Howdy, friendly reading person!
I'm on a bit of a hiatus right now, but only to work on other projects -- one incredibly exciting example being the newly-released kids' science book series Things That Make You Go Yuck!
If you're a science and/or silliness fan, give it a gander! See you soon!

Today’s Post Brought to You by NyQuil

Man, am I scattered today. I’m walking around in a thick green NyQuil-induced fog, so I’m feeling even more random than usual. I think what I’ll do today is just post the contextless crap that’s whizzing through my head at the moment. I’ll try to update this as the day goes along (assuming my ‘fog’ doesn’t deteriorate into a ‘coma’), so check back for more nonsense later on. Now, though — let’s rock:

  • Is it just me, or has that little ‘beauty mark’ that helped to make Jill Hennessy so sexy on Law and Order turned into a big, hairy full-blown mole now that she’s on Jordan’s Crossing?
  • Am I the only one who constantly confuses Boutros Boutros-Ghali with Ruben Boumtje Boumtje? And now that they’re both a bit past their prime, would anyone notice if they switched places with each other?
  • I have trouble eating raisins these days. Someone once bet me that I couldn’t eat raisins while thinking of naked old people. So, of course, now it’s nearly impossible for me to eat raisins without thinking of naked old people. *shudder*
  • Lately, I’ve been drinking a fair amount of Glaceau ‘vitamin water’, including their ‘rescue’ green tea. Among other things, the green tea contains ‘rose hips’ and ‘lavender’. It is impossible to look manly while drinking anything containing rose hips or lavender, much less both. Even if no one else sees the label, I know they’re there. I may have to stop drinking vitamin water. Damn.
  • I just found out that I’m the first Google hit for bovine pee trajectory. I don’t know what to say. I’m just so damned proud.
  • Okay, folks — show’s over for the day. It’s nighttime, I’ve taken another dose of the nasty green stuff, and I’m off to bye-bye land. See you folks on the other side. Nighty-night now.

  1. I wish I could think of something gross that resembled burgers and fries.

  2. wlfldy says:

    Look at it this way, you could always say you’re in touch with your feminine side with the rose hips and lavender. No man is a ‘real’ man unless he’s comfortable with his rose hips. And congrats on that whole projectory thing. You can be proud of yourself.

    I knew I was missing something fighting my head cold it was the Nyquil. I have to go out and get it so I have a better nights sleep.

  4. You know, I have never been able to eat wrinkled food. I know your pain.

  5. Elizabeth says:

    Oh you are so right about JH’s mole!!

  6. Bizzare says:

    Of course, you could try sticking your ‘vitamin water’ in an empty Bud can or something similar – a sort of ‘beercan over mind over matter’ effect may do the trick!

    Spiffing blog mate – hi from across the pond…

  7. Sychotic1 says:

    I must remember to put down my coffee before reading your blog. Both my nose and my keyboard would be happier…and drier.

  8. Chasmyn says:

    Hey, I just came here from Blog Explosion! It’s so addictive…..

    I love your funny, as always.

  9. diyosa says:

  10. julia says:

  11. Steve says:
