It's a darned good thing I spent so much of yesterday doing so little, as I don't have brain to spare today and yesterday was all about just getting even a little bit of brain going. I did really enjoy having my brother call me and read me a children's book about going out for dim sum over the phone, though - that just made me laugh and laugh.
Thoughts: booklectic pointed out that a really good poem has been (effectively) banned from the school curriculum here. The comments in the article in the Guardian about this issue are so heinous in their ignorance and raw celebration of the repression of independent thought and insistence that only their view of things is correct that I have created a special new word to celebrate people like this: methane breathers. Why? Because they have their heads so far up their asses I can't imagine how they'd ever get any oxygen. I mean, seriously, who thinks that rap came from Jamaica? It's one thing to be the self-appointed thought police of the 21st century, but these people have made willful ignorance and scurrilous mislabeling of any other view a religion.
