Didn't sleep last night at all since I slept most of yesterday thanks to that migraine. Hopefully I will be able to actually do tags today *crosses fingers* I apologize to those I've been lagging on!
Anyway, random sleep fail called for an Allen/Astrid gif (it's becoming tradition if I can't sleep), especially after I watched a bunch of Farscape:
Astrid: It's not your job to save everyone!
Allen: No one else will.
HE'S THE GODDAMN BATMAN, OKAY!?
So basically when I can't sleep I have Farscape marathons and read Hellblazer.
I'm having a really good day so far. :)
and it's basically the lovechild of The Black Donnelly's (David Lyons could be Jonathan Tucker's brother)/Carnivale/Burton's Batman movies.
( how I feel about it )
I LOVE IT.
Also, my SGA DVDs came in the mail today, so along with watching Farscape I WILL BE WATCHING ALL FIVE SEASONS OF SGA!!!!
Interviewer: Will you have to move there [to Hawaii]?
Alex: We will move, yeah. We were sort of gonna move next month…I just looked at you like we’re moving together—
Alex: —this is getting stranger and stranger. We’re gonna move individually, but we’re all gonna be there.

Oh well, it's nice to just sit around and relax. Tomorrow we're checking out Boston and seeing Demetri Martin.
Hi asthma. I did not miss you.
In other news, the Persons Unknown score is EPIC. *LISTENS*
While determining exact time of death is impossible (sorry kids, Horatio lied to you) they have managed to create formulas that allow them to narrow it down to the day just by studying the lifespan of the surrounding insects and plant life. Most of this I already knew since I've had this morbid curiosity since I was a kid, but this book takes it apart and lays it out simply for the less scientific mind to understand. Some of the details are very gruesome, so if you have a low tolerance for that avoid it, but if you don't and manage to get your hands on this book I recommend it!
I can confidently say after reading this and studying the decomposition process that I don't want to be embalmed when I die. I think entomologist Jean Pierre Mégnin said it best:
"In the end nothing rests next to the white bones but a sort of brown earth, finely granular, composed of insect pupal cases...and the excrements of successive generations of insects...thus is accomplished this parable of the scripture: You are dust and unto dust you shall return."
The human body is the most complex and amazing creation ever made, and the decomposition process just further proves it.
