crystal blue persuasion

i returned and saw under the sun
that the race is not to the swift
nor the battle to the strong
[something] ne the yet bread to the wise
nor yet riches to men of understanding
nor yet favor to met of skill
but time and chance happeneth to them all
mwahahaha.... yes, i did just [attempt to] quote the bible. or is it the bible? i have no idea, actually. i assume it is, but have to admit i do not know. it popped into my head just now as i was about to sit down to write my first ramble in quite some time. i was hoping for some quotation about returning to stand out at me, and that's what i came up with. surprisingly, i know two bible versus by heart. the one above and the other one includes this:
i will strike down upon thee with great vengeance and fur-ious anger those who attempt to poison and destroy my brothers. and you will know my name is the lord when i lay my vengeance upon thee.
yes, it is true that both bible verses that i know are from cds - the latter from the pulp fiction soundtrack (EXCELLENT) and the former - can you guess from where? if you guessed color me badd's second album, time and chance, you are correct! yes, the group that sang "i wanna sex you up" also quotes the bible. or some other religious-sounding book. its all the same to me. ANYWAY... what was i going to say? oh right! back to blogging! i unintentionally took some time off during my vacation and have been back for the past week, but i have been oddly busy. it takes a lot of time and dedication to catch up on all my recorded shows - my dvr was 97% full when i got back. whew! but i persisted and am now down to less than 30% (some of which has been added after my return). i have also been running errands and just... i dont even know. keeping busy or something.

and i was inspired to get back into the swing of things by this article about people who start blogs and then stop. and i shall not stop! errr... at least not yet. maybe once i have a job again and am a respectable human being. until then, ramble on i shall! so, for those of you who keep coming back, thank you. and in the coming days and weeks you can expect fun stories from my vacation, exploits from fargo, and hearing about my [dreaded] job search. you read right. i am going to attempt to find a job that is not selling part of my body. (which reminds me i have to start again tomorrow...)

and for some sunday funday stuff, here s a video that i really enjoyed

admittedly, i was turned on to it by this article on boing boing. AND i was SHOCKED because they didn't mention mannequin in the article and i noticed it right away. which just tells everyone that i watch waaay toooo many movies. and maybe too much tv. but i would never admit to that.

with that, i shall end. i am off to have some homemade chili (sans maize, merde!), finish painting a bedroom, warm my feet, drink some martini bianco (mmmm) and ... maybe i'll be ambitious and re-start reading the book i started on vacation and haven't finished yet. but that souds like a lot. and it's sunday. i hate sundays. but that's for another time. a bientot!!
