Happy Towel Day

i remember where i was when i read that Douglas Adams was no longer operating on this planet. i was in Edinburgh, Scotland at the Castle Rock Hostel, reading some tabloid. seems the OG hitchhiker finally caught a ride to elsewhere. hopefully it was not a passing Vogon ship that picked him up.

so in honor of his brilliance, raise a towel.

A tribute to Douglas Adams (1952-2001)


after 30 years of searching…

…i have found a religion that i can join. turns out the standards for admittance are very low, but who cares!? i’m going to Pastafarian Heaven!

you can learn more about my new religion here. i will be visiting your house bright and early saturday morning to witness. put the coffee on!

a bit of scripture:

“In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was ‘ARRRRGH!'” – PIRATICUS 13:7

update: i really have been a member all along. i just never knew.

back when i had enough energy to party.

done done done!!!!!


this is my fist w00t. ok, now first and second. 2 are totally called for in this situation. there seems no more appropriate way to convey my feelings over the cyber-wire.

(i would make it bigger if i could, but i can’t figure out how. oops. must.upgrade.to.other.wordpress. whatever. i will not let the lack of increased font size get me down!)

i am done with school.

….well, until next semester. but for now i have completed my spring semester. the second to last semester of my college career. (unless in the unlikely event that i become a masochist and decide that i would like to torture myself with grad school.)

yes folks. she has done it. mama can be happy now and stop stressin’. mama can stop snapping at the most beautiful boy in her life, after all, he just wants to play with her. mama can give a big FUCK OFF to her misogynistic teacher. mama can stop talking about herself in the third person.

here is my final project for photo.

or not.

apparently we are having issues with picture uploads. oh well, check it out on my flickr. it’s the cyanotype purse. i will write an ode to anyone who correctly guesses what the image is and will post it. if i have already told you what it is, no fair, you don’t count, mom. (oh wait, you probably forgot already. hehe. i’m a shithead.) to give credit where credit is due, i got the idea of a little contest from my favourite food photographer/blogger, Blood Sugar. not that it is the same idea, but Graeme got me thinking.

wow. wordpress.com is really all weird tonight. it took me about 5 minutes to get the link right up there.

so, i will go an post lots more fun pictures on flickr now to give ya’ll some eye candy. now that i have the time. :*)

one more thing.  it’s memorial day weekend. act accordingly!  thank you to all the men and women who have served this country.  pass it on.


it’s that glorious time of the year where (despite my itchy eyes, runny nose, and general feeling of light-headedness) i am enthralled and amazed by nature. it’s the seedlings and new-growth. it’s the fresh air and clear skies. it’s the rising mercury (i know, they aren’t REALLY mercury anymore) and warmed soil. it’s spring baby and the country-side is in bloom. huge stalks of purple flowers line the highway to school. ponds of white wildflowers flood the pastures for grazing. and right here in my own yard, the signs of life are showing.

my gift to you

happy easter…

so much better to have stuck in the head… it’s been in there since spamalot last wednesday (which i highly recommend. although now that i know the vegas version was abridged, i must now see broadway..or london..)

remember, he’s not the messiah.  he’s a very naughty boy!

support our troops, for real

i want to KISS the person that made this. i want to print them en-mass and distribute them on cars in mall parking lots. i want to hang them from the gas pumps. i should add that the ribbons are probably made in china and the troops don’t see one cent. i also like the ribbon my brother sports on his car.


one more way the patriot act can work for you

normally i ignore the ads on the sides of my facebook page. i try not to notice the annoying little messages lingering all over the net. sure, i occasionally click a few when i am price shopping and such, but mostly the ads just serve as a way to fill up white space in the browser.

i’m not sure what made me click the ad this morning. maybe it was the ambiguity of the ad. maybe it was the fact that i just could not seem to find a good letter combo to play in my scrabulous game and needed to step away for a minute.

at least it took me to videos with Frank Caliendo. for those of you unfamiliar with him, he is a stand-up comedian who is a MASTER impersonator. i hear a lot of him on sirius satellite. his John Madden is SO FUNNY! he can do anybody too. his kasey kasem/robin had me rolling.

so enjoy this video…..
