That one cuts a little close to home.  ;)

The Rock and Roll Hall of Fame has an opening for the Director of Archives and Library -- how cool would that be!

You know you need a life when going to Meijer's feels like a long excursion.
I mailed some things, returned my overdue library books, went to the grocery store, found some bamboo towels on sale ($6 each!), made a donation to public radio for their membership drive, and emailed the critical analysis draft to the prof.'s teaching assistant. 

Still, I feel like I got very little done.

Netflix has The Facts of Life Season Three on Instant viewing!  Woot! 

Tootie's getting drunk!  And the headmaster is about to visit!

"We are not afraid to entrust the American people with unpleasant facts, foreign ideas, alien philosophies, and competitive values. For a nation that is afraid to let its people judge the truth and falsehood in an open market is a nation that is afraid of its people."

For the women on my friends list, although the guys might appreciate it too:

I watched Oprah today.  My viewings of her show are pretty sporadic -- I think she needs to stay out of politics and my sister blames her for Dr. Phil.  :)

Today's show was very interesting, though.  Her guest was Gavin De Becker, author of The Gift of Fear, and the topic was how women should trust their natural fear instincts.  I'd recommend watching the show if you can, but there were two specific things said that really made me pause and I wanted to share them.

1.  "In our culture, when a man says no, it's the end of the conversation.  When a woman says no, it's the beginning of a negotiation."

2.  "A man's worst fear is that a woman will laugh at him.  A woman's worst fear is that a man will kill her."

This is brilliant -- and insane.  :)

Wow, I don't know what's up here, but my sleep schedule is SO screwed up.  I barely slept last night at all and my brain is just fried.

Bad day at Cleveland.  Things didn't go the way I'd hoped.

I just had to share this...

My health insurance runs out at the end of August so I've been calling doctors almost daily trying to get an appointment before time is up.  Aside from that disastrous appointment last week, I haven't had any luck.  Until today.  I called Cleveland and asked about cancellations, and she said, "August 14 at 1:30pm."  Holy crap, that's tomorrow.  : )  So I said I'd take it!  This is the doc I couldn't see until October 23rd and I see him tomorrow!  And, hopefully, this guy will make things happen for me.  He has been known to prescribe the antibiotics that fight MAP so *fingers crossed*.

Not sure I can handle another disappointment like last year.

Holy crap, it's August!  How can it be August already?

My brain is dead, but I finished 'Deathly Hallows.'  Anyone else want to talk specifics/spoilers?
sunrisescholar: (Babylon)
Not that I post a huge amount, but I'm headed to Wilmington and plan to be offline until I've read Deathly Hallows.

Woo hoo!

Bad day and I need to shake it off so I can finish my last task.

On a positive note, I am completely done with my Master's coursework -- or so it seems.

I'm having trouble remembering that I'm not actually done yet.  : )

And it's pretty pretty weather.

Apparently, Sanjaya was at the White House Press Correspondents' Dinner.  They're talking about him on MSNBC right now and Joe Scarborough informed one of his "experts" of this fact. 

Her reply?  "The White House has enough credibility issues right now.  I can't believe they brought Sanjaya in."

Made me giggle.  Quite a lot.

That is all.

Had to quote this.  From State of Denial:

Col. Steve Rotkoff haiku:

Where is WMD?
What a kick if he has none
Sorry about that
