Overheard at the grocery store

As we were pushing our cart through the aisles of our local giganto-mart this weekend, The Man and I overheard a lady talking on her cell phone...
"Well, I guess she thinks it's ok to sleep with a guy on the first date, but she can't be bothered to pick up the phone to call her sister?"

Nothing to see here...

...except my horribly amateurish attempts at changing the template of my blog!

Still slogging along under the weight of grad school, work, family, and assorted household emergencies.

What? There's another fucking hurricane? And Bush is going to nominate another Supreme Court Justice? I gotta get my nose out of these books more often. My new favorite website is Library Thing!

You can view my --very incomplete-- home library here:

Currently Reading...

Just finished The Sunflower by Simon Weisenthal. If you haven't read this book, READ IT.

Still working on A Double Dying by Alvin Rosenfeld. Addresses the question of how to approach Holocaust literature.

As you can see I am immersed in Holocaust literature. The trivialities will resume when I finish my presentation for class next week. Until then, cuddle with assorted random strangers!

The 2 1/2 minute post

This weekend I learned many important things:

1) People coming out of a mall CANNOT drive. It's like they're in a consumers' coma or something that makes them feel invincible.
2) Cleaning cat vomit out of a vacuum ranks right up there with scrubbing bus station toilets.
3) I loves me some air conditioning! In fact, I may even be so inspired as to create an interpretive dance to share my love and spread A/C worship to all the unwashed, sweaty masses out there...
