This is the third morning in a row on which I've awakened to the sound of a mouse loudly chewing on our bureau in the corner. I hate these fucking mice. The mass genocide of last week has quieted them down some, but they're still around. We see them maybe three times a day, instead of twenty. We bought some d-Con and put it around the house: In the bedroom by the bureau, in the kitchen on the sink, in the kitchen by the refrigerator because they like that corner, and here in the office where I keep hearing them go. They've already found it in the kitchen because I saw it scattered around a little bit. The two problems with d-Con: It takes 4-5 days to work, which is not quick enough for me, and I probably won't see the body afterwards, so I can't modify the kill count for it. Oh well. Die, mice, die.

100 Years, 100 Heroes & Villains

The American Film Institute really likes Top-100 lists. They release a new one each year with the goal of getting people talking about cinema, and I'm happy to oblige. Go »

The Other Side of the Mountain

The 2003 Oscar nominations are out (here). I'll have the contest going around 7pm. The biggest surprise (since the "Matrix" sequels being snubbed for visual effects was already known) was the absence of "Cold Mountain" for best picture, not to mention director or actress. Go »

Fifty Shades of Respectability

Could/will Fifty Shades of Grey ever be taken seriously as literature? Perhaps at some point in the future where it represents this historical period in popular American culture? Go »

Firefox vs goo.tc

This may be a fruitless question to ask, but is anybody unable to reach this site in Firefox? Last night, Amy contacted me to tell me that my site had been down all day – which was news to me, since I'd been using it throughout the evening. Go »
