Hmmm…I’ve been so out of the loop, I don’t know what the “hot item” was this year, toywise… The Cabbage Patch Kid / Ninja Turtle / Power Ranger / Tamagotchi / Furby / Tickle Me Elmo of 2002?

Watching Terror of Mechagodzilla with Newtzilla asleep at my side, getting belly rubs… Dave loaned the DVD to me yesterday. It’s been a while since I’ve seen this one. A fun giant rubber monster show, certainly. Psychic powers, three monsters, space aliens and 70s clothes. Not too shabby.

I’m of a mind to curl up with my sweetie and watch Gamera movies.

EEK!! My gosh. That’s enough of that sort of talk!

Sasquatches on the Dinner Table?

The Issue
In a bid to provide a new revenue stream for Scottovia’s Agriculture industry, it has been suggested that sasquatches could be added to the menu.

  1. The fact is, the sasquatch population is out of control,” says Beef-Based Agriculture spokesperson Jazz Spirit. “We have to do something about them anyway, so why not market them as tasty snacks? We could have sasquatch kebabs, sasquatch pies, sasquatch-on-a-sticks–the possibilities are endless! Let’s not pass up this golden opportunity to provide a feast, if you will, for our economy.
  2. “I agree that something needs to be done about sasquatch over-population,” says random passer-by Miranda Jefferson, “but eating them? That’s kind of gross. Let’s just shoot the ones we have to and shovel their bodies into ditches like normal.”
  3. “I am shocked and appalled!” declared SPCA President Al du Pont. “If anyone needs to be culled, it’s us humans. The sasquatches were here first, remember? We need to take this as a sign to get our industry–agriculture in particular–to back off. The sasquatch is part of what makes Scottovia a great nation!”

#3 Accepted, of course.

Wow…I slept like a log last night…went to bed at 3, and didn’t awaken until the phone jangled me at 11. Usually, I’m up by at least 9ish. Bro says that it got cool again last night…but it doesn’t seem that brisk. Maybe the upper 50s. Not like that day midmonth when it hit the 40s. Just checked. He’s full of beans.

Ushering in either a brave new world or a spectacular hoax, a company linked to a religious sect that believes in space aliens announced Friday that it has produced the world’s first cloned baby. A healthy 7-pound girl, nicknamed Eve by scientists, was delivered by Caesarean section Thursday somewhere outside the United States, said Brigitte Boisselier, chief executive of Clonaid. Boisselier said the girl is an exact genetic copy of the American woman who gave birth to her.

Hollywood Florida is a stone’s throw from here…regarding the clone; I’m going to wait and see, but it smells of fibs to me currently.
