A Big Drip

Funny thing. I wanted to try out some new things adding cayro syrup to my drip photography. I was going to try to get the syrup to try to add surface tension to the drippity drops to make longer stringy things, but in the end, I pretty much did what I did the last few times. The problems were the same too. It's the drip rig that's causing the most trouble. I'm using a soda bottle with a hole in the bottom. I've been adjusting the cap to change the speed of drips, but it usually ends up either on (too fast) or off (no drips). Feh. I guess I need to rebuild from the bottom up. Still. I got a whole poopload of shots. They just finished downloading, so I'll go see if any turned out ok. Check my flicker for updates if you're interested.

Plan Your Vacations Accordingly

Well, this raises more questions than it answers:

Orange dots = more single women than men
Blue dots = more single men than women

It says it's from the National Geographic Magazine, but I don't get that anymore, and I couldn't find it on their website, so I'm not completely convinced. However, I saw it on the internets, so it's got to be true, right?

So what's up with the man-heavy west coast eh? And what did the east coast do with all their guys? And for crying out loud, New England's at least got spots of blue over there, but the south looks like they got rid of all their men. Spooky I tells ya.

Down the Stream of Consciousness Without a Paddle

Randomness of my life:

  • I picked the 'make me happy' class, and I'm really loving it. I'm naturally in over my head, but it's in a good way. I'm spending nearly the entire weekend on the material and having a great time. I hope I leave time for the rest of my other stuff
  • I simply love Simon and Garfunkel. I think Paul Simon is perhaps my favoritest of all singer/songwriters. Absolutely the bee's knees. However. I stumbled onto the 2004 reunion concert album and... well... I'll be charitable and say they might have needed a little more rehearsal time... Like a lot more rehearsal time. And I know I'm biased, but it was mostly Art. Poor, poor Art.
  • That being said, I would have loved to be there.
  • Was that last point deserving of its own bullet?
  • I'm getting really close to post #1000 on this here blog. I was going to try to think of a way to celebrate or something, but I've missed every other blogoversary-type milestone, so I figure I'll probably forget about this one, too.
  • Seriously. I'm on 997 or something.
  • I can't believe Molly Ringwald's parents forgot about her birthday.
  • It's even more unbelievable that she ended up with that big dim hunk-dude.
  • Then again, she was pretty messed up, too.
  • I despise what CNN has become, but I flipped it on this morning really quickly to see that Rosie O'whatsherface thinks that there were explosives rigged in one of the WTC buildings.
  • Dear lord.
  • That's just awful on so many levels.
  • level 1 - I understand that some people need coping mechanisms to deal with the idea that we live in a world that seems to be very random and very dangerous, but when did Rosie's nutjob conspiracy theories become news?
  • level 2 - Is Rosie a structural engineer now? I think she should stay a comedienne. She's good at that.
  • level 3 fighters only can have 30 hit points unless there's something special about 'em.
  • Or at least they could the last time I played.
  • That was more than ten years ago.
  • Rosie the Riveter I might trust, but that Rosie, no thanks. And I used to like her.
  • That was also about ten years ago.
  • Actually, I still think she's funny.
  • Did I mention that I was working really hard this entire weekend?
  • Yeah, I think I did.
  • I worry now that you don't believe me.
  • Because I highly value your opinions about me.
  • Oh, you anonymous denizens of the intertubes, don't think me a liar.
  • Even though I am.
  • I like how my tags are completely useless and run miles and miles down the side of the blog. That makes me smile.
  • What are the odds of my getting more "Molly Ringwald" posts?
  • Ok, I think I've abused the good graces of the bullet point format as much as possible.
  • And I need to get back to work.
  • Did you actually read all of this?
  • Tagging this is going to be fun
  • You're procrastinating, too, aren't you?
  • Get back to work.
