As a person who probably enjoys light hearted mischief a little too much, it must have its place on this website, right next to all of the serious writings, thoughts, and imaginings. If you worry too much about the life of the mind and the seriousness of the arts and the sciences, then life, love, and laughter will pass you by - for good reason. Art and thought are important, but they are not that important. Fun, on the other hand, is vital.
My idea of fun may be quirky to you, or it may even be boring (though that would just plain surprise me). Whatever the case may be, beneath this spiel you'll find a progression of things that I find incredibly fun and interesting, mildly amusing, or just plain funny. I don't apologise for any of it, but at the same time - I hope you find something here that is a little amusing to you. Not that I need the validation - much, anyway. ;)

If you’ve got a little bit of time to kill over the holidays, check out this neat little game, Sprocket Rocket. These little puzzle games get me addicted almost as soon as I begin to play them – I just have to solve them – I MUST! Anywho, it’s pretty challenging and a nice little distraction from everything else, if only for a time. You can find it by clicking here. Merry Christmas!

So, it looks like Google are going into the online dating game as well, and some would say that it was only a matter of time before they plugged in to this lucrative market. The singles scene has blossomed with the mainstreaming of the Internet, and what was once seen as somewhat crazy (Internet dating was frowned upon by many) is now viewed by many as the most legitimate way to meet a life partner. Usually, those who hold the new view met their partner online. Most others think that the real world may still be legitimate.
Anyway, here’s the link. The whole thing appears a little disingenuous to me, but the Googlemind has made it their priority to provide us with the answers to many of lifes problems, so why not provide us with life partners? Maybe Google really does have the answer for everything? Anyhow, give Google Romance a try today.

I’m not one for online gaming (much ), but I absolutely love this little game. It’s a little bit darker than most games, and has a somewhat gothic energy running through it, so it might appeal to the utterly disaffected portion of my soul. Either that, or I’ll waste my time on virtually anything. Whatever the case may be, you can play it here: The Company Of Myself

I went and put a few of my poems through the word clouding machine at Wordle, and thought that I’d publish a few of the better ones here. Unless you’re interested, there’s probably nothing to see here. So move along.Wordle Cloud – How To Feel Beautiful

This is just a little bit of fun, but I think I’ve come up with a perfectly legitimate word to describe the babbling, slurring, speech of drunks. I think it deserves its own specific word, because – let’s face it – slurred speech can come about as a result of a lot of things, but dipsolalia nails the drunk thing perfectly. I think I’ll add narcolalia to the list, and amphetolalia while I’m at it. As far as I can tell, they aren’t words, and if Google says it doesn’t exist, then it doesn’t exist. That’s not the worlds best way of accumulating evidence, but I have other things to do besides introduce new words into the language. Sheesh.No Dipsolalia For You
byTuesday, July 20, 2010The following letter was forwarded by a teacher who works at a small high school. The letter was sent to the principal’s office after the school had sponsored a luncheon for the elderly. This story is a credit to the heart that exists in the depths of humankind. Read it, soak it in, and bask in the warm fuzzies that it leaves you reeling with…
