The other night I had a dream about Jon Bon Jovi. I had returned to Bradley University and seen some old friends, and most of the dream was about that, but at one point I went to the bookstore in the Peoria mall, and he was there.

JBJ: "Hey, man! How you doin'!"

me: "Uh, fine."

JBJ: "Hey, that's great. So, what's up?"

me: "Uh, not much. I just moved back to town."

JBJ: "Cool, man. Hey, we should hang out sometime."

me: "I guess so. Don't you still owe me money?"

JBJ: "Yeah. I'll pay it back. So, what are you doin' for New Year's?"

me: "I dunno, why?"

JBJ: "Cause we should hang out, man!"

me: "Are you having a party?"

JBJ: "Eh, no. They shut off the power in my apartment."

me: "Oh."

JBJ: "But we could have it at your place."

me: "Maybe. Look, I've got to get going."

And I walked away. He looked like he wanted to ask me if he could borrow a few bucks.

Sayonara, Summer

Russ, nice solo solution on that tough Music goo. You definitely earned those points. :-) For anyone curious, we once discussed player-created goos needing to be recognizeable in their gooed forms (as in, they should bear some resemblance both to human beings and to the source images), and I agreed to hold future goo creations to that standard, but this Music goo by Chris predates that standard, and there are still a few more in the queue from before that agreement.

We have a haunted or broken answering machine. Early in the afternoon, I was sitting on the couch in the living room playing a video game, and Kelly was beside me. Go »

Out of Order

Any Law & Order fans here? I'd like to ask about the Jack McCoy character, who is new to me as I catch up on old seasons on DVD, but is still on the show today so he must be popular. Go »
