Out of the Blue

We're gearing up to head off for a family function as we celebrate my aunt's birthday today. It's one of those "big" ones, so it will be a big party, so, to paraphrase Carl Spackler, we got that going for us… which is nice.

Birthday Links! Thanks Mike Martinez and Ant.

It's 12 years later and my right ear is still ringing...
Tinnitus is fun, no?

I dont realy know if its actually tinitus, but for as long as I can remember I have had this low volume shrill sound/noise in my ears, I think I have a memory from my childhood at around the age of 4, where I was wondering over why so many people liked that shrill beep they called silence. This is because any form of ambient noise drowns it out.

Whiner. You get right up next to those speakers and stand there for 3 hours and get back to me.

Went to a rather small bar/club/place by that name in Boston tonoight, met several friends of one coworker who's returning to Toronto. Met a couple women, without much success (got names), but am now driven to try again next week there or elsewhere.

Oh, I've got a headache and I'm a bit deaf at the moment.

Would I do it again? Heck yes, but with fewer drinks and lesser sound volume...

So I jump ship in Hong Kong and make my way over to Tibet, and I get on as a looper at a course over in the Himalayas. A looper, you know, a caddy, a looper, a jock. So, I tell them I'm a pro jock, and who do you think they give me? The Dalai Lama, himself. Twelfth son of the Lama. The flowing robes, the grace, bald... striking.

So, I'm on the first tee with him. I give him the driver. He hauls off and whacks one - big hitter, the Lama - long, into a ten-thousand foot crevasse, right at the base of this glacier. Do you know what the Lama says? Gunga galunga... gunga, gunga-galunga.

So we finish the eighteenth and he's gonna stiff me. And I say, "Hey, Lama, hey, how about a little something, you know, for the effort, you know." And he says, "Oh, uh, there won't be any money, but when you die, on your deathbed, you will receive total consciousness." So I got that goin' for me, which is nice.

Yeah, I see what you mean. He kind of did get a little red there. I don't know, who knows.

I mean, with the couple-minute leadin Jimmy was doing I was expecting the initial "F--- you." But that whole bit afterwards, I have to say that was good acting. I'm sure parts of the audience felt uncomfortable.


Tiger face --- grrr
Sour face --- mmmm

Was that Jimmy Kimmel clip a spoof, or did Damon actually get that angry? Anyone know?

It's a reoccuring joke on Kimmel's show. The other late night shows like Letterman and Conan sometimes run over and some scheduled guests can't be brought on because of time. I think it was more of Kimmel spoofing that because if you're a host of a prime time show you wouldn't exactly schedule a big-name star like Damon to appear at the end. I think Damon was just acting mad.

But damn, The Bourne Ultimatum can't get here fast enough.

Hi all... been away from the 'net for a while as I have been staying at the better half's new flat which doesn't even have a friendly neighbour's unsecured wireless network. It's been driving me crazy. Still... having checked in I don't seem to have missed much
