    OMG! Geeks for the win! Will the Han soap ever come out in stores?

    Reading this book was difficult for me at first, believe it or not. It took me a while to come to grips with the fact that this is a parody/zombification of the original, so if Darcy is more forward and snarky than he should be, it's OK. I get a bit protective of my literary favorites.

    "Sense and Sensability and Sea Monsters" wasn't as enjoyable for me as "Pride and Prejudice and Zombies."

    And how about those spiders that are big enough to wrap around your head? Joy of joys! It's the next crappy spider horror flick in the making!

    When I saw the title for this post, I was expecting to see an announcement for this to be the next butter sculpture at the Texas State Fair. There's always some celebrity sculpted out of butter there.

    My little brother is autistic, so my mom has always had a huge library of books on autism. I've read part of Temple Grandin's book "Thinking in Pictures." The part where she's talking about designing the systems for cattle was really interesting. She actually went through the whole thing pretending she was a cow and then designed it so that they wouldn't be scared when going through.

    But my favorite book was "There's a Boy in Here." Too bad it's out of print now.

    Well, I clocked myself at 4:46 at the voting machine, but now I can't feel my spleen. Are you sure that information's accurate? ;-)

    One thing I've had to do is get a roommate. That cuts your rent costs in half. I have a friend who's in college. She tried to apply for food stamps and government aid, but they told her they can't do anything for full-time college students.

    Good luck to your friend. It's a tough time to try and go out on your own right now.

    This reminds me of a slip of paper we found in my grandmother's house when we were cleaning it out after her funeral. It goes something like this:

    "Hoover is my shepherd.
    I shall be in want.
    He leadeth me beside still factories.
    He destroys my faith in the Republican party.
    Yea, though I walk through the soup line, I am hungry...."

    And it goes on from there.
