Yo, as Sly likes to say,
Slow week here at the high castle of weirdness. Lan is tweaking the site with some more bells and whistles and I'm sitting here wondering just what was it that flew over the midwest in the late 1800's. (see, just normal every day stuff)
Anyway I found an old book at the Library (yeah, I went an looked at real honest to God books, wanna make something out of it?) that talked about these sightings of something flying around Kansas and Texas back in the 1880's and 90's. Now this was years before flying saucers were talked about. (the term flying saucers wasn't even used until 1947) So what were these farmers seeing in the sky? Check out my new entry in the Freakopedia that tells all about it.
In other news designed to thrill and titillate you, I went with Mom last week and helped her pick out a new car. Well let's just say I went along. I wanted her to get a Hum-Vee but Mom thought that might not be practical. She got a mini-van instead.
Jason is moving up in the world of shipping and has been named supervisor of his division at the trucking firm he works at. Why anyone would think Jason is supervisor material is beyond me. Maybe he puts on a different face when he's in the corporate world. When he's with me he just looks like a guy trying to stay away from boredom.
OK, enough about the day to day stuff in my thrill a minute life. Maybe something strange will happen to me if I take the dog for a walk. Jeepers, but I hope so.
