This summer I...

...went to my very first concert (They Might Be Giants, at GenCon)...

Awesome!!! Love them!

Istanbul (Not Constantinople) is the most played song on my ITunes.

Both Pea Bear's and Tiny T-Rex's eyes light up when that first horn section starts fading in.

Funny thing is, I discovered them trying to find the theme song for Malcolm In The Middle.

I am jealous now. >.>

She was one of my first aliases.

I was surprised no one else had been doing it before me.

Or since.

As for why my deity aliases are always in bold, you can thank The Simpsons for that, with god always speaking in a loud booming voice.

It was one of the first things I thought to do but I knew from lurking that some god aliases already existed including Pharasma xD

Everyone already knows I'm old.

We had to make the decision as to whether to buy Flood on cassette or CD, because our car only had a cassette player.

Yeah.

I still remember how excited I was when 'Hurrah For Mafeking' by Queen Victoria's Mahogany Rush came out on wax cylinder.

Piffle! Modern terflukery, I say!

I recall waiting in line outside Notre Dame for three days back in 1293, just to hear Petrus de Cruce drop some hot polyphony. Now that was music.

I don't even know what a Wax cylinder is xD

Maybe he meant waxed cylinder (or as it's commonly referred to in Europe "futball").

Or, as the Native Americans called it, "maize".

It's amazing what a Stickbot (with app), some play doh, and one episode of Robot Chicken will do for a thirteen year old's creativity.

I highly recommend them.

Both kids love them.

Like one of those new-fangled shellac gramophone discs, except you can carry it around under your top hat, up your nose, or in your muff.

I can't keep up with all the newfangled technology these younguns are fooling around with these days.

Well back down to the library to me to find out what a "gramophone" is.

I learned that when I wear my Pearl Jam Alive Tour shirt, people can't resist telling me how much they love Pearl Jam.

I'm sure my resemblance to Eddie Vedder has nothing to do with it.

A friend of mine introduced that song to me after I started dating his ex girlfriend. :-)

I've also been compared to Brad Pitt in Legends of the Fall, Jesus Christ (Superstar), Chris Cornell, Antonio Banderas, Weird Al, and Norwood Fisher (from Fishbone).

I also get "Do you know Ted, you like someone I know!" or variations thereof all the time.

Oooh, speaking of bad driving, NobodysWife got the whole gamut yesterday:

  • At the Bay Bridge toll plaza, two cars had the classic "bumper bump", so they of course had to stop RIGHT THERE and have it out. It has become such an epidemic of stupidity that every 200 yards along the entire 20-mile corridor is a sign that says, "No one injured? Pull to the side!"
    But nah, blocking a lane of the Bay Bridge during rush hour is just what some people DO
  • On the way to Pacifica, a police officer had pulled someone over IN THE OPPOSITE DIRECTION. Didn't matter. Everyone had to slow down from the 65 speed limit to 35-40 to gape in awe at this miraculous occurrence
  • On the way home from Pacifica, a car stalled out. Instead of anyone bothering to offer to help them push their car out of the road, everyone minded their own business, reducing the traffic to a single lane until an officer could show up.

  • So I'll excuse the third one -- not everyone wants to get involved, and not everyone is in the physical shape to push a car out of the road. But the first two? NobodysWife and I agree they all deserve $1000 fines and public spankings.

    You'd think we here in Arkansas don't have traffic jams, but we do. The 1-40 corridor going into Little Rock (capitol city, for those who don't know, as well as the largest) in the mornings can take over an hour for what would normally be a 20 minute trip. One morning when I was still able to work I was stuck in traffic 2 hours while people got out, gawked, talked, photographed, and pontificated over the carcass of an immense feral hog that had been hit and killed on the road.

    For all the excitement I was hoping it was the Razorback mascot. Sadly, it was not.

    Today is my 50th Birthday. I'm not asking for anything, as I've already got the best friends I could ever find. But if anyone wants to buy me a cheap PDF as a gift, I won't say no.

    I believe so, but I use it as an abbreviation of his Avatar name, just like I use Kjel for Kjeldorn.

    I'm not worried about any previously offensive implications whether or not they do or don't exist. I'm simply curious as to their origins.

    I am in no way judging you.

    Thanks, CD. There are days where my fingers hurt from arthritis, and I want to keep the typing to a minimum.

    You're quite welcome for whatever it is I did.

    I hope your pain decreases.

    It is what it is. The days when a severe storm comes through Pittsburgh are when they hurt the worst.

    That's very literary
    I quite enjoy the feeling severe weather in ones bones trope.

    I'd like to amend my statement (I'm very drunk)

    I quite enjoy the trope of feeling the weather in ones bones. I've never actually felt the weather.

    The trope is what interests me. The old and wise becoming more connected with the natural world is interesting as the other idea that's dominante is that the old become less.

    The fact that every word has a u after the o except when befoure an e.

    You simply must travel to the midwest then.

    Not only can you feel the weather in your bones, you're also never far from a nice warm cow to keep oneself warm on those long winter nights.

    I read Fanny Trollope's guide to traveling the US but I feel I could be better informed.

    We also have booze and cheese curds, so much booze and cheese curds.

    And all you can eat beer battered fish fries, guaranteed every Friday night.

    Also booze and cheese curds.

    I would like to move in and not move out
    I'm glad that's an arrangement we have made.
    A binding arrangement.

    Wisconsin, where Cap lives, is the defacto cheese capitol of the United States. They also brew a lot of beer there. And catch a lot of fish in the North end of the state, which is up against Lake Superior.

    I would like to make it absolutely clear that I have never been in a coconut.

    I do have a coconut - someone gave it to me for Christmas a couple of years ago and I have been working out what to do with it - but, svelte as I am, it's still much too small for me.

    And I am from England. More precisely, that bit, over there.
