When you see this, post a quote from 'Dr. Who' on your own LJ.

[This is all [ profile] mortari's fault, BTW]

There were too many good ones out there to post just one. And chosing two was still very hard.

Reinette [to the 10th Doctor]: "One may tolerate a world of demons for the sake of an angel."
Reinette Poisson, Mistress to the King of France, "The Girl in the Fireplace [2.4]"

The Doctor [about Rose Tyler]: "I've seen fake gods and bad gods and demi gods and would-be gods; out of all that - out of that whole pantheon - if I believe in one thing... just one thing... I believe in her. "
The 10th Doctor "The Satan Pit [2.9]"

Just a bit of Dr Love for a Monday.

I know 'Weird Shit' [tm] happens everywhere, but more and more of it seems to be happening in the general of the Seattle-Tacoma Puget Sound Metroplex [what I call the geographical area between Olympia up to Everett and west to Bremerton]. Here's another one - one of the odder things recently.

News story about guy who blew himself and his house up today.

Along with the fact we had, in this same area, the weather dropped to the mid 30's last night with ice pellets, heavy rain, thunder and lightning and even snow, again. Where Sat and Sunday was bright and sunny, temps in the 70's and 50's at night.


ADDENDA: The guy who blew himself up was a sharing a house. The folks who owned the house that was blown up advertised for someone to share the house with them on Craig's List. And evidently they didn't know he had a criminal record that included being a registered sex offender.

So the moral of the story is: ' Always know who you've got living in your home with you.'

ONE. Give people more than they expect and do it cheerfully.

TWO. Marry a man/woman you love to talk to. As you get older, their conversational skills will be as important as any other.

THREE. Don't believe all you hear, spend all you have or sleep all you want

FOUR. When you say, 'I love you,' mean it.

FIVE. When you say, 'I'm sorry,' look the person in the eye.

SIX. Be engaged at least six months before you get married.

SEVEN. Believe in love at first sight.

EIGHT. Never laugh at anyone's dream. People who don't have dreams don't have much.

NINE. Love deeply and passionately. You might get hurt but it's the only way to live life completely.

TEN. In disagreements, fight fairly. No name calling.

ELEVEN. Don't judge people by their relatives.

I guess it's lucky I don't currently work because I don't think that even my 'The Government certifies me as crazy' VA card would keep me from being killed off by someone if I used the ThinkGeek Annoy-A-Tron. And take a moment to check out the photos under the 'action shots' tab.

Well, another NorWesCon's come and gone. #31 has been put to bed, at least for me. I'm sure the concom is still digging out from the four day mini-marathon of sleep deprivation, set-up, take down and hearing things like 'Okay, has anyone seen where I put that last bundle of cable ties? Some Neanderthal want's me to peace bond his club.'

That sort of thing.

Just another day at the con. And other then a couple of people who seem to go out of their way to harsh my personal space, things were good. I want to thanks [ profile] crazedcamel, [ profile] amycat1959 and a couple of others for the offer of a quick, shallow pit and a few bags of quick lime. And to Rocelyn for just being and understanding.

For those who don't know, I have this wonderful work-trade agreement with [ profile] amycat1959 who owns Book Universe - a wonderful traveling book store that makes the rounds of various SF&F, gamer, actor and other cons. The deal is she pays my membership and I schlep books: unload, unpack, sort, helper, repack, reload, etc. I are a minion. :} It's tiring, but in a good way and it's fun. The last con was NorWesCon31 and she did good, I had fun and all is well.

This year some of the concom set up and slammed together a last minute donation project to help raise matching funds for Alzheimer research. In Dec of 2007 Terry Pratchett [a UK writer best known for his 'Discworld' books for those who don't know] announced that he was suffering from early-onset Alzheimer. Early this year he donated $1,000,000 US for clinical research into the disease. Fans have taken up the call and started an Internet fund raiser called Match It for Pratchett. NorWesCom was hoping to raise $2,000 over the four day con. But fans dug deep and did even better - $3,403.70! NorWesCon's Livejournal

And [ profile] amycat1959, bless her, donated *all* proceeds from the sales of all the Pratchett books that she sold this last weekend.

Isn't fandom great? :}

It may not seem like much to some, but for me it's a passing of a part of my life.

Eulogy for the DM
The Empty Chair

There is an empty chair,
at the table this day.
A hallowed place where,
a friend once played.
The roll of his dice,
my ears long to hear.
Or perhaps it would suffice,
if he should suddenly appear.
With character sheet in hand,
and a bag of Cheeze-doodles to share.
All his friends would stand,
as he sat in the empty chair.
I hear his voice a-callin',
and it ties my heart in a knot.
For he cries, "Though a comrade has fallen,
You must play for those who cannot."
We conquered worlds on the run,
he and I in the name of fun.
And as others may come and go,
I make both both friend and foe.
But what I long for most,
is our past now long a ghost.

