truant in a school of fish

for the record, i just opened up Yahoo & at the top center was the line "Ashton Kutcher's social experiment"--which gave me the willies.

but a quick school of little shiny fish awaits thee:

the tourist has been updated with DC Voyage Part the First (or, our heroine & the wind-up bird) & Part the Second (or, Monuments & Swimming Pools). hold your breath for Part the Third (or, How many times can jenn see HA in a week.)

Neil Gaiman's pointed out some great photos of Ray Bradbury & an article on my favorite kind of notebook, the ultimate in artistic street cred (though i s'pose if they're writing articles on in Kentucky, that might not be true anymore. but still.)

& at long last, Japan's invented a robot suit. now the future can begin already. it's 2005, where the hell's my flying car?

& in a moment of complete & utter geek giddiness, i learned that our own dear Scorpy--er, Wayne Pygram--played Governor Tarkin in Episode III. ah, the weird little world i live in.

just wait till i get started on the Heinleiners.

& it occurred to me recently that this fish here has allowed me to do something i've always, always wanted to do:

generate interest by just being me.

so thanks for fulfilling a dream, little fishies.

12 little fish:

I've been tempted by the moleskin in the past but have yet to break down and buy one.

I have to admit that I just assumed that everyone knew that the last 3 years the entire American culture has been controlled by Ashton Kutcher and his evil minions.

I'm looking forward to hearing your thoughts on Heinlein...or the Heileiners as it were. I read my first Heinlein about 5 years ago and was hooked. Whether you're for or agin him I'll wait with baited breath!

And I'm glad you are you. Its been fun getting to know the you that is you.

carl v: the moleskine is definitely worth possessing, if only once.

ashton kutcher must not remain in control. intelligentsia (sp?) unite!

& i'm glad you get a kick out of the world through fish-eyes--i certainly do.

JP: soon, my pet, soon...i have to finish the book first.
