Dear man who was reading a paper,
The reading the paper thing was not the issue. The issue is that you insisted on having the paper rest on my hair. (I was sitting, he was standing nearby.) After the third time of me feeling something in my hair and checking, I turned around and you smiled guiltily at me and then put your paper away.
Dear man who got in the spot left by the idiot paper reading man,
Why did you feel the need to also rustle your paper against my hair? WTF is it with you people today?
Also, not moving out of the doorway when people are trying to exit the train AND leaving your briefcase on the floor for us to trip on? Very annoying. VERY.
Ok, maybe not a cheeseburger. Not today, at least.
But a tasty salad. A bowl of gazpacho (I should make some soon!). And free, tasty ice cream (from the management company of our building at work).
Plus we're going to see Harry Potter tonight (my second viewing).
I have a full, but good weekend ahead. Hope life is treating you well.
Janet's fill in da blanks...
1. Frozen Cokes (or Coke Slurpees) make me remember my childhood.
2. I like to use tasty seasonings when I cook.
3. Spoilers when I'm not expecting them really piss me off.
4. I've been thinking about all of the neat people I'll be seeing this weekend lately.
5. The last song I heard that I liked was Big Wheel by Tori Amos.
6. Dancing by starlight.
7. And as for the weekend, tonight I'm looking forward to a home-cooked dinner with lots of friends, tomorrow my plans include a quick trip to the mall and Sunday, I want to sleep in, but I have a full day (that I'm looking forward to) planned!
So, right. I couldn't find where he was blogging because it seemed like he wasn't blogging enough. The answer became clear today! Twitter.
You can find me there now too. I'm not sure what I'll do with it, other than keep up with some people who aren't blogging in the more standard sense of the word, but feel free to friend me there.
NSPy's diabetes does seem to be in remission so no more insulin for him for now. We go back in ~4 weeks to get more blood work done and find out if this is the right plan (we'll be monitoring him to make sure that he doesn't get any of the old symptoms back again). Also, we're not going to treat his mites right now. The options are either a) not really likely to help or b) expensive and no known end date. If he scratches too much, then we'll try option a.
Bed time. I have a dentist appt at 6:45 tomorrow morning. :p
PS: Still hooooorribly behind in email.
The rafting was fun. The whole weekend was pretty damn good. We even rode a class 5.1 rapid. And no one fell out (accidentally; some of the guys jumped out on purpose). I'm glad I went.
We also went hiking in the rain. It was a drizzle when we started, but by the time we got back to the van, it was full blown rain. That was also fun once we put the more serious bug spray on and stopped providing the mosquitoes with such ample feasting grounds.
We swapped cars around a bit on the drive home. ifuonlyknew and coorr took my car. Chris and Chris took coorr's car. majes and I went in his car with his son and his bro. We had the most driving/car time ahead of us - we left the cabin at noon and didn't get to Malden until 10 pm. At which point, I got my car keys and headed back to Woburn.
I unpacked my stuff under the watchful eye of NSPy. Was startled by a sudden roommate (sudden in appearance, not in roommmateness). Plugged in my poor, dead phone. Showered (had to wash the bug spray off before getting into my bed with its very clean sheets) and then passed out until 9 am.
Now I need to get some coffee and finish going through email. I work from 1-5, but from home. Whew.
Anyway, Maine is lovely. The cabins were nice (not enough hot water). The rafting was fun. The hiking was enjoyable, if damp. The drive was loooooong. But I'd do it all again.
Reminder notes to self: wear better socks for hiking so you don't get blisters; bring 2 bathing suits so you don't have to raft in a damp one if you go in a jacuzzi the night before; bring dry clothes to leave on the bus for the 1/2 point of the rafting trip; don't feed the mosquitoes.
Holy crap. That's a long time to keep something as seemingly random as blogging up. I'm glad I've stuck with it though. I've met some wonderful people, both in person and online. I met my roommate even!

Update: Online Radio Is Saved; SoundExchange Will Not Enforce New Royalty Rates on Sunday! (link from keyne on LJ)
From a mailing list I'm on...
IMMEDIATE ACTION NEEDED FOR THURSDAY, JULY 12TH
Time and options are running out for Internet Radio. Late this afternoon, the court DENIED the emergency stay sought on behalf of webcasters, millions of listeners and the artists and music they support.
UNLESS CONGRESS ACTS BY JULY 15th, the new ruinous royalty rates will be going into effect on Sunday, threatening the future of all internet radio.
We are appealing to the millions of Internet radio listeners out there, the webcasters they support and the artists and labels we treasure to rise up and make your voices heard again before this vibrant medium is silenced. Even if you have already called, we need you to call again.
The situation is grave, but that makes the message all the simpler and more serious.
PLEASE CALL YOUR SENATORS AND REPRESENTATIVES RIGHT AWAY and urge them to support the Internet Equality Act. Go to http://www.capwiz.com/saveinternetradio/alert_9738601.html to find the phone numbers of your Senators and Representative.
If they've already co-sponsored, thank them and tell them to fight to bring the bill to the floor for an immediate vote. If the line is busy, please call back. Call until you know your voice has been heard.
Your voices are what have gotten us this far - Congress has listened. Now, they are our only hope. We are outmatched by lobbying power and money but we are NOT outmatched by facts and passion and the power of our voices.

So she went withSpanning Sync. With it, she can make updates on her Treo or computer or G'cal and sync all of 'em. It's easiest to sync changes made in G'cal or her computer (iCal) because the sync program that talks to iCal only lets you pick one category into which you can import your Palm entries.
Anyway, much love to all of you helpful people who replied! Thank you for all of the info!
