I had a haiku I wrote read on the radio, it was a comedy show, and I was pandering.

The theme "Riot Grrrrllll"

:cough:

I am not a cougar.
I am not a riot girl, either.
I just like Goodwill.

I located instructions and successfully changed the favicon on Blogger, and learned the word favicon. It's a stupid word, but prolly better than my previous "The little icon thingie when you bookmark a site"

I got through the work week without doing bodily harm to anyone.

One day closer to retirement. If I can avoid becoming a murderer until then I'll be home free.

Office painting and the hanging of the light accomplished:







A soothing, crisp grey and brilliant white. Outlets will be exchanged for white after the floor is installed (you're looking at the subfloor in the pictures). I'm putting in the floor myself, out of finished birch plywood over felt paper. Then several coats of polyurethane. It's petty, but I am much pleased at the progress.

That is not petty! That was hard work and you should be proud of it. Take it from a lazy-bones: Doing your own work is a big deal.

Here's what petty looks like: I finally figured out how to set that spiffy new alarm clock I bought from SkyMall that displays the time on the wall. The instructions were less than helpful so ... Yay for me!

On the upsde it does give me a lot of uninterrupted studying time. If you call caravans and tents being put up and down, children playing, cars coming and going uninterrupted.
What kind of uni requirement makes you live in a tent in the outback surrounded by gypsy caravans and without shiny things?

Rocksie and I drove 963 miles in one day yesterday, from Flagstaff home. That beats my previous single day driving by about 58 miles.

A patron came in with a list of words she wanted antonyms for. She said she had called before and a librarian had given her some of them over the phone. I did not say, "Then why don't you have them written down?"

Sorry only just seen this. I'm injecting Clexane - the same type of thing though. I have to do it daily at the moment. I was surprised how much it didn't hurt and think it helps to do it yourself. When the nurses were doing it in the hospital, it definitely felt a little painful. Also, I have a fair bit of belleh fat to grab.

Earlier this year I posted a blog entry about the sculptor Rembrandt Bugatti, the gifted but deeply troubled brother of the car maker. I stumbled on his work randomly and a feverish research obsession weekend later, I wrote about his tragically short life and immense artistic accomplishments.

Now "Bugatti Royale" (the sine qua non of car collectors which has a replica of Rembrandt's sculpture of an elephant rampant as a hood ornament ) turns out to be consistently in the top 3 of search terms used to find my blog and the entry on Rembrandt is consistently in the top 10 of viewed posts. It makes me inordinately happy that people who were looking up the car discover this amazing artist in the process.

Spent a couple of days conducting business in Cantonese, with Chinese people and over an authentic Chinese meal. I never felt so thoroughly Chinese before and couldn't help but think how happy my parents would be to see me.

I carried my lump of a daughter for some 30 feet from The Tank to the door of the hospital. I had to put her down because a bigger lump of a hospital employee that was outside on a smoke break wouldn't even open a door or go get a wheelchair or anything.

Yesterday's entry about King Henry IV's head was my 1000th blog entry. I'm really quite shocked. I never imagined I'd reach such a number, especially since I abandoned it for a year and a half after false start. :stunned:

I had first post in it too.

To mark this momentous occasion, I challenge you to use the word 'ophidian' in your next entry. If that's too hard, 'batrachian' is acceptable as well.

Ophidian would be way easier than batrachian.

"Caesar Augustus, in a move redolent of an ophidian, doth cleaved Darius' head in twain."*

*Actual event may or may not have occurred. I'm not the one with a thousand post History blog. Congrats liv.
