There are 3 fox cubs play fighting in our car park. I am watching them on CCTV :)

Ricardo Montabaln is dead, alas.

So Ricardo Montalban died last year. I wasn't a huge fan or anything but I suddenly realised that there are people in their late 20's who have never seen Fantasy Island and have no idea why someone might say "Ze plane! Ze plane!".

I feel old.

I'll always remember an interview I saw with Montalban, in which he described the 5 stages of an actor's career:

1. Who is Ricardo Montalban?

2. Get me Ricardo Montalban!

3. Get me someone like Ricardo Montalban!

4. Get me a young Ricardo Montalban!

5. Who is Ricardo Montalban?

So it goes.

The plumbing doesn't help with the cucumbers anymore.

Man talks in sleep. Wife records what man says. Then puts it on a blog.

It is almost impossible to pick one or even a few representative lines, as the whole thing is just awesome.

Fuck the fucking Olympics

TV shows I am currently watching that I will have to wait until fucking March/April to see again:
V
Flash Forward
Stargate Universe

And that's just so far.

I don't care about the fucking Olympics. Let the bastards run around in the cold if they want just don't fuck with my science fiction.

OK Data

I am fascinated by the OK Cupid blog, where they use data from the site to analyze how people date online, as well as other stuff.
