Random jottings--

lthe_october has a cute challenge in his LJ--make your own unnecessarily creepy scifi alien nuisance. I'll have to think on this one once my brain is up to speed.

Act of purest financial irresponsibility: I broke down and bought a "real" didjeredoo. It's beautiful, about five feet long, finished agave cactus, with a wonderful deep rich tone. It says "concert quality" on the paper. Mm, shiny.

Typical haven't-posted excuse--Work's got me fried, and I've been dividing my spare time between Baktre and staring into space, or staring into space with Baktre. Most days at work have been "challenging." I have a potential $2.million project that I'm the main organizer on, and my boss redefines the project every single day. It's very frustrating. Once the saga's over I'm going to make a report on it.

Scavenger report: Went shopping with kannah and baktre yesterday. Picked up a nice blacklight fixture, a Domino's Pizza delivery jacket, three of those little tabletop card-holders they put beer or dessert advertisements in, good wooden ones with Samuel Adams Beer on them, purple camo shorts, the aforementioned didj, a kewl prezzie for TrollTruck, and a 1976 copy of the Raggedy Ann board game board. It's very cute. Saw a neat wall hanging at Limbo, but they didn't take checks and I didn't feel like working anything else out, I was kind of irritated by the no-checks thing. It was this horrible 70's french girl, very much a middle school student (plain clothes), with this fried zombie expression, like her life wasn't worth living but maybe Prozac could help, clutching a book labeled "Grammaire." Yay!

Oh, and a copy of Keanu Reeves' "Babes in Toyland," which is enough to test the strongest friendship, relationship, and stomach. I think I'm going to have a "Let's Hate Christmas Movies" party in the vague seasonal future.


And now, I'm going to sell books to baptists. If anybody tells them how non-Jack Chick compliant I am, I may not make it back :)

Damn you for dredging that up, Spotty.

Where's that image from? Is that Babes in Toyland? I've never actually made it through BIT before.

Sadly, I was young enough to sit through it on several occasions. Yup, apparently Santa is really Santa San. For years I thought Big Red would kill me in my sleep if I was naughty or dishonorable.

*hugs you, trembling* If anything wrong has ever happened in your life, or mine, it was from watching that accursed movie!!

"Okay, Keanu, give me the innocent wonder of a Christmas fantasyland come to life!"

"Whoa."

OH GOD, THE MEMORIES, THE HORRIBLE MEMORIES!!!!

*pours ice cold water in his ears to stop the cranial melting* x_O

Okay, so I've seen worse, but.. not much worse than that. Even when I was a little kid, I knew the movie sucked.

Have you used it as a massage tool, yet?

Re: Didjeridoo
Bit awkward, being that it's almost as tall as I am, but maybe one of the smaller ones. What an interesting idea :)
