It's Friday

I spent all of yesterday writing a short summary to apply to give a talk at a conference in December - it's in San Francisco so if I get accepted we can have a jiggsblog reunion. As is very common in research, I haven't really completed any of what I was summarizing, so it kinda feels like I'm trying to con them into accepting me. "Yes, we're going to have some great new data on atmospheric chemistry, and answer some questions people have had for oh about ten years, and we just might cure cancer too."

I posted another movie review on the spinoff site: Cry-Baby starring Johnny Depp, Traci Lords, Ricki Lake and Iggy Pop. I like to imagine that they all became lifelong friends during filming and now just hang out. Enjoy.

I also finished an art project I started earlier this week. I imagined the US flag with monkeys instead of stars. It doesn't show up to well in thumbnail mode, so here's a different version with a single, big old honking monkey in the canton - it's the Liberian flag with a monkey. Both flags are on a cafepress store called, unimaginatively, monkeyflag.

would you bang Avril Lavigne?

i actually like the Monkey Flag.

ps- i trimmed my pubes last night!

Avril is a little too young and angst ridden for me. Why, did she say something? Do you think she digs me? No, I'm spoken for.

I'm glad this blog has become a place to discuss body hair. I wouldn't shave my pubes, but occasionally I'll mousse them.

Mousse never works for me. I need Ultra Hold gel.

I think I have some jew in me, or something.

My favorite thing about the guy who played Ed in Northern Exposure is that his father is Bill Drago.

Also known as the guy who played Frank Nitti in The Untouchables, or the guy that got thrown off the roof by Kevin Costner in The Untouchables.

They look exactly alike!

I need my own flag. Maybe I can get Ubie to sew one for me.
