Monday Afternoon This 'N That

Here it is, mid-afternoon. I'm on my third pot of coffee and my brain is still pretty foggy. I popped some allergy pill this morning to help with my ongoing pollen problems, so perhaps it is affecting me more than I realized.

So, for lack of anything better, I'll give you another helping of randomness:

- I note that The Hitchhiker's Guide To The Galaxy has a current approval rating of 62% on the Critics' Tomatometer over at Rotten Tomatoes. This doesn't really mean much to me a) since a good many of them (both pro and con) obviously have never read the books and b) with each passing day I give less of a damn what professional movie reviewers think. I also did an informal poll of my office mates, who gave the movie some lukewarm praise but also a good deal of shoulder shrugging. I'd be interested in hearing what the Blogsphere has to say, so if you've got a comment or a link, I'd appreciate it if you would shoot it over to me.

- The Irish Elk has a nice post up about Mary Gardening. I see a number of my own flowers listed: columbine, lilly-of-the-valley, hollyhock, bleeding heart, peony, etc., as well as a number of my favorites that I hope to plant in the future, foxglove and lupine being prime amongst them. But morning glory? It's a freakin' weed that I have to fight every summer to keep from strangling my raspberries. The language that I typically employ during such skirmishes is not, I'm sure, of a quality appropriate for the Virgin's ears.

- Can I say it now? Please? Please? Okay - Kathy is a dork. MWAHAHAHA!!! (For those of you about to hit the comment button with something about pots and kettles regarding my own THHGTTG ranting in this post, hey - blame it on the drugs.)

- In the matter of Llama-ettes, unless I unexpectedly slip one past the goalie, we are strickly three and out. But I'd be interested to see what Steve-O has to say about this post on how to deal with Number Four. Yips! to Jordana.

- No word yet on what's wrong with my jeep's clutch, but thank Heaven it went duff today, instead of next Monday when I drive down to South Carolina.

- Enoch Soames, Esq., has up a terrific anti-pop culture quiz that leaves me feeling thoroughly worked over. Number 24 is indeed a gimme, but most of the rest are pretty tough.
