Salt Precaution

Desirable social insect

A few hours ago I was informed that Ozzy Osbourne had once snorted a line of ants. And by ants I mean insects, not a clever acronym for the latest drug in the rock n roll world.

It got me to thinking--what if Ozzy, upon snorting the ants, had found himself in the most incredible, most transportive and euphoric high he had ever experienced? And what if he passed this knowledge on to others?

What if it became widely known that ants were the greatest drug?

Pest control would become a government priority. SWAT teams armed with insecticides would ram down doorways of purported "infested" houses.

But as anyone who knows anything about ants, the bastards are just impossible to permanently kill. They always come back eventually.

And therein would lay the doom of the idiotic War Against Drugs.


Having said that, I've plotting a great deal of work for myself, and I do not expect that I shall be getting much sleep.

Wish me luck, dear reader, as I dive headfirst into a pool of uncertain depth.

I think this'll do for a start

Well. I'd say I've gotten about three fifths of the way through my little project. And since I'm not gonna need it done until Saturday, I think I can safely break for sleep now.

Hm. I seem to have some coffee left . . . dubious brand name, did not taste especially great. But the can is freshly opened, so I was able to fill the filter up completely. Meaning what the coffee lacks in quality of flavour, it makes up for with SHEER FORCE.

I wonder if I'll wake up tomorrow? If I die before I wake, I'd like Dirt in the Ground by Tom Waits played at my funeral.

G'night folks!

Awake! I put in the blender a fistful of frozen blueberries, two bananas, and some rice milk. This is a recipe I learned recently from one of my cousins. Only this morning, I added my own special ingredient; some gemai tea. I find it lends a woodsy aftertaste.

Now, I think I shall get back to work . . . although I'm considering first either finishing watching Amélie (which I rented yesterday) or finish reading a Kelly Link short story I began reading yesterday . . .

Incidentally, last night I watched a movie called Kids. And I'm very happy that film exists.
