Kick the habit.
Thinking of Miss R., who's recently quit: Check out this episode (#95) of Modern Living flash animation, um, thingie.

Ad Banner Review.
Since I get ad space on diaryland for buying a gold membership, I figured I ought to use it. I just finished this ad banner (pop-up window) to "promote" my online diary. I like it, but I'm not sure it conveys the actual whiny and mundane style of the diary. Then again, I don't think it much matters, either. What do you think...post it or not? Your comments and votes are welcome.

You were in my dream last night.
All of you were there. I was naked except for a pair of Green Glittery Doc Martins. You all hated them a lot and told me so, but as I reclined there, looking down on those fabulous boots, I didn't care. I loved them and was so happy to be wearing them.
I don't think that one needs to be analyzed much deeper, now do I?

"Ooooh! Red fog!"
Fireworks in San Francisco, at least where we were, were kind of a bust. There's always next year. Though I can recommend the new show by the San Francisco Mime Troupe. See it free in Dolores Park this weekend, or at a park (or theater) around Northern California through Labor Day.

"If you do boring, stupid, monotonous work, chances are you’ll end up boring, stupid, and monotonous. Work is a much better explanation for the creeping cretinization all around us than even such significant moronizing mechanisms as television and education."

No connection. Just a bunch of links I meant to post:
[Addendum: Indeed, Betty Pearl (of Betty and Pansy) is the Miss Uranus in question, and there are tasteless photos (only for the brave of heart) from the evening in question as well. None of the above, it should be noted, are at all related to the wonderful singing group Betty.]

Natural and Scent-free.
I try not to be too concerned about odor, though my goal is generally to smell of nothing: generally someone else is going to smell more than I do anyway. I wash with Hypo-Allergenic Dove because the unscented is too perfumed for my tastes. Needless to say I also haven't worn cologne since sometime around 1991. When I started going to the Hole in the Wall years ago I cheered at their "No Cologne" policy almost as much as I cheer at "No Cell Phone" Policies today.
It disgusts me when I shake someone's hand or touch a doorknob and realize that I now have their cologne on me. There are certain people at work (who will remain nameless) with whom I never want to be in closed door meetings. I would wonder why people believe that marinating in that much perfume will make them more attractive, but then that's the power of advertising, isn't it?
With that said, I'm heading back to my cup of coffee and bag of garlic potato chips....
