Big Shocks of the Day

An insane killer who was on a field trip outing with other prison inmates has escaped.  Thank goodness this happened all the way up north, in Spokane, WA!  Self had no idea, absolutely no idea, that prison inmates were given organized field trips.  That is most assuredly a very humane thing to do, yes.

The killer’s name, in case anyone is interested, is Philip Arnold Paul, he is 47 years old, and he simply walked away from the rest of his group during an outing to the Spokane County Fair.

Self may present at sole remaining indie movie theater in Menlo Park, the Guild, to watch “The Baader Meinhof Complex” this afternoon.  It’s probably terribly bloody, and it’s 2 1/2 hours long.  But hubby has declined to go, as he is deep into the Notre Dame/Michigan State football game, which self understands Notre Dame must win or, hubby maintains, the Notre Dame coach (a very grandfatherly-looking man, self must say)  may get the boot.

Dearest Mum told self yesterday that she would be going to the Mall of Asia to scoop up all copies she could find of The Lost Language.  When Dearest Mum told self this, these were her thoughts:

  • Gee, I hope she doesn’t bump into Karina Bolasco.
  • Gee, I hope she doesn’t bump into Charles Tan.
  • Gee, I hope she leaves some copies of my books for Charles Tan.
  • Gee, I wonder why I always fall for this, when chances are I’ll call Dearest Mum tomorrow and ask her how the Book Fair went, and she’ll have no idea what I’m talking about.

P.S.  Self just found out from an ad on TV (during a break in the football game) that “Heroes” (w/ Zach Quinto/Sylar) would be airing a two-hour premier episode this Monday.  She is mighty confused by the time/Central time designation and has to ask hubby to explain it to her.  After he gives her a very long explanation, she finds that the show is supposed to air at 8 p.m. in California.  And then she sees many clips of other actors and actresses, none of whom she recognizes, and a very brief, two-second something of Zach Quinto’s face at the very end (in extreme close-up, blurred) of the ad.  And now self is again very confused because she can’t decide whether she likes Zach better with or without eyebrows.  And she certainly wouldn’t want anything to taint her wonderful memories of his performance as Young Spock.  Mebbe she should just skip the whole “Heroes” thing, then ?

Stay tuned, dear blog readers, stay tuned.
