Neither here nor there
My brain has gone on hiatus. And it has taken my motivation with it. I find myself bogged down by a lack of inertia and an absence of muse.
But being a believer that this saying..."Out of sight, out of mind"....bears more weight than...."Absence makes the heart grow fonder"....I wanted to post a bit of prattle before more time passed.
So here's a mish mash of some current thoughts in between hic-cupping brain waves.
My last posting mentioned X-Files and it brought to mind two of my favorite lines from the show...as follows:
Fox Mulder, on a crime scene, was examining a toilet seat. It was frozen or something equally X-Files-ish. He reached in, pulled out a watch, turned to the camera and panned, “Now that gives new meaning to passing time.”
In a different episode, at another crime scene, Mulder found a thumb and dropped it into a sandwich bag. Holding it up to Scully he asked. “What do you think...Siskel or Ebert?”
The other day at the health club while I was pounding away on the elliptical machine there was no one worthwhile to watch on the Food Channel so I headed to the Cartoon Network. My lucky day -- it was the Tom & Jerry show. Sigh. They just don't make cartoons like they used to. I still laugh out loud at the antics of this cat and mouse.
When I got home I Googled T & J, to see if I could find any of their stuff on the Web. What I stumbled across was a game based on them. You can click here to play along. Naturally, it involves cheese. I always play from Jerry's perspective. And I'm throwing down the gauntlet...my highest score is 1900 and I caught the wedge three times in one game. Hah. Beat that.
