Hot Arab Women With Large Breasts!

Monday, December 10th, 2007

Will NOT be found anywhere on this website.
But you’d be surprised how many people seem to be ending up here as a result of googling for them.
So I thought it would be interesting to see what this post does to my hits over the next few days.
(I’m adding the “Breast-soothing” category tag, which is supposed […]

The Persistence of Being…Plus ça change….

Sunday, September 9th, 2007

I would wax poetic and quote Eliot…but the hour is too late (or early) and the connection too slow to be conducive to surf-n-search. Let this suffice then: something about returning to a place and knowing it for the first time.
No great changes to report, and yet many things are subtly altered. The ersatz eclairs […]

Day 16,832…

Friday, June 22nd, 2007

Has dawned overcast and dreary: the rainy season is truly upon us.
Just something it occurred to me to wonder about the other morning, so I just whipped together a quick little file in Mariner Calc, the program I now use instead of Excel, and came up with this answer.
16832 DI (Die Ibadaironis). You can’t get […]

Just another day…

Friday, June 15th, 2007

But with it another notch on the branch, another ring-around-the-core. (As in “If nothing else, we could cut his legs off and count the rings….”)
Nothing special, just another work-at-home Friday. Took a break in the early afton and puttered about in the yard for a while…but the ground and everything was still too wet from […]

Smart enough to stay well clear

Monday, May 7th, 2007

I caught part of a CSI episode on WOWWOW Saturday night. Original series (meaning, Las Vegas), probably the newest season or just one back. (Unlike with my other satellite channels, WOWWOW is fairly up to date.) In case you’re another fan, it’s the one where they find an undergound bunker in the desert, full of […]

A Woman With Balls

Wednesday, April 11th, 2007

I watched the first episode of a new TV series last night—new over here, at least—The Closer. I knew I was going to like it when, just a few minutes into the show, title-role character Deputy Chief Brenda Johnson (played by Kyra Sedgwick) looks another character—who has just told her she needn’t be acting like […]

Whan that Aprille…

Sunday, April 1st, 2007

Well…April is finally here!
At least on this side of the dateline. Don’t ask why I’m up at 3:09 AM…because I just might tell you.
Was busy doing other things yesterday and didn’t check by here for comments or spam, but when I tried to access the blog the first time a little while ago, I got […]

It wasn’t solidarity…

Monday, March 26th, 2007

with the ADiots—who haven’t had a post to their mailing list since the middle of February—or anything silly like that. It wasn’t that I’ve been sick or really all that busy with work or other pursuits.
No, none of these are the reasons I haven’t blogged since early in the month.
Don’t know what it was (or […]

Further Idol Thoughts

Monday, February 26th, 2007

The contestants from Birmingham, Alabama—although generally as bad as people from the other audition locales as far as their singing was concerned—nevertheless displayed one important (and nice) difference: they were extremely polite and gracious in the face of criticism—and even a bit of downright rudeness—from the judges.
Say what you will about people from the South […]

American Addle

Saturday, February 24th, 2007

This afternoon I watched the New York auditions of this year’s “American Idol”. (I think we’re about a month behind; the Birmingham auditions air for the first time in an hour, at 10:00 PM.) I kinda got hooked on the show last year when Fox Japan carried the fifth season. (As far as I know, […]

…And I Feel Fine

Saturday, February 17th, 2007

I started seeing an advert tonight on my satellite channels for an upcoming movie (mini-series?) to premier on March 11. The narrator says, in Japanese…
A nuclear war between China and the United States has devastated the Northern Hemisphere. The Southern is slowly being poisoned by radiation and the end of humanity is nigh. … A […]

Today I want…

Wednesday, February 7th, 2007

…to wear white flannel trousers.
…to roll the cuffs and not wear any socks.
…to part my hair a new way.
(One that doesn’t show the growing bald spot behind.)
…to eat a peach.
…to listen to the mermaids singing as I walk along the beach.
(I’ve heard them before, you know. And seen them playing in the surf, combing the […]

Happy 2007 - The Year of the Boar!

Monday, January 1st, 2007

When, even though I am an Ox, I still have a feeling I will come into my own….

Happy New Year!
(Or New Year’s Eve, for those of you still stuck in December 31st!)

New Year’s Eve 2006-2007…Kouhaku, again?

Sunday, December 31st, 2006

Well, this isn’t exactly how I wanted or expected to be spending New Year’s Eve…but then again, why should tonight be greatly different from any other night of this past year.
So, I’m sitting here cross-legged on the ese-tatami mats in the dinning area near the kitchen (and under the heater), the laptop humming away in […]

We’re all alone

Sunday, December 10th, 2006

No, this is not another ET post!
I’ve been surfing the Web this morning and came across a link to this YouTube video in this post by HillCountryGal.

Even though I’ve loved this song since I first heard it in high school nearly thirty years ago, I never took the time to look into the details. I […]