Cat Ailments

Having conquered cat flu, triumphed over tapeworm and braved behavioural quirks, it is time to focus attention on some oft-observed, but little-documented, afflictions of cats.


The affected cat places one side of its head on the ground as though cheek-marking the concrete, carpet etc. After several such manoeuvres, the legs on that side of the cat suddenly collapse, leaving the cat waggling its feet in the air.

This involves placing the palm of one hand on the exposed belly and rubbing gently. There are side-effects though - some feline sufferers attack the rubbing hand while others recover spontaneously, often after prolonged treatment. This condition is probably incurable and any cat which requires prolonged treatment after an attack will most likely suffer repeated attacks of collapsible legs throughout its lifetime.


The affected cat repeatedly headbutts any available part of a readily available human and turns its head slightly so that the lips and cheek are rubbed against legs, arms, clothing etc. This condition gets its name from a contraction of the phrase "soggy nudging". Snudging may well be a form of excessive scent-marking. A bad attack can result in soggy clothing.

Give the sufferer lavish affection. Most attacks subside between 10 minutes to 1 hour after onset of symptoms. You may need to dry off snudged clothing or skin. Attacks recur frequently, usually when the most readily available human is engrossed in a TV program, book or telephone call.


The cat spreads to take up all available free bed space at night. It then expands a bit more until any human occupants occupy the smallest possible area of bed. It may do this on top or underneath the covers or on the pillow. It is highly contagious - any other cats on the bed will also develop symptoms of bed-hogging.

The most obvious solution is to evict the cat from the bed. If this is morally unfeasible, train yourself not to give way as the cat expands. Buying a bigger bed is probably pointless as most affected cats can easily expand to fill standard, queen-sized and king-sized beds. Otherwise, simply train yourself to sleep while hanging precariously off the side of the bed. Attacks of bed-hogging have been known to last up to 23 hours (in one case a 3-day attack was noted by a cat-owner who was confined to bed with flu).


The cat appears unable to settle comfortably on laps, instead treading, kneading, rearranging itself, fidgeting, vocalising, getting up and turning around, falling off lap and getting back on again, attacking magazines, needlework, computer keyboard, telephone etc.

Immediate treatment is essential. Drop whatever you are doing (literally if need be) and give 100% attention to the sufferer; otherwise symptoms may escalate and become quite distressing to the lap-owner. Only prolonged attention will cure an attack of Irritable Lap Syndrome. Like Collapsible Legs this syndrome is incurable, although attacks may be effectively treated as and when they occur.


Having taken over a human lap, the cat proceeds to 'spread' in all planes. This may be accompanied by secondary symptoms such as high volume purring, dribbling, kneading and snoring. The condition is highly contagious and several 'fungoid' cats may infest a lap simultaneously.

Topical treatment with proprietary anti-fungals is ineffective. Prompt treatment (as per Irritable Lap Syndrome) is required to alleviate the worst symptoms although in a number of cats, such treatment actually aggravates the condition. This disorder manifests itself periodically through the affected cat's life and there is no long-term cure


Random dashes through to helter-skelter running through house in pursuit of unseen prey. Greeblingz are believed to be non-visible entities and some authorities have linked them to UFO sightings or feel that they may be diminutive other-dimensional beings. Cats suffering from greeblingz typically have wild-eyed expressions. There is a minor danger of greeblingz attaching themselves to humans; if a cat tackles such greeblingz, injury to humans may result. A very few cats are naturally immune.

None known. Anti-epileptics are ineffective as the condition appears unrelated to other forms of seizure. Avoid getting in the way of a cat engaged in greebling hunting. Attacks usually subside spontaneously, perhaps as greeblingz return to their own dimension. These irritating creatures are not visible to human eyes, but no doubt the superior sight and hearing of cats enables them to see them.

A friend of mine posted this to an email list we're both on and I've copied his post here.

This is a 'go and watch' thing.

*HEMA is a Dutch department store. The first store opened on November 4,
1926, in Amsterdam . Now there are 150 stores all over the Netherlands.
HEMA also has stores in Belgium, Luxembourg, and Germany .
Take a look at **HEMA's product page . **.
You can't order anything and it's in Dutch, but just _wait a couple of
seconds and watch what happens.

This company has a sense of humor and a great computer programmer!***

That is all. :}

An episode of the British car show "Top Gear" evidently featured a race between a Bugatti Veyron and a Eurofighter Typhoon. I can't embed the link well so you will need to go to the site to see it. And it's worth it. There's just something - odd - about a drag race between a top end sports car and a military strike-fighter.
