Everything becomes a mess when president George Bush comes to speak at the factory: Benny has started dating a younger man without telling George. Like his father Count Dracula, Alucard is a vampire, a mythological creature that lives by sucking to the public on live television in The Colgate Comedy Hour with Abbott and Costello. .

But the milo vice its wordy own metes an alternative, whoever said, silently about borderline media.
One of my favorite ways to waste time is to search Leonard's weblog for randomish words.
Today I had much fun. I met Steve and his friend Michelle at brunch at Crepe de Vine on Shattuck and we had a fun conversation.
Steve gave me Christmas presents: As we were eating, Shweta, Nathaniel, and two of their friends walked in. After Steve and Michelle left, I continued talking and hanging out with the new crowd. Nathaniel even helped me out with my Hofstadter problem of yesterday. One new friend, Dan, is on a Peace Corps term in the Ukraine, and we conversed a bit in Russian; with the other, Zachary, I conversed at length about software, religion, and other mutual interests.
He once submitted NetHack nonkitten items to the robotfindskitten project.

I wrote all this while on hold with Pac Bell. I am still on hold with Pac Bell. Pac Bell, on the other hand, twice has tried to get me to opt-in to talk about other products and services from the SBC "family. I'm talking to a person. My phone service here will no longer exist as of sometime in the morning of 31 January Reading 02 Jan Zachary Weinberg, like Jeff Good, would not like to live in Israel, simply because of the heat, regardless of other facts and circumstances.
I've discovered that it's rather ambiguous to say, "I dislike the climate," because English speakers have so abused the metaphor of "climate" to refer to sociologal and political situations. Sometime this month I will hold a party, a housecooling akin to Seth's a while back.
After all, in my new place I'll be living with four others and I'll have fewer opportunities to throw parties. So, it's coming; stay tuned. Salon is running a Red vs. Today I entered a used books store in El Portal and ended up buying The Gift of Fear by Gavin de Becker, whom my sister and I used to mock back in the late nineties when he showed up on Oprah Winfrey's talk show and the like.
Now that I live in a city sans parents, and personal security concerns me every damn day, I'm much less inclined to mock the "security expert" and much more inclined to listen to his advice.
Don't try to explain away your intuition that "something is wrong"; trust that you are an expert at predicting other humans' behaviour, as you've been doing it all your life; remember that everybody is pretty much alike and context explains a lot. This is basically The Social Animal, chapter eight the "tips and tricks" sectiononly about personal safety rather than love and relationships in general.
I read it out loud as a checklist e. He asked whether the checklist was intended to test how long someone could go without getting sarcastic. Reading 03 Jan Today a year ago I met Leonard. I like myself better this year. Must leave very soon. Argh, I thought of something in the shower that I can't remember now. This morning on Morning Edition -- gee, it feels like a Saturday except they say it's a Friday -- Bob Edwards was interviewing Kenneth Turan and I never would have known that it was the Los Angeles Ogre except that I woke up in the middle of the interview and Edwards ID'd him again at the end.
You know what was a good movie beginning? That movie had a good beginning. Yesterday I had one of the best ice-cream-eating experiences of my life. Leonard and I shared some mint chocolate chocolate chip at a Double Rainbow franchise and discussed the in-store music piped-in radio.

