found out that the data is going ot be *really* late tonight, and we’re sending some of the servers out for service. Owie. I’m going to be here for a while.

good thing I have LJ, the net, and my book to keep me occupied while I wait!

Confirmed gourd-hunting plans with Robb, tomorrow, and maybe will see best in show, too.

not sure what other movies are out there… I guess I’ll find out after surfing some more!

Here we go.

Friday. Payday. Little Bro can’t get to get her this weekend, and C&D are going to Dizzy World for Cathi’s Birfday. Robb got his part of his project done, so maybe he and I can do something this weekend.. Upon reflection, Dave & Busters was quite fun, and not nearly as expensive as I’d assumed. Silly writing folder is still wacky, but it should be better by Sunday.

I want one of these psychotic hand-puppets! (see pic, if today is 10/20/00)

MMmmMM… also have to make some banana bread. yummy.

Getting Cathi a fountain, I think for her b’day…. not sure what sort yet, but the weekend will hook me up.

Ah, home at last. :)

Worked to a decent hour, then went out to dinner, and a few games of pool with Robb. He’s quite good… and I’m quite bad. My only saving grace was that he’s bd at getting the last ball in at 9-ball. The servers at dave and busters are quite attractive, and while paying the bill, one of the girls there offered to let me take home a pool ball. I accepted, then she said she was kidding. Wacky servers! Had a girl whose first night was tonight…she did good, but was semi-pokey. All of the folks there are quite professional and friendly. The food’s good.

Robbo pointed me at this site. Technical Virgin. It made me laugh , long and loud.


Just happened upon a true gem. It’s by Tony Bennett. For the Ladies. And theres a volume 2 out.

Tony sings songs that were written for women. Some are sweet. But his take on “Black and Blue” really got to me. It’s about a black woman who resents her lighter skinned peers for passing. The song is a classic, but most times I’ve heard it a couple verses were left out (Like in “This Land is Your Land”). The fact that it’s Tony Bennett singing makes it jarring in an unexpected way.

“Reds, browns and yellows are can get fellows but I’m stuck here alone and dark as the night. I’ve got no man to love but I have sorrows enough.
Whatever did I do to end up so black and blue.”


Thanks to the idiot actions of a dingus, Zoe has to be extra careful with her online persona. Part of that was shaving her friends’ list down to a bare minimum… 🙁 A pity that folks can’t just sit down and play nice, instead of scaring people… hearing more and more about net-meanies these days… Bugging Neko, earlier this week, and now this.

Bah. On behalf of the nice non-stalker folks… *hug*

Tentacle Rape Doesn’t Count

KUALA LUMPUR, Malaysia (Reuters) – Americans had sex most often this year, while older teens and young adults in Japan did it the least, a global survey by a British condom maker said Tuesday.
Americans were also the quickest to lose their virginity but it was the French who boasted of having the most sexual partners, said SSL International, which manufactures Durex condoms.

“On average, people globally are having sex 96 times a year,” said the company in its survey of 18,000 adults aged between 16 and 25.

“The Americans claim to be enjoying the most sex at 132 times a year followed by the Russians (122), the French (121) and the Greeks (115).”

The survey said young Japanese made love the least often at 37 times a year while Malaysians did it 62 times a year and the Chinese 69 times a year.

Most Dutch people said they learned about sex from their mothers, while the Americans attributed their knowledge to their fathers.

Most Italians said they were told about sex by their brothers and sisters while the French gave credit to their bed partners.

Americans were the earliest to have sex at an average age of 16.4 years, followed by Brazilians at 16.5 and the French at 16.8.

The French also seemed to have the most sexual partners, claiming an average of 16.7 each. The Greeks were second with 15 partners each, followed by the Brazilians at 12.5 and Americans at 11.8.

Indians were the most faithful to their partners, with 82 percent saying they have had sex with just one person.

The survey said 61 percent of those aged 16-20 and 52 percent of those aged 21-24 preferred condoms for contraception. Thirteen percent of respondents said they used no form of contraception at all while eight percent said they used natural methods.

The survey also said that most men thought American stars Madonna and Jennifer Lopez were the sexiest female celebrities.

Supermodel Cindy Crawford and actress Demi Moore were tied for second place. “Pretty Woman” star Julia Roberts ranked third.

“Titanic” star Kate Winslet and former Spice Girl Geri Haliwell were the least desirable, getting just two percent of votes, while tennis ace Steffi Graf was a notch better with three percent.

Welcome to my wall scrawls.
