Ten Time Random People are Singing the Theme for the Odd Couple—What is Going on?
1. Someone was singing about it at B——'s work. This was the catalyst.
2. Someone at a bus stop was humming it.
3. A guy at work was singing it on the phones.
4. A trainer at work was humming it on the couch.
5. They were whistling it on Will and Grace.
1. Damned by Chuck Palahniuk: This is not so much a plot error as a mistake (and unfortunately my copy of this text does seem to have quite a few editing errors of the sort that in film we would call continuity). Madison gets lifted up from a desert of finger and toe nail parings by a monster, with that monster's hope of eating her. She has her arms pinned against her body, but when she reaches the monster's mouth she is able to brace herself with hands against top lip and feet against bottom. This is a King Kong kind of grip the monster has. How did she free her arms?
Ten People I Could Be Next Year if I Do an Obsession a Month Blog.
1. A Goth.
2. A Cowboy.
3. A Mod.
4. A Burlesque Girl (a la mode de Dita von Teese).
5. Fringe Cool. This is a mode d'etre that I developed for being cool in a way that wasn't. It was what I considered myself and my friends to be. We were into knitting and clothing that was so old that it was almost new again. Problem was, we were also so old that we were new again and now everyone is Fringe Cool. Fringe Cool is environmental, it is op-shop, it is daggy, it is literary. now to be Fringe Cool, we just have to be actual cool. This was the closest I came to an identity based obsession without a blog project. Now to be Fringe Cool I will have to be something that is weirdly alien to me even though I was it before. It's all a little odd.
6. A Beatnik Poet.
Ten Groups of Road Names on a Theme Found in the Melways.
1. In Avondale Heights there is an enclave of famous beach locations: Cannes, San Remo, Capri, Venice, Monte Carlo. Sounds nice. Avondale Heights is a tab away from the beach.
2. In Gowenbrae we have a forest of English flowers: bluebells and daffodils, irises, roses, lilac and primroses, even some clover. 16 D2
3. In Melton there are the race horses, and not just any—Melbourne Cup winners: Kingston Rule, Black Knight, Wodalla, Light Fingers, Jeune and Tawriffic. The last is always fun to spell when you're trying to find someone's emergency! 336 K5
4. Doncaster has a range of Australia trees. It's a biological learning expedition to drive around there. 33 A10
5. On the other hand Doncaster has gone for some Mythological characters. It's all a bit cerebral in that 'burb. 33 A10
6. I'm thinking they like themes. And all that learning needs a relief, so Doncaster also comes with a range of wines. 33 A10 (ish)
7. In Mont Albert you can literally walk the ways of the Saints. 75A F5
8. In a postmodern move, the street names in the town of Craigieburn are named ofter towns in South West England which all have a street named Craigieburn in them. Just kidding, any links appear tenuous. 386 G11
Ten Things I Have Learned About myself from Free Internet Quizzes.

Ten 'Guesses' That Come Up in the Drop-Down Box When You Put an 's' for 'Stasis' in the Dictionary.com Toolbar Search Box.
1. Scooby Doo: Curse of the Lake Monster. I suppose the dynamic forces between Shaggy and Scooby Doo don't change. Stasis.
2. Sarah Butler. Who? Oh, okay, thanks Google. An actress. Seems like she likes horror movies. Can't see the stasis here.
Me? I like Pina Colada (but mainly if its made from white rum and strawberries) and getting caught in the rain (yeah, I just like that). I like lists, Scrabble and puppies, and semi-colons are my favourite punctuation (em dashes are a close second). You? I guess you just need to like hearing me waffle on!
