For there, silhouetted in the flickering candle light, stood the vampire himself. His eyes were wide, mesmerizing, and left the young girl transfixed before him. Dracula glided forward, his shadow falling over her, and grasping her slender neck he bared his fangs and bent slowly toward the insistent beating of her heart. But at that very moment, all the townspeople burst through the door and yelled "Surprise!" and blew noisemakers and gave him presents and brought in a huge birthday cake and Dracula was so happy to be included that he became a member of the PTA and joined the church choir.

The End








Yay! You found me!!
I've been waiting for you.


Thanks! :) It's good to hear, especially with all the turbonerds trying to relate the English language to binary math.

But there's an overarching principle to consider here: Movies shouldn't be poo.

"Britney Spears" is a marketing concept that just happens to centre around a teenage girl.
-- Gnomatron on why sex sells


The trail leads them to Count Dooku, and you know he's bad because his name sounds kind of like kidspeak for "turd."
-- salon.com on Episode II





Gnomatron is cool and likes Cognitive Science!
Witchiepoo is cute, especially her children.
Dustfromamoth is cute too, and she's back!
JerboaKolinowski is a genius, writes so well, and puts up with my "philisophical" questions.



I admit it, I'm addicted to Counting Crows.
Who else sings about the months, or about rain?

You tend to dream about whatever you were dwelling on as you fall asleep in my experience.
<Chiisuta>
I don't dream like that- otherwise I'd dream of being an adventurer almost every night.










Then wear the gold hat, if that will move her;
If you can bounce high, bounce for her too,
Till she cry, "Lover, gold-hatted, high-bouncing lover,
I must have you!"

Behold the Power of Cheese.
I really really love any and all kinds of cheese. I think it is the perfect food. It's simple. Cheese can be so basic and so gourmet, perfect for every aspect of my life. Sometimes I feel intellectual and need a fancy cheese. These are the days when I am a world traveller, smart, educated, worldly and knowledgable. I don't eat cheese on these days, I sample. Roquefort and Chiante. Brie and Pear. Nothing more exquisite than the light blending of the subltest of flavors.

On other days, I am as simple as the land. My life is that of the earth; I am forest, I am life, I am now. What you see is what you get and what you get is nothing but goodness. These days I eat the hardiest of cheeses, true through and through. Asiago, Colby, and the most honest of all, Cheddar.

Cheese is honest. It is a benevolent food, pure in color, form, and taste. Aristotle would have liked cheese, I imagine. What pleasure to partake in one of the last foods still to be crafted! Perhaps there is something in the time it takes. Perhaps it is in the pressing. Perhaps it in the shapes... oh the shapes! Wheels and rounds and wedges and cubes; spheres and gourds, slices and shreds!

Cheese Log:

  • 1/16/02 - Queso Blanco (good, came out a bit watery though)
  • 2/5/02 - Queso Blanco (came out better this time! actually looked like cheese)
  • 2/7/02 - Muenster (Wonderful! It actually tastes like Muenster! Its a bit salty though, so next time I'll rub in less)

Assault life's joys with the justified ferocity of cheese






What are we going to do tonight, Vladimir?
The same thing we do every night, Estragon: we're waiting for Godot.
