I've come across a couple of fun/interesting sites.  For all you jigsaw-puzzle lovers out there (I mean you CM) this site let's you do them online. It's a wonderful way to waste time *g*

Then there is this thought-provoking cartoon One from Column A, One from Column B-movie which brings a refreshing challenge to all the men in Hollywood who make movies/TV shows where a female character is raped and/or becomes pregnant because they can't think up anything else for her to do.

ETA: It took me 14:32 minutes to complete today's 80-piece squash puzzle - talk about whiling away your time!!

[livejournal.com profile] dolnmoon's latest entry reminded me that last year I'd posted a link to a "Carve a Halloween Pumpkin" site and here it is. Go practice your pumpkin-carving skills *g*

Any budding artists out there? I came across a couple of sites that lets you create your own art in the style of a master:

Mr Picassohead : it supposedly lets you create a picture in the style of you-know-who. I couldn't get it to work for me but then I'm probably doing something wrong or it just doesn't feel like working on a Monday.

Jackson Pollock : this one easily works and is a lot of fun. You too can make your own drips and splotches in the style of JP.

Someone named Pop Candy has a blog with TV's all-time best ... fonts? one of which is the one used in the opening credits of BtVS and apparently you can download it.

Jane Espenson (former BtVS writer) also has a blog which "is intended to help new writers tackle the job of writing those all-important spec scripts -- from picking the right show to spec, to developing an idea, to getting that dialogue exactly right, to giving the script that professional look. Also, I discuss my lunch, just for the heck of it." Check it out.

Ann Coulter is a hypocritical bitca!!! Sorry I just had to get that off my chest *g*

I've spent the past few hours web-surfing and thought I'd share my finds in case others out there need a laugh now that the workweek's begun after the long weekend.

I was over at Gregory K. Pincus' blog to check out what's new in the realm of Fibs and read his "About Me" description where he writes : "Long ago I was also an amateur crastinator, but I have long since moved to the pro ranks."        C'est moi *g*

The World's Coolest Animals where it is written that "No one has ever survived an attack by a koala... usually, after they pelt you senseless with Eucalyptis nuts, they drop from the branches of their tree with their awful fangs bared, screaming at the top of their lungs. They grab the face of their victim and basically tear him or her to bits. The only known method for avoiding a koala attack is to stay at home, inside, under the bed (with the lights off, of course) at ALL times. If you are attacked, scream "TIGER SNAKE" and fall to the ground. Sometimes, this tricks the koala into thinking it is about to be on TV. Koalas hate being on tv, so this might buy you enough time to get away."   Lol

I've been re-reading "Calvin and Hobbes" online and this one, posted on Sunday seems especially profound.

Loved this quote by Rep. Charles B. Rangel (D-N.Y.), second-most senior member of the Congressional Black Caucus. Rangel was interviewed on New York Public Television WLIW21 last Monday night and asked for his quick reaction to various people. The first was Bush.
"Well," Rangel said. "I really think that he shatters the myth of white supremacy once and for all; it shows that, in this great country, anybody can become president."
It would be funny if it wasn't true.

Came across this post here with a very clever idea for showing SD what the results of its latest legislation will be.

I rarely use smileys as I am not really that familiar with them but I found this site Smilies Unlimited with 1252 smilies in its database. This is Mr. Spock >:-I *g*

LOL

Stumbled across The 30-Second Bunnies Theatre Library which consists of short spoofs of popular movies performed by cartoon bunnies. Lol.

I was reading about "Eight Below" and came across the name of Moon Bloodgood who plays the pilot. I've googled and found out she's Korean, Irish and Dutch but I can't find out if that's her real name but what a name--just perfect for some character in the Buffyverse.

J. August Richards is going to be in "Conviction" on NBC playing an ADA. That braindump by the Senior Partners must really have stuck--I wonder if he'll be humming Gilbert & Sullivan *g*?

Well last night was a very interesting night of TV viewing. I started out by watching a syndicated episode of "Law & Order: Criminal Intent" called "Phantom" where at the end the murderer is threatening to kill his children. Right afterward was "Lost" where Rousseau traps a possible Other who it turns out was played by Michael Emerson who I had just seen playing the villain on "L&O:CI"!! Rousseau then wounds her captive saying "If I wanted to kill him, I would've killed him", which immediately reminded me of a line spoken by Delenn's (also played by Mira Furlan) Minbari compatriot Neroon (in the B5 episode "Grey 17 is Missing"): "If I wished him dead, he would be dead". The characters appeared to be channeling each other across space and time. I'm not liking Sawyer that much after the frog incident. In the Dharma outpost the countdown numbers were briefly replaced by what looked like Egyptian hieroglyphs. I caught site of a hook which is s and a bird which may one of several letters (it wasn't very clear) and a picture of a man kneeling which is the symbol for man plus a couple more. So now we have Egyptian mixed in with Sanskrit(dharma). Mystery #412 *g*.

I taped "Bones" which keeps on improving. Seeley let his inner Angelus out for a "walk" last night. The good news is that in 3 weeks it moves to 8 pm so I can watch both "Bones" and "Lost" leaving only "Invasion" and "L&O" to drive me crazy.

The best news of all--I just found out that James Marsters will return to "Smallville" next week. Hurray!!!

Found this funny site with Unfortunate Valentine's Cards. Lol.

Well our beloved JM was on "Smallville" for a couple of scenes. Is that the natural color of his hair? I think I loved his look as Charlemagne Bolivar on "Andromeda" and the beginning of BtVS S7--those lovely golden locks--most of all.
I haven't read DC comics since I was 15 but I seem to recall Aquaman's name was Arthur and his father a lighthousekeeper which is in keeping with what he said last night. His mother came from one of the 2 cities of Atlantis in the DC comicverse. One had water-breathing humans and the other had merpeople with tails like Lori Lemaris. I don't recall if DC ever reconciled the 2 different versions of Atlanteans.
Next week we get...vampires!!! JM gets to say "Clark, there's no such thing as vampires." I hear he isn't too happy with it all (including a vampire named Buffy). He may feel he's being exploited but at least he'll be onscreen.

Was over at [livejournal.com profile] spikedluv's lj and came across the funniest site: "40 Things That Only Happen In Movies" at http://www.nostalgiacentral.com/features/20moviethings.htm

Last Night

Last night I went to my local grocery store for a Yoplait Chocolate Mousse (yummy) but they were out of it. I decided to eat healthy and get a Columbo Blueberry (full of helpful phytochemicals) Yogurt but they didn't have it either. I finally settled for a Strawberry Yoplait. My best friend lives in Fargo where they have humongous supermarkets with every brand and variety that exists plus a post office and bakery. I was peeved at Campbell's for discontinuing their Tomato Bisque soup but I was maligning Campbells unnecessarily as they have it in Fargo. I'm suffering from supermarket-envy.

If I'd have had access to a computer then I would've gone to [livejournal.com profile] mock_the_stupid for a good laugh.

I watched "Nova" last night where they had a segment on goldfish surgery!! Admittedly it wasn't one of those tiny ones but one weighing a pound but still... I wonder if the vets treat tarantulas (just out of curiousity--I don't have one)? Check out the surgery at http://www.pbs.org/wgbh/nova/sciencenow/3214/04.html
