Smited!

Wednesday, March 30th, 2005

Yeah, I know that technically it’s either “smote” or “smitten” but “smited” sounds much more recent than “smote” (I was smited just now, three years ago I smote my feral minion) and “smitten” just makes me giggle. I mean, take the following sentences: “God smote me for singing the lamby joe song” versus “I was smitten by God for singing the lamby joe song”. The first one sounds much more serious and old testament. I can see God frowning his cranky God frown and saying, “OK, I’ve heard about enough of that lamby joe song from boo. One lightning bolt, coming up!” while the other one sounds more like I’m singing an ode of devotion and lamby joe goodness to the almighty. OK that’s just weird to type much less contemplate. Moving on!

Chu-Chu-Chu, Chu-Chu, Chu, Chu-Chu-Chu!

Monday, March 28th, 2005

I was introduced to a new game this Sunday, Katamari Damacy, in which a bunch of ducks (of two different flavors even) sing the above line. It’s the funniest computer game I’ve seen in a while: The King of All The Universe goes on a bender and breaks the moon and stars, about which people are understandably upset, and tells you, the Prince of All The Universe, to go gather enough stuff with your rolling sticky marble (Katamari – and yes, you can get to the point where you are rolling up giant octopuses) so he can remake the stars. Of course, you (being only the Prince of All The Universe) are only 2cm tall so you have to start little. Pins, pieces of candy, thimbles, needles, ants the like stick to your rolling sticky marble until its big enough to pick up oranges, mushrooms, frogs, small flowers and mice. Eventually you wind up picking up buildings, bridges, barges, Godzilla and islands. Crazy! You can even pick up people (and they make the BEST noises when you roll them up).

The Friday “Whoops!” Post

Friday, March 25th, 2005

Whoops that, forgot to post yesterday, which is very odd because I was all The Rebel (rarh!) and…ummmm, well feeling very “That’s nice but I’m supposed to care about this why?” It’s the perfect attitude for being in a posting mood but it didn’t happen. Instead I continued being a rebel (rarh) and wore my “Devil may care” attitude quite well (and most sportily too if I may say so) all day.

The Tuesday Before

Tuesday, March 22nd, 2005

I passed a church’s banner on the way to lunch that happily proclaimed all the festivities that would be going on this week. There are a lot of high holy days in the Christian church all coming up in a row cumulating with Easter. Which is this Sunday. Guh! How did that happen? Where did the time go? Yikes!

Singing the St. Patty’s Day Greens

Thursday, March 17th, 2005

Not sure what genera of music that would be, probably something up beat and snazzy…like a jig or a reel. Anyway, I’ve arbitrarily decided that today everyone should be singing the greens. It’s a lot better than drinking green beer and doesn’t surprise you nearly as much when you hit the john later on.

The Aforethreatened Tuesday Pictoblog!

Tuesday, March 15th, 2005

Sadly, today’s blog is brought to you by the letter CAT and the number CRAFTY. I have a ton of pics, they are just all of the cats or my fun new craftsy crap and really, both are kind of boring. However, usually I don’t even post on a Tuesday so feel free to treat today like any other booless Tuesday if cats and crap aren’t your thing.

The Light At The End Of The Sick

Monday, March 14th, 2005

Alllllrighty! I think I’m on the up side of sick and it feels GREAT! Whoooo! Friday I was the walking dead (and no update. The dead can’t type) which prompted me to bundle directly off to bed after work. Man, a work day can beat the snot out of a person. Literally!

Oh-ee-oh, Oooooh, My Nose

Wednesday, March 9th, 2005

I made it to work today and even in fine (yet drugged – Mmmmm Robitussin) spirits for maybe the first fifteen minutes of work. OK, not really…I was good for about three maybe four hours before things started to go tweeee. I had a feeling that being at work for a full day, versus lounging around in bed all yesterday, was going to be a teeth gritting experience and lo! It was one long 9 hour day (lunch hour). The Plague is morphing into a nice head cold complete with lots of goo and the occasional head splitting, furniture moving sneeze. You gotta respect a body that shifts gears from trying to expel a lung via violent coughing to trying to expel a lung by ninja sneezing. Do you know how deadly 90 mile per hour bits of lung can be?

I, Robitussin

Uuuuugh, the plague! The Plague! Ahhh, my delicate spleen. So yeah, Saturday night (or more accurately, some the hell time in the middle of the wee hours of technically Sunday, you bastard plague) I had a coughing fit which I would have sworn on some righteous swearing materials was caused by inhaling a bit of phlegm down the wrong tube. Much to my surprise, it was the onset of the spring time plague. How does that happen? I can pinpoint to the exact time (or could have if I had looked at the clock at oh-dark-hundred when I nearly expelled a lung) the transition between happily almost sleeping and sick. BAH!
