Quote of the Week:

"An industrial capitalist society that does not recognize ecological limits but only perpetual economic expansion and has the profit motive as driver, will eventually consume and destroy itself."

"But we will all be taken down with it."

Knowing that kids eight years younger than me are being sent to Iraq didn't do it, but learning that Amber Lee Ettinger is younger than I am finally made me feel old. Again.

eventually.. I'll find a routine or something.. but not sure when that'll happen...
but basically.. I've updated fledgling again... there should be slightly regular updates for another week or so... then I might get lazy again...

maybe I should get one of my housemates to just literally poke me until I update it.
... or not...

Things I ate, photographed and videod today

I've never been very good at "What I did today" blogs. But today was one of those days that pretty much requires recounting.

Exhibit 1

Crickets on the farm

Crickets on the farm. Each tub yields a third of a kilo of crickets every two months (that's $6 worth)

Exhibit 2

Cricket, farm style

Farmed cricket up close and personal (this one is male)

Exhibit 3

Packaged Crickets

Crickets packaged for sale at the Cricket farm.

Exhibit 4

Crickets on my plate

Crickets on my plate (also sampled breaded crickets)

Verdict: Scrumptous

Exhibit A


Crocodile on the farm

Exhibit B

Crocodile curry

Crocodile in my curry. Also sampled: Crocodile salad, Crocodile steak, Crocodile soup, Crocodile spring roll and raw Crocodile (with wasabi)

Verdict: Suprisingly fabulous

Extra Bonus Exhibit XYZ

How to make rice paper, audio by deaddragoncarcass (to fall, like rain)

Happy World Poetry Day!
Here's a nice one by Mary Elizabeth Coleridge in honour of another special day.

Good Friday in my Heart

Good Friday in my heart! Fear and affright!
My thoughts are the Disciples when they fled,
My words the words that priest and soldier said,
My deed the spear to desecrate the dead.
And day, Thy death therein, is changed to night.

Then Easter in my heart sends up the sun.
My thoughts are Mary, when she turned to see.
My words are Peter, answering, ‘Lov’st thou Me?’
My deeds are all Thine own drawn close to Thee,
And night and day, since Thou dost rise, are one.

Coming soon: updates from my life, with pictures!

Thanks, Meg. I admit it: I mostly wanted comments reinstated so people could tell me how awesome my coolness relief kits post is. If you want to do a poll on this, that's fine.

Also, we were looking at a bottle of curry powder today. As an ingredient, it listed "Nut Meg." We thought of you. See you in July.

O, nevermind. I made them work again....

Comments have been reinstated.

- maybe someone turned them off on purpose?

I think we should put this up or a a vote. If some people don't like comments (I, myself, might be in that boat) then we should get rid of them. Anyone up for making a poll?

Comments beast

Odd, isn't it? Why, just last night I used the comments feature to remark how clever you had been with your "MCC coolness relief" post. And then in a matter of hours the comments just up and leave?

I am left with only one solution - the COMMENTS BEAST must have come and taken them away!

I can't get the comments feature to work. SASHA? maybe you should give it a try.

I have to run - back to work after a battle with a nasty FLU BEAST.

  1. Once again, I am reminded that if you buy something with a coupon from CVS, then return it, they give you all your money back in cash, even the amount that you saved by the coupon. Bottle of St. Ives Face Apricot Scrub by bottle of St. Ives Apricot Scrub, I will come by unearned wealth.

    And this occurred even after I told the clerk that I had used a coupon so I shouldn't get that dollar back. But seriously, CVS, if you want the dollar, just ask.

  2. But how is CVS going to ask without the commenting function? I feel like this happens every six months or something. Meg, can you fix this again?
  3. Leonard Cohen touring. But only Europe and Montreal. Don't tell K-S, as she'll want to go.

  4. Lineup is out.

Boys with unisex names
“Researchers have studied men with cross-gender names like Leslie,” Dr. Evans explained. “They haven’t found anything negative — no psychological or social problems — or any correlations with either masculinity or effeminacy. But they have found one major positive factor: a better sense of self-control. It’s not that you fight more, but that you learn how to let stuff roll off your back.”

Googling great phrases from poetry
Have you ever wandered how some of you favorite poetic phrases are being creatively used, abused and confused across the internet? I have.

But I'm pleased to tell you the wait is over. Today, in a dramatic epiphany I discovered this simple solution:"slouching+toward""roads+diverged""go+gentle"


Slouching toward Rivendell
Feline Fridays: "I will not go gentle into that dark carrier!"

But don't take my word for it! Choose two words from your favorite poem, stick them in google and see the a-MAZ-ing results for yourself.

Best Improv Everywhere Ever
Improv Everywhere performs an impromptu musical in front of a stunned (and eventually tickled) Mall food court audience. Until security shows up...

Friday, March 07, 2008

Like many school-age children in Syria, Serena is forced to wear this totally dork-ass tie by her mom who never understands her and doesn't even think about how much it makes her look like a total loser. God mom, this is so not cool.

MCC coolness relief kits can help. Serena will receive a pack of cigarettes, a copy of Seventeen magazine and a black eyeliner pencil.
