Sea dragon

Post-OMEN

I wrote a long thing about the fall of American theater on my other blog, if you're interested, but I don't want to cross-post it. Those who know about the other blog will know where to go to read it, the rest will be saved the trauma of a rant I spent an hour composing.

I realized last night that I'm feeling overbooked. Last night was Bald Faced Lie's live rendition of The Omen, tonight is flamenco class (with 9 PM slotted for "feeling like a failure"), tomorrow is Mah Jong, and I think Thursday I'm going to have to find time to see Beau Travail at the Grand Illusion. Friday we're going to see Parrot Fever ... and I wonder why there are dishes piled up to here in the sink and although I have, um, piles of clean clothes I don't seem to have any clean socks? I'm talking about having people over Saturday evening for a sangria party, but maybe what I really need is to just sit home and clean, clean, clean, and work on making the house a little less of a shit hole. Or I could just clean the living room, make up a big batch of sangria, and see if I care any more after I've had two or three glasses. Hmm ...

Now I'm going to eat Worthy Opponent's cinnamon roll from the Cottage House bakery in Long Beach. Yum!

I'm a slug

Great NYT article about alternative carpooling strategies: http://www.nytimes.com/2003/04/29/national/29COMM.html?8hpib. I can't believe Seattle didn't originate a mode of transportation called "slugging!"

I haven't done a lick of work all day, all I've done is talk to mortgage brokers. And I'm planning on leaving at 4:30 to talk to someone about working on the house. Good thing there's not much going on here today: we haven't been able to set up the servers to do the caching testing I'm supposed to be doing, and someone hasn't checked in some important code, so it's pretty much a low-pri spinning the wheels kind of day anyway.
