1. On the way in to work today, I saw a car with a license plate that read "VUJA DE." Gosh, I've never seen that before.

2. Someone in the parking lot has a bumper sticker that says "My Yorkshire Terrier is smarter than your honor student." Which is a damning indictment of the American educational system if true. Personally, I think the person has a somewhat inflated opinion of his/her dog because, c'mon, a Yorkie?

3. jjfmi and I had a good rehearsal last night for our show coming up on October 13, 2006 at Trixie's Coffee in Roseville. No, we're not triskaidekaphobic, why do you ask?

Heh. You'd better be prepared to duck the incoming thrown Yorkies. I have a cat who can take care of them for you.

If a dog is small enough to fit in a teacup, how much brain capacity can it have?

Unfortunately, I don't think those snyde bumper stickers are intended as an indictment of the American educational system, regardless of how vulnerable to indictment it might be. One I've seen frequently reads: "My kid beat up your honor student."

It's actually an expression of blue-collar anti-intellectualism, which is rampant in the US. And that is partly inspired in turn by the grade inflation and the affirmation movement. Around here half those honor student bumper stickers are for elementary schools or even pre-schools. How much honor is attendant upon getting the alphabet right? It should be expected of everyone.

There sure are a lot of those honor student stickers everywhere, here at least. It's good to be proud of your kids, but if there are so many stickers then how easy is it to be an honor student?

I've toyed with the idea of making a sticker that says "I was and honor student and look what it got me" and putting it on my old truck (except the truck sits in the garage all the time now). But now that you mention the rampant anti-intellectualism already here, I realize that my joke sticker wouldn't really be a joke. (Great. Now I'm going to have to have a liquid lunch. :( )

Please don't throw the Yorkies. It only annoys them and they keep yapping even more. Any cat that can take care of them is a friend of mine.

That's our big orange tom cat, the one who decided to move into the house from the barn on New Year's day this year. I've actually seen him run off the neighbors' obnoxious yapping Cairn terrier, and that breed is noted for its tenacity in the face of large rodents like rats, squirrels, and even weasels. Yet all Rikki has to do is look at him and he turns tail, yelping, and takes off.

It's fear of boxes of little biscuits made of wheat.

Hmm.... well, THAT explains some things. Lori and I were engaged on a Friday the 13th... AND we followed up our Japanese meal with (gasp)... snack crackers....

Coincidence? I think not...
