Waaaaay too beautiful outside to do anything productive.

I’m playing hooky.

Any takers?

Al Franken’s new show starts today at noon ET.

Listen to it here.

Mmmm, delicious irony.

Buy ME to buck brand loyalty and consumeristic

trends in society today. Wait a second…

Part of me thinks it’s hilarious that Adbusters is hawking their own product for sale, the black spot sneaker.

Yeah, so it’s partly done to thumb their noses at Nike and other sneaker companies — but in the process, they’ve created their own brand and their own consumeristic following.

… and doesn’t that defeat their whole purpose? Hmmm.

Anyway, TV Turnoff Week is April 19-25. Mark your calendars. (if I only watch Daily Show, will it still count? A grrrl has got to get her fake-news on, doesn’t she?)

Which Homestar Runner character are you?

Yay — while being a bit frighteningly accurate.

Fun song overheard whilst typing in the library.

Remember when this happened last year?

Well, the window that was replaced is now officially faulty. The siding on well, the side, came completely unglued — making it nearly impossible to roll my window up/down.

I took it to the glass place today, wary that it would cost me money I don’t have — but it’s still under warranty! Woohoo! You see, my luck with warranties usually is that I return to the place where I bought something… only to discover the warranty ran out yesterday. Not so today. The people at the glass place were very nice, and I’ll have a new window installed tomorrow — so I can enjoy rolling it down to feel the Spring wind on my face again.

Now to finish this lovely book review I can’t wait to have behind me.


I love deadlines. I especially like the whooshing sound they make as they go flying by. (Douglas Adams)

Two items knocked off my list to the left. Well, technically only one of them is completely finished (the scholarship app). Ideally, the book review will be completed as of the end of class tomorrow.
