THERE IS A [ profile] ontd_startrek

Oh man, I find this hilarious that people are getting into Star Trek for real, 40 years later.

In the reverse way, I am just digging huge on Eleanor Rigsby the Beatles song. The internet ( I say that at least once a day now)

Also, I have finally caved and bought my professional website. Nothing on it yet, duh, but I think I'm just going to do a WP installation. I really need to get my internet shit together and manage it right now, so I can do everything else at school. I'm carrying on as usual here, I mean, where else am I gonna be able to post things like THIS:

Man, you know when your boyfriend is trying to kill you with cute, when he shows up at your front door, soaking from taking his daily run (3 miles, not much, he says) in the rain, bearing flowers in order to thank you for helping him move in yesterday.

Either that, or its a really good ploy to avoid me reminding him he owes me money for buying everybody lunch.

Many many moons ago, I put up a post wondering where I could get downloads, of any legality of The Middleman episodes. What's that you say? You don't know this "middleman" show? You haven't seen it? AH WELL, THAT IS ALL ABOUT TO CHANGE.

And with the great help of [ profile] delgaserasca and a hilarious battle with iTunes and a time-limited clipping program later, I had all the elements to make the ideal Middleman vid. It would be awesome. It would be for great justice. It would encapsulate my joy about the series and also wag it's tongue about all the stuff that they let on ABC Family.

And then the files sat on my hard drive for 3 months.

But no more! The vid of great justice is here, and happily, it is as close to the platonic ideal as I conceived of it. I still hate iMovie, but I'm not dropping $70 to upgrade versions. If you have watched MM, you will (hopefully) love this. If you have not, you might still enjoy it, and if I've done my job correctly, you will go to your nearest internet source and seek out this show.

Woo. (Bonus points for figuring out what scene idea I started with.)

It looks all innocent, but then you realize those blades haven't been sharpened since 1996. Worst. grass. cutting device ever.

Lawn is now my mortal enemy. Check that, stupid non-gas push mower where there are dull blades is my mortal enemy. As is the variety of weeds growing back there. Also, left my phone charger at boyfriend's apartment, and he and roommate are gone all weekend.

But it's a beautiful day, so whatever. Too beautiful to care about such things.

It's kind of hard to explain exactly how much my heart is exploding with feeling loved/contenment of a sort. I'd like to bottle it to remember when I purposely turn my life upside down in a few months, and the times are hard and a little more lonely.

Am so tired that I had to push myself to not fall down in the street walking back from the Metro. And this was after a significant cappuccino purchase at Open City (oh god, such good brunch)

Last night was low-key but nice, including the Michigan-ers teaching me eucre and playing darts at the most sketchy place in Cleveland Park (which is not sketchy at all).

I am ignoring the fact that I very soon have to make (one of) the most important decision of my life.

A Sound Adventure with Fiona and Taylor

Today, Fiona and I messed with public installation art on our lunch hour. We thought it had music logic ("look, there's 16 poles! with fifths! ... That means something.") But after googling we realized it didn't. Which made us very sad.

oh noes

I come home, sit down at my computer and the following occurs:

1. It sounds like something is tap dancing in my bathroom.
2. I consider the far off possiblity that there is an intruder in my bathroom, and for some reason, they are tap dancing
3. Laugh at self; tap dancing continues
4. Take huge bottle of body lotion with me to bathroom as defense.
5. Find nothing in bathroom, but sound continues, obviously from the ceiling.

There are two problems with this
1. Either the house we share a wall with has a very very strange layout and their upstairs baby room is somewhere right above my bathroom OR
2. There is a critter in our attic.

Because I am failing at typing up my notes from today's conference session (ooh, best practices, excit....zzzzz)

1. Denver has not made me dizzy, but constantly thirsty/body dehydration feeing. People from both coasts agree that this is happening to them as well.
2. I'd like to come back and see the city proper, because I'm not able to get lost too much and well, I ate dinner at where ever was most convenient. Did see the big blue bear as I walked by the Convention Center, and thought about how moving all the DC foot traffic to Denver for the DNC must have really thrown them off. Nobody really walks around here, that I can tell (or I should say, foot traffic in downtown, downtown at 5:30pm is significantly less than DC.
3. Mckay of Journalism's blog facilitated Paul Krugman and Larry Summers getting into an econo-fight, and then got linked in The Economist *sniff* It's like his first Drudge hit, all over again.
