Tom Lehrer is Smug

(no subject)

A longish sort of update on things and general meditations on how stress and worrying are never any good for anybody. For those who just want a neat link, I found this comic nice and poetic. The rest of his site is just as good, and he has an entire section devoted to Pelorian Cats, a 20-year-old Japanese fad which was the precursor to the Catprin "dress up the cats and make 'em look silly" way of thinking. (The "Cat High" book is very very very creepy-looking and kinda unfunny, given the number of cheap cat puns tossed into it. I think I did it much better for Cat Town Tech, thank you very much.) All in all, though, a very interesting read. Now for the other stuff.

Here's something to think about.

Kenan Thompson is the first SNL cast member (well, he's a "featured player" right now but let's not quibble) who is actually younger than the show. He was born in 1978.

As Myron Cope would say, "yoi!"
