I am super jumpy. Didn’t run today—day off—and it was rainy and gray all day.
So I graded finals and portfolios.
And ate four Krispy Kreme doughnuts today.
These things may be related.
Queens of the Stone Age, ‘Song for the Dead’
Probably my favorite tune off ‘Songs for the Dead,’ which is really saying something.
Mark Lenegan is amazing.
QotSA, ‘Millionaire’ Live from the Basement.
Because I’m ready for new QotSA but refuse to listen to the leaks, official or otherwise.
I want the whole album all at once, officially.
Because I’m an idiot.
This is nice. But seems much more militaristic than Beethoven.
Rossini, ‘Overture,’ La Gazza Ladra
Done with today’s grading.
Let’s go invade Poland.
Weekends without work—what’s that like?
It’s pouring here, and I have to work, so it’s not so bad, but we skipped out on a family event because family, and I really want to drink bourbon and watch the rain.
Also, “Gatsby” sucks. They changed the very first line of the novel! Not like it’s famous or anything.
And they cut Daisy’s line about the longest day of the year and didn’t give us the clear sense that she steers back into Myrtle.
Joel Edgerton is fantastic as Tom, I will say that.
2nd Movement, the 9th Symphony.
Portfolios are going swimmingly.
allisonunsupervised asked: Maybe I missed it-- did you find a bike? Still looking?
I have a couple of leads, but still looking.
I really want to find a new way to injure myself, so I figure ass over teakettle on a bike would really do the trick.
I’m grading portfolios, drinking coffee, and listening to Beethoven.
As one does.
Also, taking questions: What’s the Rumpus?
I guess this is supposed to be funny?
Combined for 8.28 miles in 93 minutes, but it’s strange that going up and around my loop clockwise is waaaay easier than widdershins. How can that be? I guess it has to do with slope and grade and placement of the climbs, but it still doesn’t make sense to my walnut sized intellect.
@Jack: only auto parts came up.
