When it's sleepy time down south

I'm back in the office, but haven't yet acclimated. When I do, I'm sure I'll be babbling on here all the live-long day. But I keep getting mesmerized by the patterns in the cubicle-wall material ...

This thing's bigger than the both of us

You ever notice how the biggest cats tend to be white cats with similar markings to Mr Bones? What's up with that? Anyway, this cat looks a lot like him, but weighs 33 pounds (a net difference of at least 10 pounds). There must be something genetic going on here, but I've never heard anything specific about why these cats get so fat. Of course, some cats, like Rocky, manage to slim down (but then he's not a mostly-white cat).

In other news, it's Dead Man Walking time. This is my last week as a devil-may-care telecommuter; I start in the office on Monday. I've been spending a lot of time shirking my job and working on my band's album in the basement, but I feel like I should find other ways of taking advantage of my dwindling freedoms. Maybe if it wasn't cold out, I'd get out and frolic or something.

Merry Christmas, I don't wanna fight tonight

I'm gonna be mighty embarrassed if, years from now, children read in the history books that World War III started over protests about some cartoons published in a Danish newspaper. The conspiracy theorist in me thinks somebody's pulling strings in the background to make the protests so inflamed and inciting violence. I know fundamentalists don't need much to set them off, but comic strips? Come on! Haven't they heard the old saying about how you gotta pick your battles...

There have been protests all over the world, riots, fires, flag-burnings of many nations, retaliatory contests looking for the best Holocaust cartoon, requests for Danish citizens to leave countries like Indonesia, and protesters everywhere appear to be attacking anything and everything in the name of outrage over the comics.

This is some stupid fucking bullshit. I respect anybody's right to dissent, but I can't believe all this is happening without the help of forces who feel they would benefit from the static. Nobody could get that pissed off by some cartoons. Right? I know there's supposed to be a law against depictions of the Prophet, but he's been portrayed throughout history and never has there been a stink like this.

Maybe movies like Valley of the Wolves: Iraq will help sublimate anti-American sentiment in the more moderate Muslim world. Maybe it'll make things worse.

I've tasted blood and I want more

Finally! A tasty, meat-free alternative to human flesh! Let's face it, getting real People Meat has always been a bit of a hassle. And like all who enjoy it from time to time, there's also the troubling ethics of human cruelty. Lucky for us, some clever folks have invented a vegetarian version called Hufu.

And no, this apparently is not a joke. Not really, anyway.
