I meant to do this one a while ago ...

On the subject of training men to be hot, cassandralupos writes:

Be artistic. Music will get the most immediate results, but other forms of art will also work. Writing, painting, and acting are all half-endearing, half-impressive, and half-sexy. (But Cassandra, that’s too many halves, you say. To which I reply: correcting my math skills is not sexy).

Go read the whole entry here: it's hilarious and very, very true.

Edited to add: Wow, dude, six comments and they're all icon squees? Instead of replying to each, I'll just say it here -- yoink at will, I made it! And I put my icon journal's name in it so people don't have to remember to credit! :) If you want to friend the icon journal, I plan (eventually) to make and post an edited version of this icon that's both fixed (like, "MOW THE LAWN" will be changed to "MOTHERLAND"), and synched exactly with the flash video. /edit

...That being said, I have created SCULPTURE.
Well, sorta.

I went for my usual weekend hike with my lovely Doberman Sass and my sweety on Saturday. Since we hike through geologically interesting territory, I always keep my eye peeled for cool rocks. Well, I found a rock (actually a mini-double geode) and my sweety found a bone (me thinks it is the toe of a long-dead coyote).

And so! I have my sculpture. I call it "Bone and Stone".

Moderately un-worksafe

Whilst talking about Something Positive, a comic that's well on the way to Garfield status amongst folks with no sex life, one might spy the following phrase, given in good faith by cavalorn...

Let's get this straight. In a [comic] strip that talks about chicken-wrestling Quebecois being smuggled over the border, it's the number of them that was crammed into the attic that you find implausible?

Yes. Yes I do.

From JF, in regards to this jawdroppingly stupid post:

hinata: ...damn, I wish my pagan friends could shoot energy bolts from their fingers and make cool weather. Totally have the wrong friends. /sarcasm

sewingmyfish: Totally. Mine can only assume the form of any animal or the form of any type of water when they join hands. "Super" my ass.

You know a post is going to be effing genius when it starts with this:

The world is in peril. George W. Bush is having his minions kill innocent Iraqi women, children, and woman and children disguised as men for the sole purpose of gaining experience points and oil.

sethimothy on his (satirical) plan to save the world, and thus the internet, here. The entire entry is hilarious, and you should go read it. *nod*

Partly 'cause it's funny, and partly 'cause I wanna spread the word.

January 27th is the birthday of Lewis Carroll, author of ALICE'S ADVENTURES IN WONDERLAND. Alice fell down a rabbit hole into a place where everything had changed and none of the rules could be counted on to apply anymore. I say, let's do the same: January 27th, 2005 should be the First Annual LiveJournal Rabbit Hole Day. When you post on that Thursday, instead of the normal daily life and work and news and politics, write about the strange new world you have found yourself in for the day, with its strange new life and work and news and politics. Are your pets talking back at you now? Has your child suddenly grown to full adulthood? Does everyone at work think you're someone else now? Did Bush step down from the White House to become a pro-circuit tap-dancer? Did Zoroastrian missionaries show up on your doorstep with literature in 3-D? Have you been placed under house arrest by bizarre insectoid women wielding clubs made of lunchmeat?

thebratqueen : I am now in possession of a blender, which means only one thing: Crepes!

taffimai : *blinks* Blenders make crepes?

thebratqueen : I'm pretty sure they do. Though it's been sitting on my dining room table for a whole day now and I haven't seen one appear. Someone might have lied to me.

taffimai : Alas, I wouldn't know. I always had to go on the assumption that crepes were native to restaurant kitchens. I thought that the stories of a rare breed that had ventured into private homes were just urban legends.

thebratqueen : Ahh, yes, the rare and unusual domestic crepe. I hear if you're very gentle with them, they'll eat off your hand.

Or maybe I have the pronouns mixed up there.

taffimai : *grin* Just possibly.
