Anomalism 12-16.7 Happy Birthday a couple days ago.    2007-12-16 04:49:03 ET
While my lady Anomalous was at work on the 14th, I went out and got a small ice cream cake from DQ (6") and 45 birthday candles. It was frozen so hard that I had to put the little candles through a pencil sharpener so I could stick em in it. So I got that done and hid it in the freeze in garage. Later she comes home and Severity and I wish her happy birthday. She goes upstairs to get out of her work clothes and into her house clothes and I sneak it into the kitchen. My delema at this point is how to light 45 candles on an ice cream cake. So I went back out in the garage and got a suitable device and was walking through the door with when she walks down the steps and sees me with a propane torch and a lighter and gives me a suspicious look and asks, "what are you doing?". "Lighting candles, wanna watch?". I had wanted to have it lit when she came down but then the process is half the fun right? I did get them all lit without melting the cake or setting the house on fire. And as I expected the tiny cake with 45 candles gave the appearence of being all a blaze (gave off a lot of light too). She did get all the candles out with one breath and then wanted me to sing happy birthday the auditory damage potential I thought was greater than the threat of setting the house on fire. It was a good time.

 Anomalism 8-21.7 Filmses    2007-08-21 14:07:06 ET
I just saw the Hitcher teh ether day and I can't think of another film where I wanted more for the good guy to be killed in horrible ways apart from Hobgoblins where I wanted everyone in the film to be killed imediatly. What kind of a writer writes a character like that? If you focus grouped every situation for the absolute best way to make it worse for the character you could not do more. I had no simpathy for the guy at all at any point in the film because he was a moron. So I have to wonder did the writer intend for me to hate his main character? Did he or she think these reactions (by the character) normal? or apropriate? Did the director plan for me to think this way or was I supposed to have a different take? I wonder.
I also watched the new Casino Royal bond flic and I have to say it was a lot closer to a good film than anything else from recent decades with the name Bond attached to it. I did still find the plot a bit predictable. I do like that the big chase sequence was a foot chase, that was refreshing to see. What do you think?

 Anomalism7-4.7 Its the Fourth again    2007-07-04 17:25:53 ET
And I am still very proud and very thankful to be an American. My first SK entry was on the fourth in 03 so today I have been here 4 years (Love this place). Given the ancestry that I have I found myself pondering how long my people have been walking this land.

Mrs Anomalous (who has a broken hand) just came in and informed me that I need to deal with my leftover potsticker dip because in her current condition she is very mysterious and can spill things with her mind. She goes to the orthopedic surgeon tomorrow to find out if she needs pins to stabilize the bone or if just the cast will do. I myself have never (that I know of) broken a bone so I can scarce imagine what she is going through. Of course growing up I had many friends and aquaintances wearing various casts but never managed to earn one of my own. I've done plenty enough other damage to my self so I can't feel too left out.
