Ten thousand flowers in spring, the moon in autumn By Wu Men Hui-k'ai
(1183 - 1260)

English version by Stephen Mitchell

Ten thousand flowers in spring, the moon in autumn,
a cool breeze in summer, snow in winter.
If your mind isn’t clouded by unnecessary things,
this is the best season of your life.

On April 19, 1943, Albert Hofmann, the Swiss father of psychedelic medicine, dropped lysergic acid diethylamide and went on a bike ride, becoming the first human to ever trip on acid.

Every time I see an adult on a bicycle, I no longer despair for the future of the human race. -H.G. Wells

Okay, I went humorous with the title, but it wasn't funny. I make up Drunken Noodles and the oil in the jalapenos got into the air and triggered an asthma attack in my roommate. I knew perfume set her off but certainly had no way to predict this would. I've made the recipe here before without problems. I don't recall if she was out of town when I did. I know I used some other kind of pepper so maybe that made the difference.

In future, at least while I'm Kat's roommate, I'll be adding dried jalapenos after I take the dish off the heat.

After a week of massive stress (and with my roomie out of the house and not hogging the tv), it’s time for tv zone out. I’ve just finished Carmilla. Next up, Captain America.

Today I was reminded that if I'm driving in an area I'm not familiar with and the choice of which way to go is at all ambiguous, I will invariably pick the wrong way.

Goddess but I'm frazzled.

This com is deceased. It's bleeding demised. It's passed on. This com is no more. It has ceased to be. It's expired, oh God, moved on to meet its Maker. This is a late com. Bereft of life, rest in peace. It's run down the curtain and joined the choir invisible. It's an ex-com.

Yesterday makes  three Saturdays in a row that there's been no post to Taming the Muse. I asked about it on the query page but got no response.I know one of the mods wanted to revive it but whatever was tried, if anything, didn't have any effect.

I'm surprised it lasted this long. Years back, when the mods stopped tracking our counts, I figured that was it. So I'm grateful we've had as many prompts as we've had. ;-(

In which BtVS episode does Cordelia go off on some girl wearing the same dress? I think it's at the start of a school day.

So I just finished reading the Buffy origin graphic novel. I haven't seen the movie in a good while, but it's fairly close. All in all I thought it was okayish. Having seen the movie, I didn't really need to read the comic.

My least favorite bit about the comic is that it lost my favorite line from the movie: Pike's response when his vamped friend asks to be invited in. "Invite you in? Man, you're floating!" Not only is it hilarious but it's a fun reference to Salem's Lot.

My favorite scene from the comic is when Buffy tries to pray after her Watcher killed himself to prevent Lothos from Turning him. She starts out with "Our Father who art in Heaven" but doesn't know the prayer and starts talking, as her prayer, to her Watcher. Blew me away when she ended her talk to her Watcher with "Amen." 

I think Lothos should have looked like a young, hot Rutger Hauer but that could be just me.

At the end of the comic, we suddenly learn that Buffy is telling her story to Xander and Willow. Eh, I'd have been okay with that if Sunnydale scenes had bookmarked the story, been shown at both the start and the end rather than just being a surprise at the end. I also wasn't thrilled with "What happened to PIke is another story." 

All in all, not worth the read.

But look at how awesome a villain Rutger Hauer makes!
