Hey look. Hey look. = ) Hello Gattaca!
Alright, After a nice 4 day weekend I feel good. I feel pretty damn good. Thinking nothing about work, until typing it just now that is, has been wonderful! Of course I need to explain myself slightly. First, the best news of the weekend:
The First Human Cloned Embryo - Scientific American
Cloned early-stage human embryosand human embryos generated only from eggs, in a process called parthenogenesisnow put therapeutic cloning within reach...
First human embryo is cloned
Dr Robert Lanza, vice president of medical and scientific development at ACT, based in Worcester, Massachusetts, said: "Our intention is not to create cloned human beings.
"Rather it is to make lifesaving therapies for a wide range of human disease conditions, including diabetes, strokes, cancer, Aids and neuro-degenerative disorders such as Parkinson's and Alzheimer's disease."
Two words - Happy happy, joy joy. It's the 'Happy Happy Joy Joy Song'. "I don't think you're happy enough! That's right! I'll teach you to be happy! I'll teach your grandmother to suck eggs! Now, boys and girls, let's try it again!" While there may be some of you against this type of thing. I ask one thing of you. Just one, only one. Seems like it's gonig to be huge with me asking so many times doesn't it. Well, it's not. It's actually pretty damn simple. Small. Tiny. Petite one might say if one were in France. But, why would someone want to go to France? <PIC OF ME IN FRANCE> Okay, so I was in France. I left, i'm back I'm happy to be back. Oh, the one thing, sorry, almost forgot. The one thing is... DEAL WITH IT. It's going to happen. Too many people WANT it to happen. = )
Ahh, I'm so excited. What a great first step toward an extended life. Ahhh...
On the movie front I saw a couple movies this weekend. First up on Thanksgiving I saw 'Spy Game' with me mudda. Pretty good flic. Nothing AMAZING, but worth the 8 dollars in coins. I'd suggest it as a bargain matinee flic aka 3 of 4 stars.
Also in movie news I finally sat through 'James Clavell's Shogun'. Impressed? Not all all. AMAZED is more like it. Stunned also fits the bill better than impressed. This is a marvelous piece of cinema. If you get 549 minutes of free time I suggest you spend it in front of a TV with this series in the VCR. So what if it's 4 VHS cassettes. So what if you'll go through a pack or two of cookies and a half gallon of a% milk. So what, it's all in the fun of it. Rent it at Blockbuster, it's only $4. Can you say BARGAIN.
$4/4 cassettes/549 minutes = Um, bargain.
The weather has been great with rain and warmth. I spent money on a new jacket thanks to the help of 'the door'. G-thanks, not like I wanted to spend all that money. Dannngit. I say to you again "G double R." I'm going to go run around in my head now. I feel good. Relaxed. I wonder when I'll type the word stress again and mean it. Hmm, what can I say? I'm a happy boy...<- meaning -> out
