1. I had a dumb frustration dream last night: went to the grocery store, couldn’t find a cart–that sort of thing; nothing worth blogging about. But there was one memorable line in it. A bunch of guys were standing around in the cart area and one of them said, “Bowling. That’s my stimulus plan.” It sounded pretty plausible at the time: save the world economy through bowling. Crazier ideas have been proposed, so I say we try it.
2. Am I the only person who, when seeing news of the approaching green comet Lulin, thinks of the green meteor shower that began The Day of the Triffids? It’s fairly obvious that soon giant walking carnivorous plants will be feasting on our innards. Anyway, that’s one more thing to worry about, since there don’t seem to be enough problems to go around these days.
