Morning Glory Report

Tuesday, July 31st, 2007

Two blooms this morning, pix later.
Ain’t I got fun!
(May have also found the first leaf shoot from those amaryllis bulbs I brought home from uni. And the stems of the old potatoes from last year—that had become The Beasts of Many Eyes in their boxes—which I put into the ground last weekend have begun to […]

Hill’s got tits!

Tuesday, July 31st, 2007

No shit.
Like, duh? I mean, hello…she is a woman, and I’ve never heard the phrase “double mastectomy” used in reference to her, and since the things usually tend to travel in pairs (with a nod there to Woody Allen), it only stands to reason that Hillary Clinton has breasts and therefore the potential for…oh my […]

Asagao 2007

Monday, July 30th, 2007

Yeah! Had my first morning glory bloom this morning:

Tons more to come. And the suckers just keep on growing. (Had to add extensions upwards to the framework on Saturday.) I just wish the weather were nicer.
It seems the rainy season is not yet over. (It’s overcast and the wind is brrrrrisk this morning.) But despite […]

Did Jesus’ shit stink?

Saturday, July 21st, 2007

What about Muhammed’s? Or Buddha’s?
Just something that occurred to me yesterday morning while listening to CNN report on the religious right attempts to make the U.S. a “Christian” nation.
This morning they were on about the Obama/Romney “sex ed in kindergarten” blow. Seems Romney is being a bit dishonest in the whole thing…but what can you […]

And in the Extreme WTF Category…

Tuesday, July 17th, 2007

Two movie-related items I saw this evening on the tube (actually, both within the last hour or so) have left me reeling (as it were).
The first was a banner message flashed across the screen in red near the end of an interview with the guy who played the king of Sparta in “300″. I was […]

A Message to U.S. Hindus:

Friday, July 13th, 2007

Just a reminder from the “Good Book” of the “nice” people among whom you have chosen to dwell:
Give not that which is holy unto the dogs,
neither cast ye your pearls before swine,
lest they trample them under their feet,
and turn again and rend you.
I just saw on CNNj a quick clip about the heckling of the […]

…who obviously has too much time on his hands.
First, something so wrong it borders on right:

Next, an original Shakira video:

Time to crawl…

The Myth of the Japanese Gardener

Monday, July 9th, 2007

I’d really like to know where the Western (or at least North American) stereotype of the Japanese gardener came from. Because it sure as shit (for fertilizer) didn’t have anything to do with the way the art of horticulture is conducted in this country these days.
Arrived at uni today to find idiots cutting down trees […]

Eric, or Jakob, or Tanya, or whatever your name really is, just go away already, OK?
You’re wasting your time trying to post your comment spam here. Go find an unmonitored blog somewhere else.
And the new domain you’re wanting to link to isn’t amusing in the least.
New f*ckhead, same old tricks. Yawn!
