Do not go on this site.

It's procrastination in it's purest form.  I know it's not just me who can sit, dead eyed, blank soul and an active index finger which just keeps pressing 'Deal' for a new game of Solitaire.  Well, this site is much, much worse.  I haven't actually explored any of the dozens of games on offer, bar one - 9 ball pool.  It's getting ridiculous. I must stop.

I've done many things to procrastinate from writing in the past wee while and it seems like every time I settle down, something distracts me - phone call, text, dog...  I've set myself a deadline on Sunday night.  I work so much better to deadlines.  I've even written it in red pen on my calendar.  Hopefully that will be the sufficient kick up the ass I need.

I've been listening to a bit of Morissette today and when listening to 21 Things I Want In A Lover I wondered how many conditions I would actually fill.


  1. Do you derive joy when someone else succeeds?
    Depends who but usually yes.  I can’t help but be bitter if I dislike the person.

  2. Do you not play dirty when engaged in competition?
    I play fair but may quietly sulk if comprehensively beaten.

  3. Do you have a big intellectual capacity?
    I believe so.

  4. But know that it alone does not equate wisdom?

  5. Do you see everything as an illusion?

  6. But enjoy it even though you are not of it?

  7. Are you both masculine and feminine?
    I do enjoy boypants, beer and football so we’ll say yes.

  8. Politically aware?

  9. And don't believe in capital punishment?
    Absolutely don’t believe.  But I believe if I was ever in the position of someone close to me being killed, I’d want the perpetrator swinging.  But that’s why we have a legal system.

  10. Do you derive joy from diving in and seeing that loving someone can actually feel like freedom?
    Complex question, Alanis.  I would have to go with yes.  I usually have to be pushed before ‘diving in’ though.

  11. Are you funny?
    I hope so.  Otherwise I’ve just been getting pity laughs my entire joke-making life.  Or they’re all laughing at me.

  12. A la self-deprecating?
    Only with good friends.

  13. Like adventure?
    I like what I consider adventure, but haven’t been in any treasure caves recently.

  14. And have many formed opinions?
    Too many.

  15. Are you uninhibited in bed?
    Can be.

  16. More than three times a week?
    Yes, more than 3 times a week – Would you like an estimate first,, Alanis?

  17. Up for being experimental?
    The extent of your ‘experimental’ intrigues me, so I’ll say yes.

  18. Are you athletic?
    I try but not really.

  19. Are you thriving in a job that helps your brother?

  20. Are you not addicted?
    Oh, I have many addictions.

  21. ...curious and communicative...
    Yes, yes.


Looks like 17/21.  I cannot believe that I am so bored that I accidentally created a meme.  Urgh.

Need big rock to head immediately please.

Why is it so easy to find newspaper articles online in TV drama?

They have this one, simple, clean looking page.  They type in what they're looking for and it's go go go.  The more ambitious dramas will have them trying two or three search terms to show that they're arduously working on the problem by battering a keyboard on this excellent search engine which always give them what they're looking for.  Some even go so far as to produce three or four links conveniently under each other which indicate a 'pattern' or whatever.

Anyway.  My point is - I do not have that search engine.  I have google  - Which I've always loved.  But it's let me down tonight.

Will I have to go to the library and look through microfische screen caps (no idea how to actually spell that, but I'm sure it's the term) of old newspapers?  And it was only a year ago!

June 5th 2007 a 68 year old woman in Scotland developed the bubonic plague which turned to pneumonic.  I want to know where etc but I cannot find a thing about it.  Except on wiki, which is where I found it in the first place.

The conclusion I'm slowly coming to is that wiki is lying to me - as is very possible being a mass-edited enclyclopedia.  This makes me sad.  I don't think it's lied to me before.

I don't think I'll ever be able to trust the internets ever again...

In other news, I watched Dr. Horrible's Singalong Blog last night - Bravo Whedon!  Once again you make me giddy, sad, involved, intrigued and left with the need to sing every song loudly and out of tune.  If you haven't seen it, I recommend you do at once.  That's a man who put his downtime during the WGA strike to good use.  It's still free online so there's really no excuse.  Unless you have a suck connection.  Then I recommend download.
