Once Again Yet Another Still More Too Much Time


Stock Features

Tall people have built in ladders.



Having a urinal at home would be cool.
Having 2 side by side would just be creepy.


People Who Fly

…should have fragile stickers … not their luggage.


A Cylinderella Story

Do chambermaids clean guns?



If Antarctica became a country I bet Australians wouldn’t mention that “down under” stuff any more.



What are all these people doing “rumor milling around“?



Living vicarelessly through others sounds almost dangerous!



Standing out in a crowd of one seems easier than blending in to a crowd of one.
… or does that even make sense?


I Don’t Know

If you don’t have an opinion are you “nopinionated“?


Vicious Crop Circles

I guess being the cream of the crop is really good … unless we’re talking about corn.
… I don’t like that creamed corn stuff.


Re: Fractions

When it comes to needing glasses, it’s more 50/50 than 20/20.
… but they both mean 100% for some reason.


It Dependages

Some people’s arms and legs are pretty extreme … or possibly pretty extremities …  if they have 2 or 3 good looking ones.



When a political party wins by a wide margin it’s a “landslide“. Why isn’t a very narrow margin victory called a “falling rock“?


The Perfect Solution

If you have an ice cream headache you should take ice cream aspirin.


The Ends Are Fraying

I abhor, detest, despise, and loath people who describe everything in absolute extremes.



I don’t care if I shop in different clothing stores. I’m an indifferent clothing shopper maybe.


Ruining On My Parade

A lot of people are on the roads to ruins … Machu Picchu and Ankor Wat seem quite popular.


note: here are the other ones. You can probably figure out what order they go in.

Yet Another “Still More Too Much Time”

Another Still More Too Much Time

Still More Too Much Time

Still Too Much Time

Too Much Time


double note: I probably could have written more in this series, but Twitter is a good toilet for depositing and flushing these things usually recently up until now at the moment.


notes to myself #120

What you do and who you are are not really related … but I think we are.

My Ariel Sharona

the rock roots of the tree of knowledge

I never read it in a book
I never saw it on a show
But I heard it in the alley
On the weird radio

from “If You Wanna Get To Heaven” by Ozark Mountain Daredevils


I can’t remember too much stuff I studied in High School: it’s all fragments and things disappearing around corners now.

However, I probably remember every song lyric I heard between 13 and 18 years old.

If there had been cool songs explaining Biology, Chemistry, Physics, and Algebra; I bet I would have …

– cured my lack of facial hair
– distilled a potion that made me irresistible to the opposite sex
– invented a way to win at PacMan
– built a Death Star in the shape of AC/DC‘s Angus Young‘s guitar.

Sadly for me the education through song portion of my fountain of knowledge dried up soon after “The Wheels on the Bus go Round and Round”.



note: probably the most educational song I know is Monty Python‘s Universe Song.

double note: I might have even invented “flubber” if I had had enough money to buy records!

triple note: How cool was Fred MacMurray? Pretty cool! I kid you not!

quadruple note: “I studied so hard for the test that I lost my voice.”

quintuple note: sometimes the wheels on the bus don’t go round and round.

sextuple note: In the fantasy realm of educational songs …

The Rolling Stones: physics
The Beatles: entomology
Led Zeppelin: alchemy and aeronautics
The Animals: zoology
The Cars: automotive
ZZ Top: hair dressing school
David Bowie: biology
The Clash: art of war or fashion
The Police: criminology
Dr. Hook: medicine or possibly fishing
Men At Work: business
UB40: unemployment
The Doors: doors
AC/DC: the study of electricity
Crowded House: demographics
The Romantics: dead English poets you had to study in school
U2: spyware and spies and stuff

septuple note: I was going to include “Oasis: proctology” … but they weren’t around in my musical absorption period.

octuple note: Cheap Trick is more my life style.
