Ceci n'est pas une personne.

Wanna fuck with the OED? They put in the name a of a fictional person, the idea being that if the name shows up in other online sources, they must be plagurizing the OED.

Let me introduce you to Lillian Virginia Mountweazel:

I'm thinking Mountweazel sounds like a name a furry would love...

Anyway, besure to make lot's of references to Lillian Virginia Mountweazel, if you want to hamper the OED's searches for the name.

Todays off site link of the day:

198.161.33.146 - - [25/Oct/2005:08:11:00 -0700] "GET /albums/userpics/10003/normal_cock-campaign2.jpg HTTP/1.0" 200 59117 "http://www.nexopia.com/profile.php?uid=102" "Mozilla/4.0 (compatible; MSIE 6.0; Windows NT 5.1; .NET CLR 1.1.4322)"

It seems some teenaged boy on Nexopia liked my posters from Shae's Best Cock on the Block contest. I guess I've found my target demographic: Pimpily faced virgins. :-P

What a woman wants? Discuss!!!

From Jonathan Carroll's blog:

--------
An excerpt from a letter. Friends and family were discussing an extraordinary woman who, for some mysterious reason, has had only medium luck in love. Someone who knows her very well said this:

"She wants what very few people know how to give. She wants all the simple things. Not many people know how to do simple anymore. She wants grilled cheese sandwiches at home dipped in ketchup served on a paper plate, not dinner at an expensive restaurant. She wants to sit on the beach at sunset, not some far away exotic vacation. She wants a handwritten note that says I care about you, not some piece of jewelry that was financed over three years. She wants you to brush her hair, not send her to some spa for a day.

"And she wants things even simpler than that. Simple things that it seems like we have all forgotten. She wants you to ask her before you kiss her for the first time and the second. She wants you to hold her hand while you're watching re-runs together on the couch. She wants you to look at her when you talk to her. You guys, not just you, but so many guys have it all wrong. You think it is about where you take her and what you buy her for her birthday and for Christmas and you think it is about figuring out how her mind works. You think it is about being the best lover she ever had and you think it is about what she thinks of your career and your friends and your families and you think it is about all kinds of things that would never matter to her.

"As far as she's concerned, you can go out with the guys as often as you like. She *wants* you to have fun and enjoy yourself. You can have a job that keeps you and calls you away from home. She wants you to be happy with your work and she wants you to succeed. You can be so-so in bed. She wants to learn your body and have you learn hers. You can be greedy and selfish and demanding from time to time. She wants to work things through with you. You can see her once a week or once a month. She just wants to make the most of the time you get together.

"What does she want? That's what someone asked. All she wants is to be loved, simply. Just like she loves everything in her life. There is no complex formula to the way she lives. Everything for her is simple and easy because everything comes from her heart. She wants to be loved from your heart. And no one in her life has done that yet because people spend way too much time over-thinking things and over-analyzing things and doing stupid things and finding reasons not to just love from the heart. "

And then he got up and left. And no one said another word.


What do you want? What do you think your partner wants?

It is by caffiene alone I set my mind in motion.
It is by the juice of java the thoughts acquire speed,
The hands acquire shakes,
The shakes become a warning.
It is by caffiene alone I set my mind in motion.

Edit...
That is a modification of the Mentat mantra:

It is by will alone I set my mind in motion.
It is by the juice of sapho that thoughts acquire speed, the lips acquire stains.
The stains become a warning.
It is by will alone I set my mind in motion.


Another good good quote from the series is the Bene Gesserit fear mantra:

"I must not fear. Fear is the mind-killer. Fear is the little-death that brings total obliteration. I will face my fear. I will permit it to pass over me and through me. And when it has gone past I will turn the inner eye to see its path. Where the fear has gone there will be nothing. Only I will remain."

I must drink beer. Beer is the mind-killer. Beer is the little-death that brings total obliteration. I will face my beer. I will permit it to pass over me and through me. And when it has gone past I will turn the inner eye to see its path. Where the beer has gone there will be nothing. Only I will remain.


I think I see some t-shirts coming out of this...

In sympathy of the hurricane victims our power decided to go out. I suspect I have another couple hours of life on the UPS, but if my site goes down, you know why...

Power is back. Though I suspect my IP address has changed, so my site is basically unreachable until I purchase some DNS hosting and get everything cut over, which should be later tonight or tomorrow.
