As a high priestess of the Immaculate Order of the Falling Sky, my thanks to seph_ski for passing along this link: Earth avoids disaster as asteroid comes as close as moon. It's a shame about 2004 XP14. She could have gotten the party started with a proper bang. Still, our psychokinetic tractor beam is being perfected for April 13, 2029 (I'll be -25, presumably) and Apophis. All hail the Neozoic. We will be ready. Anything twixt now and then is icing on the cake.


Lately, mevennen seems to have all the best memes (behind the cut):

1. Have you ever been searched by the cops?

Yes. On more occasions than I can recall.

2. Do you close your eyes on roller coasters?

No, though I've not ridden a coaster since 1983.

3. When's the last time you've been sledding?

Spring 1992.

4. Would you rather sleep with someone else, or alone?

With someone else, usually.

5. Do you believe in ghosts?

Yes, but with the crucial proviso that I do not believe that ghosts are spirits or any other phenomenon related to "life after death." Rather, I suspect "ghosts" of being part of a family of as yet poorly understood phenomena related to temporal anomalies.

6. Do you consider yourself creative?

On my good days.

7. Do you think O.J. killed his wife?


8. Jennifer Aniston or Angelina Jolie?

Angelina Jolie. What kind of silly question is that?

9. Do you stay friends with your ex's?

Almost always.

10. Do you know how to play poker?

No. I have never had any interest in card games.

11. Have you ever been awake for 48 hours straight?

Yes, and a few hours beyond 48. There were hallucinations.

12. What's your favorite commercial?

This is almost like asking, "What's your favourite anal parasite?" But. Let's see. Right now? Definitely the new Apple commercials.

13. What are you allergic to?

Nickel. Poison oak and ivy. Pastels. These are my kryptonites.

14. If you're driving in the middle of the night, and no one is around do you run red lights?

I've not driven since 2003, and I've hardly driven since 1997. Before then, it happened from time to time. Yeah. I know. I'm pure evil.

15. Do you have a secret that no one knows but you?

Several hundred, at least.

16. Boston Red Sox or New York Yankees?

I don't do team sports.

17. Have you ever been Ice Skating?

I was in high school. I did it just once. I sucked. I was once a very good roller skater, though.

18. How often do you remember your dreams?

Almost always, though I'd usually prefer not to recall them.

19. When was the last time you laughed so hard you cried?

Beats the frell out of me.

20. Can you name 5 songs by The Beatles?

Okay. That's just dumb. Next question.

21. What's the one thing on your mind now?

This question.

22. Do you know who Ghetto-ass barbie is?

No. But wouldn't that be Ghetto-Ass Barbie?

23. Do you always wear your seat belt?


24. What cell service do you use?


25. Do you like Sushi?

Yes. In fact, sushi is almost a good enough reason to spare mankind from devastation by asteroid impact. Almost.

26. Have you ever narrowly avoided a fatal accident?

Three times come immediately to mind, but I'm certain there have been many more than that.

27. What do you wear to bed?

Nothing. It's bad enough having to wear clothes all day long.

28. Been caught stealing?

No. I've never been caught.

29. What shoe size do you have?

Women's 11 (US).

30. Do you truly hate anyone?

Oh, yes. Indeed.

31. Classic Rock or Rap?


32. If you could sleep with one famous person, who would it be?

Only one? That's cruel. Johnny Depp. And Imogen Heap. Okay. Yeah. That's two. But I'd sleep with them both at the same time...

33. Favorite Song?

Argh. That's impossible. At the moment, today, probably something by VNV Nation, Radiohead, or The Decemberists.

34. Have you ever sang in front of the mirror?


35. What food do you find disgusting?

A lot of meat, especially organ meats. Tofu. Caviar. Beets. Tapioca.

36. Do you sing in the shower?

I don't take showers.

37. Have you ever made fun of your friends behind their back?

Yes. Like I said, I'm evil.

38. Have you ever stood up for someone you hardly knew?

Yes, because I'm also a walking contradiction.

39. Have you ever been punched in the face?

Not since seventh grade.

    Sunny and hot today. Our high was 93˚F, and the heat index must have pushed 100˚F. I managed to get through the line edits on "Untitled 46" today.…
