Picture Day (again)

Lousy picture of me.Picture day at work. I now present for your amusement the worst school picture ever taken of me.

I like the way I look like I'm in the middle of saying "So, are you really taking a picture?"

Getty Scenter

I went to the Getty Museum on Saturday. Lots of great works of art, and the grounds are pretty damn amazing- but why are the buildings so stinky? Walking into the buildings is like walking into the world's most beautiful armpit.

November 30

Today was the last day to write for National Novel Writing Month. I wrote less than half a book. It's terrible. I wouldn't want anyone to read it. I'm thinking of titling it "Eye of Argon II: The New Batch." So of course I've posted it. If you'd like a brief description of the book (other than "it sucks"): It's a everyday, slice of life kind of story that evolves into a science fiction mystery. It's like "The Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy," except less coherent and not at all entertaining. Go try and read it - I DARE YOU!

New pictures on the Denise page! See the mystery woman revealed to the world!

more of no results

continuing yesterday's theme: canned monkey. Tastes great with extracted cheese.

No hits for cranial patrol, lyrical flotsam, or harpoon dancers.

No results

While trying to find Google searches that return no results, I found this lovely cheese extractor.

No results for "painful pillows," "sinister flour," "bacon collage," or "genuine elbows."

September 27

nanowrimo.com is a web site that's trying to get people to write a 50,000 word novel during November, which they're calling "National Novel Writing Month." They got five novels two years ago, and 29 last year. This year, I decided to do it, even though I have no burning urge to tell a story. Just to get an idea of how much more writing I'd be doing, I checked out how many words there were on my site's longest text page.

Less than 650.


(This blurb has ninety words).

Me in 1990My work/school photo from 1990. Dig that cool TURTLENECK SHIRT that seems to merge seamlessly into the sweet FULL BEARD! Marvel at the PSUEDO-SUPERMAN HAIR!

....and, best of all- check out that attractive "nosebrow" between my eyebrows!

What a freak I was! Now, of course, I am nothing but handsome.

...and KROQ had a DJ named Kennedy...

Next time you hear the Linkin Park song "In The End," just before they get to the line "I put my trust in you," close your eyes and think "Jon Bon Jovi... Jon Bon Jovi..."

Britney- picture perfect

From the book "Britney Spears- The Illustrated Story", page 23:

Britney is incredibly photogenic- it's almost impossible to take a bad picture of her.

Also from page 23:

Notice that the quote said almost impossible...
