The dream catcher in front of me is going crazy. I've seen that before. It's the Apple 1984 ad, the one they commissioned Ridley Scott to direct for the launch of the Macinitosh computer. The most expensive ad in the entire history of selling beige boxes to puzzled posers. **What the hell are they doing with that?**
**Law of Contagion.** Ramona sounds tense. **Very strong imagery of conformity versus mold-breaking,concealing conformity disguised as mold-breaking. Ever wondered why Mac users are so glassy-eyed about their boxes?**

In my many years I have come to a conclusion that one useless man is a shame, two is a law firm, and three or more is a congress.

Of all the preposterous assumptions of humanity over humanity, nothing exceeds most of the criticisms made on the habits of the poor by the well-housed, well- warmed, and well-fed.
- Herman Melville

There's something to think about.

I slept rather soundly today, woke up at 7 and then went right back to sleep, waking up at 9. I was indeed sleepy.

Soon, I will have to go to work, but first I will relax a bit at Panera Bread, having lunch and some light reading.

[livejournal.com profile] taogrl's party was quite pleasant last night. Her formula was Drinking, Dancing, Cake. And Drink we did, dance we did, eat cake, we did. Also, the hors d'eouvres were quite nummy. People seemed to enjoy the cakes, though there were some leftover. Folks ate around my eiffel tour center, so it became perched on the coast of cake like a beacon for cake eaters everywhere.

[livejournal.com profile] taogrl's coworkers from her old bank job came and were quite delightful. The 25 yr old contingent came, as well, and I am now educated in the ways of the "stripper move" on the dance floor. I imagine these girls at home practicing this for hours, yet stopping just short of seeking an actual stripper's career.

It's warm here, in Elk Grove. However, it is not yet miserable. I'm glad I'll be working in air conditioned areas, though.

These are some enjoyable quotes that showed up in my google page this morning:

When I do good, I feel good; when I do bad, I feel bad, and that is my religion.
- Abraham Lincoln

I believe that a scientist looking at nonscientific problems is just as dumb as the next guy.
- Richard Feynman

Life at Casa de Anne has been somewhat busy, but good. I have recovered from my weekend of socializing and music playing. I have been experimenting with my concept of Canary Creams, which will be a cream puff approach. Yet I shall endeavor to make animal shaped cream puffs. Last night I ran a few tests. I need to control the amount of puff-stuff I put into the animal shaped cutter, first off. Also, I need to cook them a little longer. The metal cutters survived well in the oven. Next week I shall make a variety of custards and fill the puffs.
