Miscellany

  • Hay no más.

  • According to the BBC, wool is cool. That's good news for the child bride and me -- we love wool (this was one of our rejected Christmas card pictures -- we look like a folk-music duo).

  • "World Wrestling Entertainment says it is starting random drug testing to detect illicit drugs, steroids and prescription drug abuse among its performers." Suuuuuuuurrre.

  • No. Bad. Evil. Wrong.

  • One of the oddities of the web is its ability to narrowcast. People build websites dedicated to the strangest things -- like arms.

  • It's a clear sign I'm getting older that cutesy things like this don't make me want to kill -- in fact, I like it (takes a coon's age to load, though).

  • I found a meme on someone in Denver's blog that I felt like doing. These are the first returns (and some make no sense) from Google image search for:
    - The city where I was born.
    - The city where I live now.
    - My name.
    - My grandmother's name.
    - My favorite food.
    - My favorite drink.
    - My favorite smell.

    So, um, what's your favourite food? Or shouldn't I ask..?

    Funny, Huw, I was wondering the EXACT same thing.

    Curry. It's that woman's last name, apparently.

    That JCB song is amazing! I've heard it loads but hadn't seen the vid

    Curry's my favourite food too. I shall try ordering one of those types next time.

    The only thing worse than the O'Reilly ornaments is, there are idiots who buy them. I would rather not have a tree, than to decorate it with logos.

    One of my pet peeves is when guys refer to their arms as "guns." Those people are disturbed. I picture a wife-beater, using the excuse "I was just cleaning it and it accidentally went off."

    I, too, enjoyed the video.

    I love transformers. IS this a real song?

    Isn't anyone else concerned that you typed in your grandma's name and got a picture of a bunch of men?
