Dopey Action/Adventure movie script point – When someone in the film says “This isn’t a movie, it’s real life!”

Chewy Chips ahoy are weak Soft-batch cookie imitations. (Soft batch is far superior, as far as I’m concerned). Don’t buy ’em, unless that’s what you’re looking for. I mistakenly eyeballed over the “chewy” definition. I like homemade cookies soft, cookies in a bag to be crunchy. I discovered this right before bed last night. I blame them for my non-memory of last night’s dreams.

Cool hubcap monsters (I’m spreading the link that’s been spread all over already bifurcated/mefi/boingboing and others)

Lovely precipitation last night and this morning… Hard to beat being curled up in bed while it’s raining. I also attribute my dream-memory loss to that, as I didn’t want to get up and commit the dream to memory.

I’m enjoying the fact that I have a straight-edge to shave with again… keeps those parts of my face that I prefer to be hairless baby-butt smooth.

Playwright Jim Sherman wrote this after Hu Jintao was named head of the Communist Party in China.

HU’S ON FIRST By James Sherman

(Scene: The Oval Office. Enter the National Security Adviser, Condoleezia Rice.)

George: Condi! Nice to see you. What’s happening?
Condi: Sir, I have the report here about the new leader of China.
George: Great. Lay it on me.
Condi: Hu is the new leader of China.
George: That’s what I want to know.
Condi: That’s what I’m telling you.
George: That’s what I’m asking you. Who is the new leader of China?
Condi: Yes.
George: I mean the fellow’s name.
Condi: Hu.
George: The guy in China.
Condi: Hu.
George: The new leader of China.
Condi: Hu.
George: The Chinaman!
Condi: Hu is leading China.
George: Now whaddya’ asking me for?
Condi: I’m telling you Hu is leading China.
George: Well, I’m asking you. Who is leading China?
Condi: That’s the man’s name.
George: That’s who’s name?
Condi: Yes.
George: Will you or will you not tell me the name of the new leader of China?
Condi: Yes, sir.
George: Yassir? Arafat is in China? I thought he was in the Middle East.
Condi: That’s correct.
George: Then who is in China?
Condi: Yes, sir.
George: Yassir is in China?
Condi: No, sir.
George: Then who is?
Condi: Yes, sir.
George: Yassir?
Condi: No, sir.
George: Look, Condi. I need to know the name of the new leader of China. Get me the Secretary General of the U.N. on the phone.
Condi: Kofi?
George: No, thanks.
Condi: You want Kofi?
George: No.
Condi: You don’t want Kofi.
George: No. But now that you mention it, I could use a glass of milk. And then get me the U.N.
Condi: Yes, sir.
George: Not Yassir! The guy at the U.N.
Condi: Kofi?
George: Milk! Will you please make the call?
Condi: And call who?
George: Who is the guy at the U.N?
Condi: Hu is the guy in China.
George: Will you stay out of China?!
Condi: Yes, sir.
George: And stay out of the Middle East! Just get me the guy at the U.N.
Condi: Kofi.
George: All right! With cream and two sugars. Now get on the phone.
Condi (On the phone): Rice, here.
George: Rice? Good idea. And a couple of egg rolls, too. Maybe we should send some to the guy in China. And the Middle East. Can you get Chinese food in the Middle East?

I’m happy that next week only has three work days… I feel a minor headache seed forming behind my right eye… I hope that it passes before it blossoms.

A well-written New York Times piece on today’s “ideal” feminine form. The article covers not only image, but also eating disorders and how size affects the menstrual cycle as well.

As Dr. Rose E. Frisch, professor emeritus at the Harvard School of Public Health, points out in “Female Fertility and the Body Fat Connection”, “Something so small as a five-pound weight loss or gain around the threshold weight can turn menstrual cycles on or off.”

The brain says no to producing the hormones needed for ovulation, Dr. Frisch says, because “underweight women do not have the relative fatness necessary to have a viable infant.”
Good to see this in the media.
