My site and other assorted stuff

I finally got around to installing Winamp. Maybe I'll install that Winamp MT plugin on the blog that shows what I'm listening to one of these days -- but I've got to get some more mp3s. Michele has promised me some Goth ones. We wants them we wants them we wants them!

Sadly, I think the bottle of shiraz will be gone by tonight. Frown.

Oh yes -- I have discovered what those pink puffball plants are that are all over the apartment complex lawn. They are catclaw mimosa plants, which can grow into a shrub or small tree. They are non-native and considered invasive. Good thing the maintenance people mow regularly or we'd be in a forest of the things right now. They are kind of pretty. Maybe I'll dig one up and plant it in a pot. My sinuses are pretty well shot anyway.

Right now I am listening to some sort of trance internet radio station on the Winamp right now. Have I mentioned how much I love having 512 MB of RAM? I just felt like some trancy ambient crap at the moment.

I have been seeing mimosa trees all my life (about 20 feet tall) and always wanted one but I've never seen one at a nursery or in any of the many gardening catalogs I get. I had never heard that they are invasive.

Just about every plant that grows becomes "invasive" in Florida. I have seen some plants that we consider to be weeds sold for rather expensive prices in garden shops up north! But I think that they tend to call any plant not native to the state invasive. (Probably because of the fact that it is so easy for things to grow down here -- an exotic gets loose and just goes wild.) In any case, if you like, I'll mail you some seeds when these plants produce them. ;)

did you know that if you play any kind of trance music backwards, you get a message that says:

"andy warhol is alive and living in cleveland"

heh heh heh
