We must help Cathy Schulman.
More info soon.
Digital (idiot) savant
More writing today, this time about my adventures buying, then totally breaking, a RAZR phone.
That genius grant remark yesterday was in reference to an idea I had that has, in a mere 24 hours, become a full-blown reality. See, I get bored if I don't have 50,000 things going on at once, so in my recapping vacation, I said to myself, "Why not do a comic strip about fishies?"
The idea, fully realized in stark black-and-white-on-Web, is over at the Space Monkeys! site and you can find the first comic strip, drawn by me, right here. Don't worry if you don't get it. Fish have a language and culture I am only now beginning to understand as I transform myself into a vessel for their scaly, watery form of humor.

Self-effacing Omar quote of the day
"I need to apply for one of those genius grants because... I mean, goddamn."
They have discovered "Liquid water" on Saturn, which is significant because... I don't know why. But there might be life on Saturn, perhaps even cute little Saturn fishies, and we should probably get over there and check it out, if only so that Seaworld will have some great new attractions.
PJ brought the news to my attention:
PJ: That's like the biggest astrobiological discovery in pretty much the last 25 years. Longer than my life. And it's in our own freakin' solar system.
OMAR: I hope they have sex plants up there.
PJ:There almost certainly are.
OMAR: I could go for some sex plants. They're like regular plants, but sexual.
PJ: OH! SEX plants.
OMAR: Yeah. Like that. Ferns are kinda sexy, but these are on a whole other level. A whole other planet.

Last night's 24 spoiler ahead
At the end of the episode I went, "Noooo! Edgaaaaaaar!"
I can't think of another instance in my life when I've had to do that.
One poster on TWOP had the funniest, coldest thing to say about it: "Say Hi to your mom."
Ha. Man. Edgar!
Persistent cold syndrome
Apparently the cold I had last week is spreading nationwide and it's not as bad as the flu, but lasts a whole lot longer. If I got you sick and you live in Hawaii or somewhere, I apologize.
There's also a stomach thing going around that took out two of my co-workers with vomiting and bad headaches. Given the choice, I'd take the persistent cold (my body made the choice for me, it seems), but neither one is a good place to be.
Keep those noses clean and Kleenex nearby out there.

Hungry Hungry Hippocrates: Online
Over on Videogamey, the worst videogame names we could think up.
There are plenty of reasons not to watch SNL these days. This isn't one of them:
Dennis Haysbert introduces belated black history month cartoons including, "Ladysmith Black Mambazo... in Outer Space."
(UPDATE: Boo, the video got taken down. Hope it'll show up in iTunes soon.)

Amazing scientific discovery
What I thought was a "Sinus infection" must not have been because my wife now has it and those kinds of things aren't supposed to be contagious.
I now have to conclude that I didn't cure a sinus infection, but the common cold.
I'm spending the weekend examining the wide-ranging implications of this.
