Not done yet

I had some kind of clever post in mind, but it's getting late, I'm tired, and I cannot remember what it was.

The porch project is not yet done. It's coming along, but at this point I shall forego making predictions as to a completion time or date.

While driving to Home Despot this morning I thought of at least half a dozen interesting topics about which to blog. Seriously, they would have been interesting, or at least more interesting than whining about building porch steps. In fact, the bloglettes kind of composed themselves. I was wishing I had some way to type while driving; that is, a fast, reasonably safe way to type while driving. I suppose I could "audio blog" while driving, but for a number of reasons I think I'll pass on that option.

No writing today, however (other than what you're reading right here). Hammers, nails, electric drills, saws... yup.

As I said: not done yet.

Dream Time

Over at Plurk, to which most of my on-line contacts have gravitated, one of our friends mentioned a dream from last night which involved attempting to graft the head of a lobster onto a sea slug. That is so James P. Blaylock! It's like a perverse vivisection experiment his character Dr. Ignacio Narbondo might undertake!

And it has great "B" movie potential. Or, it would if this were 1958 rather than 2008.

As for me, I dreamed that I was looking on eBay to find the best volume discount on miniature laser pointers shaped like the Starship Enterprise. I don't know if anyone actually makes laser pointers modeled after the USS Enterprise, where the laser beam is emitted from the lower part of the saucer section like a phaser, but they really should! I would buy one! It's really a brilliant (ha!) idea, don't you agree?
