flummoxicated: (Books)
I signed up recently for Paperback Swap; the first book I requested just happened to be from someone who lives in the same town as I do! How weird is that? It's not like this is a huge town, and there are at least 58,000+ members. So my book was hand delivered and left at the front door.

OK, so this isn't the most exciting blog post around, but at least now you know about Paperback Swap, which is a pretty neat deal.

*I received a spam email with the subject line, "Give Her an Orgasm in 33 Simple Steps". 33? That doesn't seem simple at all! What the heck are they selling?

*We were invited to an Easter day brunch and I made Alton Brown's Indian Rice Pudding for the occasion. Yum! I used light coconut milk and half and half because I'm trying to count calories. And I added a tiny amount - like 1/8 teaspoon - of rose water. That stuff is potent, you don't want your food to taste like Grandma's perfume. Also-  NO RAISINS. Raisins have no place in my dessert world. They trick you into thinking that they are chocolate chips, but then you dig in and discover your mistake TOO LATE!

*Today we had rain, then sun, then rain, then sun again, only cooler, then tiny bits o' hail for about five minutes. Whee.

Received in my email today:

"Grow your organ larger than your arm"

Do guys really think this would be attractive to the ladies? What would you do for pants? How would you sit down?

Or are they talking about keyboard instruments?

There must be decent landlords out there - I just haven't had the good fortune to rent from one.

As I was reading for Classical Rhetoric the other night, I wondered - was Jocasta the world's first MILF?

"Work. Finish. Publish." – Michael Faraday's advice to a young scientist.

I need that engraved on something, though it's not exactly what I call uplifting.

Nothing evokes Foucault quite like a ski-a-thon at the South Pole, which makes it a natural choice to raise money for the Foucault Society.

Spring Break has arrived! I can't remember a time when I needed a break as much as I do right now. Lasy year we went to London, this year we may make it to Chicago for a day. That's all right, as long as I can sleep past 5:30 AM I'm quite happy.

I was going to make this awesome post where I updated everything that's been going on, but my mind just did the equivalent of the Windows Blue Screen of Death. So I'll leave you with a photo of what's left of the snow around here.



Yep, just random piles of ice, like some frost giant sneezed and his icy snot went all over the town. We do have a couple of piles of ice in the front yard that are prettier, though not for much longer. Oh well, winter will be back at the end of the year; right now I could deal with springtime and a chance to maybe start a garden.

There's a lot of stress on my FList right now - here's wishing all of you better times.

Be back later when my brain resets.

Bratz Baby Doll Bratz Baby Doll
This is all kinds of ick.

I spotted this at Target the other day while waiting for my rx refill. Yes, it's a Bratz baby doll. The regular Bratz dolls are weird enough - but what is happening here, is this supposed to be a sexy infant? That is all sorts of wrong.

File this with [profile] vyoma 's recent discovery of a dog for a Barbie doll which poops - Barbie comes complete with a pooper scooper!
(Oh yeah, and in the interest of recycling, apparently the dog eats the poop too.)
