Jamie McJack (boobquake participant above) always reminds me of Sadie. For myself, I've lost some cuppage this year, what with the recent health improvements. Unfortunately, it's a very cool, overcast and windy day. Not good for Boobquake involvement.

I'll try again later to get a pic.

I'm actually quite impressed with a couple of new shows I'm enjoying, listed here with some description. Given that I've always hated network tv and really prefer documentaries, you may infer as you like.

Cupid - a very Guido-like Eros has landed in NYC to pair up pessimistic New Yorkers. References to Zeus "off his meds. Again.", his mother "she brought lots of Uncles around, it probably made me a bit commitment shy", and watching him pair up folks without actually using any Godlike powers. Just his amazing ability to network, which is amazing. Oh, and he's a bartender with a crush on a local psychiatrist (who thinks he's delusional since he tells her he's the God of Love). Gently charming, lots of good snickers.

Life After People - My cynical little anarchist-wannabe soul loves this. Imagine all human life on Earth is gone (isn't it lovely?), this show explores how things will revert back to the wild. Which animals will survive (horses & elephants escaped from zoos) and which ones won't (dogs will revert to mutts within a few generations). Each episode takes two cities or areas at a time, then watches them destroy over time - Kudzu takes over the SouthEast, LA becomes a desert again, Washington D.C. reverts to a swamp, Long Island floods. The Gargoyles on the Chrysler blg begin dropping to Earth after 50 years, fossils are being eaten by Pyrite and destroy the dinosaur bones in museums. Oh, and the beer explodes. What else do you need to know?

Top Gear - Listen, if you're not already watching BBC's Top Gear just to see how the producers torture the guys with Challenges, I'm not sure what to do with you. Consider yourself strapped to a chair, given only ale to drink through a straw and pull up Top Gear Challenges on YouTube to laugh yourself breathless for awhile.

The Mentalist & Lie to Me - I'm putting these together for a reason, they are somewhat similar to each other. Both use their tricks of the trade (lots of NLP) to catch criminals, the former is a ex-tv psychic now working for the CBI (police) and the latter a professional consultant. If you've ever been amazed by folks who have done the "Making the Cross makes you Submissive" trick on you, you'll love these.

So what are you watching?

He's doing great, we haven't had an accident at the house in days. That said, he had two accidents at the groomers yesterday - he doesn't know how to signal that he needs to go out. Here he just uses the dog door. We support this by escorting him outdoors when we get up at 4am, so it's the first thing he does every day and we escort him out before bed, so it's the last thing he does every day. And since the dogs are constantly going in and out, he's had ample opportunity to tinkle outdoors. Now, if I could just convince him not to pee on the porch! This was an issue with Tracker, some may recall, but it (pardon the pun) petered out. *WEG*

Flash has been much better behaved since we brought Dozer home. Instead of getting into mischief when he's bored, he has Dozer to play with. And curl up with at night, though Flash is under the covers doing so while Dozer is on top. Watching the two of them run through the yard together, shoulder to shoulder, you'd think they were harnessed together. Charge of the Light Brigade appears to be their theme song. I promise to get this on video once the temperature creeps up into the fifties again!

Gracie, well that's been a slightly different story. She can't seem to wrap it around her border collie brain that Dozer doesn't need herding. And she's none to pleased by the rather loud way Dozer & Flash play - so what often begins as her joining in the wrestling fray, ends in her attacking Dozer. Poor Dozer, for his part, thinks Gracie is trying to play with him even once things have gone south he's still darting in to play. Oy.

Libby is having a ball. She adores playing with Dozer, they've even groomed each other, etc. Nursing, however, she only does with Flash. Dozer is not the Mommy! As I speak, she's napping up on top of the scanner on the Watchtower where she can look disdainfully down at the dogs at her convenience.

Your result for What Planet are You From? Test...

You are from Uranus!

33% Uranus

Well, how about that? You are from Uranus!

Uranus is a bit unusual in that it kind of tilts to its side. They think that might be because it was involved in some kind of collision with another planet or huge asteroid at some time. Uranus also has nine rings. It was discovered in 1871 and is the third largest planet in our solar system.

