scotto monkeypulse

8320 - Newton Monday Icon withheld this time.

Dr Who Ep 2 was much better than the first of the season.

Elements of Bad Wolf and Torchwood, much better ambiance, and clever writing. (Funky fighting monks, and a werewolf stalking Queen Victoria doesn't hurt either.) Potential Steampunk world at war.

Sarah Jane and K9 next week!

Monday Meeting today. New Trainers from Alabama. I hope the accents aren't too hard for me to follow.

Why do steam irons have a "permanent press" setting?

Nifty random factoid - Botswana is the only country in the world (that I know of, anyhow) currently with a color in its flag meant to represent rain (a sort of blue-gray). (Others that existed in the past - Lesotho '66-'87, but I'd never heard of that place before doing research.)

Giant open directory of music - slow to download, but well populated.

"On behalf of the New York Police Department, I'm pleased to bring you the head of Dionysus." Collapse )

Moment of Lyric' - mp3 - via

No one to talk with,
All by myself,
No one to walk with,
But I'm happy on the shelf
Ain't misbehavin',
I'm savin' my love for you

I know for certain,
The one I love,
I'm through with flirtin',
It's you I'm thinkin' of.
Ain't misbehavin',
I'm savin' my love for you
Like Jack Horner in the corner
Don't go nowhere,
What do I care,
Your kisses are worth waitin' for
Be-lieve me
I don't stay out late,
No place to go,
I'm home about eight,
Just me and my radio
Ain't misbehavin',
I'm savin' my love for you.

8321 - H - wow, it is trickier than it might appear!

Here is how it works: Comment in this entry, and I will give you a letter. Write ten words beginning with that letter including an explanation of what those words mean to you and why.

Weezeroni, that clever Weezle gave me an "H." Here goes:

1 - Home. I need a place to keep myself and my stuff... somepleace where I can shut the doors and nobody else will have the right to come in and root through my stuff. I don't mind having a housemate, but I really prefer to have a region that is exclusively mine. Newt is welcome anywhere, at any time, however.

2 - Hugs. I love 'em. I love to give em out to folks that aren't made uncomfortable by them. I can be gentle, or do a spine-snapper depending on the tastes of the recipient.

3 - Humor - Of all sorts. Dry, black, witty, satire, scatalogical, slapstick... I laugh easily, even at some things that my forebrain tells me that I shouldn't. I especially like folks that are quick wits, and those that "think outside the box". That said, Tom Green was never, ever funny. He's just an idiot.

4 - Harmony - When people or things just synch up and work without tossing a cog. Music is just one side of it.

5 - Her-folk (possibly also hormones or just human?) - I have a weakness for girls. So sue me. It's not just "hotties", but almost all women get some pedastal treatment, unless they've proved themselves to be severe headcases or manipulators, which then causes me to toss them into the discard pile.

6 - Hubbub/Humanity - I confess that movement and activity of people facinates me. So much about people stll confuses me, and I'm one of 'em. Different behaviors, clothes, interactions... there is monkey politics, to be sure, but folks are really amazing how they interact with one another. I'd like to think that people are fundamentally, if basic needs are met, but experience tells me that some are, and some arent. See health, below.

7 - Health - Physical, Mental, Spiritual and Social. I think that the root of all problems comes from damage in these areas. Money isn't the root of all evil, it just adds opportunity for more good or evil.

8 - Happiness - I like to make people happy, including myself. Life's too short to sweat the small stuff... I don't always remember that, but when I do, it pays off in spades.

9 - Horripilation - An awesome term meaning "goosebumps". One of my favorite little-used words. I like the thrill that comes from reading a really scary story, or going on a roller coaster type ride with a huge drop.

10- Herbivore - I prefer not to eat the flesh of an animal, if I can help it, due to the cruelty factor involved, not to mention it's more evironmentally sound and healthy. I'm a bit hypocritical (another H word!) on that, because I will do eggs and dairy, mostly out of convenienceGeotarget
