*unable to watch paint dry. begins reading newspapers.*
sexyrobot, I don't know why, but that fascinating little tidbit re the sticky tape is very sexy...
they learnt that with one of my favorite sexy devices, the electron microscope... how'd they figure out this paint stuff?

Firefox didn't work, but using IE Tab extension to switch that tab to rendering with IE did work, and I watched the cool little animation. And yes, I must say the though of all the little sellotape glue blob snuggling up together does cause a warm feeling...

watching grass grow
watching corn grow
*sexyrobot slinks into the spotlight and casts a sultry glance at the audience here in this smoky cabaret. leaning into the microphone, and in warm tones, and a cappella, he begins to sing* Stuck on you I’ve got this feeling down Deep in my soul That I just can’t lose Guess, I’m on my way Needed a friend And the way I feel now I guess I’ll be with you till the end Guess I’m on my way Mighty glad you stayed I’m stuck on you Been a fool too long I guess It’s time for me to come on home Guess I’m on my way So hard to see That a woman like you could wait Around for a man like me Guess I’m on my way Mighty glad you stayed Oh, I’m leaving on that midnight train And I know just where I’m going I’ve packed up my troubles And I’ve thrown them all away Because this time little darlin’ I’m coming home to stay I’m stuck on you I’ve got this feeling down Deep in my soul That I just can’t lose Guess, I’m on my way Needed a friend And the way I feel now I guess I’ll be with you till the end Guess I’m on my way I’m mighty glad you stayed *with closed eyes, he nods to the applause, turns, and walks away*
Ben had a stick it broke in two now his efforts must redouble to find out what two sticks can do in the way of causing trouble
