One of the things that makes Megnut difficult hard is that I know who reads it – and that kills the anonymity sometimes.
I should be working but some friends came into town and have reduced my productivity to 0. I blame Matt. This means I'm leaving the office to hit the streets, enjoy the weather, and most likely, spend some money I don't have.
I'm kind of hungover, more tired actually, and I've got the giggles. Worse than earlier this week. This week has been one of my silliest weeks in a while. Anyway, pb's report rant made me laugh and laugh and laugh. Till tears came out of my eyes. I don't really know why. It's just that kind of day.
While driving with Sailu to get supplies for our Halloween costumes, a woman cut us off, and I gave her The Finger. And then I realized, I don't ever give anyone The Finger! In fact, I can't remember doing it before, at least since I've been "grown-up." I think I'm going to start giving The Finger more.
Blue Angels jet crashes. Wow, it was only a few weeks ago that I saw their show from a rooftop on Lombard Street.
I hate it when things don't move as fast as I want them to.
No books. I feel like an e-commerce sucka. 😦
I've ordered a lot of books from Amazon over the past…well…long time and never experienced a problem. Until now. I received an email on Monday October 18 saying my order had been shipped. Hasn't arrived yet. I sent an email yesterday morning, haven't heard anything back. Is it possible that all this time Amazon was getting us hooked in, and now they've switched the whole thing to some giant internet book scam? Nah…I'm going to go upstairs and see if maybe my books were delivered this afternoon. Wish me luck!
I started reading Home From Nowhere awhile ago and put it down for some reason. I grabbed it this morning as I headed out the door and was again awash with thoughts. James Kunstler provides a great articulation of what's wrong with current urban and suburban development practices, how they weaken our society, and how to improve them.
Why isn't there more client-side form validation on the web? It's so irritating to have to go back and fill something in, especially when they don't point out where you failed to provide the required information!