Uranus was named after the Greek father of the sky. It is said that he come to the planet to mate with Gaia, but he hated the children that she bore. Hmmm. Does that mean that you don’t like very many humans?

What does this say about you?

Well, it means that you have a very strong personality. You like being different. You are just one of those people that are hard to describe. You like to make people think because you realize that life is always changing.

You have lots of ideas and could possibly be an inventor. You enjoy learning about new things and trying things out. You are definitely a doer and a creator. Give you a rubber band, a paper clip, and a ball point pin and I’m sure you could manage to do something very interesting and unusual with it.

Intelligence becomes you!

"Verbal-linguistic intelligence has to do with words, spoken or written. People with verbal-linguistic intelligence display a facility with words and languages. They are typically good at reading, writing, telling stories and memorizing words and dates. They tend to learn best by reading, taking notes, listening to lectures, and via discussion and debate. They are also frequently skilled at explaining, teaching and oration or persuasive speaking. Those with verbal-linguistic intelligence learn foreign languages very easily as they have high verbal memory and recall, and an ability to understand and manipulate syntax and structure.

Careers which suit those with this intelligence include writers, lawyers, philosophers, journalists, politicians and teachers." (Wikipedia)

They say everybody writes a journal with the hope that someday somebody will read it. I think most people in the explicitly-public LJ-land list interests in the hope that someday somebody will ask about them. This meme, like a dating service, turns all that hoping-somebody-will-ask into a straightforward request. Viva communication!

Explicitly request it in a comment below and I will choose 7 of your LJ profile interests for you to explain/write about.

Aradia - I've been a Charles Leland fan for years, especially his "Songs of the Seas" and "Etruscan Remains". I find I like the idea of the Gods sending down a leader to teach witchcraft, freedom and rebellion to the masses. We have an outdoor statue supervising the Spiral Walk out front dedicated to her.

Chabad - while controversial, Chabad House is a modern Chassidic Jewish community. They are absolutely focused on communication, continuing education and questioning their ecstatic faith. Their take on Kabbalah is particularly engrossing.

Dexter - I've always been interested in Forensic Psychology (stick with me here) and this very sympathetic, funny take on a serial killer's life is absolutely engrossing.

Ishtar - a Babylonian goddess I've just begun a relationship with, very similar to Astarte in the north and Astarted (Semetic). She is the goddess of love, fertility and war. Her wrath could not be stopped and she delighted in ruining the lives of her lovers.

Hers is the original Descent of the Goddess, which differs greatly from either Inanna's (Sumerian), Demeter's or Wicca's own. Her lover Tammuz, a fertility God who dies each year, is similar to the Horned God in several ways, different in others. It ends with: "On the day when Tammuz plays for me on the flute of lapis lazuli, playing it for me with the porphyry ring. Together with him, play ye for me, ye weepers and lamenting women! That the dead may rise up and inhale the incense."

Scrying - I've always had a way with reflective surfaces and use several forms of divination based on touch and vision. From this, I've amassed a large quantity of glass balls and crystal ones mostly as gifts from friends. In Judaism, the sacred seeing stones Urim (guilt) and Thummim (Innocence) were put into the sacred breastplate of the High Priests of the Temple. Others claim these were a single stone with two distinct sides, or two stones used in a pouch for Ordeal divinations. Either way, I've always adored and used multiple scrying techniques.

Stellar deities - For the last few years, I've become very interested in how stellar deities (i.e. deities of stars instead of moons or planets) differ from other celestial divinities. Among these, interestingly enough, are the origins of the great Archangels.

Vinyl cafe - A CBC production, somewhat similar to "Prarie Home Companion", but not as shlumpy. The host Stuart McLean is a wonderful story teller, unrepentant sentimentalist and music lover. What I adore about Stuart is his humanity - when calling and getting a wrong number, he nonetheless heard something in the teen's voice and asked how the kid was doing. What followed was a heart-wrenching sharing of his parents' pending divorce and an ongoing relationship between a troubled kid and one of Canada's National Treasures. Unlike PHC, I've found so many great musical artists through this show that I wouldn't otherwise found.
