Went inside to find the border collie had snuck one in. That one's dead.

On the weekend we got four new pets - four of these:



Spiny Leaf Insects. Ours are still much smaller than that one.
FINE

I gave myself a haircut last night. Not going to say I did a good job, but it'll do for a couple of more weeks.

Don't be weak. Go with a mullet and hair gel to get the bangs back so you can see.

I can't remember ever seeing as many dandelions as I've seen this year. Usually get a few in my yard, but all yards in our area seem to be covered with them. Maybe they've developed immunity to weed killer. Normal granules I use didn't work. Maybe the spray stuff I used yesterday will.

Here's something that's bugged me for a long time. Has it ever occurred to you that almost everyone pronounces the word "kilometer" wrong? It's 'kilo-meter' (like kilo-gram and kilo-liter), not 'kil-ometer'. The reason why people pronounce it the way they do is because there's a suffix in English '-ometer' that means 'thing that measures...' as in 'speed-ometer' and 'therm-ometer'.

By pure coincidence, 'kilo' ends in a o'. Combine that with meter and it looks like it should be pronounced kil-ometer, which would technically be a thing that measures 'kils', which makes no sense.

I have way too much free time on my hands :P

Yeah you know I am seeing that too.  It's insane.  I sort of like dandelions but once they get past the fluffy stage and the spores fly off, they're hideous stalks.
I'm not particularly religious, and I don't really like Muppets, but I do love word play.

I think I'd actually like to see a fanfic of Star Wars/Guardians of the Galaxy. It could open like this.

Rocket stole a prototype Space Time Oscillation bomb because....

Rocket: I never set one off. I wanted to see what kind of blast it gave off and it was great! Never saw anything like it before. Unfortunately I was sort of off on the blast radius.
Starlord: You not only sent us to another galaxy you sent us INTO THE DISTANT PAST!
Drax: But since this is the past, that means our technology is far more sophisticated than what these primitives will have. We can make ourselves in charge of everything.
Gamora: Not how it works. And we seem to have attracted the attention of several of those enormous triangular ships.
Groot: I am Groot.
Rocket: You got a bad feeling about this? Be more optimistic. Not every space fleet is full of uptight assholes like the Kree. Or Xandarians. Or Skrulls. We'll probably get along fine with the locals.

Just throw them in at any point. They're shitdisturbers no matter what they do. It wouldn't be worse than the fics Disney Wars has been putting out.

"No mow May" (which I didn't know about and l wouldn't have abided by if I did) is now leading to our same city counsel that passed it threatening to start fining people at the end of next week if they don't mow their lawns by then. Don't envy anyone trying to cut 18" plus tall grass with a standard mower.

I live in an area where that wouldn’t be plausible due to cottonmouths and ticks (or other parasitic insects).

Everybody's second favorite drug dealing teacher (after their real life drug dealing teacher), Bryan Cranston, used to do anime work back in the 90's. Had no idea since I almost always use subtitles.

If your keyboard has a number pad, you can hold down the right alt and hit 2, 4, 8, to get °, the degree symbol.  Not exactly easy to remember, but not impossible either.
