[livejournal.com profile] kosmonaut_blog wants to see other people's handwriting.  Instead of writing her a nice note back, i decided to use this opportunity as an exercise in sedition, because i'm an unpatriotic jerk who hates his country, like Thomas Jefferson.  Please excuse the spots; the scanner was dirty.

You know what?  I'm in a bad mood.  And the best way to improve my mood is to abuse other people, especially the ones i love.

personality test results - turns out i have one )

Who wants to see me holding onto a very large phallic object?  Also, note new almost-circle beard.  I have been told i look "dangerous" and "like a badass".

Kim hit the road to Eugene, OR, this morning, to interview a professor at UofO, as well as visit her friend Judy.  I will be all by my lonesome self until Friday night.

Little Miss Sunshine is a very funny movie.  At its core, the movie is a spoiler )

.  Some minor plot points are a little contrived, but they don't really get in the way of the story.

As seen originally here, i've added a SIP to the unguessed titles.  If you hadn't seen it before, check it out now.  else, follow through )

Y'all've seen this making the rounds, i'm sure: "Pick ten of your favorite books, look them up on Amazon.com, and find the list of Statistically Improbable Phrases for those novels.  Pick a few SIPs from each book, list them here, and then have people guess what books they are.  (Obviously, using Google or Amazon to figure it out is cheating.)."

  • yellow bushes, judicial panel, body exchange
  • dragon with twelve, dragon with eight heads, ten heads
  • robot girls, fifty knots
  • bloated colonel, illegal tobacco, quarter cents (Joseph Heller's "Catch-22", guessed by [livejournal.com profile] nyar)
  • helicopter screws, emotional engineering, pleasant vices (edited this one because i'd made it a bit too vague)
  • senior postman, golden suit (Terry Pratchett's "Going Postal", guessed by [livejournal.com profile] velvet_wood)
  • riddling beast, early dew (John Barnes's "One for the Morning Glory", guessed by [livejournal.com profile] tomscud)
  • psychological arrow, more quarks, imaginary time (Stephen Hawking's "A Brief History of Time", guessed by [livejournal.com profile] mmcirvin)
  • spiritual knighthood, subterranean currents, bearded gentleman (Umberto Eco's "Foucault's Pendulum", guessed by [livejournal.com profile] eejitalmuppet)
  • bun compartment, poor momma, minimal wage (John Kennedy Toole's "A Confederacy of Dunces", guessed by [livejournal.com profile] mmcirvin)

I'm fairly sore that there were no SIPs available for Norton Juster's "The Phantom Tollbooth", Dalton Trumbo's "Johnny Got His Gun", Alan Moore's "Watchmen", or Neal Stephenson's "Snow Crash".

That brigand [livejournal.com profile] hannibaltaburss tagged me for that damn "six weird/strange habits about yourself" meme, then compounded his insult by challenging my manhood.  FIE ON YOU, SIRRAH.

  1. I used to chew my nails.  Now i compulsively trim my nails so i don't chew on them.  It mostly works.



  2. I compulsively trim my facial hair (see a trend?).  When i see a man with a moustache that curls over his lip, i have to restrain myself from whipping out my Victorinox and trimming it.



  3. When i get into bed, i twist my lower body to my left to pop my lower back.



  4. I crack my hand joints in a particular order: first i wiggle the finger to pop the lower interphalangeal joint, right pinky to thumb, left thumb to pinky.  Then i take off my wedding ring, lace my fingers, and squeeze tight.  Then i open my hands and flex my fingers.  Then i put my right fist in my left palm and crack the knuckles, then vice versa.  Then i crack my wrists, right, left.  Then i tighten both hands into a leopard fist.  Then, i twist my right hand outward, then inward; then the left.  Then i stretch my left hand upwards, then downwards; then the right.  After all that, i put my ring back on.



  5. I will obsess over reorganizing our wine rack.  The Rhône varietals go together, see, and we have a zin-mourvèdre blend, so that and the other zins go in the next column, and that includes the primitivo, and since that's Italian, the sangiovese goes next to that, and, god, i have about a column and a half of cabernet sauvignon, what am i going to put in the other half?  Other Bourdeaux grapes, i suppose, but what am i to do with this merlot-carignan blend?  At least the whites have their own smaller, separate rack...

    Hmm, i'm stuck.  I'll have to ask Kim for help.





  6. "Picking your butt zits."  Ugh.  It's true.
     
And there you have it.  Now get offa my lawn!
