What does it say about me that I use the Internet to help me solve crossword puzzles?
I suppose that I'm a touch obsessive.
Also, One Across's Crossword Puzzle Dictionary is teh awesome and I loves it.
And I can't decide if I should sleep or stay up all night to make it to the airplane tomorrow.
And I really hope I get to see Sandra and Dr. Myers this weekend, because really, I'm a big huge dork.

The email my Daddy sent me today:
On Wednesday of this week, at two minutes and three seconds after 1:00 AM in the morning, the time and date will be 01:02:03 04/05/06. That won't ever happen again.

So now you're informed.

If you don't have dinner, when you wake up the next morning you will likely have a headache rather like a mild hangover.

Dear Borders:
It is perhaps not very wise to have the Erotica shelf facing the Religion shelf, so that those looking for Christian fiction or the Koran or books on Kabbalah might turn around and see a selection of erotica and sex advice books. It is, however, hilarious, and I thank you for injecting that humor into my day.
Much love,

Dear Mercury:
This retrograde thing really isn't working for me. It was bad enough when I thought that I was the one having a bad week, but when you start messing with everyone? While on the one had it's nice to have something to blame it on (even something implausible), when bad things start happening to my friends then my Cancer/Dog start acting up and I wish to do something to remedy the situation.
No love,

Dear people who do bad things to my friends:
Seriously? Stop. It is not acceptable and if I had my way lightning would strike you, and it would hit you in your most sensitive bits, if you catch my drift.
Much loathing,

Dear tourists:
You might, perhaps, consider that when you board the bus, I am looking down at you. And while your ample cleavage does not excite me, as I have my own, I cannot guarantee that other tour guides might not be rather pleased that you chose that particular top.

Today, after work, I bought a book and a teapot and then came home and took a bubble bath and read the first two chapters of Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince. Also, the pizza and wings I got delivered last night made a handy lunch, and were delivered much faster than I anticipated, and they gave me blue cheese dressing with the wings! There is a new phone coming to me and I don't have class next week (Spring Break). I may go to the movies at some point as well. Perhaps cheaper than retail therapy.
So perhaps things are looking up.

Kate directed me towards this photo essay at Slate magazine. It's a series of photos on being Gay in America.
Behind the cut, my two favorites.

I actually teared up a little bit. Of course, I tear up at the Olympics, because I am a Sap.

Is it wrong that I kind of want the new DVD edition of Cinderella? And that I also kind of want my old Latin textbooks (but those are too expensive, and would be silly, so I'll wait till I'm older and have my own house).
Also, for those of you who like shiny things, this site offers "free" silver jewelry (it's $5.99 S&H). I've not ordered anything, but people who have say it's nice, though a little on the small side.

Note to Self:
After boarding an airplane, in future, ensure that you return your ID to your wallet, so that when you go to the bank and they ask you for it, you actually can locate it. And just because the Smithsonian is a federal organization doesn't mean your work ID counts as gov't issued ID.

For those of you who've finished Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince, I give you this spolierific link filled with all kinds of yummy theories.

To amuse you, a quick work story. Last Friday (the 22nd) I wore The Best Skirt Evertm to work. Because I am still apparently 6 at heart, I was twirling in it in the kitchen/copy room while I waited for my boss to hit "OK" on a print job that required manual feed (we were printing postcards). Larry, the uberboss of the organization, came in to witness this stunning display of my inner child's glee at having a skirt that twirls. His response? "Oooh, fancy." He's old enough to be my grandfather. I felt like such a dork. Of course, that didn't stop me from doing that over and over again all day, including once in the elevator. Whee!

I just walked about six city blocks carrying a teddy bear on my hip.

I got a Monster update in my e-mail today. I get these because in theory the Monster.com software looks at the gazillion jobs on the site and sorts out the ones from the places and fields I want to work in. This was listed in my e-mail, as a non-profit job.
There is something wrong with this picture. Although, maybe I'd be helping reduce the rate of prostate cancer....
