I saw this kitty at the MSU Student Union.

Just as gross: recipe for Deep-Fried Mayonnaise.
And, I knew a guy in college who raved about sun-baked mayo sandwiches (a joke, I hope).
| You scored as Materialist. Materialism stresses the essence of fundamental particles. Everything that exists is purely physical matter and there is no special force that holds life together. You believe that anything can be explained by breaking it up into its pieces. i.e. the big picture can be understood by its smaller elements.|

The Section Line Ditch runs east of Fowler Road. The "Farmers Canal Company" owns and operates the irrigation ditch. Whenever they get the chance (e.g., when a bordering piece of land is developed), they replace the open ditch with a buried culvert ;-(

I asked him where he found his wife....... he re-married the woman he had divorced a few years previously ;-)
2. I deleted a bunch of defunct blogs.
3. I decided not to add some Bozeman-based MySpace blogs. Although there are some exceptions, MySpace blogs tend to suck big time, IMHO.
4. I'll keep Revolving Duck on the blogroll for a few more weeks even though it has gone on (probably permanent) hiatus. The proprietor of this "personal journey blog" wrote an informative final post.

Here's an amusing article: "Feline reactions to bearded men". I haver never simultaneously had both a beard and a cat, so I am unable to report any personal anecdotes.

A-ha: Take on me - cheesy song, but great rotoscoping of a parallel universe
Genesis: Land of confusion - puppet-mania
Peter Gabriel: Sledgehammer
Dire Straits: Money for nothing
Shining - not a music video, but funny use of Peter Gabriel's song "Salisbury Hill"

Jane Austen's Emma and Persuasion are considered the greatest of her novels, and among the greatest of all English novels. My endorsement: I will be re-reading these novels with care in the years to come.
If you are a beginning "literary reader" (like myself), I would recommend starting with one of Austen's earlier novels, such as Pride and Prejudice. Emma is 100% characterization, 0% action; and Persuasion has a set of inter-related characters worthy of a Tolstoy novel.

Anyway, the Time Traveller travels 800,000 years into the future and meets the eloi. These descendants of modern-day humans are all 4 feet tall and androgynous. The loss of sexual dimorphism in humans transformed this SF tale into a horror story for me ;-)
Update (8/2) - In the recent movie adaptation, the eloi Weena is decidedly non-androgynous. This reinforces my view that movie adaptations of books should be considered on their own merits.
