American Science and Surplus

American Science and Surplus. I love this site. I used to get the catalog and buy all kinds of goofy science gadgets. Now I can order them online.

Tom Greene / Drew Barrymore divorce

Okay, check out the divorce papers of Tom Greene and Drew Barrymore, and compare what Tom claims are his intellectual property rights versus the intellectual property Drew owns. Hmmm. I think in this divorce, Drew must get to keep the talent. The trouble is that Tom is claiming intellectual ownership of “The Subway Monkey Hour.”

Karl and Maggie

Karl and Maggie (who just got married the other day) are moving to Green Bay tomorrow. 🙁 I stopped by their house at lunch to say goodbye, and also to get a couple of cases of beer they had in the fridge, and Karl’s complete beer brewing kit. So I have everything I need to

This weekend was BUSY

This weekend was BUSY. Friday night was girls game night, Saturday night was the Mutual Friends AutumnFest, and Sunday Deb helped me build a cellar door. DEB RULES, by the way. She kicked ass on the door. I’ll have photos of the work and the door up soon. I have to do some finishing work;

Girls Kissing

No, I didn’t open this link at work. I just copied it to paste here and look at later. So don’t blame me if it opens twelve pop-up windows. (2014 update: this is one of the few links from back in 2002 that’s still alive and well and didn’t need to be update. Of course;

house plans

I’m going to finish working on my living room, and open up the back door for entry and exit. Then I’m going to close off the extra entry doors and make them back into windows. Hopefully I’ll have all this done by spring, because at that point I’m going to put the house on the

Talbott Street Bar

So you may be aware that I live right nearby the new Talbott Street Bar. Because of the noise and traffic there, I didn’t get much sleep last night, and I have so much work to do in the yard today.

cockeyed.com

I’ve said it before, but it bears repeating: I really like Rob, from cockeyed.com. He has some great pranks, like this one, where he got a bunch of old trophies from a friend, and gave them away to people on the street. That’s just fun.

DC Sniper – Terrorism?

Interesting. I sort-of half wondered myself why no one was using the word “terrorism” in connection to the D.C. area sniper shootings. Apparently, I’m no the only one thinking along those lines. I guess according to this other article, “authorities” are afraid it would cause a panic.

Spike, the doggie host

Pepper came over to see Spike last night. Spike was quite the host. First he humped Pepper (I’ve never seen him do that before!) and then he peed on the carpet. Twice. Which makes him almost as good a host as I am. 🙂 I love my dog. I think I should send Mark Ryden

Invisible libraries, fake band names, and gardens of forking paths

Funny and/or cool websites I’ve noticed lately: Garden of Forking Paths Welcome to the Garden of Forking Paths, one of the most intriguing areas of the Libyrinth of Allexamina. Here you will find access to the garden planted by J.L. Borges, the Argentine writer, poet and philosopher. Although I tend the garden as well as

Onion: Newly Out Gay Man

I could make a big fat list of guys I know who are just like this…. Newly Out Gay Man Overdoing It PENSACOLA, FL—Calling his flamboyant air and effeminate mannerisms “a bit forced,” friends of recently out-of-the-closet homosexual Mark Glynn, 23, say he’s overdoing it. “When Mark first told us he was gay, everybody was

My friend Karl got married

My friend Karl got married on Friday to Maggie (also a friend) and they had a fun reception at Oak Hill. I had a fun week with Spike. I’m at work right now, and I miss him. I can’t wait to go home and play with him. He’s so cute.

Doggie News

Spike went to the vet today. He got his first shot, and he got flea medicine. He also got some gluecose, because he has low blood sugar, which is common for tiny doggies. That’s why they shiver even when it’s not cold. He just has to have glucose three times a day at meals. Fortunately,

Bill Clinton on Saddam Hussein and how to handle Iraq

Thank god I’m not the only one who misses Bill Clinton terribly, or the only one who thinks he was a highly-competent leader. I knew there was a good reason why I’ve always loved the British. Excerpt from Clinton’s very popular peech to the Labor Party Conference in Blackpool, England: … I am profoundly grateful

What a brilliant idea: Bush / Saddam Duel

What a brilliant idea. I can’t see a downside to this. There’s just no way we could lose. An Iraqi vice-president has proposed that Saddam Hussein and George W Bush should fight a duel to settle their differences. “Bush wants to attack the whole [of] Iraq, the army and the infrastructure,” the Iraqi vice-president said.

Americans For Victory Over Terrorism

There’s a brand-new group, headed by Bill Bennett, called [a href=”http://www.avot.org/”] American’s For Victory Over Terrorism (AVOT). They are targeting “threats” to America, both “external and internal.” Who do they classify as threats? People who don’t support GW Bush’s intentions to invade Iraq. Now, where do I sign up to get on the list of
