News and Recaps

So Sunday a group of us went to The Getty and had a lovely time.
We had lunch, tried a new wine, saw some illuminated manuscripts about torture, and R and I picked out our V-day furniture.
Now we just need to figure out how to get it out of the museum, and to his place-
Although....art is love-love is art- that sort of thing.
Would be a lot easier to just leave it there and 'borrow' it.

After The Getty S and I went shopping, grabbed dinner, and settled in for the latest episode of Carnivale. J felt like it was a filler episode-I think J must have missed some things, because I thought it progressed the story in exactly the same tempo it has all season.

Monday had plans with A, but like so many, he is not feeling well-
We did talk about the upcoming trip to London, Dublin, Paris and he seems keen to go.
Caught B (AC) online last night and chatted for a bit while I caught up on email and oggled the ear candy St sent me. (Enablers can be dangerous things)

Social calendar has finally got some free time on it this week-now I am deciding if I want to use tonight and tomorrow to finally go out with RC and E, or if I just want to relax till Thursday-
Thought I could ask M and C to meet me at The Dresdan and invite RC to tag along there for open mic-
just not sure.

Feeling good physically-mood is wonderfully positive.
Having lots of fun-may be meeting too many new distractions at once.

How about some news?

The Beak Shall Inherit the Earth

Doves of peace attacked Pope John Paul II in St. Peter's Square yesterday, in a scene that could have been snipped from Hitchcock's The Birds, if The Birds had been filmed in Rome and had a totally different shooting script. One of the doves swooped in for the kill twice and had to be wrestled to the ground by an aide (a cardinal, maybe?). On a positive note, it's the first time we've seen the sickly 84-year-old's actual face in many years.

Hot Monkey Love

Seems the banana doesn't fall far from the tree. A new study found that male monkeys will give up their juice rewards in order to ogle pictures of female monkeys' asses, says Live Science.com. In the experiment, juice served as money and the monkeys were only too eager to lose the juice to see the caboose. The rhesus macaque monkeys also gave it up to salivate over photos of high-ranking primates. Like us shlubs going to Scores.

And finally, what would MJ look like if he had stayed black?
