Has this been a perfectly glorious week for anyone?

Yeah, I didn't think so.

This made me smile though because the finish line is just around the bend.

Two of my long-standing favorite bands are releasing albums tomorrow that include songs of Love & Peace which I desperately need before I snap this week in particular.

Either you all don't know about this limited time offer or not sharing like you're supposed to:

Cannot wait for tomorrow. The status is not quo.

I know I can get wrapped up in librarian land pretty easily, but do you know what a national security letter is and why I am extraordinarily pissed off by them?

If not, please take the time to read this. This is our post-9/11 America; an estimated 50,000 of these each year without due process of the law.

I saw Brewster Kahle last year and was quite inspired by his vision for the future, but am even more impressed that he was able to not only fight this but have the federal shushing-gag order on the letter lifted as well. Rock on!

Twitter = synchronous or asynch IRC on crack.

That's all.
twilight33: (nausea)
I'm still pissed off this happened in the first place.

Oh, my dear young writer, didn't anyone tell you that Live Journal is actually where the Living Dead of the writing world are created?

This morning's breakfast was quite an interesting event.

Kieran: Ooh! Can I do my homework early for today?

(They have weekly assignment sheets, he saw that tonight's was about math including identifying the higher number in different sets.)

Me: Um, sure, as long as you finish your breakfast first.

Kieran: Ok!

Some time passes, and I notice Kieran's *really* studying his United States placemat as he eats.

Me: What are you looking at, sweetheart?

Kieran: Look at these tornadoes! (old crayon scribbles)

Me: That's some creative thinking!

Kieran: No, these are REAL tornadoes.

Me: Ok, we can say that they're real on your map.

Kieran: They start in Western Canada, then go to Maine, New Hampshire and Vermont. There are some in New York, Massachusetts, Rhode Island & Connecticut too. There's one in Pennsylvania, but not in New Jersey. Oh wait, there's one in New Jersey. I think there's one.. yeah in Maryland, and 1 in Virginia too. Oh yeah, North Carolina too. There aren't ANY tornadoes in South Carolina, Georgia or Florida though.

Us: *uh*

I hope you have a great day !

My kindergartener is already taller than many of the first grade class students who are in the school library as I'm volunteering but he's currently on another growth spurt.

In the past these have always been noticeable by his mood (very contentious) and ribcage becoming more prominent but yesterday we had a rather interesting new sign.

He asked the yard duty lady to take him to the school cafeteria for breakfast as soon as he got off the school bus, not because we had forgotten to feed him but because he wanted a second one! He still ate all his lunch, an after-school snack, and about twice as much as he normally eats for dinner too.

Today I offered him a snack as soon as he woke up, breakfast, another snack after breakfast, and packed an extra sandwich in his lunch.

All was devoured but thankfully he didn't ask for another breakfast at school.

I wonder if we'll send him off to school with what would be a week's worth of food for me when he's a teenager.

We watched Lise de la Salle in concert on Wednesday night complete with wine & hors d'oeuvres afterward, and this morning I immediately scoffed at the Times' review mentioning her encore of "Rachmaninoff". What kind of 'music critic' do they have on staff?!

In a rather major French faux pas, she was wearing the same outfit in this video that evening. The skirt was floor length with many folds of fabric and absolutely stunning, as were the Schumann Etudes. What I do not understand is how someone can play an intense recital for almost two hours with those cuffs, especially Rachmaninov for an encore...

Ah, l'amour. This & dinner out was our early celebration; de la Salle is releasing a new CD on our actual anniversary next week & I preordered that along with a highly acclaimed one released on my birthday a few years back. Kieran came back from my mom's house yesterday after being gone since Monday, I took today off work, and we've all enjoyed the week of sunshine and kicking back a bit more than usual.

There are days when it's hard enough for me to keep a straight face about the fact that there is a rather respectable and prominent Doody, but when the CDC issued this update for pool staff all I could think of was a Baby Ruth...

Edit: Because I had to.
