Happy Valentines Day (a little late)

This has nothing to do with Valentines day ... I just ... I .... words cannot describe it:

And now for something completely different...

For all those keeping track, I haven't been around in a long long while. You see, I was foolishly captivated by travel, and family, and 14 hour long Battlestar Galactica marathons.

But no more! I am back!! And to celebrate, you should all read this hilarious article about the deplorableness of the shrinking size of ladies' underwear ('Pants' to the British). Not that this article necessarily embodies my opinion on the stuff, but it is a highly amusing look at the shrinking size of the ladies' knickers.

This made me cry at the office:
'In other words, to break this right down, how many times this year have you suddenly, unexpectedly, had sex in a brightly lit room, with a hard-to-please erotic connoisseur? Exactly. On those kind of odds, you might just as well be keeping a backgammon board down there, to entertain a group of elderly ladies in the event of emergencies. It’s more likely to happen.'

The Golden Compass

I'm sure many of you have read the fabulous Phillip Pullman 'His Dark Materials' Trilogy, about two children who change the destiny of the universe. And likewise, I'm sure lots of you know that the first book, The Golden Compass, will be released as a major motion picture on December 7th (wooo!).

This movie, I've recently discovered, has a very shiny website though which you can reveal your own personal Daemon*!

Help my Daemon choose it's correct form before it settles by clicking on the box below and answering some questions about me!

*If you haven't read the books - the 'Daemon' is an external embodiment of the soul in the form of an animal, which all humans posses in one of the alternate universes that Phillip Pullman creates.

**If the pretty box above does not work, you can also link to my Daemon's profile here

Life should be more like Star Trek - part 5

Given how long my little 'Star Trek is coming' rant has held up, it seems evident that soon life will actually BE Star Trek. I'm thinking now all we have to do is pick characters. Personally, right now I'm leaning towards McCoy. I'm already pretty neurotic, and I'll just have to take to saying things like: My GOD man, I'm an Art Historian, not a magician!

But in all seriousness, our govenment has recently developed a cloaking device that actually seems to work. You all know what this means: we now have the technology to cloak our Romulan warbird. Of course, now all we need is a Romulan warbird.....

Unless we already have one, and it is cloaked. Oooooooh, that would be sneaky. I like it.

Seen one of these around lately?

Where have I been?

I have not posted in a while. I don't have a very good excuse for this: 'New Job'* and 'West Coast Swing Dance Conferences'** are a bit thin and pathetic (but true).

So, instead, I shall distract you with Theeees:
As the all-knowing CuteOverload webmaster says:

*No, I'm not going to tell you where I work on the internets, I like my job.
**What (totally kick ass) West Coast Swing Conferences, you ask? This one and this one!!

For those of you playing the "What the heck is West Coast Swing" game - watch this video - it is awesome:

Is this website aimed directly at my demographic or what? Does this render me helpless to their advertising? Should I be wearing some kind of tin-foil helmet just in case?!?

Cuteness on the Interwebs!

Question: do you frequently find yourself thinking that a daily dose of Cute Overload just isn't enough anymore?

Okay, I'm cheating, the answer to that question is implicit (and yes, this does mean that we all have serious mental-health problems). The question really is: do you want to live a normal, cute-free life, or do you want to become a hardened cuteness addict?

Okay okay, I'm still cheating. Just go to I can has Cheezburger, okay?
