Saw the tandem bike racing in the Commonwealth Games today.  Seems like a really good sport for people who like the up-close smell of another person’s sweaty butt crack.

When I say I want to read the book before seeing the movie, I don’t want brownie points or bragging rights. I want to be able to read the book with my imagined world and idea of the characters without the movie’s influence at least once. After you see the movie there’s always some part of it that sticks in your head for a long time and you lose the enjoyment of making it up yourself.

I give my girls delicious watermelon, and what do they do?  They eat the rind first.  They are not the brightest piggies ever.

My pigs do the same thing.  And with broccoli, they prefer the stems rather than the floret bits.  So I eat the tasty parts and just give them the garbage bits, and everyone is happy.
