Sometimes I wonder if I've been unknowingly recruited by some race of superior beings, like the Talosians, who are totally mental and rarely move but have a rich inner life nevertheless and they crave real-world stimulation. They manipulate me into traveling to scenic places getting involved in novel situations and can experience what's happening by tapping into my own senses. Maybe they're Angels? Directing me occasionally to their old house?
Ohhh, still feeling awful from this cold. I thought it was receding, instead my symptoms are mutating. Still too much congestion, although the nose isn't as runny as it was several days ago. Today I woke up with a headache and some coughing - a lethal combination since each cough briefly intensifies the head pain. <1> Went home at lunch and made chicken noodle soup, then lay down for a bit. Why pretend to work? Can't concentrate with a head like this... took an Esgic, and am feeling better. Other symptom - chills. Hey, this isn't the flu, is it? I got a shot to avoid that misery this year!
Happened to see a bit of the "Regis and Kathy Lee" program and nausea was my only reaction. How can anybody stand their schtick? He's this smarmy, arrogant New Yorker-dickhead who believes what he says is meaningful, while she's this archaic bimbo decoration who talks but says nothing. Pardon me while I gag. (Apologies to G who maintains a "school-spirit" loyalty WRT Kathie Lee since he claims somebody in his yearbook with a different name is she. He's upset when I have difficulty distinguishing between Kathie Lee Gifford and Cathy Lee Crosby. <2>)
Here's a dumb question: Is Jessie Ventura (and Ross Perot)'s Reform party related to the Reform Party of Canada? Of course not, I guess I'm being ridiculous... Just heard over the radio from the Minnesota gubernatorial inauguration - Arnold Schwarznegger was there, hailing Jessie's magnetic personality.
As an indicator of how things are finally loosening up in another direction, there's talk now of a pair of exhibition games between the Baltimore Orioles and the Havana team, (the Sugar Kings?) the first game to be held there; the next, here.

Each cough a burst of pain which feels like
an enormous hand squeezing my skull - no, not really;
maybe if the hand was inside my skull, but they
say there's no nerves in the brain to feel such a
violation. Such a weird topic reminds me of the one
funny line in an awful movie L and I got at the video
store. This was the experience where I learned that
the unknown find which sounds good from the box - well,
it might be some undiscovered treasure, but
odds are this is one of a great many tapes which
should be degaussed as a public service, a defense
against mediocrity. The film was "Surfin' II" and the
scene is a coach-type with some hoodlums and he
says "If I need any more shit out of
you I'll squeeze your head!"
...about whom I have at
least a second-hand Hollywood anecdote, told to me by an
insider who now only does the
occasional commercial to keep his Screen Actors Guild
(SAG) membership valid. Seems he was in prep
for some filming with Cathy Lee, and on the set
met a fetching model who introduced herself as
"Cathy Lee's legs" - she'd be on camera in any

"What's that? and you have RealAudio click
