Whole lotta labia.
Just a few notes:|
The Ig Nobel Prizes for the year have been awarded. Winners are here. My very favorite is the Chemistry prize which went to two groups of researchers. The first discovered that Coke makes an effective spermicide. The second discovered that it didn't. It's not as good as my favorite of the past winners, the one about necrophiliac homosexuality in mallard ducks.
The Benevolent Dictator just created a piece of chemistry herself. I don't know where she's been sneaking out at night but apparently they fed her curry and beer. Good God. Steve carried it straight out to the dumpster. Do not pass go, do not put in the diaper pail, do not collect $200. The good news is that now I don't have to pluck my eyebrows. I will, however, have to pencil them back in where they were melted away.
The last two mornings have been gorgeous crystal clear fall mornings. Especially beautiful on the farm. A little marred by the McMansion going up across the hill but hopefully they'll put in good landscaping. For now I'll just turn to the left and look out over the back pastures. This morning I just wanted to turn on "Jessica" and listen for hours.'
I have watched way too much "Bones" in the last few days. Good news is that I'm about halfway through with season 3 and so should be wrapping up tomorrow. I'm enjoying it. And Mr. Boreanaz isn't as boring as I'd expected him to be. It's not as fun as when he was a puppet and his nose came off, but beggers can't be choosers, eh?
