Space Rocks and Axes To Grind

Upsetting the Universe
Or...Why we should kill all the lawyers.

Hunger Swag...
Hunger means bling.

Some of the items scarfed up by the compassionate crusaders:

# Hugo Boss suits, valued between $800 and $1,000 each

# XM satellite radios and subscriptions worth $500

# Gibson guitars costing $2,000 each

# Bertolucci watches, valued between $1,500 and $6,000

In all, a poverty-fighting rock star worth his salt could walk away with as much as $12,000 hunger relief loot, the AP said.

Does Smoking Pot in the Girl's Room Count As An Activity...?
What you did in high school really might matter later in life.

"We found that, controlling for gender and education level, higher adolescent IQ and greater activity level were each independently associated with a lower risk for dementia and mild cognitive impairments. Conversely, those who were lower on the IQ continuum and who participated in fewer activities in high school had a higher risk of cognitive impairments."

Friday, July 24, 2005--I can relate. Swap gaming for writing and you have my sich.

PvP is pretty cute too.

Who do I have to sleep with to get decent orgasm around here?

Stoopid Magnetic Ribbons...
Lee Goldberg hates fan fiction and whips it on a regular basis. Me, I loath those stupid little "support the troops" et al car ribbons--probably purchased at Wal-Mart and made in China. Here's another swipe in their direction.

Yeah, we all got our axes to grind.

Got in a few more thousand over the weekend, although nothing yesterday. Finally wrote up the required three critiques for Critters. Ugh. Talk about "phoning it in." There was a time, I'd spend hours on a critique, pointing out every little weird turn of a phrase and typo. Now, it's all I can do to must the interest to say, "It worked/didn't work." Bleh.

Anyway, today, between avoiding heat stroke and doing laundry, more on book two.
