I don't post so much here anymore.
For the few people that catch up with me here as opposed to FB or Twitter.

After a long good run, my kitty cat, Chelsea, finally passed away this morning. I miss her a lot.

Do *what* now?
Looking through his contact info on Outlook, my coworker discovered that it thinks his title is "Sr. Digital Media Analyst". Considering he's an entry-level programmer this was a bit of a surprise. Needless to say, none of us actually knows what a Sr. Digital Media Analyst does. My best guess is that this is the guy who sits around all day looking at porn on-line. And analyzing it. And he's been doing it a long time.

just saying.

Hey! LJ Braintrust!
Is there such a thing as non-gratuitous Vin Diesel?

And on a similar note, would you be more distressed if you picked up "XXX" expecting Vin Diesel and instead finding porn. Or would it be worse if you thought you had porn and got Vin Diesel?

They really need to hire me to check these things.
In today's Raleigh News and Observer there's one of those little boxes, hinting at a story further on, at the top of the Life section. It reads:

"Cindy McCain and Michelle Obama have an affinity for chunky pearl necklaces."

All of the sudden I'm concerned about the candidates' STD status.

Cause that clearly ain't right.

I really wish I weren't serious...

...but does anyone know where I can get a hold of a 1-1.5 tons of quicklime?

(no...I'm not trying to dispose of a bunch of bodies)

New Truths
Cap'n Port's Movie/Entertainment Lemma:

Anything is funnier if you add a monkey.
Anything is cooler/scarier if you add zombies.
Anything is more exciting when it's on fire.
And robots are just cool, so you should just throw em in wherever you can.

This has led to the corollary that zombie-monkey-robots on fire is pretty much the pinnacle of entertainment.

I would add to this the proposition that the addition of martial arts has a similar effect to fire. In that it immediately makes things more exciting.

I have also discovered that while the holy grail of the ZMRoF is the single greatest thing one could ever have, it is sometimes possible to have fewer of these key features and still hit a pretty high mark. IFF the features in question are of exceptional quality. This leads to my case in point and recent revelation:

Jet Li dressed as a monkey = ENTERTAINMENT GOLD!

Chickens and ducks seem to deal with the world in different ways. We currently have a group of ducklings and a group of chicks, all roughly the same age. They also share a penchant for escaping from their nursery cages when they're hungry, thirsty, bored or none of the above. When a duckling makes a break for it, it pops out of the cage and plummets off of the table down to the floor with a kinda wet thud. It then proceeds to run around in circles just underneath the cage, until someone finds it, puts it back and corrects whatever problem which caused it to flee the safety of its cage. Apparently, "Peeppeeppeeppeeppeeppeeppeeppeeppeeppeeppeeppeeppeeppeeppeeppeeppeeppeeppeeppeeppeeppeeppeeppeeppeeppeep!!" is duckling for "Ohmygodohmygodohmygodohmygodohmygodohmygodohmygodohmygodohmygodohmygodohmygodohmygodohmygodohmygod!!"

The chicks, on the other hand, have a decidedly different approach. One will escape, and likewise plummet to the floor with a kinda wet thud. It will then figure out where in the house the actual people are. You'll see one poke its head around the couch, and having found you walk up. It will then let out a couple of very calm, yet firm peeps. "Peep! Peep peep-peep? Peep." Which as far as I can tell means, "As the duly appointed representative of the caged chickie alliance, I have been sent to inform you that we are currently lacking in food and/or water. And if it wouldn't be too much of a bother, we would also like a bed-time story."

And just for the record...
I cannot top the badness of the bad morning that golemkennels had this morning, nor will I ever be able to top it. No matter how bad I have it, I won't be able to compare to a shoefull of amniotic fluid.

...what's worse...Shoefull of Amniotic Fluid isn't even a very good band name.
