are the living nat 20, congratulations. I'm
going to flee the scene now ;)

I guessed on two of the vampire questions.
I've been hearing a lot about the Illuminati, lately. Do I think that there is one small cabal of powerful men that control everything? Nah. I do think that there are a number of small cabals of powerful men that control a lot, though. Are they being played by a greater power? I doubt it, but even if they are, if you filter it down to the common man, it doesn't really make a difference.
One world government? I doubt it'll ever happen.
Talking about the Illuminati isn't dangerous. Heck, they're the major bad guys on the Gargoyles Cartoon, and the Freemasons are and old boy's club that does good works for burn victims.
Something funny.. when I was talking to Mzk about the Illuminati, the amount on the next drink bill was $23.
Make of that coincidence what you will. (click for info on 23 and secret societies) Synchronicity is catching.
I do really like the card game Illuminati (the regular version, not the trading card version), almost as much as I dig Fluxx.
I have the urge to call people "Little Cowpoke" today. I don't know where that came from.

She's not long-lost! I already read her regularly! :D
Astronaut Jones: The Creature From Porpula
Moment of Lyric:
I'm taking a rocket.
I'm packing my suitcase
Hey, look out, Moon!
Yeah, a rocket
into outer space.
Goodbye, human race
I'll be there soon.
For fun and adventure.
There's a fair adventure
Yeah, it's my way
on the ol' space highway.
That's why they all say
"There goes Astronaut Jones!"
