I meant to post this little observation a while ago:

Emily Procter is my kind of insane chick. Yes, she's attractive, yes, she plays a smart woman on CSI: Miami. And on The West Wing. Not so much on Just Shoot Me or Friends. With the smart, that is. But she's in some movie coming out real soon now, something like "Martin Lawrence is a big woman, part two". Which means that she's on the talk show circuit. I caught her on Martha Stewart and Conan O'Brien, and she mentioned that when her pet passed away, she might just get it stuffed. And mounted on a little cart, so she can pull it around the house.

Emily, you're nuts.

Also, Geena Davis is 50 years old. Yow.

In addition, I found my pen. You didn't know I was looking for it, but my purple ultra-fine-point Sharpie (tm) permanent marker wasn't turning up where I thought I might have left it. Granted, I've got plenty of ultra-fine-point Sharpies (tm) around the house, so when I needed to label a DVD of Tick episodes (note the icon), I managed to get myself through, but I was still anxious, wondering where the pen had got to. But I found it. And that makes me happy.

Perhaps more than it should. Back when I was in the Boy Scouts, I had to memorize the 10 essentials - the list of things that you really ought to bring with you into The Wilderness. I can still rattle off the first few things:

  1. Positive Mental Attitude
  2. First Aid Kit
  3. Shelter
  4. Fire Starting Tools

And the mnemonic device I used to remember those items was to associate the shape of the number with an image. For #4, I thought of an upside down chair, viewed side-on, which resembles the number four. And if you broke that chair up, it makes kindling, which you can use to start a fire. And #2 looks like a swan. And swans are well known for swooping in with bandages, iodine, and burn cream. But the most important thing to have with you is a pen. Because a pen looks like the number 1. And having a pen makes you happy. And being happy is a positive mental attitude.

I said "positive", not necessarily "sane".
