If the Editor Only Realized....

From the Houston Chronicle:

Boy George will be picking up street trash for five days


Another one for the oddly titled dept.:

I this from ChadFox while reading his site a couple of moments ago and my Inner Beavis and Butthead gotta chuckle outta it. It's of the boyfriend of a friend of ChadFox's while they were visiting Santa Fe.

Apparently, it DOES have a meaning in the art of glass blowing. According to Wikipedia's page on glassblowing, it's "The second [furnace] is called the "Glory Hole," and is used to reheat a piece in between steps of working with it."

Now That I Have the Chance...

Between monsoons the past few days and Crumb-cast being down last night for 4 hours due to maintanance work, I hadn't had the chance to post.

My birthday was quiet, which is what I wanted. I have troubles dealing with me being the age I am...I just go the Jack Benny route and claim to be 39....again. I think I'll pull a "Dad" in 4 years tho and go to Athens where I'll send my 50th (GAWD! I don't believe I typed that number) with the covers pulled up over my head the whole day. (My family and I were there when daddums turned that age and he was NOT amuzed with it; hence, his day in bed). If anyone wants to join me in Athens at the time, let me know. My mother laughs when I moan and whine about my age.

Anyway, a friend and I went out to my fave Mexican restaurant (Rosa's) and pigged out. Even took home more food for future dindins.

I got my new cellphone and have it basically set up now. It's been fun pplaying with it and seeing what it can do that my previous phone didn't but I still miss the simplicity of my now-old phone, monochromatic screen and all. I still need to find a name for it.

Alas, it seems I need to sign up for broadband for it in order to upload any pix I take to my computer. At least that's what the Verizon Wireless customer service rep told me this evening. I can't just upload it to my hard drive, I have to do it via their internet connection, and upload it to (or whatever the website is) even with a usb cable which I have. Anyone out there know if there's a way I can just u/l it to my hard drive without internet connection for the phone?

Also in the news, I got a letter from the Customs people (and part of the Homeland Security dept) that my order of theophylline has been confiscated since it might be a BAD batch! OOH! Like Canada is some Third World Country with hideous, make-shift drug labs! (I order my perscriptions via Canada since it's cheaper and I need the money more than the pharmaceutical companies and Walgreens do) Well, screw 'em! Two lousy bottles of Uniphyl and I can't have it? (And it was from a perscription from my doc!) Well, byte me! Anyway, I dealt with it. Neener! Neener!

Whose permission would you need to get married to the person you love?

This was passed along to me by a friend over on AOL and thought it was well done!

OMG! I Had NO Idea!

While looking up my primary doctor's phone number online, I discovered he was on the Canadian Olympic Wrestling Team in Seoul, South Korea in 1988 where he was the overall 8th ranked as well as being the Bronze medalist in the Canada Cup in 1989 and an All American while going to Arizona State University!

Boy Toy

Meet my new baby! That's a silver Motorola RAZR V3m. I just purchased it not 3 minutes ago. My parents said that they'll buy me something I wanted for my birthday (which is this coming Wednesday July wish list is on the right-hand column there, at the bottom, if yer so inclined to buy me things and help me ease the pain of inching another year closer to...well...old age. I always love to get prezzies!) and it was a new cell phone.

My current one, a Motorola StarTac, is 11 years old and it was about time I finally got into the 21st Century where cell phones were concerned. My inner brat has been wanting to get one with picture-taking capability and so, it has it.

So, I'm looking forward to it being delivered.

OOH! OOH! Unaired Buffy Pilot Episode!

Sparky came upon this and I'm SO glad he did! I had no idea it existed and am glad they replaced Riff Regan with Alyson Hannigan Enjoy!

There's a description of the episode here on Wikipedia.

In Which Mary Poppins Came to a Tragically Sticky End

LOL! Too Funny! That Poppins broad exterminated by a Dalek!

I came upon this while on just now. It's one of Groc's pix. He's got many great shots.

I Want This Car!

It's a 1931 Dietrich Town Car. Luckily, it belongs to The Franklin Automobile Museum located right here in beautiful midtown TooStoned. At least I can go over there and drool over it.

The Lost Mac Ads

Saw one of the ads last night on "Best Week Ever" but Screenhead links to BWE's site for series of ads they did. Really funny.

(And speaking of those Mac ads....I still think Justin Long is a cutie!)

OMG! Dolly Parton on PeeWee! Bonzai At the End! Snakes On a Plane!

Dunno how I missed this one! According to the person who posted it, it was in 1987. It includes a duet of "Hey Goodlookin'". And giving Parton's hair, she should've done a Wig-Off Smackdown with Cher.


OOH! OOH! A wonderful person posted the ending song of "Buckaroo Bonzai"! YIPPIESKIPPY!


Ah, shit! Just one more. Found over on Nala's site. My fave, of course, is Beeker.

Karma? Maybe!

Homer's post today reminded me of the news -- the head of The Center for Arizona Policy, Lynn Stanley, was killed in a car crash early Monday morning.

The Center for Arizona Policy is an anti-gay, conservative Christian organization based in Scottsdale, AZ that put together a petition that they'll hand in tomorrow, that tries to put an amendment against same-sex marriage in the state of Arizona. They're big fans of Focus On the Family and Jsmes Dobson. Take it from there.

This is one of those times where I find it very difficult to find any sympathy or sorrow.

Prepare to O.D. on Cuteness!

I found this video, via Uffish Chris, over on CityRag, that was WAY too cute to pass up! As they described it there: "Check out this funny and heartmelting film of like 20 puppies trying to figure out what a cat is, and terrified of it's every movement.":
