Online threads in the real world

Dreams last night included a stone-and-brick walkway curving through a basement, and when I found the walkway I found it had weeds along it (despite being inside) and was, in fact, laid out like an online thread: a new response on each stone or brick. The thread was discussing common grammar mistakes, with lessons left by a couple of people I recognized (I saw shadesong and theferrett's names).

kradical showed up in person, too, talking about his singing cameo in Armageddon (yes, singing cameo in Armageddon, a phrase NEVER WRITTEN BEFORE NOW*) and talking about his new tie-in novel for the show Saving Grace. Um, what? (Adding to the "um, what?" was that the book had a HUGE printing error in it: the text at an angle and mostly running off of the page so that it was almost unreadable.)

Also, I drove Spike Lee through a version of my neighborhood that had a wide dirt road.

Did I eat dinner too late last night or something???

* Detailed further! Keith showed a clip, and he was one of the astronauts on the shuttle at the beginning that gets hit by the little meteors, and he somehow runs into the lower levels of the shuttle for protection (never mind that the shuttles have ONE lower level -- and oh, that YOU CAN'T RUN in zero-gravity, but it's not as if Armageddon matches up with reality) while a song he sang plays, and the song began with the lyrics "If I was a motherfucking imbecile" sung in a low, flat voice not at all like Keith's real voice. Again, um, what?

  • No boldly going today, sorry

    Today, I let myself do almost nothing. I hadn't planned to do almost nothing at first, but I didn't really plan much. And one thing fell through due…

    It took me a few days of resting through the current heat wave to go Wait...I have a fan. A fan. A small fan loaned to me by one of the housemates…

  • A title.

    July has been a long month. Long for me, very long for other members of my family. I spent a week of it in Virginia. I spent a week of it laid up…
