Great CD Swap of 2007, Volume 1

Another post about music! At least it's not a dream. Tiff recently announced a CD Swap where the theme was "My Favorite Songs from the Past 10 Years." I assembled my playlist, then found that it was 63 songs long. Sigh. So I had to do some pruning. Here's the final tracklisting of the CD that's going out to Tiff on Monday (hidden in the extension in case she doesn't want to be spoiled):...

Dream

I just had a dream where I woke up in the middle of the night and thought, AWESOME!. So I think that's enough reason to be blogging it in the middle of the night (before I forget too much of it). Unfortunately, a lot of it seems to hinge on being familiar with Huron High School and the works of Christopher Brookmyre. So... my sister might like it. There was a siege at Huron High School. I'm not sure how we knew it was going on, since we didn't see any of the bad guys. I may have been getting...

Thoughts from Detroit Metro Airport

The guy at the check-in desk asked if I was over 18. Sigh. I asked him if my bag was small enough to carry on and he looked at it for a while and judged that I should check it. I shouldn't have asked - it probably would have passed.In my rush to get out of the house this morning, I skipped brushing my teeth, justifying it by telling myself that it would give me something to do while I waited for my flight. Now my toothbrush has been checked and I am The Great Untoothbrushed. Waaaaaah!I am also The...

Holiday Download Extravaganza: E is for Everclear!

Christopher Brookmyre introduced me to this song. "This is gonna sound a little obsessive..." starts Zal in The Sacred Art of Stealing. DI de Xavia recognizes later that he was quoting Everclear. So srah scoured the Internet, discovered the song, found it and held it to her bosom. And her ears, because it turns out that's where she hears. 'Twas a gift from Christopher Brookmyre's heart directly to me, and now I share it with you, dear friends. Wait, that does sound a little obsessive. Everclear - Unemployed Boyfriend...

'All those who didn't indulge in inadvertent cannibalism this evening take a step forward. Max, Toby, not so fast.'

I left work today and checked my cell phone to see if I had any new messages. "INSERT SIM CARD," said my cell phone. I froze with fear*. In the book I've been trying to read for a month now, all of the characters, who are trapped on an island, have the SIM cards in their cell phones removed. Then they get lost in the woods, accidentally eat the chef for dinner and get hunted for sport. I have to assume that when your SIM card is missing, that means you are in for the same. Luckily, turning the phone...

Raymond Ash: my teaching hero

I will be tough and firm on Monday. I will be well-prepared and have chiffres at my disposal, but I will not put up with any crap or abuse or French. I will be rested and ready, calm and in control. I will be Raymond Ash, minus the wetsuit and spear-gun. "Naw, Ger, seriously. I don't care how hard you 'hink you are, or how long you've been suspended. I'm warnin' you: do not, under any circumstances, ever ever fuck wi' the new English teacher." - A Big Boy Did It and Ran Away...
