One kind is YouTube videos of cats doing cute things. This is the other kind.

Al -- haven't heard from you in ages! Was it only yesterday we had our 30th high school reunion! And now it's time for the 40th. I'm having a party for just our circle - it'll be at my fabulous multi-million dollar mansion overlooking the Pacific. What have you been up to? My dashing husband Lars and I have been taking time off from our 7-figure-income jobs to charter-jet around Europe attending opera and such. No real news. I'm so looking forward to seeing you again and catching up!


Uh, me? Well, I was fired from my job and spent two and a half years in a depressive spiral before getting a new job at 1/3 my old income; I spend all day calling up insurance companies to find out how they cover goo getting injected in your knees; my boyfriend dumped me, my cat died and I had a hernia operation. Then there's the cyst on my eyelid
it shouldn't bum me out but it did. I didn't cheer up again until I found out that "Bringing Home a Baby Bumblebee" was the state song of Arkansas until 1963, when they realized it made them look like hicks. It makes me happy to know that.

  • I was going to take a picture of Dave the Angry Flower, but he walked away from his booth to get a Mrs. Fields cookie.
  • On the convention floor, a woman stopped me and asked if I'd be willing to trade my chum bag for hers. Mine had the new Dr. Who on it. "if you have a bag with Jaime or Adam from Mythbusters," I replied, "I would trade for that." "I'll take that deal!" a man yelled out from a few feet off. I traded bags with him and wished the woman luck.
  • Some nutjob at the Marriott is forming little homunculi from foam, infusing them with helium, and sending the things floating off into the clouds. How many endangered species will die from this I can't say.
  • In my country, Sharon is a perfectly normal name for a man. Stop looking at my badge.

albadger: (What Badgers Eat)


Anyway, I took this picture earlier today because it combines two of my favorite things in the entire world:

  1. Microwave entrees that after you eat them you still have a neat resuable dish, and
  2. Sorting small multi-colored candies by color and then eating them according to specific rules.
My other favorite things include the real killer breaking down and confessing on the witness stand, but this does not come into play here.

It was in Asheville, North Carolina due to the illegible scrawl of the SFO gate agent. They knew it was mine because it's a two-tone green sports bag/duffle with the movie titles Knocked Up, Evan Almighty and I Now Pronounce You Chuck and Larry embroidered on it. There are two lessons to be learned here:
  1. Make sure your bag is visually distinctive in a way that no person with sense or taste would endure, and
  2. Don't ever fly Delta.

Last post (using ljapp on iPhone while riding the Amtrak bus through St. Petersburg) junked out, leaving just the title, after I'd written scads. Gist is, despite Delta's efforts, I have what I need, all my electronics, my tickets, origami paper, stamps, and the cool book that [livejournal.com profile] bestbear_icanbe gave me about Confidential magazine in the 1950s. I like the way that the sleazy scandal mag staff included some big names from the McCarthy/HUAC anti-communist witch hunt movement. Seems appropriate.

I'm at the Tampa train station now, which like a lit if "historic" buildings in Florida is rather drab. I hope to post a review of last night's opera soon, but only if I get the laptop on wifi; I'm not doing music criticism on the iPhone. It tries to fix my Italian.
