I was at the corner store earlier this evening. I saw a couple of people getting some random things. They looked to be together, and it turned out to be father and daughter.
They were at the country paying when I walked up with my load of "stuff".
The man asked for my name, saying that he forgot it. I responded in saying that I don't recall ever giving it to him before.
It turns out that I probably hadn't, but that he lived two houses up the street from where I do.
I said that my name was Phil, and he introduced himself and his daughter "I'm Larry, and this is my daughter Nikita, or Niki"
I wasn't sure I heard it right, and looked at her "Nikita?"
She nodded kinda shyly.
"I guess you prefer Niki though, right?"
Her eyes grew bigger and she nodded quickly in that kind of "oh, gods yes" sort of way.
She looked to have been around 15 years old or so. Had a down played glam punk look to her.
I looked it up, and La Femme Nikita was released 13 years ago (this month). She might have been that old. Was flat chested, so might have been.
In any case, who names, their kid Nikita? Even if it was before the show was out, it wasn't a common name.
Here's something of interest, though. Nikita is actually a male Russian name (Никита), and yet most people in the western world associate it to females. The name comes from the Greek Niketas (Νικητας), which in turn is derived from the Greek νικη (nike) meaning "victory". So...
Nike the shoe brand means "victory" and this girl has a Russian male name, from the ancient Greek word for victory which now adorns the side of a shoe.

There are many songs and videos on the internet that spawn memes of their own.
Chocolate rain was one such video. It actually became so popular that Tay Zonday got to do his own commercial for Dr. Pepper

Today, I learned how important water is to have handy.
There's the obvious need for water, and thirst and all that, but there's something else that I discovered (or rediscovered, actually).
If you have a ready supply of water, then you eat less. Some times people, myself included, will just want to be consuming something, Eating or drinking, Either one; doesn't matter.
With water handy, not only does it help with the oral interaction, it is also needed by the body. What is it, 1-2 litres a day?
Not only that, but just water doesn't have much in the way of a salty or sweet taste, so unlike chips or pop, it doesn't make you want more.
Go water go.
Once lost about 30 lbs by drinking a lot of water and walking more. Okay being broke also helped with that.

"A man was arrested yesterday, charged with attempting to obtain money under false pretenses. He claimed he was promoting a device whereby one person could talk to another several miles away, by means of a small apparatus and some wire. Without doubt this man is a fraud and an unscrupulous trickster and must be taught that the American public is too smart to be the victim of this and similar schemes. Even if this insane idea worked it would have no practical value other than for circus sideshows."

News paper article about the arrest of Alexander Graham Bell.

Interesting. Had to relink it.
