Classes will be good, I've been drifting, too zonked out for real intellectual stimulation, but this should get me on track. Reading about elves, I suppose, is somewhat mentally stimulating, but I'm not exactly engaging in literary criticism. Nor is work particularly intellectual.
Speaking of elves and such, I'm rather annoyed that Numenor, which was swallowed up by the sea, was called "Atalante" after its fall. Seriously, guys.
I wish there were some alternative to the modern American right, something that could satisfy the plebes without being so dreadful. One almost longs for the days of Reagan.
Speaking of which, did I mention in my previous diary how amusing it is that Jerry Brown is running for governor of California? California Uber Alles! Die of organic poison gas!
I really like the new Cee-Lo song and video "Fuck You". Reminds me of a girl I once knew (not the particulars, but the sentiment). Great song. I would link, but I can't see youtube at work, so I can't tell whether I'm linking to the right thing.
IGX is down. Dammit.
I was poking around through old CDs looking for music, namely, Spoon albums, but I couldn't seem to find them. I have "Gimme Fiction" on my computer, but nothing earlier. Drat. I like Spoon. Hence my search.
"A Bad Case of the Dates" remains one of my favorite daily-ish feeds. I am so glad to be married, if only because I don't have to deal with that world. Oh, yeah, teh wife is pretty awesome, too.
Somebody's taking me to lunch as payment for some work I did for them. Awesome. A couple hours of my expert attention saved over a week of labor. It's amazing what a simple macro or whatever can do for you. Now, if he could also write a note and copy my boss...
FFFFFFFFFUUUUUUUUUUUUUUU Friend of mine who I really haven't seen as much as I should lately is having a housewarming party this weekend BUT the mother-in-law is in town. He does say we can bring people... Well, whatevs. I'll find some other opportunity the chill with Kool and the Gang.
