Random Stuff

I hate the DaVinci Code. Why on earth is everyone so excited about it? It was a terrible book, with nothing new to say. If I see one more news special about "Decoding DaVinci," or discussing the "New and controversial claims" in that damned book, I'm going to scream! There is absolutely nothing new in that book, and it's dead boring.

Mary officially has a bad skin infection, damn it. Her eczema got out of control, and I ended up spending 70 dollars on various prescription creams to try to solve the problem today.

The Grey's Anatomy season finale was last night. Now what am I going to do Sunday Evenings? How will I survive without my weekly sob-fest?

Moustapha may not be home this week. Crap. Crap crap crap.

Dooce was discussing the different ways of saying the word Crayon (cray-on vs. cran vs. crown) on her blog, and it got me thinking. I know that I say some things differently (correctly). I say cray-on, but I also say yaw-gurt as opposed to yow-gurt, to-mah-to as opposed to to-may-to, priv-acy, as opposed to preye-vacy, krik instead of creek (which I admit may be a Saskatchewanism). My crazy east coast husband says all sorts of things wrong. For example he says tore instead of tou-er, and Kahrrr instead of car.

They ripped up the sidewalk in front of my house, put up "Sidewalk Closed" signs, and seem to have abandoned the job. The guys have not been back yet since Thursday morning. What's up with that?

My character for the Tuesday night D&D game died (not really, but because of a stupid decision on my part is out of the game). I had to make a new character. I hate making characters with a hot hot heat. And no character is going to be as cool as a halfling bard named Dewberry Tealeaf.

A cat, not mine, disemboweled a bird, and left the remains on my front step. Again, what's up with that?

I'm so glad you said that about the book that shall not be named.

I think I may be the only one in the world who has yet to read it...

The cat must like you.

I have not read it either.

I haven't read the Da Vinci code, which everyone seems to forget is a work of FICTION. It's funny, they're all jumping up and down about the "theological unsoundness" of Brown's book, but they're getting church groups together to see Narnia.

Besides, Brown cribbed almost all of his stuff from the "scholarly" non-fiction work called "Holy Blood, Holy Grail". I forgot the authors' names, but it postulated the same theories without all the literary devices.

Rob must love making characters because I'm constantly picking up various half-filled in character sheets from every surface in the house. and 9 times outta 10 when I ask him if he needs it he says, "No. You can throw it out."!!!

I liked Da Vinci Code - as the FICTIONAL thriller/mystery it was. I didn't loan it (library) to open up some theological truths, and yes, Dan Brown did not invent those ideas - they've been tossed around for a LONG time.
