a possible attempt at an entry with Actual Information

I finished the Cryptonomicon by Neal Stephenson, finally. And I'm officially done with him. Period, end of story. The book was two hundred pages long, and not a single one of the 998 pages included a denouement, because Stephenson would rather swing his geek schlong and talk about captain crunch than actually wrap his damn story up. I'm done. No more. Done done done done done. He joins the ranks of Piers Anthony, Anne McCaffery, Raymond Feist and Anne Rice. Never again will their words grace my retina.

I keep getting sucked in by cute skirts. I was in the store today to pick up a pair of jeans, and had to try them on, since they discontinued my favorite jeans, and ended up with Yet Another Cute Skirt. At least it was 40% off, and the shorts that got added to the pile were 50% off; that plus the 15% over all discount made the impulse buy not so bad. I can always rationalize it by saying I'm upgrading my wardrobe to more professional things, now that I don't have to crawl around in closets punching down cables anymore.

If anyone ever offers to make you a Baltimore Zoo, look at them extremely warily, and evaluate how much you trust them. They're delicious, yet more evil than even a Long Island Iced Tea. Don't ask me what was in them, after two of them, I couldn't even tell you how old I was.

I also managed to lose my watch this weekend as well. This is less sad than I thought, because the watch was scratched enough on the outside that a bit of condensation actually made its way into the face. So, thanks to my drunken examination of JW's watch, I was aware that they actually make scratch resistant watches. Since I'm very hard on everything I use (I could be a pager/phone tester if I wanted a second job, I'm sure), this became a necessity for the replacement watch. However, they don't seem to make small faced watches with a scratch resistant face, so now I have a nice watch on my wrist that seems humongous when I lift my wrist to look at the time.

Still not sure what I'm going to do for the 4th of July. Perhaps I'll just go to the choir picnic.

So, when returning my Hugh movies, I got drawn to their buy 2 pre-watched DVDs, get one free sale. So, now I have Moulin Rouge still in its shrink-wrap, Harry Potter and The Gift to watch in the next 21 days to make sure they're okay -- they have a 30 day guarantee. And I can actually watch the MTv version of the Lady marmalade video and find out just who is singing which portion of the harmony.

Okay, I think I'm going to go to bed while the Cubs are a mere 10 runs down.

Mmmm, or maybe not, because now Farnsworth is pitching and he has the finest derriere in baseball, baby.

    Being in the office at 8:30 am means getting up at 5 because I hate traffic and traffic starts at 6:30. Wah. But I did get more Caribou. YOMS.
