Nice.
I believe that banking institutions are more dangerous to our liberties than standing armies. If the American people ever allow private banks to control the issue of their currency, first by inflation, then by deflation, the banks and corporations that will grow up around [the banks] will deprive the people of all property until their children wake-up homeless on the continent their fathers conquered. The issuing power should be taken from the banks and restored to the people, to whom it properly belongs. —Thomas Jefferson, 1802

Now while I really do get a kick out of working in a building mostly taken up by Sandoz Pharmaceuticals, I don't like that there was a very strange smell in the lower levels of the building this morning. There was some sort of big chemical delivery truck sitting outside this morning & it really smelled a lot like someone was developing pictures. It doesn't smell at all up where I am, but it *is* a little disconcerting....

Perhaps they're just refining their formula for LizardDogMonkeyMen.

Elegant insults
I usually hate these sorts of things, but language holds a certain *dork-tastic* fascination for me and some of these had me laughing out loud. There was a short period when my college major was semiotics before I realized how worthless it would be. I have great admiration and respect for those whose command of the language exceeds that of the "average" troglodyte flailing about around these days (and I include myself in this evaluation. For this reason, I *adore* Oscar Wilde (either the wallpaper goes or I do), the old and jaded Mark Twain (think letters from the earth era) and the surprisingly witty and intelligent (for a statesman), Winston Churchill. Hope some of you enjoy....

The exchange between Churchill & Lady Astor: She said, "If you were my
husband I'd give you poison," and he said, "If you were my wife, I'd drink it."

A member of Parliament to Disraeli: "Sir, you will either die on the
gallows or of some unspeakable disease." "That depends, Sir," said
Disraeli, "on whether I embrace your policies or your mistress."

"I have never killed a man, but I have read many obituaries with great pleasure."
Clarence Darrow

"He has never been known to use a word that might send a reader to the
dictionary." - William Faulkner (about Ernest Hemingway). I *loathe* Hemingway and this is one of the few topics I will stick to...try and change my mind...do ya feel lucky, punk?

"Poor Faulkner. Does he really think big emotions come from big words?"
- Ernest Hemingway (about William Faulkner) What a pathetic hack, just shoot yourself and put the rest of us out of your misery....sorry, I *really* hate Hemingway, mostly due to the fact tha

"Thank you for sending me a copy of your book; I'll waste no time
reading it."
Moses Hadas

"He can compress the most words into the smallest idea of any man I know."
Abraham Lincoln

"I didn't attend the funeral, but I sent a nice letter saying I approved
of it." - Mark Twain

"He has no enemies, but is intensely disliked by his friends." - Oscar
Wilde

"I am enclosing two tickets to the first night of my new play; bring a
friend.... if you have one." - George Bernard Shaw to Winston Churchill

"Cannot possibly attend first night, will attend second... if there is
one." - Winston Churchill, in response.

"I feel so miserable without you; it's almost like having you here." -
Stephen Bishop

"He is a self-made man and worships his creator." - John Bright

"I've just learned about his illness. Let's hope it's nothing trivial."
- Irvin S. Cobb

E. Leonard

"They never open their mouths without subtracting from the sum of human
knowledge." - Thomas Brackett Reed

"In order to avoid being called a flirt, she always yielded easily."
Charles, Count Talleyrand

it?" - Mark Twain

"His mother should have thrown him away and kept the stork." - Mae West

rather than illumination." - Andrew Lang (18 44-1912)

The Letter Arrived!!
Whoo-hoo!

As of January 1, 2008, I will be an official employee of Houghton Mifflin!! As I imagine many of you don't know, they bought Greenwood (current company) earlier in the year &, what with all the talk of "the merger", I was a *little* concerned about my job. Well, the letter arrived and I'm really more relieved than I thought I would be!!

Time to celebrate....cocoa & a scary book!!

Can you believe this isn't more of a big deal?

Hey, how about everyone go out and show your appreciation for all the thankless shit the women in this world put up with! Girls, how about we all just *try* to be nice to one another for a day?

Somebody, please make them stop!!!
This is getting *really* ridiculous!

http://www.bloody-disgusting.com/news/7703

There are *so* many creatures, legends, stories in native mythologies that would scare the pants off of people (if done well) and they go 'round and 'round with crap like this! Not to mention the fact they *still* haven't really made a good Lovecraft movie...

End of a cycle, indeed.

Last night, I had a dream about the restorative qualities of bees and a ghost town where there were so many bees, it looked like a fog (I like my coffee like I like my women, eh?). I remember being worried Seth would get stung. The thing was the whole dream was animated & I remember in the dream thinking that was strange.

Anybody ever have animated dreams?

I sometimes get images from this place for work. Go check out this gallery, especially if you're interested at all in the history of medicine, pretty cool.
