I saw Casanova, and my favorite line of the whole movie (my approximate memory, anyway):

"I shudder to think of the level of depravity to which they have sunk if there is BACON involved."

My fortune:

"In order to discover who you are, first learn who everybody else is. You're what's left."

Great. I'm leftovers. What a terrible fortune! The contractions and syntax are too good for it to be a poor translation of something nicer.

So, what's going on for Halloween?

I found this on Monster, while researching my vet prospects:

One of the asian guys in the usual group of smokers and spitters that hangs out on the corner of Beach St was wearing a t-shirt that says "I rocked 'til I dropped at the Goldstein Bat-Mitzvah!" I'm guessing he's not jewish.

storm

That was a heck of a storm. It woke me up, and Stella, who usually doesn't care about thunder, was up in my bed panting and shaking. Poor thing. It seemed to last longer than usual, perhaps because it was preventing me from going back to sleep. The fire department arrived on my street toward the end, but this morning I didn't see any downed trees or anything. Hopefully the noise didn't give someone a heart attack.

Yesterday, I spent the day rafting on the Penobscot river in Maine. We drove about an hour north of Bangor, 5.5 hours total, on Saturday, got up on Sunday, and spent the whole day on the river. The weather could not have been better, and I only got washed out of the boat once. I didn't get home last night until almost midnight, and the dogs required some attention before they'd let me sleep. Of course, [livejournal.com profile] rojagato took excellent care of the foster doggie, and Stella spent the night with my Nana, they just like to fuss. I'm sore and tired today, but it was totally worth it.

Your local government can now seize your property for private development projects, not just public works projects. To me, that shows complete contempt for the foundations of this country.

This came up on page 5 when I searched images.google.com for "father's day", looking for cheesy clip art for a card.

This is soooooooo not what I was expecting. Not exactly work-safe.

Next weekend is Father's Day. Make your dad happy, feed him pie. I can deliver on Saturday, or you can pick stuff up on your way to visit Dad on Sunday.

Woohoo, shameless self promotion!

One of my neighbor's dogs got out its front door with no leash and came running toward Stella, who slammed me into a tree. As a result, I am covered in band-aids and unable to put real shoes on over my poor mangled toes. This sort of thing really shouldn't happen before I've had my coffee.

I want to see this when it opens at Coolidge Corner:

Happy adoption day to Stella, my lovely doggie :)

Language is constantly evolving, and that's great, but "impactful" is not a real @&*!# word. Nor can you shorten "is recruited to" to "recruits to", as in "this protein recruits to the plasma membrane in response to..." I think the presidency of GWB is making people think it's okay to give up on good grammar and talk like 5-year-olds, but I refuse to accept it.

I turned off IP logging. Not that I've ever looked at it anyway. So go ahead, spill it (anonymously)!

On Monday, I started taking Omega-3 FA supplements. Unfortunately, about 30 minutes later I get aftertaste of fish. This is especially gross at 10am.
