EDIT: I do not automatically friend back anyone just because they friended me – especially if I have no idea who they are and how they found me. If you're planning on hanging around in here, you might as well introduce yourself. If you add me and never say a word, I might not even notice you.

|So, This Exists
A collection of comics
following the movie. Pretty “meh,” as they don’t live up to the quality of the movie, recycle some of the jokes and dialog from the movie, and are otherwise pretty predictable. The story takes place between the crash landing at the convention (after which the government seized all of the alien tech and explained it away as a promotional stunt) and the airing of the pilot for the launch of the new Galaxy Quest
TV series. Besides the drama happening between the characters (which actually seemed to have been resolved by the end of the movie; but here, the characters have reverted to the way they were before meeting the Thermians), there was also a short plot about another alien ship attacking the Earth, and the government grabbing the Galaxy Quest actors to take the ship up to meet them (the government has been trying to study it at Area 51, but it will only work for the original crew). I had hoped for more; but then, if it had been better, I’d have heard of it and obtained it sooner.

| Twitter User Jailed For Using “Allah” in His HandleA Turkish Twitter user was sentenced to 15 months in prison on Thursday — for using a handle that was deemed religiously offensive. The user, Allah (c.c.), or @CenabiAllah, was charged with “humiliating the religious values accepted by a part of the people,” according to Turkish news website Hurriyet Daily News.
Do they have LiveJournal in Turkey?

Monday night, Q went to see Sean Lennon in DC. I bought her the ticket for her birthday, but didn’t go with her (because it was too short notice to get someone to stay with Richard; and because I wasn’t that really interested, truth be known). She got right up front at the stage for the concert (like you do), and Sean was standing right behind her during the opening act. She considered taking a selfie with him behind her, but didn’t want to look like a complete dork…( PicturesCollapse )
She had brought along her art pad (to have something to do on the Metro ride to the show) and drew a quick sketch of Sean Lennon after the show. He liked it, signed it, and posed for a picture with her.

|No, Not Gonna Build an Ark
Lots of rain yesterday, causing some flooding in low-lying areas. Took me a while to get home yesterday due to dense traffic on the main arteries, and road closures due to high water on the secondary roads I tried to take to get around the backups on the main roads. I didn’t worry, though, because by the side of the road I saw a couple of guys on a mission from God.

|Springtime for DC
Last Sunday, my father-in-law came down for a brief (two day) visit. On Monday, while I was at work, he went into Washington, DC, with my wife and son to see the cherry blossoms, monuments, museums, and so forth. (It was a good day for it; he would have gone back for more on Tuesday but it was raining.) Here are some of the pictures he took.( PicturesCollapse )

A call girl from Sardinia named Gedophamee was attending a great, but as yet unnamed, athletic festival in Greece over two thousand years ago. In those days, the athletes performed naked; and to prevent unwanted arousal while competing, the men imbibed freely on drink containing saltpeter throughout the variety of events. At the opening ceremonial parade, Gedophamee observed the first wave of naked magnificent males marching toward her, and she exclaimed: “Oh! Limp pricks!”
Over the millennia which followed, that comment morphed into the name “Olympics”.
