Muddled Rambling and Random Musing

The bad thing about being sick is that once you are recovering you are still exhausted. My energy levels have been fluctuating like a simile that eludes me right now.

Anyway, a while back I read on Jamie's blog that he has only purchased ONE of my blogshares because they were too expensive. So I have just emerged from that dark and scary place (aka the main template) where I added several links to my blogroll in an attempt to make myself more affordable. I don't know if it is going to work, but the basic laws of supply and demand indicate that the more there is of something, the less it's worth, so I thought I would give it a try...

I have been intermittantly fluttering around the blogosystem today, and I read a lot of interesting posts, but I just don't have the energy at the moment to re-seek them and link to them and etc. (I apologize to those bloggers at whose places I did not leave comments, and suggest you consider yourselves the lucky ones...)
So I am going to tell you about the movie I saw this afternoon....my niece (who doesn't start school until tomorrow--although that sounds like I only have one niece, when in actual fact I have seven) and I went to see RUGRATS GO WILD. (It's at my theater, it's my day off, and we got in free...).

I give this movie two big thumbs and two big toes up! It was a very well done "family" movie--which means there was witty repartee for the grownups to chuckle at, and broad slapstick for the children and the men to enjoy. It was actually a Rugrats-meet-the Wild Thornberrys, and I had to get my niece to explain some of the characters' relationships (in the car on the way home, natch--Susie does not disturb other patrons by talking in a movie...), but overall I enjoyed it. It was rated PG rather than G because of a few scenes of "peril". But it's not too perilous unless you're like Chuckie Fenster.

I hardly ever use this extended entry thing, because it seems to me it's really only good for hiding the punchline to a joke, and then it's usually annoying because there's only one or two more lines there. However, I have noticed that the Emperor makes excellent use of the extended entry, so if I do decide to use this more often I will be sure to emulate him and make it worth my readers' while.

So let me add that the various Wars I am involved in seem to be going well, although the Axis of Evil Naughty seems to be pulling ahead in the creative titles department (which reminds me--what ever happened to the Slutatarians?) while the Alliance has the photoshopping sewn up...

I haven't stopped by Kin's lately to see how hard I need to ping Kevin to stay in the race, but the way things have been shaping up it looks like the Hobo Killer might get my permaroll spot.....

I hope you feel better soon, although you seem to write more when ill.

adults or men. heh.

I think the Axis is better organized...and not dying of monkeypox.
