Two amusements that began a meh day.

Gnomeo and Juliet:

a computer-animated Shakespeare adaptation about garden gnomes in love

A Shakespearean tragedy seems to be odd fodder for this.

McSweeney’s Internet Tendency: Selections From H.P. Lovecraft’s Brief Tenure as a Whitman’s Sampler Copywriter.:

Few men dare ask the question “What is toffee, exactly?” All those who have investigated this substance are now either dead or insane.

Happy Birthday, Mr. Lovecraft. While I’m not a fan, no one can deny that you’ve been influential.


I did not sleep very well last night.  Too hot, kind of uncomfortable, and then the alarm rang at 5.  My play at disc was probably affected.  I felt decent, was running fairly well, but I was in the way more often than not.  I’m not sure if I threw the disc during the game, though I did manage to catch a score.  Decent D, I guess.

I’ve gotten very little done work-wise today and will probably head to bed after I post this.  Just pretty blah all around today, not wanting to deal with much of anything outside of reading fiction that is not my own.
