In a conversation with my sister that was spawned by the fact that On Stranger Tides is being sold in grocery stores, I came up with the idea of other movie franchises deciding to "adapt" Tim Powers novels.

  • Ocean's 11+n: Last Call
  • Twilight: The Stress of Her Regard

(That last one is my sister's fault.)

Oh yeah…

That's why I hate yard work so much. I did 5-6 hours of it today, and am now more tired than a very tired thing that's full of tires.

And it's still only May.

  1. The bus driver driving aggresively and likely illegally. (That's not what the shoulder is for. Especially when you're as wide as a bus.)
  2. The fact that if he weren't, we'd be barely moving at all.

I'm in a six-player RPG. We have a Julian, a Julia, and a Julie.

This could get confusing.

After a few incidents in a row that suggested I might want to be on Facebbok, I took advantage of my wasted afternoon and sat down to play with it.

Last I looked, I had five friends, had made requests of a bunch more, including several people I'd lost touch with, and had one friend request from somebody I sort-of knew in high school, who appears to have detected me by magic.

I'm still figuring out the interface, but it's not completely horrid.

I also still need to add a picture to my profile, to help differentiate me from the other Julian Lighton out there.

And I just realized I can make a dedicated email address on jl8e.org for all the notification emails.

From visiting a few Circuit Cities today, I ended up with five new CDs:

Nine Inch Nails
Still more Disturbed

Does anybody have a better name for the non-denominational winter gift-giving holiday? That name's a bit unweildy, and "NDWGGH" sounds like you're suffering from severe gastro-intestinal distress.

One thing that happens with ripping my old tapes is that I get to hear some really cheesy lyrics.

I think I'd be getting less cheese if I were mainlining Gouda than I do from Europe's song about ninjas.

Which has no idea what ninjas were.

Not just having two gigabytes of memory in my computer, but taking steps to make sure I don't run out.

It's where you go to post things like this:

I've mustered enough energy to go to bed, where I may dream more dreams combining politics and rock band.

I'm supposed to get stuck in traffic on my way into the city, not on the way out.

My queue of unread books borrowed from other people is currently empty.

Maybe this will let me make a dent in my queue of unread books that I own.

Headline from my local paper:

Woman stabs ex-beau over cell phone

Hands up if you first read that the same way I did.

I have just plugged in:

  • My computer
  • My iPod (into the computer)
  • An iGo multi-gizmo charger
  • A Bluetooth transmitter for the iPod (into the iGo)
  • My Palm (into the iGo)
  • A Bluetooth headphone/headset (into its own charger)
  • My phone (into its charger)

For the first time in about a month, I'm planning to buy some of the downloadable songs for Rock Band.

And it's Duran Duran.

I will return to reality on Sunday night.


For once, I got every event I signed up for. Except for the one I thought I was signing up for, but instead signed up for a D&D 3.5 game from midnight to 4 on Saturday. Apparantly I can't tell the difference between 209 and 296.

I also seem to have managed to sign up for two events simultaneously. Oops. I think I can manage to play in both of those, though.

One thing I noticed in the past is that, when I was in a really good mood, the two songs that had the greatest tendency to pop into my head were singularly inappropriate: Black Sabbath's "Paranoid", and Nirvana's "Lithium".

Paranoid's wandered out of that playlist, probably due in part to Rock Band, but Lithium's still there. The Who's "Behind Blue Eyes" may have joined it, but I'm not sure yet -- I've been on a Who kick recently anyway.

Having read this, I'm half tempted to suggest a road trip.

I'm not old enough for the things of my childhood to start showing up in the Smithsonian.
