Question for the ages

I just got my hair cut in preparation for school.

My question is: Who cuts the haircut person’s hair?  Do they cut it themselves since they’re professionals?  Do they let someone else cut it?  And why do they always have odd styles?  Is it because they do do it themselves and they just aren’t that good, or is it because when new styles come out, they’re their own guinea pig?

An interesting read, for all you Earth-haters

While I certainly believe in reducing CO2 emissions and using less energy, if only to be more effecient and spend less money, I also strongly believe in scientific angles, which is why this was so interesting to read.

I’ve long maintained that global warming is a pattern, and as such, is something that will eventually give way to global cooling.  This year alone has been very cold, on the whole, as we were wearing jackets well into May.  We wore jackets just yesterday, too.

That doesn’t mean I don’t think something needs to be done about the environment, since for example China has the largest emerging middle class in the world and all of them are buying cars.  So that is already spiking and will continue to do so, and some kind of standard needs to be in place.  Technology needs to be researched.  But I also believe in the scientific aspect, which is of course interesting, because many political leaders try to shove that under the rug.

If global cooling is real, we’ll still need ways to conserve energy and be “green” since we’ll arguably be using more energy in an attempt to warm ourselves up as opposed to cooling ourselves down.

Cinematic revelation

So while eating dinner today, we were watching a movie on TCM called “Since You Went Away,” which is a 15-hour war movie shot entirely without color.

One of the dramatic scenes in the movie is when Bill gets shipped off to fight in the war and his fiancee is saying good-bye to him from the train platform.  “Be sure to take a picture of yourself and send it to me when you get there!” she says.  Bill throws her a watch as a parting gift as she previously gave him her graduation ring.

Wait a con-sarn minute!  I’ve seen this scene before!

Sure enough, the scene I was rememebring was a scene from “Airplane!”  I’d never understood the reference until that moment, but they parody that good-bye scene as the plane is preparing to take off.

It starts at 1:05.

It’s 11pm

…And I’ve been jamming to some Michael Jackson for well over an hour now.  Should I go to bed or keep jamming?

Tomorrow’s a ‘Celebration.’ Maybe

Been busy recently with work and haven’t had time to update anything.  Plus, all I want to do when I get home is precisely nothing.

However, tomorrow is the Bank Formerly Known As Commercial Federal’s “Celebrates America” concert in Omaha, which is free to the public.  This year’s headliner is Kool & the Gang, which is very exciting.  Also, .38 Special will be there.  Previous years have featured KC & the Sunshine Band, The Village People, The Pointer Sisters, The Supremes, and others.  It usually draws 50,000 or more people.

The sucky thing is that due to cruddy weather, the entire thing may be postponed. We’ll see.

The non-sucky thing is that regardless of weather, next week is my week off and I’m EXCITED.  Again, I plan to do precisely nothing.

I don’t have anything to write…

…So here’s a picture of a kitty.

I want some sushi

And I’m not going to be happy until I get some. 😛

I think the work friends and I will go get some someday soon.

Everything tastes better with chopsticks.
