Monday Mayhem: PONDERISMS Part II

10· In the 60's, people took acid to make the world weird. Now the world is weird and people take Prozac to make it normal. So, what is normal? Monday Mayhem

11· How is it one careless match can start a forest fire, but it takes a whole box to start a campfire? Anything could go up in smoke with carelessness

12· Who was the first person to look at a cow and say, 'I think I'll squeeze these dangly things and drink whatever comes out'? Thought it was the calf

13· If Jimmy cracks corn and no one cares, why is there a song about him? Dunno

14· Why does an OB-GYN leave the room when women get undressed if they are going to look up there anyway? 'Up there' is their business, not what else is covered

15· If quizzes are quizzical, what are tests? Testy

16· If corn oil is made from corn, and vegetable oil is made from vegetables, then what is baby oil made from? ask Johnson

17· Do illiterate people get the full effect of Alphabet Soup? Reading is spelled differently from slurping

18· Does pushing the elevator button more than once make it arrive faster? Try it

19· Why doesn't glue stick to the inside of the bottle? Same as epoxy doesn't stick to the inside of the tube

20· Do you ever wonder why you gave someone your email address? No. I'm not unconscious of who I want to be in contact with.

Sense and Sensibility: 200th anniversary

In 1811 Thomas Egerton of Whitehall, London published Sense and Sensibility. Quick math shows it has been two centuries since Jane Austen became a full-fledged author.

Quite an anniversary, indeed. A celebration, I declare.

Blogs regarding the publication anniversary of this romance novel picture Jane Austen's engagements whilst making the final touches of her manuscript from Sloane Street. In letters to her sister Cassandra, Jane gave accounts of her shopping for muslin, the party that their brother Henry and SIL Eliza gave; mentioned several acquaintances, and referred to her book as S and S.

As a fan I wonder which between sense and sensibility did JA deem more important since she portrayed both attributes equally well. I'm obliged to enthuse over my S & S reading experience. Alas, I only managed fourteen chapters before getting sidetracked by another novel, the very first that JA wrote. I will resume and complete my affair with the celebrant before 2011 ends.

The Rumford is a much more efficient way to heat a room than earlier fireplaces....(Wikipedia on Benjamin Thompson, Count Rumford, designer of tall, shallow fireplaces which are now known as the Rumford, was an Anglo-American physicist known for his investigations of heat)Living in the tropics, I have been in close proximity with only three fireplaces in my life. There was an unused one in the home of my college professor in the Philippines. The other one from which I could feel the heat and see the fire dancing was in a hotel lobby in the Yorkshire Moors. Picture taking was quick. Two old ladies were having tea by it, but that was my first ever real fireplace experience, and I loved it. The latest I have touched is the one in Jane Austen's imaginary Northanger Abbey.
The fireplace, where she had expected the ample width and ponderous carvings of former times, was contracted to a Rumford, with slabs of plain though handsome marbles, and ornament over it of the prettiest English ch…
