Random Thoughts

---Ah, May. The month where I can’t use “may” in a sentence without Word trying to autocorrect it to the date.
---It also does this other times when I’m trying to write “novel” and “decent”. There are other words besides months!
---Sesquipedalian means given to the overuse of long words. Such as sesquipedalian.
---Why are all the shows I like canceled but frigging Law & Order: SVU is returned for a fourteenth season? How bad has that show gotten? Original CSI is more entertaining. And realistic.
---Seriously. NBC should change their slogan to “Where originality goes to die. And is then investigated by Ice-T.”
---They attached a laser beam to a shark’s head! That’s it, animal uprising, world over, everyone go home because you can’t stay here.
---There’s actually a thread on Reddit that says “What Secret Could Ruin Your Life if It Came Out?” All I could think was…I don’t have a secret like that. Just the regular, OMG-I-embarrassed-myself-again kind.
---A twenty-three year old was locked up in a cell for four days with no food and water because the police forgot to release him. He’s now suing the DEA for twenty million and while I’m usually not a fan of lawsuits, yeah, I think it’s justified.
---Man, I had a great random thought to go here but somewhere between hitting enter and the three dashes I use to start these, I forgot what it was.
---I’m sorry, but I have to say it: Johnny Depp and Tim Burton have got to stop making movies together.
---“Futility, or the Wreck of the Titan” is a book by Morgan Robertson about a luxury liner called Titan that sunk after hitting an iceberg four hundred miles off the coast of Newfoundland. It had three thousand on board, too few lifeboats and was eight hundred feet long. Sound like a novelization of the Titanic? Well, this book was written in 1898.
---You know how some other languages have a casual you and a formal you? So does English. The casual is you and the formal is thou.
---Is the best way to demolish a house by driving a tank through it? Possibly, possibly not. But it is definitely the most awesome way.
---Octopus arms can react and process information on their own. Even after being detached from the main body of the octopus. Have fun swimming!


  1. For some reason, I only have the autocorrect problem in November. I guess I don't use may in too many sentences.

    I had heard about "Futility, or the Wreck of the Titan" some years back. Amazing how fiction can predict things.

    Instead of using the three dashes, you could use the bullet list. It's at the top on the right hand side, 4 things in. So you don't forget your next random thought.

  2. "Where originality goes to die?" You have a wicked wit, JE!

  3. I can't remember the last time I watched an episode of SVU. It's been a very long while.

    At least they finally cancelled CSI Miami. No more new episodes of the mumbling idiot who keeps being rude and putting those damned sunglasses on in the middle of a conversation.

    I've heard of the novel Futility before... one of these days I'll have to see if I can get my hands on it.
