the truth about brassica

ok so two items today.

Firstly, I just read this really odd news item today indicating that our last president bush, is a bit of a religious crackpot. News item here. Now I am sure that some of these incidents might be taken out of context, but what really bothers me is that I had to read about this 6 years after it occurred. What happened to my liberal media EH???

and now the second item. My dear friend olus. I'm so glad you read my blog. But when you come in and comment on multiple entries in one sitting, I just can't individually respond to them. So congrats, you get this entry (in honor of authoring the 100th (technically the 97th - 104th comment). So in chronological order, here are my responses to your responses:

Olus on 'man caves':
Are man caves only for less evolved males? Is there a requirement for mindless male entertainment? Would a serenity room have mindless female entertainment? Could a serenity room support both males and females? Inquiring minds want to know!

I know I'm a hippie when it comes to less than subtle gender-related segregation, but there are straight males who appreciate serenity.

Yes, my dear friend, you caught me. I was perpetuating a nasty gender-based stereotype that a man doesn't want a serenity room and instead wants a football room. But please note, only one of these rooms has beer.

olus on Johnny Depp
I agree. I've seen all but two of those movies and parts of another. I've found that people either really like him or really don't like him. Not a lot of in-betweens. Were you a 21 Jump Street fan? I saw pieces of it occasionally, but I didn't get into JD until his movies.

P.S. The Alamo Drafthouse sometimes has good popcorn. I think they are opening one in Winchester, VA.
Dude, I love good popcorn. I am ambivalent about Johnny Depp movies. Does this make them art?

olus on cat toys (and bagels):
Yeah, I can't imagine a lot of good coming from freezing a bagel.

The cat toy you bought reminds me of a "fish in a fish bowl" type cat toy I saw at Petsmart the other day. At first it seemed really cute, but then I realized it would be a bad idea if I had a cat and planned on having a real fish tank down the road.

We have a betta (Julio) in a bowl. Every once in a while I catch our cat up to her fuzzy armpits in the water, trying to eat the fish. I keep having to hide Julio around the house.

olus on thinking before speaking:

Well, thinking before you speak probably does come with a bit of practice. Being somewhat of a loner and insecure as a child I spent a lot of time having conversations in my head before they actually occurred. I think this probably led to getting into the habit of thinking about what I'm going to say beforehand. For practice you could try re-reading your posts/emails a couple of times before they are posted/sent and think about, "Will this have the intended outcome? Does this get my message across?"

Well, the good news is that when I read this, I went back and edited this post before publishing. This is good thinking, I'll try it.

olus on unsolicited advice:
That is a little odd. Your opinion somehow rates higher than her own in getting a gift for her..acquaintance..friend? It's not like she can fall back on the ol' "I don't know what kind of gift to get a woman".

hah! you know, I was just hoping that my opinion only reinforced her own latent thoughts that her gift was lame. I hope. cause that was an ugly wallet. And wait a minute! Why can't a woman not know what to get another woman?! you sir, are guilty of whatever it was you accused me of in that previous entry.

olus on the dangers of motorcycles:
Yeah, I knew a guy who used to ride a motorcycle. Now he's a zombie and a slave to a wizard. Be cautioned!

oh noes!

olus on being discontent with one's career:
Yeah, welcome to the era of the lowest common denominator, otherwise known as "The Death of Excellence." If and when I become burned out working with computers and people who pretend to know how to use them, I'll probably become a Chef after I kill somebody with my thumb.

sadly my friend, I think the end is near.

Thank you for reading my odd thought and responding to them. I hope you don't mind the post.
