Aeromouse!

Comments
“‘A person may choose what he cannot see,’ he said, as if explaining something very obvious to a very foolish individual. ‘A person may mention a bird’s name even if the creature is not present and correct: crow, quail, hummingbird, bulbul, mynah, parrot, kite. A person may even select a flying creature of his own invention, for example winged horse, flying turtle, airborne whale, space serpent, aeromouse. To give a thing a name, a label, a handle; to rescue it from anonymity, to pluck it out of the Place of Namelessness, in short to identify it — well, that’s a way of bringing the said thing into being.’”
—Salman Rushdie
(from Haroun and the Sea of Stories)

Tonight, in addition to work and yummy Thai food, DDR Max (very fun!), a hot bath at last (divine!), and some frightening links:

    Some would-be biblical phrases God left on the editing room floor:

    "And the Lord said, let there be prayer panties."

    " And manna and thongs rained down on the Israelites, and there was much rejoicing."

    "I am the alpha and the omega. It was *I* who put 'Jesus' in G-string!"

    We world-premiered a staged reading of the Haroun script at St. Olaf my senior year. It was lovely.

    Bleach! Bleaching agents! Does this frighten nobody?

    Maraschino cherries aren't that scary if you just think of them as sweet cherry pickles.

    Never click the link without getting a warning. Never click the link without getting a warning. Never click the link without getting a warning. Guess who I'm going to try to get to screen all these links for me from now on. :D

    "To give a thing a name, a label, a handle; to rescue it from anonymity, to pluck it out of the Place of Namelessness..."

    It's a beautiful quote. Apparently it also describes what someone did when they came up with "prayer panties"... *shudder*

    I will think twice before eating another maraschino. :)

  • And via Zannah, but too scary to link to from the entry itself, here's a frightening article (with picture) of the man who set the world record for piercings with 702 surgical needles.
