Marie Antoninette

QI informed me I could buy milk cups that resembled Marie Antoniette's breasts.
I did give a moment's pause as I considering finding a pair. (Of course a pair what poor sucker would buy a solo Marie Antoniette boob cup?)
Yet also struck me as one awesome reclining chair and unfurnished apartment away from being that guy.
And if you don't know that guy some of your friends do... or you maybe him.

Champagne II

Ohh Mental Floss.
Why are you teaching me so much about Champagne?
Like why there seems to be so much in the US but not so much in the rest of the world.

The United States never ratified the Treaty of Versailles—not because of the champagne clause, but because the Republican-controlled Congress didn’t want to see the formation of a League of Nations. And so, in America, it is perfectly legal to call your sparkling wine “champagne.” In fact, you can call your gym shoes champagne, if you’d like. (What better way to exercise your freedom of speech!)

Yep learning more about Champagne then I thought I might need to.

Oddly enough getting tricked by oatmeal raisin cookies fills me with excitement when things taste different than I expect.

But I'm also quite odd.

Interesting to read about why Champagne is used to christen ships.
But what get me is this

If ever you find yourself stuck christening a ship with a bottle that can take a beating, P&O (the British shipping and logistics company) chairman Sir John Parker, quoted in the same piece, suggests scoring the bottle with a glass cutter to to weaken it.

The more you know and what not.

Dance Break

Time to learn some of these dances


I've got a new compliment to try out...

There's the right way, the wrong way, and the Max Power way.
Isn't that the wrong way?
But faster!

Why wake up early

Good Bye Yellow Brick Road

...Why did the variety show genre end?

Jiggly Butt

Nothing wrong with a "Jiggly Butt".
Especially if you happen to be Sir Mix-a-lot.

Tech Support

I remember when the Quills got a NES.
Excitement raced through Mira Mar each of us hoping to have a crack at Ryan's new toy.
Even this odd ice cream social thing eventually moved to us playing Wizards and Warriors while the adults... honestly I have no idea what they did.
Like all NESes it started to have problems.
I don't recall knowing who I heard blowing on the cart from but it didn't always work.
When it did there was redemption for our effort.
...there was also a trick involving a quarter, turning it on and then putting the cart in, or an odd putting the whole thing upside down.
It was more rituals to make the thing, perhaps an odd bit of magical thinking in the early 90s but when it worked it was awesome.

Yet this skills occurs even now.
A bit ago I asked to check some lighting dimmer packs.
My instructions were: "Turn it off, remove it from the rack, blow on it like a Nintendo game, put it back in, then turn it on."

During Tibetan Fest at Seattle Center I wandered over to the Armory for lunch.
I spent a few minutes watching a group of monks begin a mandala.
I meant to go back each day and see how it grew.
Unfortunately I didn't because of time, or scheduling or something else.
I missed out.


Been working a fair number of weddings lately.
Of all the songs picked for dances I wonder why this one hasn't been.
Missed opportunities.

Cats and Water

It's delightful to know my cat isn't the only one that attempts this feat.
But it's still quite annoying.
Come no kitty I don't want to share water with you.

Scissor Lift Ballet

Years ago my friend Geli was operating a scissor lift.
There was one set piece, a small angled piece about 2 feet high, sitting nearly against the backwall.
She hit.
Despite nothing on the stage but that one piece.
Good times.

Focus Tape

This was a big hit a few years ago.
I know a girl that was an electrics intern at the Santa Fe Opera the previous year.
When this video was mentioned she'd talk about how her years was better.
That year, 2008, they did Pirates vs Ninja which is funnier... if you're into that sort of thing.

Panel of Doctors

Panel of six doctors consulting Mr. Pibb.
Reminds me of this.
Oh Cat and Girl... you complete me.

In '99 I had a Gateway laptop with a "super drive" it was a drive that took disks the size of 3.5" floppies but they help several megs of data.
Truly amazing.
Or so it seemed... especially since my phone is faster and stores more than that computer would ever be able to.

With his wee beady eyes

There was a period where my siblings and I communicated by means of quotes from "So I Married an Ax Murder".
Someday that period may end.

Hump Day?

...yeah I'm sorry for that.

I may have to buy this game.
My reasoning on this is pretty bad.
I want to play it because I've never had my name used in any form of media. So I may be playing this game, good or bad, because name appears in it.

Cal Worthington

I miss when it was Cal Worthington was right next to the Drive In.
Now it's near a K Mart.
Time moves on but I bet I could still get a cheap van conversion from him.

Non stop music

That's why 40 minutes non stop is really somewhere around 29 minutes.

Bonding Time

Beside the sudden arrival of this song and dance on the nerd scene I just like thinking about this guy and his mom figuring out the choreography for this dance.
Good old Mother Son time.

Way Too Late Music Video Fix

Man Triplets of Belleville... love that film.
The Illusionist was great too but lacked some of the charm of Triplets but was much more touching...
...on a side note I would also like a velvet smoking jacket.

When gas first hit $4/gallon I remember hearing someone on Coast to Coast Am talking about an airship start up.
Steampunk hadn't quite hit the popular imagination and was still an odd sub genre of scifi, so there wasn't the buzz that would conquer the internet today if a company proposed such a thing.
Still the idea of taking an airship, instead of a cruise, seems quite interesting.
Don't think about the logistics just about the experience.

Wedding Cake

Saw this on I Heart Chaos.
In Washington we're having our fight for marriage equality.
Here's to hoping we can win this fight.



'End of the Rainbow Tavern' may not be the best name...

Guess this means I'm not as into this show as I thought I was.
This is what I get for not joining forums or really be in 'the know'.

Guess it's a sick day

My cat gives me this look all the time.


I find it odd kids with cell phones but then again I remember making calls from the one pay phone at high school... also guys with pagers.

Or maybe I could have talked about my childhood being raped but really people got to make money and taking an iconic film and making a sequel would work.
Still looks asinine
