A friendly little saucer leaves the Red Planet
Red. Blah. It's a little too wide for a subject. Too many things came to mind. The first was the line from Clive Barker's Books of Blood: "Everybody is a book of blood; wherever we're opened, we're red." However, I did the horror shtick last week. (Besides, who needs horror when there's so many cool things in real life?) Other thoughts were the red-shift of starlight moving away from us (sort of like the Doppler Effect in sound,) Santa Claus, roses, and of course, Leo McKern in HELP! as a Thuggee cult leader who wants to sacrifice Ringo, but can't until he is painted red. So I went with my age old fantasy of aliens coming to take me home, back to the normal people.
My head's felt all day like it's full of cotton candy, accompanied by a general feeling of anxiety. I don't know if its the heat in this apartment baking me like a convection oven or what. At least I didn't have to work today. The money's good, but I'm so tired. I like the people I'm working with & for, & they seem very happy with me. Why can't I work so hard for myself as I do for someone else?
Take care, my friends.
PS! Go to the 2007 Bloggies, and vote for Elena (aka French Toast Girl) for Best Designed Weblog! Then tell all your friends to go & vote for her too! Well? What are you waiting for?
PPS- Not to sound jealous or anything, but I'm I the only one to notice that ALL of YouTube's featured Director Videos (across the top and in the right side margin) lately are provided by networks? So much for encouraging the little guy...
PPPS- A kiss on the nose to whoever can tell me what this post's title is from.
4(P)+S- Too late- the winner is Larry Lee, who recognized that the title came from here. (And thanks for deferring the nose-kiss to my kids!)
