Me 1

Boring, but necessary update information!*

Stuff's been, like, happening and stuff:

  • I managed to work, while getting better, for two full days. My checkbook will thank me. Thursday was kind of a slog, as my energy level fluctuated that day, but I was more consistently "on" during Friday.

  • Sore throat lingered into last night (still slightly sore now, in fact). At the worst of it I thought I'd start sounding like Miguel Ferrer.

  • The chunk of tree is finally gone! It got removed either Thursday or Friday -- one of the days I worked -- and I finally noticed this morning. (Thursday and Friday I hadn't been home when it was light.) I continue to be happy that managed to fall in the least damaging way possible. Whoa.

  • I've managed to follow Lost (now early into Season 2) even during this Week Of Sick. Question! Is it better or worse to watch Lost when ill?

    What happens next? I'll do what's next, then try to post about it!

    * Phrasing inspired by the ordering forms in the back of the cheap-o Pioneer Publishing books I occasionally bought in the early 90s. I got Mark A. Altman's Twin Peaks companion book and Ed Gross's L.A. Law companion book. Terrible layouts and copy-editing but, sometimes, worthy content, especailly the Twin Peaks book.

    One good thing about The Beatles breaking up when they did

    Had the band stayed together, the chances would have increased evermore that, one day, the whole band or one member would try to perform "Revolution 9" live. And that just would've been wrong. Or maybe even sad and mind-crushing.

    But in our world, that song only exists in one, complete, mind-altering form.

    Someone who, admittedly, sometimes says to himself "Number 9...Number 9...Number 9..."

    is bringing me to my knees
    is no surprise
    is what I need

    This is how you do it. (Writing prompts!)

    Earlier this week, I asked for writing prompts. idiomagic said
    You should write about me, of course. There could be no worthier topic. ;)
    Oh yes, idiomagic, you asked nicely. Write about you I shall:

    idiomagic is impressive. She‘s written song lyrics that have been sung and recorded. She survived living in New Orleans when the levees failed (and wrote about it in hurricanegrrl). She now lives in Austin. She's freaking hilarious. She's also deeply committed: she's followed in-depth the protests in Iran (protests that are still happening, understand) over its election.

    In further news, idiomagic knows how to handle blades. She could probably kill you while naked. She could likely make you enjoy this. She hasn’t minded me and others shamelessly flirting with her (and she’s worth flirting with, trust me). She's impressed at least one rock star in person, meaning I can think of one story of her experiencing The Rock-And-Roll Lifestyle, but that's her story to tell, not mine. And there are likely many other such stories.

    I'm enjoying getting to know you, idiomagic.

    You can still tell me what to write about!

    This is also how you do it (the next writing prompt!)

    Also in my “hey! Suggest writing ideas to me” entry, Setsuled said
    Shaved nymphomaniac crackhead groundhogs.
    Forgotten in the late-80s vogue of animal superheroes, exemplified by the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles and causing the creation of such forgotten teams as Adolescent Radioactive Black Belt Hamsters, Cold Blooded Chameleon Commandos, Pre-Teen Dirty-Gene Kung-Fu Kangaroos, and Adult Thermonuclear Samurai Elephants (published in the re-named one-shot Power Pachyderms), were the animated stars of TV’s briefly-lived Shaved Nymphomaniac Crackhead Groundhogs. Understandably. But their theme song remains:

    [spoken] They’re buzzed! No fuzz! And that’s because they’re:
    [brief musical intro]
    Shaved! Nymphomaniac! Crackhead! Groundhogs!
    Get it on! What drugs we’re on! We’re
    Shaved! Nymphomaniac! Crackhead! Groundhogs!
    That’s not our shadow, it’s vomit! Heigh-ho!
    Shaved! Nymphomaniac! Crackhead! Groundhogs!
    Animal tests went wrong! Now we fight and sing songs!
    Shaved! Nymphomaniac! Crackhead! Groundhogs!
    Crazy! Love! From burrows to above! We're
    Shaved! Nymphomaniac! Crackhead! Groundhogs!

    …Kids! The Shaved Nymphomaniac Crackhead Groundhogs want to tell you, “Drugs Are Bad News!” And Knowing…Is Good.

    (Audio version here!)

    I considered the line “And we’re hung like horses!,” but, um…no. I also even considered having them sing “We’re coming to your town! We’ll help you party down!”
