Mmm, steak

So I got t-boned last night. Some delightful fellow smashed into my driver’s side, towards the rear (picture their drivers side headlight would have hit right where I was. Most of the damage is to the rear of the car though. I was most of the way through the intersection and this guy either flew through the stop sign or couldn’t stop. Either way he didn’t stick around. I don’t think I have rental coverage, so I guess I get to burn some vacation time on a xmas vacation. This must be my “happy holidays” message from the powers that be.

Man creates lolcat

Korean scientists have apparently cloned glow-in-the-dark cats. linky:

I has a color

They were showing vids of RedCat all day on CNN, and he does indeed glow red under UV light. His nose, eyelids, and parts of his ears specifically. GreenCat seems to glow all over.

First: What the mother fuck?

Second: Where can I get one?!

Apparently the sky is falling. In discrete packets of snow. A lot of it. Luckily work is treating it like the second coming and putting everyone up in a local hotel if they don’t feel like driving home. After carefully weighing the benefits of driving home in traffic that’s literally backed up a couple dozen carlengths into the parking lot against staying in a hotel that has an irish bar that brews their own beer, I decided to stay. My boss pointed out there is Baileys’ in his drawer for just this kind of emergency situation, and that drinking at work from this point forward is to be strictly enforced. You know, to keep the troops happy. If you have to drive home today, drive safe New Englandahs.

The house that steals holidays

December 12th, 2007 7 comments

So there’s this house near me. It steals holidays. 2 years ago around this time they put up a nativity scene in the barn they had connected to the house. Basically it was lifesize scarecrow-esque straw dolls all arranged in the proper fashion. They have it in the basement of this barn with the storm doors open so it’s visible to the road. It was pretty cool for a season I guess, but they left it up. All year. For 2 years now. The dolls are all faded and whatever dyes they used are running from moisture. Moisture has gotten to the straw too… the dolls are all hunched over and saggy. Honestly, it looks like a family of zombies about to feast on a baby Jesus. It’s looked like that for a solid year now.

They didn’t stop there though. Last year they put up electric candles in the windows. Pretty typical, except of course that they never took them down. This spring I noticed that they hung easter eggs in the dead tree out front, dangling them from strings. It’s almost terrifying. This halloween they put electric lit plastic pumpkins in the windows, right next to the electric candles. There’s no consistency to their placement with respect to the candles, they were just kind of tossed in the windows.

This family is collecting holidays and violating them. I half expect them to steal a turkey from the turkey farm down the street and crucify it in the front yard next thanksgiving. Maybe steal a baby, dress it up like a Leprechaun, and hang it from the barn roof for St.Patty’s day.
