There was a fire in

There was a fire in the lab today within close proximity of a friend. But that wasn't the scary part. The thing that frightened me was that a man with a pHd, several years research and publications in organic chemistry tried to extinguish it by blowing on it. By his theory all firemen need are a good set of lungs.

I'm a bit pissed off

I'm a bit pissed off at a couple of people who have been making stupid comments at this site recently. We have a pretty cool community here that got along, had a laugh and made this site fun. But a few recent arrivals are hijacking posts and just being rude/stupid and making comments of absolutely no relevance. Please have some sort of respect for this site and the people who visit it. If you can't say anything intelligent don't say anything at all. And if this continues I'll disable the comments function or even take down the site, that's how much it's annoying me. Or maybe find a way of banning your I.P. addresses.

My room is scattered with miniature plastic farmyard animals and no one is 'fessing up. It feels like I've stepped into a surreal world where a George Orwell novel has collided with Honey I Shrunk the Kids and Twister. Moooooo.

Today's one of those days where EVERY song on the radio is relevant and striking certain chords within me. Sigh.

I sigh too much, don't I? Just call me Sigh-ma.

I still love Michael Jackson.

I still love Michael Jackson. If only for the fact that he did songs like Human Nature. It's one of those 'take me away from this place into a fantasy land where everything is magical and I feel so good inside for about three minutes' songs. And he's done so many of those types of songs that it's hard to write him off. The album Dangerous alone is enough to qualify him as the King of Pop for me.

I had so much planned

I had so much planned for this weekend. I had so much work to do. But I spent most of it either trying fix my piece of crap phone, trying to fix my piece of crap computer or sitting here thinking extensively and generally overanalysing and being silly. The weekend's not over I guess so I'd better do some work.

Why am I getting hits from Metafilter? Was it something I said?

I got my first Sircam virus infected e-mail. The subject line was my cousin's name. His full name plus my nickname for him. That kind of freaked me out. Considering I haven't spoken to him for about twelve years.

Someone who has made my life a living hell and made me cry for the last three years has just been diagnosed with breast cancer. I wouldn't wish that upon anyone. She's in my prayers.

I dreamt I had a cute little kitty. I kept feeding it. It liked me. It was a nice feeling.

"Show me the meaning of being lonely
Is this the feeling I need to walk with
Tell me why I can't be there where you are
There's something missing in my heart"

Andreas Johnson - Glorious (an oldie but a goodie)

Here she comes with a master plan
And I'm starting to lose control
Here she comes to this trash of man
And I'm ready to taste it all, when

She's bringing me in
Checking me out
Making me glorious

Here she comes like a brand new day
Belly dancing across the room
In the moonlight I watch her sway
To her rhythm I'll go as groom, with grace, tonight

She's bringing me in
Checking me out
Making me glorious

Well
(Here she comes)...

She's bringing me in
Checking me out
Making me glorious
She's bringing me in
Turning me on
Making me glorious

[from the album Liebling]

"To watch a passenger reading

"To watch a passenger reading a poem on the Underground, and catch the fleeting smile, is to share in a brief conspiracy of understanding." [Evening Standard (12 October 2000)]

That's a great way to describe the Poems on the Underground I've been seeing recently. There was a particular one about the moon that I liked. Unfortunately I can't remember nor find it. Here are other poems that you might come across on your otherwise mundane tube ride in London.

So on Saturday I went

So on Saturday I went to Toys 'R' Us for...ummm....let's call it 'research'. I think I tranformed into a 5 year old as soon as I stepped into the place.
"Look at that!"
"I want that!"
"How cool are they?!!"
But then the piece de resistance. Something I've wanted since childhood. Sylvanian Families. As a kid I wanted the whole lot of them. I wanted a whole village of them. All set up in the attic. A community of little collectibles living in the attic. The Cottontail family living next to the school run by Mr. and Mrs. Brambles. The Underwoods running the General Store. Sigh. Never did happen. But who knows, one day when I get my own house and I invite you around, I'll show you the attic, there may be a whole town up there.
