Happy Independence Day to my American friends. And as requested, Happy Divorce Day to my British friends! :)

Off to the DVD player. First up: "1776"!

I don't need a new Kindle. I don't need a new Kindle. I DO NOT NEED A NEW KINDLE!

Damn you, Amazon.

Wake up

To Carleen Bradfield Turner,
Your son is a rapist; your husband is an enabler. Deal with it.

"He said, 'No, that's where I draw the line. I'll beat 'em up, but I don't want to kill 'em.' And the government said, 'Well, if you won't kill people, we won't let you beat 'em up.' " - George Carlin

As much as I agreed (and still do) with Ali's refusal to go to Vietnam, this quote never fails to make me smile.

If I were Tom Ellis, I'd be pretty pissed at John Boehner calling Ted Cruz "Lucifer in the flesh".

I mean, ::shudder::!

Identical cousins all the way!

Good night, Patty. Good night, Cathy.

Of course the question is whether the FBI and "a third party" actually broke into the iPhone in question, or whether Apple caved and opened it for them (with the promise that the gov would keep up the pretense that there was no previously existing backdoor). Either way, Apple doesn't look too good right now.

Give me a moment while I dry my tears. ;)

Have a great day, everyone.

So the Federal government is closed, but Harvard South is open. It's a good thing I enjoy farce, even when it's at my expense. My car is free, but I do wonder how the roads are; I guess I'll find out. And given that a very large percentage of our students are commuters, I wonder how many will be in my class today. Film at eleven.

One of the more annoying things about a major snow storm is that every single broadcast station has gone to full-time news and weather reporting. We've got it, guys: it's snowing pretty hard, the wind is blowing pretty hard, parts of Long Island have already lost power, evacuations are now mandatory in some of the towns along the shore. Just like during the last big storm. Just like the next one. Arrrgh!

Fortunately, I have a shiny new set of the S8 DVDs of Doctor Who, thanks to BFFHS. My big plans for the day are to drink hot chocolate and watch the Doctor.

Such a shock, and so sad.

Isaac Asimov would have been 96 today. Happy Birthday, sir, wherever you may be!

Just FYI

Charlie Rose just informed me that Ohio voters turned down the legalization of marijuana for both medical and recreational purposes. Based on Sunday's 60 Minutes report, I'm guessing that it was because the heroin cartels don't want any competition.

(Apparently I'm a day behind everyone else. Ah, well. It's new to me!)

Apparently, there is a new teaser trailer for Episode VII out; I don't get to see it, though, because I'm not on Instagram. (Or was it Vine?) Whatever. I can wait.

However, I'm still bouncing with joy over the announcement that Adele's new album will be out in November! Yay!!!
chalcedony: (science blue)
I just realized that Thor is James Kirk's father. Which actually explains quite a lot. ;)

* In my defense, I only saw the movie "Thor" for the first time a couple of weeks ago.
