Sort of an artsy, gift book for the coffee table.) I don't have time for this! And yet I want to hang out here and read all the posts! ARGH.

I'm going to bed now. :-P

It's good to see you here, Marf. We've missed you.



Cheers

Things that really makes my day is recognition. In this case my geek-ness. I was walking down a London street from Holborn to Covent Garden when a woman 45-50(?) to who walked by us turned to me and said "I like your T-shirt!" This was my "Shrödinger's cat is dead", which would be obscure to many.

That's great. Got a link to the T-shirt art, or is it just the words?

In the 1985 film Brazil, Terry Gilliam presents a dystopian society crippled by red tape and government bureaucracy. Robert De Niro plays Tuttle, an air conditioning repairman who goes rogue. Tired of being hampered by endless forms and paperwork, Tuttle works outside of the system by repairing broken AC units illegally. Describe as a terrorist by the government, his unlawful actions are appreciated by the citizens he helps.

Now, in a strange case of life imitating art, a man in Jackson, Mississippi is under police investigation for using city resources to repair pot holes.

I could have used Tuttle on my first night in London. The hotel was full with only one room left: the one with the broken AC. With 30 degrees Celsius we had to sleep naked on top of the sheets (there weren't any windows which could be opened. After the first night we got relocated, and now we have a great room.

I ordered it from thinkgeek.com
It just has the words.

Since Marf stopped back, I wanted to let her know that the print I bought from her looks great. I had it professionally framed and it really pops.

Even though the USPS tried desperately to destroy the print before I got it, (water damaged envelope, bent to fit in the mailbox despite the phrase "do not bend" being printed on it) Marf had taken precautions and I got the item undamaged.
