Messed Up Dream Time So

Messed Up Dream Time

So I’m walking around a strange city with some friends and we find ourselves in a cafĂ© across the street from none other than the home of Martha Stewart! It sits behind a restaurant that bears her name. A psychic comes up to us and tells us that all kinds of great things will happen if we go into her home and eat in the restaurant. She tells me that I will meet the person who, in my childhood, made my heart go pitter pat whenever he called or wrote. I have no idea who this is but am dying to see!

Another friend comes up and we realize he has a tenuous connection to Martha. He can get us in. I explain what the psychic said and he replies “Aren’t you an atheist? Don’t you NOT believe in these sorts of things?” Yah, but I don’t want to explain this to the others and anyway I want to see Martha’s house. We all have decided it must be the most tasteful place ever.

He gets us inside and indeed there are some pretty parts but … it’s not especially gorgeous. Where are the cute knickknacks? The placed-just-so floor coverings? Even matching pillows? Well, it turns out that Martha has two cats — a shy white cat and a beautiful, friendly calico. If she were to actually use those things in her house the cats would destroy them. We all nod knowingly.

After a very nice visit made all the more delightful by the lovely calico, Martha invites us to eat in the restaurant for free. We accept. Even starting with the appetizers, the dishes are exactly what you’d expect from Martha: exotic cheese (yuck, I thought), fresh fruit with tasty nuts, stuffed this and that, wonderful! And as I look at the daily menu, I see the guy I was expecting. Tonight Martha’s Restaurant has a special musical guest — none other than the sexy and talented Chris Isaak!

Well, not exactly someone who ever wrote or called when I was a kid or adult. But, I thought, close enough!

Strange Matches

Well, I could do a Star Wars piece, but seeing that everyone else has…

[Fun movie, mostly bad characterization, boy can Yoda kick ass! I want a bouncing Yoda but that phrase is turning up nothing on Google.]

But, instead, I’ll talk about clothing because this has been taking much of my time lately. Buying clothing, laundry, dry cleaning, picking clothing. Etc. But then I have to figure out what goes with what. Thus, most of my wardrobe is black. And things that go with black. And sometimes even navy, which does not go with black, and this requires more thought and different shoes…

You don’t want to hear about this either.

You want to hear about how cat meows may have evolved to better manipulate humans.

Or maybe you want a legal weblog, like lawmeme. I’ve got more where that one came from.

No wait, you want to know the proper way to use a light saber!

So Star Wars wins. Next time, a semiotic analysis of Padme’s and Anakin’s courtly yet oh so doomed love (yah, right).

Thanks for the SW link, Jeff B.!

Old Stuff

I think PBS could introduce children to more geek words if it would only expand its programming. Like, say, “Cthulhu Tales.”

“I wish, I wish, with all my might, to raise the elder gods and smite! smite! smite!”
Or not.

Two places which could get a lot of my money:


2. Nikaku

Darn that Internet for providing me with too many tempting things to buy. alone is bad enough, but do small independents have to taunt me constantly? It’s a conspiracy, I tell ya…..


My friend Steve has a blog. I like today’s entry but I don’t have the heart to tell him Katie picked up the word from Dragon Tales, thus lowering the geek quotient a bit.

(Oh wait, Steve reads this sometimes. Hi Steve!)

Random Torture

Particulate clouds of nicotated carcinogens which act like small yet rusty needles poking into my retinas.

Poke. Poke. Poke.

Me, I have the entire Buffy the Vampire Slayer, the Musical playing twenty four hours a day.

“BUNNIES!!!!! Or maybe midgets….”

Oh, and from last month, Friends of Lulu has a brand-new (well, at least completely renovated) site. Check it out

Still not in MT….
(I’ve gotten as far as printing the instructions and putting them down someplace.)

Hi anyone who’s reading this! I know there’s at least one of you. :-)

Links from Law Lib

Some links to help with legislative history research:

1. LLSDC Legislative Source Book: State Legislatures, State Laws and State Regulations
2. State Legislative History Research Guides

Yay Law-Lib!

Slow Interface

Well, I was going to blog today about the anti-mac creationist guy and whether his site was a hoax or not and the Republican candidate who is proposing a 1 % Sci Fi Tax to pay for an improved space program [via Boing Boing — I like this idea but hate the rest of his platform — got a womb? No? Stay out of mine!] and explain why I hate shopping for clothes (something do to w/ no one ever has my size and who thinks all petite women want sundresses with huge flowers on them because I certainly do not!) but Blogger doesn’t want to work today (or pretty much any day) so forget it.

Upgrading to MT soon (I hope). No more no blogging excuses.\

More Nothing

Moving servers so I can made this blog more modern maybe.


Still nothing to see here, sorry.

April Fo— oh, am I too late?

Some amusing jokes yesterday. Some could not be true. Some I wanted to be true. Some were just absurd.
