"The midweek crisis known as Wednesday".
No matter what takes place, you can be sure that it will not thwart the idiocy we are subjected to on a daily basis, right?
But, let's not dwell...
Our Hoosierland weather forecast for today is HOT (what else?) with temps reaching to about NINETY (that's 9-0) degrees, nice and humid with mostly sunny skies. Scattered showers is a possibility, too.
*** First out of the junk drawer is our "WHO SAID THAT?" quote for the week:
"The ego is only an illusion, but a very influential one. Letting the ego-illusion become your identity can prevent you from knowing your true self. Ego, the false idea of believing that you are what you have or what you do, is a backwards way of assessing and living life."
We've been living in a world that prizes itself on people who HAVE stuff or are notable, but what about everyone else who has less, hardly anyone notices, but are comfortable with who THEY ARE? No one speaks for them.
I think this quote lends those of us a greater service than we will know.
So, who said that? The answer at the top of tomorrow's post.
Meanwhile, back at St. John's University in New York...
*** Next up, time for our "What the hell happens today, Bob?" feature:
JULY 19 -
---it's National Daiquiri Day
---It's National Hot Dog Day
*** Next, another person shot on the SE side. Here's the story:
Police believe the shooting took place in the 3300 block of Lillie St.
Officers were combing the area for evidence such as shell casings.
(note to FWPD- try and PATROL more and chase the radio less)
*** Next, we have us a young buck who wanted to get his "bling on"...here's the link:
Poverty my ass...he's not taking jewelry for food, that's for sure.
*** Next up, we've got us some more "ethnic" fraudsters among us. Here's that story:
LOVE to spend...other people's money. Why work when you can do shit like this, right?
*** Next, five (count 'em 5) artists vie for a new sculpture in the soon to be developed Promenade Park phase of the Riverfront project (can we stand the strain?...) Here's the story:
ART MAJOR in high school). Such things tend to screw up the pristine environment of what constitutes a real park.
Oh, wait...the city and the developers have ALREADY taken care of THAT much by screwing up a pristine environment...haven't they?
*** Next stop...that little bit of solace we call "Kitten Corner"...
AS rammy-assed as the day before, which is certainly a blessing for me. I don't have to worry about frenetic behavior and flying cats about the house.
Gallifrey likes to spend time in the living room in the evening, while Violet likes the hallway for some reason. During the day, there's always "the perch".
ALL the time, and that's a real shame.
You just have to "get lucky" when they do something cute.
*** Next up, let's drop in on "Midnight and Company"...
Whiskers (Wifey calls the cat Cinnamon) is getting friendlier, which makes sense given that we're feeding the two of them along with OUR cats...lol.
Midnight was his usual self...a tad on the aloof side, but that's fine.
Nice to have a mellow cat around, even if it IS outside...heh.
*** Last back to the vault of tomorrow...the other day, my good friend and fellow blogger/renegade time lord, Chris Martin took to task the BBC regarding their choice for the new Doctor Who, and proceeded to provide some VERY valid reasons as to why HE should be the "Next Doctor".
IS worth a look-see, so get over there and read it), I figured what the heck...let's give it a go.
10) I've been a "Whovian" since the mid 70s and recorded lots of the classic era eps on Beta.
9) I have a VERY long scarf.
8) I don't mind wearing bow ties.
7) I scratch built a model TARDIS out of balsa wood 40+ years ago!
|Looks good with certain figures, too.|
6) I don't do a bad British accent.
5) I would much prefer visiting Earth to living on Earth.
|Not as ROUND as I remember it.|
4) I don't have K-9, but cats DO have 9 lives, and that's important when you live as long as a Time Lord.
|There's 18 lives right here.|
3) I currently have SEVERAL sonic screwdrivers.
WAY too many standard ones)
2) I HAVE actually shaken hands with TOM BAKER.
|Friend taking photo was nervous...sorry.|
|It's hard to take a picture OF a picture.|
1) And the number one reason why I could be the NEXT Doctor:
I HAVE ATTACK EYEBROWS !
(I've yet to remove any bottle caps with them, but they ARE independently cross....lol)
So take THAT, BBC...that makes TWO excellent chances you had to do things proper...lol.
Oh, well...maybe NEXT life?
(or would be several lifetimes ago? It's all a bit...Timey-Wimey)
Stay SAFE out there, America.
