But you can blame it on someone else today.

Nathan said...

But Vince, I'm taking credit for being such a genius.

Nathan said...

And also, thanks.

Since I bother to update that stupid thing every day, it's nice to be reminded every once in a while that someone actually looks at it.

Michelle K said...

I comment!

I just had no response to your past couple posts is all.

Nathan said...

I've noticed Michelle. I just felt like acknowledging that I like it being acknowledged....or something.

I find it fitting that I read this post immediately after stopping by Janiece's site to read about the irrationalism of homeopathy.

Michelle K said...

Well, we could always turn it around and claim that you have been failing us in not posting posts that drew us out to comment.

But I don't think that''ll work, because I've noticed a dearth of commenting a lot of places the past week or so.

You'd think it's spring and people are outside or something.

(NOTE: It is 46 degrees F at 4:30 PM in Morgantown.)

Michelle,

Never let it be said that I'm getting my vitamin D instead of slavishly trying to entertain you.

Michelle K said...

Does this mean we can have a "who sends more time inside under fluorescent lights" contest?

Nathan said...

I prefer tungsten

Michelle K said...

Almost all our lights are switched to energy saving fluorescents.

But the same principle applies I believe.

MWT said...

Did you know that tungsten is an element? Abbreviated by the symbol W? :D

I haven't even managed to post to my own blog lately, never mind come up with coherent things to say on other people's...

Nathan said...

Tungsten is a lighting classification in movies/tv (probably the filaments were tungsten originally)

Generically, though, when we say tungsten we mean lights that burn warm (approximately 3800 degrees kelvin). Fluorescents look green on film. HMI's burn close to daylight (5600 - 6500 degrees kelvin).

Michelle K said...

Yes they do burn warm, which is why now, even thought we've switched to cooler fluorescents, my large cat sits underneath our lamps, close to the bulbs, as if he were warming his furry head.

Like so (That's not actually my large primary cat. That's the secondary back-up cat, Slate, who is no longer with us [or anyone else.])

Nathan said...

I wouldn't want to make light of such a thing, but a secondary back-up cat who is no longer with you (or anybody else), isn't doing the job right.

On second thought, though, that's pretty much par for the course with cats.

MWT said...

Directory has no index file. :(

I was making a subtle reference to the periodic table quiz we had last week. I guess it was too subtle...

Nathan said...

MWT,

I think I knew that. I was just trying to point out that in spite of me not bothering with the test (since I know it would be epic fail), I do know some stuff.

Michelle K said...

Well, the secondary back up cat was 18, and had lived 17 of those 18 years outside. So as the secondary backup cat, it's not like she had a lot of demands placed on her.

Though strangely enough, she was the most affectionate can we've ever had.
