Whale fluke

Oh, I'd like to "enter a subject," if you know what I mean, and I think you do

Well, to quote that Gorillaz song, "Helloooooooooo... Is anyone therrrrrrrrre... Helloooooooooo..."

Almost NINE HOURS with no one on my FL posting! NINE!!!!

To quote The Man With the Golden Arm, "I need my fix. I need my fix. I need my fix. I need my fix. I need my fix. I need my fix. I need my fix. I need my fix. I need my fix."

*grooves to that Elmer Bernstein jazz-from-hell Golden Arm score, mentally at least*

Kat chat!

I had a nice phone call last night with zarhooie. Poor lady's sick. I tried sending mental waves of Vitamin C towards her, but apparently nothing fancy and, um, impossible like that was needed: just having a nice chat seemed to perk her up. But I had to stop making her laugh, because she'd also cough and that would hurt.

Hey, is "It only hurts when I laugh" a lyric from somewhere? *scurries to Google* Oh, it's the title to a Stan Freberg book! Among other things...

You'd better not be surprised that I'm this random this soon after waking up.

So.

Anyway.

The chat.

It was a half-hour well spent. Among other things, we talked about accents. She told me some words in Russian and Armenian. I asked her what Armenian sounds like with a Boston accent. She said "It would probably scare people."

Good to talk to you, ma'am.

Work will happen today, as will, after work, Star Wars: Where Science Meets Imagination. I have a ticket waiting for me at OMSI Will-Call. My camera and film are on my desk, waiting as well.

Observations What Are Random

Li'l things noted:

* The newer TriMet buses now have automated voices announcing the bus number and bus line, for benefit of people waiting to board. When the bus is Drop-Off Only (like some of the morning wave of buses up to OHSU, where far more people are heading up to the hospital than down away from it), the message is "Drop Off Only. Sorry. No Boarding." I kind of like that an inanimate object is saying "Sorry."

* A local mattress sale commercial on the radio is mentioning "2000 year mattresses." This makes me chuckle. "Clearly this skeleton of a Roman is resting on a comfortable 2000-year mattress!"

* zarhooie has made a request that I finally get a userpic, damnit. I'll try to do that soon. This is a reminder to myself, as well as to someone who might be able to help me who shall go nameless, because I don't want to pressure [gender deleted so as not to signal who it is]. I need visuals; I know. They will happen.

* Good way to start the workday: I turned on my work radio and put on my headphones and got to hear "Sowing the Seeds of Love" by Tears For Fears. Again, I say: Good way to start the workday.
