can't even focus on a coffee cup

October 6, 2002

"Sunday morning, waking up
Can't even focus on a coffe cup
Don't even know who's bed I'm in
Where do I start, where do I begin"
--Chemical Brothers, "Where Do I Start". In googling up the lyrics (though most of transcriptions stick an ugly "I'm" before "waking") I realized it must have been in Vanilla Sky, which I watched last night--good movie. An old lover loved the first part of that chorus, it did a good job of describing her inability to cope with the morning, though she was a little more hesitant about the "Don't even know who's bed I'm in" part...

Video Game of the Moment
Curling: The Video Game. (Well, actually "Take-Out Weight Curling") Though I really shouldn't snicker; any nation that so supports baseball (ever try to explain that to a foreign exchage student?) or football (like Rugby, but with body armor) has some 'splainin to do of its own. And curling now has a movie of its own, Men with Brooms.

Link of the Moment
Do Penises have higher bandwidth than cable modems? [insert 'plug and play' joke here]

Magic of the Moment
A Wicca Ceremony for Anorexics. Kind of a scary synergy, that. Pro-anorexia groups are kind of odd. At the risk of offending nearly everybody, I'd say they remind me a bit of the Deaf Culture crowd. Both issues are less black and white than the casual (and non-deaf/normal-eating) observer may realize.

Quote of the Moment
"A girl can wait for the right man to come along but in the meantime that still doesn't mean she can't have a wonderful time with all the wrong ones."
--Cher. From this month's Blender of Love digest I just finished. It featured the results of an interesting little competition by Gala, who had people write love poems to famous monsters. This graphic is made from the little award badge icons I made up for it....Wolfman didn't come out so well but I like the others.

TV Listing of the Moment
The History Channel is currently showing "Desert Storm: The Ultimate War". That title is incorrect in a literal as well as a figurative sense; still, I think it will be interesting to watch given our current war plans.

(Huh, looks like my new "intraday update" style makes some big daily entries. I guess in some ways it brings it closer to my original PalmPilot based KHftCEA journal, where I'm more willing to write minor little points.)
