Ahh, the Nintendo generation...

In keeping with all the Sesame Street links from the other day: C for Cookie

Also, Sesame Gone Wild (NSFW, needs YT reg, Spirit, ICQ me and you can log on to my account, I made one to watch it) (lame but funny as hell)

Seriously. It's lame as hell but when you're kinda down and worried and the whole world is spinning around 'cause they don't know what's wrong with your head and you can see a specialist in only 3 months, YouTube some classic Sesame Street. You can't be sad and watch Sesame Street. If you didn't grow up on it, this may not apply to you. Note: "Classic" is not equal to "Elmo." Elmo's a NEW character. Elmo may cheer up some kids and mommies. Elmo will drive most grown men into a violent rage. Like Barney. Which is sad because I realized I really want the Elmopalooza DVD.

Oh, yeah, and I found out the answer to a question that had been plaguing me for a very long time here--when did the grownups start seeing/believing in Snuffy?

How You Are In Love

You fall in love quickly and easily. And very often.

You tend to take more than give in relationships.

You tend to get very attached when you're with someone. You want to see your love all the time.

You love your partner unconditionally and don't try to make them change.

You stay in love for a long time, even if you aren't loved back. When you fall, you fall hard.

A little perspective

And something less deep

Vote on the new face of Monopoly


Sesame Street Songs

I remember reading about a simpler version of this back in the Weekly Reader ohhhhhh 20 years ago. So, it's about time.


The idea is safe, sane, and consensual. Removing body parts outside an operating room is at least not safe, and possibly not sane. (see also) (Note: Savage's comment on Dr. Phil really hit the mark for me) (Note also: I can understand, to a degree, the "born in the wrong body" issue. But there has to be a better way to resolve that than indulging that need in terms of a direct sexual fetish--and I'm all for indulging your fetishes--I'm just also for not mutilating and eating people, even if they want to be eaten and/or mutilated). (Seriously. Youch. Few fetishes give me the willies like this--it hurts me and I don't even have the equipment)

A little Googlebombing, since I love BMEZine so so much: Shannon
(Spirit, you can ignore that line) (maybe not, there's some good stuff on that blog)

Oh, one more: priceless.

Also, some eye candy.
There be ghosts here

Sex in 2010: first the male pill, now possibly a topical HIV-preventive.

These are cool

So is this

And this


Not much to surf tonight, guess I'll turn in early. I miss Spirit.

Brief comment

Sex is good for you

Medical MJ and the Catch-22

Long live the Queen ...there have been rumors for decades that she will pass the throne directly to her grandson rather than to Prince Charles. Looks like she may plan to do so simply by outliving her oldest son.

Wow... problems run in the Sheen family, don't they?

Once again the wire services are behind the curve (but Blogs aren't "real news")

I'd like to thank John Scalzi for writing this. Mr. Scalzi, I promise to buy and read one of your books soon. Until then, I'll remain a faithful follower of your blog.

more here on purity balls. I can't bring myself to link directly to the FotF website, but the link's on Whatever.

Here's the crux of it:
"I make a promise this day to God to remain sexually pure until the day I give myself as a wedding gift to my husband. I know that God requires this of me, that he loves me, and that he will reward me for my faithfulness." And the daddies pledge to protect their little girls' honors.
What do you do if you have Vampire problems?

This is amazing. By "religious" (esp. with the breakdown on the second map), they clearly mean the Abrahamic religions--someone in the post complains about native tribal religions "not counting"--but I'm still amazed that my own county is in the lowest category. I'm also surprised by how much of this country is primarily Catholic (could've pointed out the Baptist states to you, though, no problem). (I realized reading down that I shouldn't be--a lot of the Southwest are big, spacious states, taking up a lot of space and therefor color on the maps--and they have very high Latino populations, which tend Catholic). I really am floored, as people around here seem to take for granted that everyone either goes to church or should, yet less than 1/3 of people around here are members of church congregations? (In point of fact, I'm still a listed member of at least two church congregations--one Presbyterian, one Salvationist--but haven't attended either in the better part of a decade, and am pretty firmly Pagan these days).


This looks cute. I'd still like to see Akeelah and the Bee, too. Not sure who the non-spelling-geek audience is on that one, but then, ESPN2 always draws viewers on the National Bee, so maybe. (Gripe: I only got shown in the background on ESPN2. And the girl who won my year was a spoiled, self-absorbed little thing. I think she won the Jeopardy! teen tourney a couple years later).

Remember ladies, the guy who's nice to you, but not to your server, is not nice.

I'm going to end here. I'm feeling like crap, walked a few miles today, and am now burning a CD for my new truck. (Yeah Spirit I said MY new truck 8P)

thoughts on this: 1. And by ending the auction, eBay probably gave this wider exposure and guaranteed a good sale. 2. "Found guilty but criminallly insane... died in a mental hospital." This needs to happen more. Not guilty by reason of insanity is dead wrong. If you're insane enough to kill someone they need to be able to put your ass in a hospital for a minimum sentence.

Did you know the original Cheeta is still alive?

...the soles of one's feet?

Why would you keep plain-glass glasses to wear when you have contacts in? Why risk the irritation of contacts just to wear glasses anyway?

Help some poor dude have a threesome

with 404s

deep beneath Paris...

This scares me. Living a lifestyle doesn't make you a bad parent or imply your children are exposed to it.

Well, I slept 4 hours and was woken by a train, so time for one more nap before I have to go feed my friends' mutts. Sweet dreams, world!

