Say Anything

Done. Done with blogs for a couple days. Bleah. Dumb, silly, pretentious, asinine blogs.

Including this one?--Honey, this one sets the standard for dumb, silly, pretentious, asinine blogging.

Please feel free to throw random thoughts into the comments. And I write that knowing that asking people to please leave a comment is the number-one, surefire way not to get any comments.

If you're topically challenged, here are five words, in no particular order, that I never want to read, nor write, again:

(1) Ecosystem
(2) Unusual
(3) Required (especially when followed by "reading")
(4) Poll (especially when preceded by "internet")
(5) Visionary

Share your own, or instead, just tell me something good. Anything good.

UPDATE: Okay, this definitely qualifies as good.

Sometimes taking a break is good for your soul and mind.
Enjoy the rest/relaxation.

So, here's my question:
Why, exactly, is the M1911 pretty much the standard for autoloading pistols? The Czech CZ-52 uses a freakin' machine gun action, so you know it is strong and reliable. so why didn't that become the standard...? it only a weight issue?

If animals had opposable thumbs...

Why must there be...ticks?

If animals had opposable thumbs, I could train my cats to change their own damn litterbox. Sweet!

Maura: Good question. I'm not really seeing the use of them.

1) Vampire(s) (Enough already)
2) Geek (Also overused)
3) Virus/Spam (No explanation necessary)
4) Required (If preceded by "Registration" or if followed by anything at all)
5) Lists (Just kidding)

1. Conspiracy (preceeded by right wing/left wing)
2. Core competencies (I'm still bitter about that damn interview)
3. "Coming soon!" (WHEN, dammit, WHEN??!)
4. Moist (it just sounds icky)
5. Sacred and/or sanctity

if an Ohio farmer plants winter wheat in the fall and harvests it in the summer, then is there something that he can grow on the empty field before the frost?

rammer, I think impatiens would be nice.

Posted by: maura at May 16, 2004 06:36 AM

Do you have any idea--I mean any idea what cats would be capable of if they had thumbs?

I may not sleep for a week.

Y'know, Lachlan, moist IS an icky-sounding word.

Lately I've been ruminating on the frequency range of mosquito buzzing. I don't have perfect pitch, but I wonder if any have ever been clocked doing a 440 A.

[slap] Nah.

Aaron Spelling: overlooked genius or counter-culture warlord?

Twinkies: desert cake, or little source of evil?

Socialist health care: a possibility or yet another drop in the bucket?

Turkey: white or dark meat?

Oh yeah. I am as asinine as the rest of the world.

Here's a visionary poll on an unusual Ecosystem that's required reading.



In other breaking news, it turns out there's an entire universe outside the blogosphere. Film at 11.
