Your mission (please choose to accept it!)

So there's this website, creatively titled DressKevin.com, where you can... dress Kevin. He says that he will dress in whatever pieces get the most votes, whether or not they go together. Yesterday Fark.com got wind of the site and managed to make him wear argyle socks to the gym. BORING. I remember the outfit being much worse, so either Fark was outvoted (unthinkable!) or he didn't really wear everything that got the highest votes. There have been pretty bad outfits in the past, but there's so much potential to be worse. Let's all vote together and try to dress Kevin...

The intense creamery situation of the Middle East

I turned on the radio as I left the hospital this morning and the Diane Rehm Show was on. I usually find her spasmodically dysphonic voice too slow and painful to listen to, but I was just using it as background noise and not really paying attention until I heard her say “... given all of this talk above the table of hostility and withholding of monies and, uh, guns and money and butter, are there negotiations going on behind the scenes?" Since I'd just gotten into the car and had missed about half of the discussion, I had no...

Happy posthumous birthday to the Joe Dassin, U-M graduate and French-singing American musician who died 6 days before I was born. I don't know what the turnaround time is on souls, but I suppose it's possible that I am his reincarnation. I'm not sure if I've moved up or down the karmic ladder, though - I seem to have traded my singing ability in for not being addicted to drugs. Anyway, w00t to Joe for being born today.

I am not an expert in the domain of computers or pants, but it seems to me that these are two things that you do not want to combine. Suppose you sit in something wet and short-circuit yourself!

A recently-discovered blog I like:

A recently-discovered blog I like: little.red.boat. Anna quotes this poem: The reason I like Edna St Vincent Millay Is that her name sounds like a basketball falling down stairs. The reason I like Walt Whitman Is that his name sounds like Edna St Vincent Millay falling down stairs. *tee hee!*...

FoxTrot has been very frighteningly true-to-life this week. I suspect that Bill Amend follows me and Alex around with a tape recorder, because Jason and Eileen ARE Alex and Srah. Veddy veddy suspicious....

Finally finished my paper

Finally finished my paper at 3am. Yuck! I don't think it was very good, but I hope it made some sort of sense and perhaps vaguely resembled what Dr Wyss wanted from it. Crashed on the couch while it was printing and had a dream where Roommate and Rob were going to the Cake concert together, except it was Rob who was my roommate. There was a lot of other extremely strange stuff going on, but I lost it all in the process of waking up. I feel so free now that those papers are done. Mwah ha. That would...

Roommate and I

Roommate and I (after an exhaustive search of the Michigan Sex Offender's list by zip code - looking for familiar names - and a trip to the FBI's Most Wanted page), decided we need to find nice cushy government jobs. Or not-so-cushy ones. So she's going to get a non-gun job for the FBI and I'm going to work for the CIA. It's frightening how appropriate the CIA's language positions sound for me. They're looking for language people. But I have two questions the Employment FAQ doesn't answer... Will I be able to tell anyone what I do, and will...
