I'm trying desperately to finish up at work at a decent hour so I'll make this fast. M. had passed this along this link to me as an example of creative blogging:
I *love* his doodles! :D I need to explore this site some more, but for now I thought I'll pass on the url. Check it out. You won't be sorry.

Oh, and I saw War of the Worlds yesterday with my friend S. I loved this movie. When I returned home, I popped in the DVD of the original for comparison, and then watched Signs because I wanted to keep on the same theme. I think the newer version is a wonderful tribute to the original film as well as succeeding as a fantastic film in its own right. I could say a lot about it, but I don't want to spoil it for those who haven't seen this new Spielberg film or the original version (and there are those out there who haven't seen the original). ;)

Now if only Peter Jackson can do with King Kong what Spielberg accomplished with War of the Worlds, I'll be an even happier (and quite impressed) woman. :)

My heartfelt thoughts and prayers go out the people in London, to their friends & family, and to my friends in the UK. I watched & listened on the news last night as some of the survivors told their stories. (((hugs)))

Abbott & Costello, Farscape-style

John: Alright, here's the thing. I think we ambush the escort, we hit him with a rock, and we take his belt.
D'Argo: That's your plan?
John: Yeah.
D'Argo: To hit him with a rock! When they have these like shield things?
John: The shields work against pulse energy. They don't work against other things. We saw the guy get burned.
D'Argo: Yeah, but not by a rock.
John: Alright let me lay this out for you. Fire is thermal energy. Thermal energy is like kinetic energy. Rock has kinetic energy. Ergo a rock will work.
D'Argo: Oh, okay, okay, I'm with you. I have just one small little question. Who is Lou Costello?
John: Abbott & Costello. We've been over this before.

Forgive me for the quote post. I was so excited when I saw the clip here. Can't wait until the new Fall season! (though I'm still not sure on which syndicated network I'll see it in my area)
Music Lyric Meme: Part Two

My original post is here.

Rule #4 of the game states: Post the answers to the ones people guessed correctly. A couple of days later, post the first two lines of the ones no one got and get people to guess again.

So I guess it's about time I repost the next lines! :)

1. She lives in this house over there, has her world outside it
2. Is there a time for keeping your distance, a time to turn your eyes away?
3. High, higher than the sun, you shoot me from a gun; I need you to elevate me here
4. Somewhere there's speaking; it's already coming in; Oh and it's rising at the back of your mind
5. I can see it; I can feel it rushing in my veins; I don't like it, I don't hide it; See it in my face
6. Today is gonna to be the day that they're gonna throw it back to you; By now you should have some how realized what you gotta do
7. Innocent, and in a sense, I am Guilty of the crime that's now in hand
8. You burden me with your questions; You'd have me tell no lies
9. I don't know; I don't know which side I'm on; I don't know my right from left or my right from wrong
10. I'm not afraid of anything in this world; There's nothing you can throw at me
that I haven't already heard
11. I spend the night in a chair thinking she'll be there, but she never comes
12. Stand up; You've got to manage; I won't sympathize anymore
13. Father wears his Sunday best; Mother's tired, she needs a rest
14. When I'm walking I strut my stuff yeah I'm so strung out; I'm high as a kite I just might stop to check you out
15. Baby love, sometimes it's hard for me to tell you what I'm thinking of So I try to find a way that I can show you love What you mean to me
16. If blood will flow when flesh and steel are one, Drying in the colour of the evening sun
17. What's wrong with the world mama; People livin' like they ain't got no mamas
18. Like the latest fashion, Like a spreading disease; The kids are strappin' on their way to the classroom, Getting weapons with the greatest of ease
19. Things are gonna change and not for better; Don't know what it means to me
but it's hopeless, hopeless...
20. The wind was a torrent of darkness among the ghastly trees, the moon was a ghostly galleon tossed upon the cloudy seas
21. If I, I get to know your name, Well if I, could trace your private number, baby
22. I can't believe the news today; Oh, I can’t close my eyes and make it go away
23. See the people walking down the street; Fall in line just watching all their feet
24. Don't move, Don't talk out of time; Don't think, Don't worry, Everything's just fine, Just fine
25. All I can say is that my life is pretty plain; I like watchin the puddles gather rain

It's Fixed!

I made a change in the settings, and the blog posts have repositioned themselves accordingly! Hurrah!
