Special Bacon

Friday, April 25th, 2014

There is a concept, called a Bacon Number, that is the number of jumps it takes to link an actor between themselves and Kevin Bacon.  But what do you call it, if all the linking actors are also named Kevin?

It only occurs to me to wonder, because I get special privs, sorta, at a certain event, through a chain of 3 Mikes.

Made me laugh anyways

I see Mabel has pooped on the rug again, and I’ve got my rubber glove on, and am checking out the bedroom, poop in hand, to see if there’s more to be found.

The poop rolls out of my hand, onto the floor, and bounces under the bed.

I say, “Oh shit!”

And then think just how literally appropriate it is to say, for once.


Flash Mob idea

The song: Level Up by Vienna Teng
The stage: Outdoor park/plaza

Everyone who sings has a turntable to stand on, one by one, people set them down, stand on them, and join in the song.

Pointless connections

Monday, September 16th, 2013

The Apple MacBook Pro comes with the infamous, “MagSafe” connector, whose purpose, as I understand it, is to prevent you from accidentally trying to walk away from your desk with your laptop still plugged in. Other than the early-version fire hazard, it sounds like a great idea.

But then you get to the new Apple Cinema Display, which comes with a single wire for connecting to your laptop, that splits into two separate connectors, one, the MagSafe break-away guy, and one a traditional-style-plug, the Thunderbolt. You have to use both (I could have sworn there was a way to get power over Thunderbolt, but maybe the Pro needs more juice than it can provide?), so you still end up with the potential disaster of one break-away cable, and one that requires careful hand-disconnecting. Seems silly to me.

Filing a FOIA

Thursday, August 1st, 2013

The other day, I dropped a hard drive and lost everything on it.  I was in despair, until it occurred to me, I can file a FOIA request with the NSA; they probably have my data backed up already.

Stretching the metaphor

Wednesday, July 17th, 2013

If we use the word, “cheese”, to describe the low-brow comedies I tend to enjoy, most especially the oeuvre of Brendan Fraser, the question becomes, is he a hard cheese, or a soft one?  One’s preference probably correlates to reason for attraction for Mr Fraser….hard body == hard cheese, easy comedy == soft cheese.

But I like his works for both reasons…is there a hard on the outside, soft on the inside cheese?

Whatever, you’ll have to watch all of George of the Jungle, Duddley Do-Right, Looney Tunes, and of course Blast From The Past, if I take over the world.

My Lobotomy

Wednesday, May 29th, 2013

Took out parts that made me sad

Put in parts that make me glad

Why on earth would I be mad

At the guy who lobotomized me?


Opened up my brain pan wide

Took a look at what’s wrong inside

And did something never tried


I wrote a poem

but it’s not done yet, so you can’t see it.

What is the current price of currants, and can I pay for them with this currency?
