I have created a time sensitive Style sheet script for my blog. There are now two separate themes. One for the daytime and one for the evening. The switch happens at 7:00 pm then reverts back to daytime at 5:00 am. If you are super impatient or just want to see what the different theme looks like, simply type “night” anywhere on the page. Typing “day” with do the opposite.
Also, if you would like to experience a horrible seizure type “falconpunch”. You have been warned.
"In this etymology game you’ll be presented with 10 randomly selected etymology (word origin) or word definition puzzles to solve; in each case the word or phrase is highlighted in bold, and a number of possible answers will be presented. You need to choose the correct answer to score a point for that question.”
I love studying word and phrase origins. This is a great game.
“Vintage design, when done well, can make a user feel like they have been transported back in time. This particular style often uses design elements that look like they were found in the attic of an old house dating back to the 1920’s, 30’s, or 40’s. If you have a project coming up that requires this type of design, here is a big roundup of textures and Photoshop brushes, all found at deviantArt.”
“If you’re the kind of woman who thinks your partner’s watching porn because there’s something wrong with you, do you also think there’s something wrong with your cooking if he likes to eat out or that there’s something wrong with your DVD/TV set-up if he likes to go to the movies or that there’s something wrong with your driving if he wants to drive? Is it always about you?”—
There is a lot of well deserved buzz for Wall-E, & to a lesser extent Wanted, going on around here, but I just wanted to add to the list a great 1st installment of a planned trilogy that started this weekend. Mongol is the story of Genghis Khan’s life and is surprisingly good. Now, it’s a foreign film with subtitles so that may cause pause for many but there’s something to be said for zero special effects or big name stars. Just some incredible scenery and historical perspective. I concede it will be a tough one to squeeze in for many because of of the opening of Hancock & Hellboy 2 in the next 10 days or so. I for one am actually much more anxious to see The Wackness & Gonzo. Both came out of Sundance with high praise & start this Thursday. All of these of course are simply fillers until The Dark Knight hits on the 18th.
I thought Wall-E was brilliant. Wasn’t so impressed with Wanted.
Never use the underline feature, it is a law. Only for hyper links on the web is this allowed. Underlining was a way for typewriters back in the day to Italicize text because they couldn’t set italics. Underlining and italicizing text at the same time is the most redundant thing you can do in life but rules can be broken.
I’m so tired, but I can’t sleep. It’s 2:30 am, and I’ve been laying in bed for an hour and a half. I can’t shut my brain off. I just drank some cough syrup that expired 05/06. I hope I don’t die, or my kidneys shut off. I’m so mad that I drank that diet Pepsi from Qdoba at 9:30 pm. I’m old. I can’t even have caffeine after 8 pm anymore. Lame.
i carry your heart with me (i carry it in my heart) i am never without it (anywhere i go you go, my dear; and whatever is done by only me is your doing, my darling) i fear no fate (for you are my fate, my sweet) i want no world (for beautiful you are my world, my true) and it’s you are whatever a moon has always meant and whatever a sun will always sing is you
here is the deepest secret nobody knows (here is the root of the root and the bud of the bud and the sky of the sky of a tree called life; which grows higher than the soul can hope or mind can hide) and this is the wonder that’s keeping the stars apart
I’ve been trying to think of ways to spice up my life. I’m 35 years old, happily married with two kids and I have a good job in insurance. But somethings missing. I feel like I’m old before my time. I need to inject some excitement into my daily routine through my arm before its too late. I need a challenge, something to get the adrenaline pumping again. An addiction would be nice, but, in short, I need a nemesis. I’m willing to pay $350 up front for you services as an arch enemy over the next six months. Nothing crazy. Steal my parking space, knock my coffee over, trip me when Im running to catch the BART and occasionaly whisper in my ear, “Ahha, we meet again”. That kind of thing. Just keep me on my toes. Complacency will be the death of me. You need to have an evil streak and be blessed with innate guile and cunning. You should also be adept at inconsicuous pursuit. Evil laugh preferred. Send me a photo and a brief explanation why you would be a good nemesis.
British accent preferred.

I’ve seen this before, it’s one of my favorite best of’s.
“Wall-E might be the most sympathetic, lovable robot ever created on film. While R2D2 was hilarious and endearing, he had the benefit of C3PO to translate for him and a cast of human characters to carry the weight of the story. At the end of the day, R2D2 was simply comic relief, but his descendant, whose voice was also created by Ben Burtt, is so full of humanity that you feel like your heart might just burst. Simply put, Wall-E is a masterpiece.”
"There has been much discussion recently about how big a role speculators have been playing in the sharp rise in energy prices, though no consensus has emerged on this point. "
"Record oil prices are inflated by speculation and not justified by market fundamentals," according to Gheit. "Based on supply and demand fundamentals, crude-oil prices should not be above $60 per barrel."
However, Neil Ryan of Ryan Oil & Gas Partners says:
The creation of a comprehensive U.S. energy policy that tackles issues of increasing domestic supply and reining in consumer demand via conservation should be Congress’ focus, Ryan said. “Instead we’re on bended knee begging the Saudis to put more oil on the market and talking about shutting down spec trades.”
It should be noted that Neil Ryan has a vested interest in exploring domestic supply.
It is now a truth acknowledged even by science: men like casual sex more than women do.
One of the first academic studies to investigate positive and negative emotions felt after casual sex has revealed that evolution has not adapted women to having casual sex. Otherwise, they conclude, women would feel better about a one-night sexual partner, instead of feeling “used” and regretful.
An internet survey of 1,743 men and women who have had one-night stands found that 80 per cent of the men had positive feelings about it, feeling greater sexual satisfaction and contentment, plus a greater sense of well-being. Only 54 per cent of women felt the same way.
