Formerly Felines for Anarchistic Green Democracies

A Bostonian at the University of Michigan.

There will also be discussion of the New England Patriots, Miami Dolphins, and Michigan Wolverines. Probably in that order.

Willya lookit this?? Three posts in one day! It's like a miracle.

OK, a couple of slightly belated birthday greetings... Amy's birthday was yesterday. Happy birthday, Amy! Babo's birthday was the 11th. Happy birthday, Babo!

I just wanted to let you all that my family went to Legal Sea Foods tonight. According to the sign, it is now officially Legal Oods. Mmm. Oods. Anyways, for dinner, my mother had banana slices in marinara sauce. She claimed that they were scallops, but I swear they were banana slices. They didn't look a thing like scallops, and they looked everything like banana slices.

I finally found a psych article. The only thing is, I printed it out, and it's 17 pages long. It didn't look that long on the website, but I suppose that may have been somewhat deceiving.

*unity divides
division will unite*

If you are online and really, really bored, why not go to

Little brother has left the building. I am overjoyed.

My hands smell like lemons.

Went into the Mac store in the mall today. I love that store. Infinite glory. They had a pen tablet thingy (6 x 8), but it wasn't hooked up to anything, so I couldn't play with it.

One of their Powerbooks had Paint 7 on it, so I was mucking around with that. It's a really, really good program. I would love to have it on my computer. Alas, it is rather expensive. Anyways, I drew an eye, and left it on the computer. It wasn't very good, 'cause you may not know it, but it's really hard to draw with a laptop touchpad. I certainly hadn't realized it. I mean, I can't draw very well with a mouse either, but the touchpad was even worse.

I guess I could get better if I did more drawing on the computer with the mouse, but I much prefer working by hand. So I don't get any practice in. Hence my desire for a pen tablet.

Hence and Nonce are both very nice words.

Last night me, Jess and Liz went to the batting cages and the driving range. The batting cage was an utter disaster for me. I suppose that the only good thing about it was that it reminded me exactly why I do not play softball. The driving range was much more fun, because I could actually hit the ball, and it would got places. It didn't go as far as Liz's (she was hitting them all the way out to the fence!), but it went farther than Jessica's. Jess was hitting them kind of funny, they would go a ways, but they would sort of skim the ground, instead of getting up in the air.

Then we played ping pong at my house. At this point, Liz had drunk two (yes, two) energy drinks in a very short period time, plus a bag of Swedish fish and two rolls of Mentos. Her hyperness cannot be conceived unless you had seen it. I mean, we're talking jumping around, tapping everything, and, scariest of all, jerking the car all over the road. I was terrified.

After the first drink, when we were driving out to the batting cages, Liz's hyperness had made Jess hyper, and we were passing the lovely Salem State campus, and there was a sign for the play Oedipus. Jessica starts screaming, "Oedipus!!! OEDIPUS!! OEDIPUS!!! FIELD TRIP!!!" Liz was kind of driving along, grinning spastically and tapping the steering wheel, and then all of a sudden she notices the sign too, and she screams, "O my god! OEDIPUS!" and stops the car in the middle of the road in order whirl around in her seat and look at the sign and scream, "I didn't see it before! I thought you were just yelling 'Oedipus!'!! But there it is! OEDIPUS!!" Thank cats there was no one behind us.

Anyways, that was on one energy drink. I leave her behavior after 2 to your own imagination.

*dirtybird never lose that feeling*

Got my slides back. They look like they came out pretty gloriously. But, I mean, how can you really tell? I've got 4 copies of each in different exposures, but I can't really tell on the slides which one looks better. How am I supposed to pick without actually putting them in a slide projector? Does anyone know??

Tomorrow night is the Sopranos season premier! I am very excited! I love that show! Six Feet Under too... I'm not sure which one I like better, they're both so very wonderous. I don't watch Sex in the City. Two HBO shows is enough for me.

*when you see me walking miles away
but someone has to pay*

The Run Lola Run soundtrack is really good, in keeping with the magnificence of the movie. At first all of the songs sounded alike, but now that I've listened to it a number of times I can tell them apart, and I like the vast majority of them.

I started thinking about Run Lola Run. I do believe that it is one of my all-time favorite movies. What are the others? Yeah, I know you care so much, but tough toots. I shall tell you anyways.

-Run Lola Run
-Waking Life
-the Matrix
-Best in Show
-Lord of the Rings
-Being John Malkovich
-Shakespeare in Love

I think that's about it. There may be a few more that I'm just blanking on right now, but that's the sum of it that I can bring to mind at this particular moment in time.

Freakiest movies I have ever seen?

-Requiem for a Dream
-Man Bites Dog
-Office Killer

Best quotes from movies that I actually remember?

"On really romantic evenings of self, I go salsa dancing with my confusion." -Waking Life

"His name is Babe... Babe Magnet." -Chulsky, in e-love

That's enough movie stuff for now.

Slog, slog, slog. Through a bog.

Perhaps I ought to go attend to my math homework.
Well, perhaps not.

Just got The Watchmen. It won a Hugo award, and when I first got it I thought to myself, "What comic book wins a literary award?" Then I read it. Then I realized why it had won a major literary award. Wow. It was so incredible that it almost defies explanation. I mean... it seems at first like just another superhero comic, but it really is just as much a regular superhero comic as Maus or Ghost World is. That is to say, not at all.

I read the whole thing in one day, and then I read it over again, and again. Each time I got more subtleties out of it, both in the writing and the illustrations. The only complaint that I have is with the coloring, which, quite frankly, sucks. But the rest of it makes up for that. More than makes up for it. I don't care if you think comic books are stupid. You need to read The Watchmen. It is, so far as I can see, a major literary landmark. In-freaking-credible.

Alright. I've ranted and raved enough for one day. Three posts!
