I had an idea for an invention this morning while I was repeatedly hitting the snooze. You know how you can have a few portable phones on the same line, well I thought it would be cool to have a few snooze/off buttons on the same alarm clock. There'd be a wireless connection but basically you would wake up whether you fell asleep in bed or on the couch.
For the record, I thought of this because I was too lazy to roll from one side of the bed to the other to hit the snooze.

Earlier this week I realized I had reached the one week mark of not posting so I've been spending the past few days thinking about what I could post about. It's not like I don't have anything, it's just that the fun stuff doesn't make for much of a story and I don't really want to blabber on about how frustrating my research is any more than I already do. Anyway, I think I had a dream about what I was going to blog about last night and I think it was some Seinfeldian rant about how I like cows but I also like to eat cows and how that's not hypocritical. Although my dream from the night before about having to jump out of a window in some mansion because men who were there to rob the place and possibly murder the friend who owned the house were chasing me was a much better dream. I had to weigh hiding and possibly being found against jumping out a window and running across a yard where they could see me and climbing a fence to escape the guys with guns and the attack dogs that weren't so much guarding the house. I have no idea where that dream came from unless I'm writing an action movie in my head.
Anyway, I did purchase some books today which is dangerous because it becomes very expensive for me. I bought Cryptonomicon and the second book in the Baroque cycle by Neal Stephenson (I'm currently reading the first and will purchase the third at a location that might still have it for 30% off), the new Terry Pratchett book and the new Jon Stewart book. I realized as I was walking up to the cashier that this selection totally labels me as a lefty science geek. As if the bag of books in each hand as I left the store wasn't enough to do that. Well, it'd give you the geek part at least. My t-shirt would give you the specifically science geek part though. Now I just need a Kerry Edwards pin for my messenger bag (see wish list. please, i'm poor and I want a messenger bag. :D) and I won't have to go book purchasing to advertise my sexy geekery.
As a close I would like to thank the michigan wolverines for pulling out that win against Illinois today, I know it was such a nerve wracking game, no wonder they actually led at one point. Their mascot is the Illini, for god's sake, you can't take them seriously.

It totally matches my placemats
The photo link for today shall serve as my post. It's fairly self explanatory and fairly cool, as far as flora goes.

because nothing else is going on
Watching Jay and Silent Bob Strike Back on Comedy Central at 8pm is a much different experience from watching J&SB on Comedy Central at 1am. (Aside from the falling asleep on the couch that sometimes happens when I watch movies late at night. It's my goal to fall asleep on as many couches as possible.) Last night the unedited version was on and now, well, a heavily edited version is on. If you recognize that TV stations reserve programs with more adult themes and language for 10pm and after you know what kind of editing we're talking about. There's a swear every 40 seconds so if you haven't seen the movie before you might think you were going crazy or losing your hearing. Plus hole chunks of scenes are removed. Again, if you haven't seen the movie you should be having the same reaction people had when TBS announced it would show Sex and the City episodes, full length, on week nights.
Don't ask me why you haven't seen this movie yet. I can only imagine you aren't a Kevin Smith fan or you protested watching a Kevin Smith movie that was essentially masturbation on film. (Much like you probably protested watching Jersey Girl because he was going "mainstream." I haven't seen it yet but I would watch it for curiosity's sake if nothing else.) I mean, don't get me wrong, I like the movie (obviously, I'm watching it) but the whole movie is basically seeing if he can sell a loose plot around his two most popular characters from previous movies, slapping in a cameo every 6 minutes (not to mention his wife in a large, if mostly silent, role). I think I even remember Smith saying something like that himself, that he wanted to see what the studios would let him pass as film.
Anyway, you should see this movie. But I wouldn't recommend watching an edited version the first time.
