A high school murder mystery, if only we were actually as smooth and smart as we thought we were at the time.

Seattle's Best gingerbread latte
Tastes like gingerbread, not gingerbread-flavored sugar sauce. If you could catch the gingerbread man and turn him into caffeinated creamy broth, then top it with whipped cream and sprinkles and a tiny little still-soft gingerbread man mini-me, you'd have this. Beats the ever living snot out of the gingerbread latte at Starbucks, at Tullys, at every other coffee place I've tried one so far.

ipod nano
In the story in my head, the ipod nano came about because the people responsible for the ipod shuffle were thrown into the deepest dungeon on the Apple campus, there to rot until they could turn a pile of discarded ipod parts into a product that actually had some redeeming value. They will win design awards and shares in the company, which will then be taken away by a horrible little imp unless they can guess his 128-bit ASCII password.

Utopia by St. Thomas More in ~1518
More's masturbatory fantasies about how great a nation could be if composed of perfect christian communists. Around page 90 I threw the book across the room for lack of anything better to do with it.

Current Mood: irritated

Five Flower Fairy Tea
It was indeed flowery, but I was hoping for the taste equivalent of the pressed fairy books. it didn't taste of fairies at all.

Do Androids Dream of Electric Sheep? -- Philip K Dick
Stupid people decide their stupid computers have souls.
Their stupid computers decide souls are stupid.

Just watch Bladerunner (Director's Cut, please).

A Deepness in the Sky
Intricate hard sci-fi plot wrapped up with a cheap Hollywood climax.


Vernor Vinge writes endings almost as well poorly as Niel Stephenson.

Since McDonald's is accepting credit cards, I'm keeping my fingers crossed that they'll adopt the slogan, "Eat now, pay later." At least the irony would be delicious.

Every awful thing you've ever heard about it is true.

antiquarian's review of the all-gluten bread from Atkins
This isn't such a bad bread substitute! On the other hand, I can see how with a slight change of artificial flavoring, it could also be a meat substitute.

Grandma's Hoerner's Old-Fashioned Applesauce (with cinnamon)
This tastes like what my mom would make every year we lived in Iowa. It actually belongs in a mason jar. This is not just a marketing ploy.

Mosquitoes are metallic, iridescent, stripey, and enchantingly angular. Flies look nasty as heck; it's the way they're always rubbing their hands together.

The Moon is a Harsh Mistress - Robert Heinlein
One man's masterbatory libertarian fantasies, but good science fiction had to start somewhere.

Heinz Tomato Ketchup
...Contains Upside-Down Ketchup. You know how you always have to shake the ketchup bottle to get it to come out and then it spurts and ends up all over everything? No more! Of course the bottle is prone to falling over in the fridge. O well.

Current Mood: cheerful

the feeling when the passageways to your ear are clogged and suddenly open up
It's a sudden expanse of space, a relief from pressure you'd forgotten was there. If this happened to our minds, it would be enlightenment.
