Movin' on up

Seriously, Who Says That?

I've re-located.

Oh, fantastic...

38 dead after being bitten by vampire bats -

Monsters in Montauk and now vampires. End of times or are we just now noticing? I choose to believe that the world is full of monsters which we knew about long ago, explained away, and are now realizing we were right about in the first place.

Reasons I watch the Olympics

Julia Wilkinson - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

1. I love athletes. The human body is an amazing thing, and I am always awed by those who can almost perfect it.

2. I freely admit I cry just about every time. And if the Star Spangled Banner plays - forget it. I'm out.

3. I love the history of it. Yeah - I'm a nerd. Deal.

4. The idealist that lives deep inside of me buried underneath all of my cynicism thinks it's really romantic.

5. Click that link - she was my student. That's right - I know somebody who has a Wikipedia link.

since we are talking about the famous people I know - check out my buddy and fellow blogger:

I know there is at least one other Marxist reading this...Hide no more!!

How did I not do this first?

Those of you who know me will recognize that this is a combination of some of my
favorite pastimes: lauding Batman and hating the current administration.

Great news!!

The Associated Press: Edouard now depression after drenching Texas coast

The great news is not that my home state is drowning - that's not a good thing.

But the good news is that this weather is drenching us and keeping the temp at 95 degrees or lower. Today it was 75 degrees at 6pm. That doesn't usually happen until late October or early November. We haven't had rain in a while - or so people tell me. Growing up in the wilds of west TX I have always thought rain more than once every 3 months was excessive. I think it has been about a month or something - whatever. I don't like mud. But I do like relief from the heat. And for now, I've got it.

How sad is it that 95 degrees is a relief? I live in hell.
