Oh my God. You know that killer Maryland tornado? It went through Moire‘s front yard. She’s okay, but the entire town is flattened. Go read her account of huddling in the basement while the twister blew by her place. Very scary stuff. Like her, I lived in Indiana for years and never experienced anything like this.

I'm Felicity!What WB Drama Are You?
I am Felicity. Weird. I’ve never even seen that show once.

You are most daring, and like the quote says, you grab the bull by the horns! You do what makes you happy, not what anyone tells you to do. Because of this attitude, chances are that you’re the creative type, whether it be with a paintbrush, a guitar, a journal, etc. You’re also pretty laid-back, so it’s casual all the way for you. You’d rather be comfortable than be a slave to fashion. Finally, you’re a total romantic. Love is most important to you, so you will do whatever it takes to protect it. You might not go as far as Felicity did (she flew across the country to follow Ben!), but definitely fight for it with all you’ve got.

Hmm. That’s pretty accurate, I guess. Maybe I’d like the show. Too bad it’s cancelled. (Linked because everybody else is doing it.)

New Poll: What’s your verdict on ol’ Spook Tooth? You know, I honestly don’t know where I got that phrase from. I think it’s one of my sister’s. At any rate, I’m referring to “Jewel”, the singer-songwriter-poet (and crappy horse rider). As my college roommates can attest, I’ve had an irrational hatred of her for many years now. Am I the only one?

Let me see if I get this straight: Jewel (the singer) had to cancel several performances because she got thrown off a horse and broke her collarbone. She was going to debut her new single, “Break Me”. Seriously. I think she just did it for the publicity. 🙂

That reminds me of Clem Snide, the band that opened for Ben Folds last week. We only caught the end of their set, but we liked what we heard. My favorite part was the singer’s introduction to “Moment in the Sun”. He claimed that he was trying to channel Jewel through the song, “during that living-in-a-van phase”. I laughed and laughed. I’ve never been a big Jewel fan. The spook tooth scares me.

Holeee crap. Have you checked out my Recent Search Requests page lately? Katrina got evicted last night, and I’m #5 with a bullet on Google’s results list. Great. I don’t have any porn, people!

Some greenies at my alma mater tried to set a world record for tree hugging. I kid you not.

Woohoo! While looking up movie times online today, Snookums discovered that tickets are currently on sale in Sydney for Star Wars Episode 2: Attack of the Clones. Six hours later, I had a pair of them for the very first midnight showing in my hand. I admit I’m kinda bummed that we won’t get to camp out, but the fact that I’ll see it fourteen hours before you chumps in the Eastern Hemisphere more than makes up for it! 🙂

Cool! I just realized that Claire has a new blog. The world needs more snarky Aussie bloggers. And not only has she linked me, she’s linked my Dahl page! As she is brilliant and funny, I have returned the favor.

This is the coolest thing ever. A southern Indiana man built his own roller coaster out of scrap metal. It even goes upside-down! This guy sounds like my dad. 🙂 (Link courtesy of John.)

Happy birthday, Bill! (I didn’t include the word “belated”, because it’s still technically Friday in the US, right?)
