happy friday!

It's quiet and the bosses are away so it's time for an entry. One of my famous list entries.

(in no particular order)

  • I'm walking 12 miles tomorrow! I might have chocolate cake afterwards. Even if it is only 11am. I vow not to talk politics with my friend who's walking with me tomorrow. Not worth risking the friendship.


  • I can't imagine what John Edwards' family is going through right now.

  • I can't wait until The Rose and the Briar: Death, Love and Liberty in the American Ballad comes in to the library. It has essays from Paul Muldoon, Stanley Crouch, R. Crumb, Jon Langford of the Mekons, John Rockwell, Luc Sante, Joyce Carol Oates, Dave Marsh and Sarah Vowell.

  • Only two more weeks until the Bill Mallonee concert here in Chicago! he he

  • History Lessons for the Next Term. The best essay I've seen on what a Christian should be doing after the election.

    You cannot borrow a hammer at my library.

    i love maureen's hair

    Maureen Dowd
    You are Maureen Dowd! You like to give people silly
    nicknames and write in really short, non
    sequitur paragraphs. You're the most playful of
    the columnists and a rock-ribbed liberal, but
    are often accused of being too flamboyant and
    frivolous. You tend to focus on style over
    substance, personality over politics. But your
    heart is in the right place. Plus, you are a
    total fox.
