See You Next Wednesday
Wednesday, March 2
 
Counting down to the weekend.

I have been practicing my interweb skills with Speedpig. I composed a mix tape for my car but the cassette recorder ate the tape about eight seconds into the first track. Next Week For Sure threw the first grading game (soccer: three to four) on our way back to B grade. I drove to Bulahdelah on Friday.

Two days and three nights in Bulahdelah.

On Saturday Emma and I went for a drive. The track to Treachery Bay was appropriately unsafe to navigate in my Echo. Instead we ate ice cream at Seal Rocks. Then we drove to Taree and visited a gallery before seeing Constantine* at the movies. On Sunday we went for a couple of walks around town; pretty much the same walk twice as there isn’t much town. If you want more information I may cry because now we are five hundred kilometres apart again.

Meanwhile, at the cattery.

While I was away Linda redecorated the surfaces with dustfreeness and adorned the office with a new and speedy computer. Huzzah! Now I am practicing my interweb skills with Blackpig. (Actual name of computer may vary.)

Other people’s memes.

Ten things I've done that I don't think anyone reading this has
1. Kicked chips off Stonehenge. (Sorry Andrew)
2. Climbed on a Henry Moore sculpture.
3. Corrected a dislocated knee (mine) by falling on it.
4. Dissected a cadaver.
5. Eaten whale meat.
6. Quaffed a yard of beer in one go.
7. Received an offer of homosexual sex in exchange for drugs.
8. Operated a hand puppet for children’s television.
9. Driven for more than a kilometer while looking in the glove box.
10. Walked from Inverness to Culloden (and back).

Also, I did some quizzes (but the graphics were incompatible with my blog template).

I am nerdier than 14% of all people.

My brain is 46.67% female, 53.33% male:
Your brain is a healthy mix of male and female.
You are both sensitive and savvy.
Rational and reasonable, you tend to keep level headed.
But you also tend to wear your heart on your sleeve.

What [Eurocentric] religion are you?
Category Unknown
You don't fit into any of the above categories, so perhaps before you get angry or confused, check what other religion(s) you scored the highest on. For example, you might be a Christian-Pagan, or a Discordian-Wiccan. Just use a bit of logic. However, according to this test, you're simply 100% YOU. You don't fit into any of the world's boxes.
All of the possible quiz results for this quiz: Fundamentalist Christian (You scored 0); Holy Roller (You scored 0); Average Christian (You scored 0); True Christian (You scored 0); Modern Satanist (You scored 0); Theistic/Traditional Satanist (You scored 0); Luciferian (You scored 0); Devil Worshipper (You scored 0); Atheist (You scored 0); Agnostic (You scored 0); New Aged/Wiccan (You scored 0); Pagan/Occultist (You scored 3); Discordian (You scored 0); Category Unknown (You scored 7)

*About Constantine.

As a viewer ignorant of the source material (the closing credits confirmed my suspicion it was based on a comic) it seemed, in the end, to resemble a very clever idea and I enjoyed it. However I only saw the end because Emma kept me awake through the character introductions as they vaguely paid lip service to the very clever idea. I suspect if you can cop Keanu Reeves at all it won’t be as good as the comic; and if you can’t then it won’t resemble the comic at all. On the other hand it made me sleepy, I may have missed some things.
 
Comments:
woah. now with less orange. much, much less orange. i miss it. (this is one way in which orange is like you.)

p.s. girl (as in, she's a)
 
I too miss the orange, but I like the addition of comments. Long may you rule.
 
Yay. I too can add a superfluous comment bemoaning the lack of orange and addition of comments.

One a side note, today is the first day in nearly seven years that Linda and I have worked in the same building (not counting her coming over to renovate the house...)

8. Operated a hand puppet for children’s television. Been there, done that... At least I hope it was for children's television. In China, all things are possible.
 
The comments were enabled due to popular demand and, in the spirit of peer pressure, may I just add: the orange is back. Next I will do something about the epileptic blue links and possibly find new 'things I have done' to replace the whale meat and puppeteering. Thank you, you are too kind.
 
I'm kinda sorry I missed the non-orange, cause right at the moment, if you were to ask how much more orange it could be, I'd have to say, none, none more orange.

This may not sound like the snappiest line from 2001: A Space Odyssey (1968), but it evidently caught the imagination of John Landis, who has worked references to a mythical film of this name into most of his own movies - memorably as the grotty British skinflick watched by an assortment of lycanthropes and zombies in the climax of An American Werewolf in Paris [sic] (1981). Ghastly Beyond Belief, Neil Gaiman and Kim Newman
