Seen recently:

  • A motorcyclist at a stoplight wearing a helmet that featured a full set of devil-style goat horns, top and bottom of the helmet. He was listening to death metal.
  • Yet another sighting of the “Snacks – EVERYBODY LOVES THEM” truck
  • Someone on craigslist.org wanting a crock pot for their home birth. (?!). Thanks .
  • A documentary called “One September Day” about the Munich 1972 Olympics terror disaster. Really a must see for anyone interested in history. Lots of shockers; I wonder what we’ll know in 30 years about the more recent September?
  • A brochure from the Post Office titled “Bombs by Mail” which looks like an ad for ordering them.

That should do it for today. I still want an iBook but I shouldn’t, I shouldn’t, I shouldn’t spend the money, money, money. Mustn’t. Really.

    1. Scary icon! I like!
      Re: iBooks. I have been Jonesing for anything that runs OS X for a long while now–specifically those desk-lamp iMacs. Unfortunately, savings (expecting the company I work for to be dead in a few months), teeth, and paying off credit card usage during unemployment beat out that urge.

      1. Sigh. I remember having teeth trouble a few years ago… hj took a job at a startup with a nice signing bonus, though, which we used to pay off my bridge, and get me an old iMac way back when. They did the work for 2x as much money as they quoted, which I berated them over, and we actually got money BACK FROM THE DENTIST! Woo! Which really didn’t make anything easier, but it was satisfying.
        I hope your mouth feels better soon. =/
        Anyway, yeah, the new iMacs rule. I love mine. I don’t know how I ever lived without a flatscreen before. =)

  1. Yes !

    Well, it’s the god-honest truth, n’est-ce pas ?
    Re: iBook: You know you want it. Join us.

  2. A helpful tip.
    Never read the words crock pot home birth together in a single sentence prior to breakfast. My bowl Special K Red Berries looks a little different to me just now.