"because of her years of service she will not be fired" --she needs to be put on administrative duties and never answer another emergency call. I have a little boy only a little younger and I can only imagine him watching his mother die because the grown-ups there to keep us safe didn't take him seriously when he called for help. We teach our kids to call 911 in emergencies for a reason.

So who's been following this Gospel of Judas story? I've figured for a long time that Jesus was in on his "betrayal," so I don't find this earthshaking or feel the urge to deny or bury my head in the sand.

This is just brilliant.

Ironic and uncanny? No, Gnostic scholars and others have long believed that Mary Magdalene married the Christ and that they may have had progeny.

Drool, men, drool... Nice how they went with a woman 20 years younger but are still trying to get the Hoff.
Baby showers gone bad


Overgrown plants? Get 'em drunk

Let's think about the implications of the phrase "new species of dinosaur" before we use it in mainstream journalism, hmm? How about newly-discovered species of dinosaur? 'Cause if we actually have NEW species of the things cropping up, some of evolutionary biology's gonna need a major rethink.

And I thought child custody cases quickly became ridiculous

I really like the phrase "self-adjusting nut wrench"

Life without this stuff--day, ummm, must be 5 now--still sucks. I'm trying to revamp my healthiness wholeheartedly, sticking to only whole grains, no refined sugars or starches. Slight exception for refined sugars and caffeine for very small amounts of chocolate--mostly I really still crave diet cola and I still really want a daily cigarette or two no matter how long I go without. Pray for me--my pain levels are through the roof and I'm dragging--usually I only have one or the other, maybe because the pain keeps me awake, but apparently, without caffeine, it doesn't. Still, the anti-caffeine crowd insists that giving it up is one of the biggest health/sleep differences you can make for yourself, so I'm trying. Hard. Next winter when I'm wolfing bagels and mocha lattes to keep warm and fat in a Northern winter, don't remind me of this.

These are funny

Why this business sucks for workin' girls

nsfw links follow:
I don't understand this. You find a real girl then dress her up like a doll? Aren't dolls for when you don't have a real girl available? ...Actually, in intense D&S to the point of objectification play I can see it. But this takes fetishism to a different level. I never say never, mind.


Did you hear about the prostitute who specialized in bondage?

...She was strapped for cash.




sleepy--going to close my eyes and let my cold medicine work while the kid plays a game.

This makes me regret my experiment in giving up caffeine (except small amounts of chocolate). No caffeine and no nicotine makes Cricket an edgy, bitchy little girl...

Well, I guess Chuck thinks the whole thing is pretty funny.

I'm a little late posting this but I've got a lot of respect. Actually, the first time I donated my hair to Locks of Love, I wanted to go totally bald, but got talked out of it, so both times I've gotten an attractive if shorter cut. If I could raise money for a good cause, though, I'd still do it. I'd look butch as hell, though--I looked pretty butch in a recent picture and I have enough hair to cover my breasts now.

Oh, the horrors

Some shirts and some cartoons

"Donkeys better than wives"

Fun with time (sorry, guys, you missed it, but I'll stay up for it tonight and let you know when it gets there at home, Spirit--well, if you want to count PM instead of going on the 24-hour clock, then you've got one more shot)

This is ridiculous--why's NYC being so Puritan lately?

Homestar Runner
has a wiki--I make sure I watch every Foamy cartoon, but I always forget to watch Homestar Runner. This does have an up-side--I've seen only a handful of HSR cartoons, and on one of the 3 days off I had to take next week, I'll have something to do here. I mean how can you not laugh at this stuff? You know, unless you're in pain and sort of down in general and too tired to laugh so you're laughing on the inside and don't even realize how grouchy you appear on the outside until someone asks how you can not be laughing... oh... wait. Seriously, though, the Strongbad emails are the best ones, IMO.

Minor spoiler for Shrek 2: Why on earth don't they make stuffed animals of the little mutant babies? I haven't even been able to find a picture of them--and they're adorable! If anyone knows of stuffed animals of the dragon-donkey babies, please contact me and let me know where I can try to find them.

PSAs from The Office

These were the best ads ever. The "Church" one was the first I saw--spirit and I just stared at each other in amazement for probably a full 30 seconds before bursting out laughing. This MySpace page has some obnoxious formatting/background music, but has the text for a couple I hadn't seen. That O'Haire guy didn't last too long on WWE (except that apparently he was back last week, which is odd, because that's like the one time I've watched RAW in forever, and it got me wondering what happened to the dude, but I didn't hear that during the show. To be fair, I was a bit distracted playing with Spirit's new (NSFW) jewelry).

I do love the Internet on April Fool's Day. I told Spirit that the best prank would be to get married today, were it possible--no one would believe us--but alas, it'll still be some time--hopefully 8 weeks-ish, but shouldn't be past mid-July, Gods willing. But anyway, enjoy. Change "2006" to the previous few years in the URL for more fun.
Your DNA in a crystal...
New Prestige Class for D20 (hah)

(Great Cleave has a lot of good gaming stuff, otherwise, too)

Best COPS-style vid EVER

your little girl to roleplaying!*

After you die...

After death, you will exist in heaven. Everything and everyone you love will constantly surround you for all of eternity. You lucky scoundrel.

Take this quiz at

I just hope it's not the same version of Heaven as Pat Robertson ends up in.

*Yeah, April Fool's. Cute, non?




(also) (the men's is just as disgustingly, hysterically stereotyped)

I have a couple days off, except for a few hours Sunday morning. Nice, right?

Oh, if you've ever wondered how hard it'd be to get laid through an adult online service, read this--the answer that's an email sent to/through the ask-er is awesome.
