Spelling words for 2005
The Washington Post once again invited readers to take any word from the dictionary, alter it by adding, subtracting, or changing one letter, and supply a new definition. Here are this year's winners:
Bozone (n.): The substance surrounding stupid people that stops bright ideas from penetrating. The bozone layer, unfortunately, shows little sign of breaking down in the near future.
Foreploy (n): Any misrepresentation about yourself for the purpose of getting laid.
Cashtration (n.): The act of buying a house, which renders the subject financially impotent for an indefinite period.
Sarchasm (n): The gulf between the author of sarcastic wit and the person who doesn't get it.
Inoculatte (v): To take coffee intravenously when you are running late.
Hipatitis (n): Terminal coolness.
Osteopornosis (n): A degenerate disease. (This one got extra credit.)
Karmageddon (n): It's like, when everybody is sending off all these really bad vibes, right? And then, like, the Earth explodes and it's like, a serious bummer.
Decafalon (n.): The grueling event of getting through the day consuming only things that are good for you.
Glibido (v): All talk and no action.
Dopeler effect (n): The tendency of stupid ideas to seem smarter when they come very quickly.
And the pick of the literature: Ignoranus (n): A person who's both stupid and an asshole.

Howdy folks ...
As you probably noticed, I haven't been much for the public writing forum as of late. Perhaps too much internal conflict, perhaps too much external conflict ... who can really say.
I won't be posting here too often now ... but thanks for making the time I did spend here worth the effort. And do feel free to drop an email from time to time if you miss Bad Kitty :)

My favorite quote of the week
In response to a Wisconsin man's threats to sue his cable television company Charter Communications for conspiring to turn his entire family into a bunch of couch potatoes ... Charter's local public relations director, John Miller, said:
(Exception to the rule ... watching Texas Hold'em poker ... which is as medically addictive as nicotine.)
GROW A MUSTACHE ROOKIE!
I admit it ... I just added this because I wanted to say that.
A county in the central Indian state of Madhya Pradesh is offering perks to policemen who grow moustaches which seniors argue add to the stature of the men in uniform, a report said.

Your daily dose ...
Thirty-five million Californians are getting their first taste of The Governator - a new beer commemorating the Golden State's 38th governor, Arnold Schwarzenegger. Brewed and bottled by Pumping Iron Brewing Company, The Governator Ale comes in a strapping, 22-ounce bottle adorned with a flexing beau, paying homage to the Austrian-born bodybuilder-turned-actor-turned-governor. Released in time for the holidays, The Governator will be available statewide through the end of spring for approximately $2.99 a bottle.
"The big surprise is that The Governator, behind its novelty packaging, is actually top-notch," says Pumping Iron Brewing spokesperson Jerome Chicvara. "We're hoping this is a sign of things to come in Sacramento."
The Governator Ale is a craft-brewed ESB (extra special bitter) styled after England's finest "session" beers. The ale is easy-drinking, well-hopped and a bit stronger in alcohol than most craft beers.
Now you too can experience the amazing feeling of "the pump" as you lift your beer up and down building your puny biceps into towering muscles! ;-P

Everything has a Silver Lining ...
This SO seems like something my crew would have done back in high school or college ... I recall one incident of filling a car with styrofoam peanuts (to the brim.)

The walls, ceiling, cabinets and everything in between shimmered, after the prank orchestrated by Kirk's longtime friend, Luke Trerice, 26, who was staying in the apartment while Kirk was away.
No detail was too small or too time-consuming. The toilet paper was unrolled, wrapped in foil, then rolled back up again. The friends covered Kirk's book and compact disc collections but made sure each CD case could open and shut normally. They even used foil on each coin in Kirk's spare change.
And to sweeten the theme, they left silver Hershey's kisses sprinkled throughout the apartment.
The odd couple
(Reuters) -- Muschi, a small cat that formed an unlikely friendship with a half-ton bear called "mouse" in Berlin Zoo, has been reunited with her companion after pining outside the bear's cage for months, the zoo said Friday.
Muschi, which means "pussy," has been popular with zoo visitors ever since she appeared in the bear's enclosure three years ago. But the pair were split up last October when the bear was locked in a cage while her living space was enlarged.
Zoo keepers took pity on the distraught cat that had taken to roaming around the zoo and sitting outside the cage, and this week allowed her in the cage with the shaggy female Asiatic black bear called "Maeuschen," which means little mouse.
"They greeted each other and had a cuddle and now they're happy," said Heiner Kloes, a member of the zoo's management board. "The cat has a real fan club, mostly among our older, regular visitors."
No one knows where Muschi, a normal black domestic cat, came from. "She appeared from nowhere in 2000 and we decided to leave them together because they got on so well," said Kloes. "They sunbathed together and shared meals of raw meat, dead mice, fruit and bread."
The enlarged enclosure will reopen in the spring.