I didn't need directions from anyone or any maps to get from one to the other. And it makes carless travel much easier! It won't let me log in; it just keeps returning me to the login page without telling me what went wrong. It forces me to go through too many screens and times out on processes on booking tickets.
During my "vacation," I hope to get some real writing done. Some of those columns I proposed for the Daily Cal before they rejected me, and an attempt at some fiction, perhaps a short story or short play. I am responsible for the meeting of Seth and Leonard at some party of mine a while backand Seth is responsible for Leonard meeting me.
Seth was explaining something about free software or Windows Refund Day. At one point he asked if we ever read Slashdot. And we said, "What's that? And so we started reading Slashdotand Slashdot begat a link to Segfault, and Segfault had lots of humorous writings by Leonard and begat a link to Leonard's siteand I started reading his stuff long before I ever really had a chance to meet him, but I jumped at the chance when it did come.
Who else wants to go to a sketch comedy festival? Finished The Gift of Fear and will have to talk more about it later, especially regarding de Becker's pet peeve: I wish I could tell my mother "no means no! Reading 04 Jan A necessarily rhetorical question: Do parents who argue in front of their children realize what they're doing to their kids?
I recently found that, because of my own family-friend commitments and commitments my mother made for me, I have to call or e-mail four different males: Manoj, Ravi, Raffik, and Giri, for purposes of giving praise, giving advice, finding out what's wrong, and probing the possibility of a marital alliance, respectively.
I am getting by with a little help from my friends. Specifically, Jeana, Steve, Zack, Angel, and Leonard have given me precious email, thank you, thank you, thank you.
Now I have to update my weblogging software NewsBruiser. I should be glad that Leonard added functionality. I have to reply to a lot of email. By the way, Mr. President, thank you for agreeing to be on my show. I was just as shocked as everyone here is, I promise you. How's Tuesday for you? I've got Frank Rich, but we can bump him. And I mean bump him. I know a guy. See who we've got here tonight.
They still support Rumsfeld. Right, you guys aren't retired yet, right? Right, they still support Rumsfeld. Look, by the way, I've got a theory about how to handle these retired generals causing all this trouble: Come on, we've got a stop-loss program; let's use it on these guys. I've seen Zinni and that crowd on Wolf Blitzer. If you're strong enough to go on one of those pundit shows, you can stand on a bank of computers and order men into battle.
Jesse Jackson is here, the Reverend. Haven't heard from the Reverend in a little while. I had him on the show. Very interesting and challenging interview. You can ask him anything, but he's going to say what he wants, at the pace that he wants.
It's like boxing a glacier. Enjoy that metaphor, by the way, because your grandchildren will have no idea what a glacier is. Justice Scalia is here. May I be the first to say, you look fantastic. Scalia is seen laughing hysterically. John McCain is here. Somebody find out what fork he used on his salad, because I guarantee you it wasn't a salad fork.
This guy could have used a spoon! There's no predicting him. By the way, Senator McCain, it's so wonderful to see you coming back into the Republican fold.Mexican Donald Trump with George Lopez
So glad you've seen the light, sir. Mayor Nagin is here from New Orleans, the chocolate city! Yeah, give it up. Mayor Nagin, I'd like to welcome you to Washington, D. And a graham cracker crust of corruption. It's a Mallomar, I guess is what I'm describing, a seasonal cookie. And of course he brought along his lovely wife Valerie Plame. Oh, what have I said?
President, I meant to say he brought along his lovely wife Joe Wilson's wife. Patrick Fitzgerald is not here tonight? And, of course, we can't forget the man of the hour, new press secretary, Tony Snow. Secret Service name, "Snow Job. Took the second toughest job in government, next to, of course, the ambassador to Iraq. Got some big shoes to fill, Tony. Big shoes to fill. Scott McClellan could say nothing like nobody else.
McClellan, of course, eager to retire. Really felt like he needed to spend more time with Andrew Card's children. President, I wish you hadn't made the decision so quickly, sir. I was vying for the job myself. I think I would have made a fabulous press secretary. I have nothing but contempt for these people. I know how to handle these clowns. In fact, sir, I brought along an audition tape and with your indulgence, I'd like to at least give it a shot.
So, ladies and gentlemen, my press conference. It opens with him at a podium, addressing the assembled Washington press corps. I have a brief statement: OK, let's see who we've got here today.
David Gregory nods Sir Nerdlington! Terry Moran nods Oh, Doubting Thomas, always a pleasure. Helen Thomas smiles And Suzanne Mal -- hello!! Suzanne Malveaux stares at Colbert, looking unhappy. Colbert mimics putting a phone to his ear and mouths "call me.
Will the Vice President be available soon to answer all questions himself? I've already addressed that question. You pointing to another reporter. Walter Cronkite, the noted CBS anchor. Ah, no, he's the former CBS anchor. Well, well, how do you guys feel about that? You, tousle-haired guy in the back. Oh, look, we woke David Gregory up. Did Karl Rove commit a crime? Colbert turns to Rove Karl, pay attention please!
Do you stand by your statement from the fall of when you were asked specifically about Karl, and Elliott Abrams, and Scooter Libby, and you said "I've gone to each of those gentlemen, and they have told me that they are not involved in this. Nah, I was just kidding! No, you're not finishing. You're not saying anything! You stood at that podium and said. Ah, that's where you're wrong. Just had it delivered today.
Get your facts straight, David. The notion that you're going to stand before us after having commented with that level of detail and tell the people watching this that somehow you've decided not to talk. We see Gregory's lips continue moving, but can't hear any sound coming out. If I can't hear you, I can't answer your question. I have to move on. After the investigation began, after the criminal investigation was underway, you said.
Colbert presses a button on the podium and fast-forwards through most of Moran's question. All of a sudden, you have respect for the sanctity of a criminal investigation? No, I never had any respect for the sanctity of a criminal investigation. You're going to be sorry. What are you going to do, Helen, ask me for a recipe? Your decision to invade Iraq has caused the deaths of thousands Colbert's smile fades of Americans and Iraqis, wounds of Americans and Iraqis for a lifetime.
OK, hold on Helen, look. Every reason given, publicly at least, has turned out not to be true. My question is why did you really want to go to war? Helen, I'm going to stop you right there. Sorry, Helen, I'm moving on. Colbert tries to turn her volume off, but the knob falls off his controls. Various reporters start shouting questions at Colbert. Guys, guys, please don't let Helen do this to what was a lovely day. Reporters keep shouting at him.
No, no, no, no, no. I'm not listening to you! Look what you did, Helen! Helen Thomas glowers at Colbert.
I'm out of here! Colbert pulls back the curtain behind him, desperately trying to flee. He says, "There is a wall here! Colbert has difficulty finding a door from which to exit the room, echoing Bush's experience in China. He finally finds the door and hurries through it. It reeks in there! I've never been so insulted in my life! Colbert continues walking away. We hear sinister-sounding music playing. We see Helen Thomas walking behind Colbert. Right away, I have to wonder: They started east of the city, and headed east.
So am I missing something here? This right away makes me think something is perhaps amiss in this story. Forgetting for the moment that this story is already somewhat inaccurate, what do we make of the idea of a notable star in the sky?
The quotation above is from the King James version of the Bible, translated from Greek, and is similar to other versions of the book. The word in the Greek version is aster, which means literally "star", but could be fairly construed as some sort of astronomical event other than a simple star. What could it have been?
The obvious thing to do is to think of bright astronomical phenomena such as a planetary conjunction when two or more planets pass very near each other in the skya comet, and a nova or supernova. Events like these have been exhaustively searched for. A Google search will yield dozens and dozens of potential phenomena.
The legend is almost certainly impossible. It has to do with the east again.
