early data

Feb. 9th, 2009 | 07:05 pm

so i went to WTH con for the day on Saturday--i got to see a lot of folks i hadn't seen in a while and had fun working the likely stories table with victor_von. i also had several delightful conversations with our neighbors, ursulav and kevin, including one about some youtube clips involving brent spiner. you should definitely check out this one, where brent presents patrick stewart with a difficult question. in my searching, i also came upon this clip, which absolutely cannot be missed. i was a devoted night court viewer for years, but i never made the connection until now. and suffice it to say, i will never again be able to hear the word "stampede" without laughing.

steampunk burlesque

Oct. 23rd, 2008 | 07:03 pm

not sure if i'll make it out there or not, but i'm just letting folks know that the Eccentrik music festival is in CH at Hell this weekend. i'm not familiar with any of the bands, sadly, but i'm told saturday night has some good things going on. of particular note: a steampunk burlesque show! i've also been informed that 1 day tix are $15 each.

the joys of new laminate flooring

Sep. 17th, 2008 | 10:46 pm

benefit #1: looks nice (serious improvement over nasty old brown carpet)

benefit #2: adhesive felt pads on furniture feet make it ridiculously easy to move things across the room, and they make a neat swishy noise when doing so

benefit #3: sound of cat's purring is magnified x 10

benefit #4 (as yet unverified but much anticipated): fun of watching cat wipe out while running around a corner

if "beginneth" be a word

Aug. 11th, 2008 | 10:41 pm

man, if i didn't think patrick stewart was fabulous already, this would convince me.

as a side note, i miss the corny old 1970s sesame street. ah, what the hell. here's a little something extra. :-)

here comes glamour

Jul. 2nd, 2008 | 09:55 pm

so i hesitate slightly in posting this, lest someone think that i would actually do this to my cat. anyone who has met clive will know that he is not a fierce creature, and would probably tolerate most anything by lapsing into a catatonic state (no pun intended) if running away and hiding was not an option. still, i would not dream of violating his dignity with one of these.

although i do think he would look striking in blue.
