comments and archives are up and working – thanks elijah!
i am exhausted. and have so much work to do. put i can’t do anymore tonight. this is it. i’ll just have to get up at 4:30. ugh! doughnuts, indeed.
on an upnote pete and i both got new music today. the other day we were working at soma and this great song came on so i asked what it was and was informed by the cute hipster chick that it was the blow. she also said that she saw them here at a house party a few months ago and had a blast. so when pete went to pick up jazz records i asked him to pick up a cd from the blow. i got bonus album, from 2002 – a weird, lots of acapella, very experimental cd. the music i heard at soma was my fav. girl band quasi-screamy electro-pop-punk. so to give bonus album a fair shake i need to give it another listen because i was totally expecting something different when i put it in. Pete also picked up the concussive caress, which has grown on me. i’m now listening to it for the 3rd time in what was a very busy evening. the cd builds nicely. i love it. and really want the new cd which the record store didn’t have. incidently fanzine stuff – and no, i’m not dancing around my kitchen!
also waiting for me at home was the new issue of national geographic, which always makes me happy.
i should be talking about politics, but really i couldn’t say it better than jill.
today i’m representing SLIS at the ILF conference and it’s been a totally great day. lots of booth traffic when we opened, we got rid of the few applications we had (should have brought more).
Fun things that have happened:
– we’re right across from silly safaris who are these amusing fellows who take exotic animals to libraries and schools and such. i got to hold a milk snake and pet an south american armidillo.
– i got to have lunch with kate
– i met a totally nice tech instructor from INCOLSA. i might like his job.
3 point of interest:
– i finally got photos uploaded to flickr
– thanks to jill of third wave agenda for the link. if your not reading her blog, you’re really missing out
– thanks to winnie for pointing out that when you click on my comments in firefox they appear to be b0rked. i still get your comments in my e-mail so post if you can. i’m working on a fix.
so today i’ve been working since 3pm on this long-ass reference assignment. I begrudge them only because they take so long. But on some level i must admit i find them fun. I feel like i’m 6 again and someone has let me loose on the dictionaries and encylopedias. like taking crack, reading a little leads to reading a little more, and pretty soon you’ve worked your way through the entire L volume and mom is ready to leave so you through a tantrum because you can’t take M out of the library.
Tomorrow i have 15.5 more reference questions to do, i have to read an article (which fortunately i’ve already read 2x before), and write 2 abstracts on it, then work in at least 3 hours of perl coding (hopefully more like 4 or 5).
and to think, this time last we we were playing cards in Hutchinson Island. *sigh*
because i’m a follower at heart, just like amy, i have added our cats to catster!
you can find both murphy and tenchi there!
