I updated and e-mailed some forms I used to organize the Cougar Pride duck race paperwork to my dad yesterday. In his reply, he said he "twisted her [my mom's] clown nose and begged to have her there [at the duck race]" this year. I'm still laughing at that.

Via bookslut, parents in Utah are upset that their children are looking at a library book with artistic partial nudity. I boggled when I read "The question to me is not whether the book has a good story line, but does it sexually stimulate young boys?". Um, yeah.

While waiting in the checkout line to ring up a loaf of bread yesterday, I got distracted by a cart of clearance items full of sparkling deodorant for 10c each. After teasing Vogon that he'd have to take a picture of my underarm after I put some on at home, he joked I should go back and buy a dollar's worth, then send them out to my readers. I passed, but if anyone's interested, I can see if they still have it out today. (:

And if you're still looking for your daily dose of cute, I recommend these letterpressed invitations and an adorable fuzzy laptop case.

I am desperate for some music for a potential road trip next weekend. How would I go about getting you a list to make CDs for me? You're the best for helping me out with this. I hope you're having a great week! :)

What kind of music are you looking for? Are you interested in audio books or radio dramas? Are there any specific artists or genres you don't like?

I can draw you up a general list of what we've got (probably by artist, though I can loosely group them by genre first), you decide what you want and I'll burn you some discs. (:

I don't like rap or country of any kind.

The only audio book I am interested in is Anderson Cooper's Dispatches from the Edge.

As for musical specifics, I could email you a list of specific songs I'm looking for, that would probably help. Where to?

I just picked up the unabridged Dispatches From The Edge from iTunes! It's 5 hours, 6 minutes in three parts, so I'll burn it to three discs for you. (:

oddharmonic at livejournal.com forwards to my regular e-mail address.

I have a gigantic closet crush on Anderson Cooper. The dad of one of Laurel's classmates looks like him and when I mentioned it to his wife, she laughed and said, "He gets that a lot." (:

From personal experience, pretty much anything can sexually stimulate young boys. Better tear down those statues in the park...

Speaking of statues, one in Paris was fenced off to prevent lewd rubbing: http://news.bbc.co.uk/2/hi/europe/3975607.stm

I thought it was hilarious when I noticed the breasts had been rubbed shiny on the women representing the continents at the entrance to the Capitol Building in Washington, D.C., as were the breasts in the wall with bas-relief body parts at the FDR Memorial. (If I remember correctly, that wall is adjacent to the oversized statue of his dog Fala.)

When I was a little burrito, I got aroused reading The Dark Is Rising books and wanted the character Will to be my boyfriend.

The illustrations are gorgeous. Apparently, some parents are too uptight. We only have to look at the content we watched or read when we were little to see how things have changed. The Muppet Show for example was not afraid to feature things that would be taboo to talk about now (Miss Piggy jilted and pregnent on the alter).

When I was little, mom read Poe's stories to me and Dr Seuss. What's more, I wanted to hear Poe, not just the Dr Seuss. Messed up by today's standards? Maybe, but not to me.

Also, I'm game for sparkly stuff, if you feel like sending.

*laughs* the glitter anti stinkum sure would be a mood lifter, would it not? :D "lookit my hollers, they sparkle!"

and you gift me with your friendship, every time you post, darlin girl.
