At least the drunk driver did not hit my house.

I'm not sure how to interpret this finding:

You Are 14% Evil

You are good. So good, that you make evil people squirm.

Just remember, you may need to turn to the dark side to get what you want!

Did you know that Robert Pirsig, author of Zen and the Art of Motorcycle Maintenance, taught at Montana State College in Bozeman, Montana?

Which reminds me - I need to winterize my motorcycle...

Wild Apple

Wild Apple seems to be the favorite flavor of cigarillo at my local convenience store. Also-ran flavors include grape, peach, pineapple, and vanilla.

Me, I've never smoked anything (tobacco, MJ, meth, crack, heroin, etc.), and have managed (so far) to resist the allure of pineapple-flavored mini-cigars.

Can you identify any of these Bozeman bloggers?

Music by David Gray

I heard this song on a Warren Miller video, and liked it enough to track it down.

Reminder: blogger bash on Saturday!

Saturday, 11/11 at Mackenzie River Pizza Co on Main Street. I'll be there early (5:30 pm) to try and beat the rush (and drink some beer). About 10 folks have RSVPed, so should be fun.

If we haven't met -- if you see a blue-eyed fellow who looks like a blogger, that's me. Also - 6' 6" tall, shaved head.

Double Feature - # 2

Big Mike sez "eye-grabbing entertainment!"

The Alienist
Blade Runner

Blade Runner is an old favorite (I've watched the movie more times than I've read the original P.K. Dick story). I read The Alienist after reading Erin's recommendation.

Double Feature - # 1

Big Mike sez --- "cheeky"

Gallatin County: Red or Blue?

Senate: Neither red nor blue, in (almost) exactly the same proportion as Montana overall. Burns had a few more votes that Tester in Gallatin County, though, which surprised me. I don't have data to back it up, by my impression is that university communities tend more liberal. On the oher hand, universities with large engineering programs probably tend more conservative.

House: Red, in exactly the same proportion as Montana overall.

I think most of the candidates I voted for (note: I did not vote in every race) won. Woo-hoo ;-)

What American accent do you have?
Your Result: Philadelphia

Your accent is as Philadelphian as a cheesesteak! If you're not from Philadelphia, then you're from someplace near there like south Jersey, Baltimore, or Wilmington. if you've ever journeyed to some far off place where people don't know that Philly has an accent, someone may have thought you talked a little weird even though they didn't have a clue what accent it was they heard.

Literature comes to life

Unfortunately, it's Orwell's 1984. As you recall, Winston's squeeze Julia was a member of the Junior Anti-Sex League.
