random thoughts from the weekend

Lovely, rainy weekend. Photographed with Nikon D300, 60mm micro lens.

While sitting with my family watching Star Wars: A New Hope this weekend, it dawned on me that except for the fact that one of them is an android, there is very little difference between C-3PO and Dr. Niles Crane. I find it hard to believe that their similarities are mere coincidence.

If I were to have a small dinner party where I would invite a few famous people over for a casual meal, I think I would invite Barack Obama, Tina Fey, Jon Stewart and Ricky Gervais. I don't know what I would serve for dinner, but I would definitely have some really good wine. Lots and lots of really good wine. And I would keep my camera very, very close to me.

I would love to write a novel: I have such great ideas for some really interesting characters. If I could just come up with, you know, a plot.

I love saying the words syzygy, analytical, antagonistic and sabbatical. I hate saying the words phlegm, bile, and toenail. While in real life I curse like a sailor, you will never hear me say the word fart (and actually, just typing that made me cringe). Also? In my mind, the word bosom should always be preceded by the word heaving, because it's just such a ridiculous word, it should never actually be used in serious conversation. Unless the speaker works at a Renaissance festival. Then I guess it's okay.


It occurs to me that perhaps I should find more meaningful activities to fill my weekends.
