flavored with age

All I have to do is vom

I had another of my infrequent extremely vivid, detailed, cinematic dreams last night. This one was distinguished, however, by the fact that I was in it. Normally, my sleeping mind accurately assesses me to be too dull to put in an interesting dream, and so I just watch it unfold like a movie I'm not in. But this time I was front and center. It was a real heartbreaker, a doomed love story involving me and someone I have never actually met and almost certainly never will, and when I woke up this morning, I was in some kind of emotional funk.

Like I said: I gotta get my head on straight.

In non-how-pathetic-I-am news...

You know what's fun, if you're a dufus with lots of time on your hands? Selectively editing AP news story headlines (you know, the top stories headlines on Yahoo!'s front page) by just adding or subtracting a word, in order to make them funny. It's sort of like photoshopular, only without the need for expensive software or talent. And also less funny.

So, from:

•  Kerry says he will end overseas tax breaks
•  2 Palestinians killed attacking from sea
•  White House asks 9/11 panel to meet Rice
•  HIV infection less likely in circumcised men
•  Bunless burgers old news to Calif. chain

You get:

•  Kerry says he will spend overseas tax breaks
•  2 Palestinians killed attacking sea monster
•  White House asks 9/11 panel to eat rice
•  HIV infection less funny in circumcised men
•  Bunless burgers old at Calif. chain

Try it, if you're really bored.
