7444 - Monday, and so it begins again!

Happy Birthday, ldy!
Hope it's a great one, littler big sis!




Also, Big lovies for Sedef today!



Flip side of listening to audio books, OTR, etc... my eyes actually shut off a little when I focus on my ears. My multitasking skills are weak when it comes to processing sensory inputs, it seems.



Looks like the Hukilau is progressing nicely! The New Website is up, and it's looking sharp. Great music, too. A shame it's all flash, but it's lovely, nonetheless.

If folks are going to be in Fort Lauderdale at the top of October, I hope to see you there!

I have to remember to call and set reservations tomorrow morning, so I don't forget later on.

954-563-3272 I think I'll hit the 7pm show, rather than the 10. I wonder if I could lure Danny into going? Doubtful, as it'll be well into the school schedule. Maybe I can tempt him by sending him to the Dames A'flame website.

BRING ON MONKEY ZUMA!



Made tentative plans for Danny on Thursday. Moroccan food and belly dancers, maybe?



Bro had me make a phone call for him to get a ride from some clown with a Texas number on his cell phone. Whoever I called is pretty shady. He called me from "Uncle Bob's", his storage facility on Sample in Pompano.



Criminy... a Speed Racer Geico commercial? I'm pretty impressed.. the got the voice talent spot on.

Random Scotto Factoid - Speed Racer is how I found the link between 5 and the board game "Go". (A lot of Japanese show titles make a bilingual pun out of "go," the Japanese word for "five" and the English word for, well, "go." That's why Speed Racer's car is the Mach 5 -- the Japanese name of the show is Maku Go Go Go)

Have they gotten around to showing classic 'toons again on the cartoon network? I'd dig watching some of Speed Racer and the Herculoids sometime. Any show where characters are named "Lightfingers Klepto, Jr" or "Ivonna von Vondervon" is fairly groovy to me.



CVS seems to charge for food by weight rather than content. A packet of cereal, cheese crackers, cookies or a soft drink all seem to go for about $.05 per ounce, give or take. Maybe I'm making connections where there are none.

The initials stand for "Customer, Value, Service". I suspect most of the employees at the store on Broward and Federal don't know this.



Recent comments is a good way to stay on top of posts if mail doesn't come in a timely manner.



Dr. Who was another follow up episode from a prior one (This time, the TV Satellite one, a hundred years later). More consequences. I didn't think that I'd be too fond, but I really rather liked it. One of the major plot points was pretty obvious, but it mostly served to push to the season finale.

I appreciate Jack's Holdout skills. "It's a pleasure, which is the only thing that matters in the end." Which means I still don't like his character very much. I'm starting to wonder if the Doctor is going to pick up a stray every third episode, give or take?

Again, I wonder about the suggested age group for the show. It's still written for clever 10-year olds, but has more sexual overtones and violent innuendo than I'd like for a 10-year old to see. Perhaps I'm reading too much into it. The market for most science fiction/action shows doesn't have to be very intelligent, just entertaining... sex (well, at least "Single entendres") and violence (bloodless ray-beam death, and exploding aliens) are certainly that. It's still more intelligently written than anything the Sci-fi channel has produced.

I suspect that I'm being too much of a prude, and it's really written as popcorn for 13-years rather than a younger group.

I forgot how much I like the Impact font.



Moment of Lyric:

The wild dogs cry out in the night
As they grow restless longing for some solitary company
I know that I must do what's right
Sure as Kilimanjaro rises like Olympus above the Serengeti
I seek to cure what's deep inside, frightened of this thing that I've become
