The Bad Seed is out there waiting with her mom. I swear it! She gave me the look of death!

That's a cool shot. I like the telephoto compression, especially with the heat ripples in the distance, and I like how it looks like he's the leader of the pack.

Thanks, yeah, I didn't take it (it was in the local paper) but I really like it.

Movie props are sometimes more interesting than the movie. Just spied a Taylor Guitars logo mug in a film (I have a Taylor) and suddenly this stupid movie earns more claim to my attention.

Spent yesterday reorganizing the dining room into a cyberschool room. Two school issued computers all set up with workspace.
I don't know enough about computers to understand why, but these things don;t work with a wireless network, so they each came with 40ft of wire to connect to the router.
a) it's not long enough.
b) I don't really want 2 40+ ft wires strung across/around the rooms.

I was planning to call tech support tomorrow to ask for a longer length of wire and hopefully some kind of splitter or something (pulling this out of my ass) so that one wire would hook up to 2 computers. Or maybe there's something that will make them work wirelessly?
Also, they only sent one printer/scanner and one cord that hooks into one computer. I guess they'll have to keep swapping the cord out? Lots of their work will be submitter by scanner/attachment.

Make their first school project a task-based IT learning opportunity.

Have decided to feed Diz dried food via a home-made six sided puzzle box.
I meant it to be a cube but the cardboard was unforgiving. One hole.
The hole is quite large - I'll make a series of smaller-holed boxes as he gets used to it.

The idea is that he bats it around to get his food.

Of course as this is dried food only he'll still get his wet food of an evening.
And when the bedroom door is open he can eat the Mia-cat's food - although I have an agreement with my parents to try to keep the bowl out of reach/ not full.

At present, if he knocks the little box he should get food. The hole is that big. Trouble is he butts it with his head, knocking it over and invariably putting the hole on top. I'm not helping - he needs to be motivated to work it out himself. He will not starve. And he has plenty of water (as discussed in another thread) so it's not cat cruelty.

I just wanted to give him a slightly more interesting life. Slightly more natural (in the hunting/ reward stylee) and at least temporarily increase his appetite for his dinner.

I just noticed today... occasionally Dora the Explorer encounters extraterrestrial side characters, and when this happens, they are always, without exception, referred to as space creatures, never "aliens."

That's because Dora is an alien.

I'm being a post ho about being a ho. My cow orker and I were talking about stressful jobs (he just spent some time in the hospital, and was advised to take a week off if his job is stressful...yeah, right... time off, that was funny say it again.) Anyway, I was like (ticking off on fingers) "President of the U.S., Hospital employee, Financial Aid person, Police Officer" and he said "Ho..." and reminded me of this Eddie Murphy skit from SNL, The Velvet Jones School of Technology.

Quote:
Velvet Jones: Hello! Are you a female high-school dropout between the ages of 16 and 25? Are you tired of doors being slammed in your face when you apply for a job? Are you tired of lying around in bed all day with nothing to do? Well, you never need get up again! Because in 6 short weeks, I can train you to be a high-payin' ho! That's right! It's a known fact that a good ho can make up to $1500 a week! Just think, $1500 a week without even leaving the comforts of your own bedroom! Sound too good to be true? Just send for my new book entitled:

[Brings in the book]

Velvet Jones: 'I Wanna Be a Ho'! And if, in 6 short weeks, you're not confident that you can make big money as a ho workin' for me, just send the book back for a full refund! It's as simple as that!
These days, I would add: Financial Aid available to those who qualify!
