No, it isn't...and here's my not-so-funny story of why. I was telling this pal of mine, (who happens to be my computer guru person) about how i thought i should get the black one, since everything I own (including my bitter, snivelling, evil soul) is black. He poo-poohed this idea, assured me that t...

I will now illustrate my U2 dorkiness -- the reference is an inside joke. Steve Lillywhite produced U2's first three albums and the latest, which is their 14th. Hence, the "uno, dos, tres, catorce!" wow! thanks for that, heathalouise! yeah, basically, the subject was my little way of saying I got a...

this may seem like cheating, but the thing I most highly desire at this point is a lateral file for my home. even with online billing, we amass so much damn paperwork it's ridiculous. i mean, even buying the shredder and recycling the remains didn't help. aside from that, i'm big on assessing items ...

NOTE, TWO: one other thing. i mean in no way to detract from what's happening in indonesia/sumatra/india/somalia/thailand, btw...so sorry if this seems a bit crass.

i just spent so much time reading the eyewitness accounts on bbc that i needed a bit of a break. (sigh)

Glad you liked it, Liesbeth. You might want to try her first one, <i>Breath, Eyes, Memory</i> too. It's all of the style with no so much violence. The book after <i>Krik?Krak!</i>, <i>The Farming of Bones</i>, is a fictional account based on real historical events, and is, IMHO, just as heartbreakin...

Re: Tejas

Too bad the present lyrics are: "Doo doo da blah blah baa". That's a song by the Police. And from what I hear, Sting's a little short on sense of humor, copyright-wise. Surely there's a Cocteau Twins lyric you can "borrow"? Their catalog is top of the heap in the "Non-Lyric Lyrics" genre. Cracking ...

My big, squishy beauty is to be captured for all posterity?

I am...honored. ESPECIALLY cause it's Gunter Von Hagens.

Has anyone ever been to one of his exhibits ? I've always wanted to go...
