(no subject)

Something to do before I jump into the world of Cold Fusion apps...

1. Who was your best friend?

2. What sports did you play?
Freshman year, I was on the freshman girls basketball team. Ugh.

3. What kind of car did you drive?
Had zero interest in driving, didn't get my license 'til I was 21. A couple years later, I gave up on driving and pretty much didn't drive at all for 10 years.

4. It's Friday night, where were you?
Home reading, writing, talking to myself, or watching TV with my parents.

5. Were you a party animal?
No. My idea of a "party" was, a couple times a year, invite some friends, mostly foreign exchange students, over for an international pot-luck supper. I didn't drink until after college, have never smoked and barely dated (though not in high school or college).

6. Were you considered a flirt?
That would be NO. I think my main aim was to be as unattractive to men (or anyone) as humanly possible. For junior and senior year, I pretty much wore men's clothes and kept my hair close-cropped.

7. Were you in band, orchestra, or choir?
I was in the band. Can you imagine me playing flute?

8. Were you a nerd?
Yes. I pretty much studied 4-6 hours a night. I graduated 11th in a class of 300+. I would have been even higher but I tended to get B's in math.

9. Did you get suspended/expelled?
No. No detention either.

10. Can you sing the fight song?
Um, I don't think we had one. I do know that I *HATED* the twice-yearly pep rallies we had to go to. They always struck me as the kiddy version of a Nazi rally. Ugh!

11. Who was your favorite teacher?
Ms. Horne, my A.P. European History teacher. Everybody hated her because she was a very tough teacher and didn't do well "relating" to the students, but she was the best!

12. *is missing*

13. School mascot?
Some kind of Indian Warrior. (Who probably has since been outlawed.)

Cool Dry Place

I've really been enjoying the Traveling Wilburys. It's really no wonder, since I love: Georgie Harrison, the Beatles, ELO, Jeff Lynne, Bob Dylan, Roy Orbison and, at least back in the day, Tom Petty. And it's got ALL of that!

Anyway, this song just played it's stuck in my head to boot, so I must share:

Cool Dry Place*

Well I woke up this morning,
The place was such a wreck
I couldn't reach the bathroom.
Thought Id better clear the deck.
I tried to call the lawyer
And ask him what to do.
He referred me to his doctor
Who referred me back to you,
And when you checked the manual
You kept in side the case
It said put it in a cool dry place.

I drove around the city
Looking for a room
That was high above the water
Where my things could be in tune.
There was noone to help me,
Nobody even cared.
I had to got through hell
To get those things up there.
I paid my first subscription,
Then I joined the idle race,
And they said store it in a cool dry place

Collapse )

I love how this song is sung by Tom Petty but appears to be a collaboration between (at the very least) him and Bob Dylan. It's almost a take-off on "Everybody Must Get Stoned." It even has a similar punchline!

P.S. Favorite line: "We got solids and acoustics // And some from plywood boards // And some are trimmed in leather // And some are made with gourds." Which leads me to thinking about guitars made of gourds, which is just a great mental image.

And like a bear, I have mood swings...

You Are A: Bear Cub!

bear cubBears are strong and independent creatures who roam in the forest in search of food. Bears are usually gentle, but anger one and be prepared for their full fury! You're tough -- a classic attribute of bears. Intelligent and resourceful, though lazy at times, you are a fascinating creature of the wild.

You were almost a: Parakeet or a Duck
You are least like a: Groundhog or a ChipmunkWhat Cute Animal Are You?

I still think I'd be an emu. Though note it said I was *almost* two other kinds of birds.

Bad Writing

There's some bad stuff out there and then there's stuff that's so awful it's noteworthy:

Boob Babies

The author's note: "I thought i'd experiment with a guy having the kids in his breasts."

Yeah, that about sums it up. It's short, thankfully.

There IS a beginning, middle and end, but other than that... Wow.


And on a RELATED note:

Thug Bootie Babies


It makes no sense AND has obscenely sterotypical, 19th-century minstrel-sounding dialog, like: "I'm gonna keep dees babies...Don't care if de look weird on dis thug. I love dees things."


Both stories are from the Pregant Men web site which even I, somebody who actually likes MPREG, find chock full of supremely weird stuff... like REALLY weirD. (Check out the pictures section for example.)
