The ice cream truck is stopped in my parking lot. The kids are just as excited as we used to be. But why does the icream truck play la cucaracha?


edit: the old truck in our neighborhood used to play turkey in the straw, but at the wrong tempo - sort of like Christopher Walken marked the places to rest

In the book I just finished, the phrase "the barman's buttocks" came up several times (in reference to being the passenger on a scooter) and I can't get it out of my head now.

I keep picturing it as the title/cover of a traditional folk album

If I had the talent and resources, I would love to make a mockumentary series for one of the forensics channels where the episodes were all played straight, but were really based on songs.

I'm starting with Small Change got rained on with his own 38...

I was reading an article about the Westboro Baptist Church threatening to protest at Leonard Nimoy's funeral.

I hope they someday protest at mine. It's a badge of honor to live a life that annoys them. Good for you, Mr Nimoy!

I also hope my family will go out and shake their hands and say, "Thank you so much for coming. It would mean so much to her to know she really pissed you off."

Jim recently read The Wee Free Men, and ending up reading many passages to me. When he was done, I moved it to my kindle, but I had a question....

In my nearly asleep state as he was leaving for work yesterday, I asked him if I was going to be lost by jumping to vol. 30.

He asked me what I remembered from the earlier ones, and I said: we used too much pink, we need to know what sex the turtle is, and death comes to Downton Abby

He stopped me there and made me explain.



Well- Lady Mary is Susan, Death's grandaughter

After a second, he said- only in the movie. And I replied, that's ok, only on tv.

I should probably wait til I'm awake to ask questions

Tolkien question:

Someone on a line I follow asked why Aragorn was raised in Rivendell and was given the answer: "Many of the women, children, and aged of the remnant of the Dunedain of Arnor had lived in Rivendell in the years since Arnor was destroyed."

I am not wading into this sort of argument, but I don't remember anything like this being mentioned. Did I miss that? (I do miss things - I only recently had it pointed out to me that in the tale of years, February has 30 days. d'oh)

I did ask for their source and was told "in the appendices." (fileg pictures vague hand waving)

They also accept that the rest of the Dunedain were living in The Angle, which as far as I know is only well accepted fanon.

Anyone can confirm or deny and if confirm, give me a pointer to *where* in the appendices?

I read a lot of self published books from Amazon on my kindle these days, especially memoirs. I really enjoy almost all of them, but sometimes they make me completely nuts.

I understand some mistakes will get through - they even creep into a few classic titles when they get converted. But sometimes they have so many punctuation errors I want to scream.

I try not to hold it against the author when I review the book, especially if I am enjoying the story, because there is no way for me to really know if they don't get it, if there was bad editing, or if it happened during formatting. Also, I am not the comma champ myself.

The book I am currently reading though - I just hit a chapter that's like William Shatner and Christopher Walken had an argument over where the pauses should go, and ended up having a comma fight where they just threw handfuls of them at each other.
