Snorrrzzz...  
Got back a little late from the Cal/UofW game. Quite the blowout, with a 48-7 win for Cal (very hard season for the Huskies). The kids had a great time, and I must say, Javhid Best (video here) is an incredible running back. And only a sophomore! My favorite play of the game was a run where he stopped, the would-be tackling player stopped, and then Best ducked around him and kept going for another 6-8 yards. \o/

HSH and I tried to watch more of The Simpsons' Treehouse Of Horrors, which is fantastic even though we keep nodding off. I finally snoozed on the sofa until about 10pm, trying to wake up enough to do some writing. I'm more awake, but the muse is foggy. :( However, Haywire was on Cold Case...

Ever suddenly feel like your shoes are too tight, right now? I took the left one off an hour ago because of that, and it's hit me in the car a couple of times (tennis shoes, where the laces are cutting across the arch). What is THAT all about?

And randomly: chia pets still creep me out. Not in the abstract, but watching the process via TV commercial? Ewwwww. Something about spreading the seeds on the outside and watching them sprout is just icky. Makes me think of that Mrs. Piggle Wiggle book where she cures a girl's dirtiness by planting radish seeds on the girl's skin. A crop forms. Yick!

I get that shoe thing sometimes...or else you can *never* tie the laces just right- they're either too tight or too loose or too crooked or *something.*


Feets are weird.

I don't know what it is-- sudden swelling?

I can have those shoes on for hours, and the out of the blue, "Argh! My skin is being pinched! Must unlace now!" :D

I can't deal with Chia-Pets. To me there is nothing sillier. The Simpsons? My fav TOH is the one where Homer time-travels courtesy of the toaster. No matter how many times I see it, it cracks me up.

I definitely think they're silly, but there's also a "Yick" factor that surprises me. I think it's a personal squick or something.

We had just finished watching that one on the night I posted this. I'd never seen it before, but it cracked me up. I especially loved when it reached the point where you'd just watch the Simpsons' house Zzzzt-morph-Zzzzt-morph again and again and know what Homer was up to. ;)

Somehow, I was expecting the DVD to have ALL the Simpsons' Halloween episodes (there must be 20 of them), or at least the first 10. There are only 4-5 though, plus some extras. Imagine my surprise to discover that the drooling green aliens have names!

Kang and Kodos, which I had to explain to my daughter. You know the names, right?? And yeah, I bought the DVD anyway, even with the few Halloween eps on it. Another one that makes me giggle is the one with Groundskeeper Willie explaining the "Shinning".

Well, I know them now! I'm not sure they've identified themselves in their other appearances. In a few months, I'll forget again though, I'm sure.

That one is all the funnier if, like me, you found the original "Shining" laughable and not scary. I mean, it was already crack to begin with!

I also really like whatever one has Groundkeeper Willie on a rampage, where he becomes an evil scuttling grass cutter, and eventually turns into a giant red plaid spider that wheezes out bagpipe noises. That's the kind of lunacy I depend on The Simpsons for. \o/

Sometimes I can get into LJ from school LOL...

Kang and Kodos - The names come from Trek. Those were the two original Klingon Commanders

"The Shinning - not the Shining" - I am a King fan and had read the book, and was sorely disappointed in the film. Altho', of course, Jack busting thru the door "Here's Johnny", classic scene and a bit laughable.

Groundskeeper Willie does crack me up. So many characters there. "I'm Troy McClure. You may remember me from such films as...."
