list of the day  
I'm grumpy tonight--money issues, annoying cab driver, a persistent unreasonable cough that cut my work-out short and which better not be a chest cold, and really, just moodiness in the shade of blue. I must remember that there were good and interesting and funny things today and other days.
  • that "fug" site
  • Bloody Hell!
  • Jon Stewart's Amazon.com vid promo for America: The Book
  • Friends. Nice people. To flist and be flisted, and I think that "l" is kind of important here, and what I really meant, actually, was my flist and the...flist of me? I don't know, but you know what I mean. You guys out there.
  • Newly (re)discovered music. "The Metre" - Powderfinger, "Hooded Kiss" - Ben Christophers, "The Trouble with Love Is" dance mixes - Kelly Clarkson, "Winter" - K's Choice, "Mamma Mia" - A* Teens, "Whisper to a Scream" - Soho, and Joss Stone and the Holly Cole Trio and Joni Mitchell, and the Barenaked ladies, who I really fear should stay off of the Fox network
  • ginger cookies
  • peanut butter
  • Freecycle.org
  • Alias season 3 on DVD and my couch
  • the word "weasels"
  • mystery writers--Margaret Yorke, Peter Robinson, Ruth Rendell, et al
  • this book review
  • Muriel's Wedding
  • HoYay!
  • TherapyYay!
  • dreams
  • discovering that there are still fandoms to discover, like Odyssey 5
  • a McDonalds cheeseburger and fries when the craving hits like a Mack truck
  • running as fast as I can

Must commune with the couch now.

'Weasels' is a great word.

Thank you for reminding me of Muriel's Wedding -- I love that movie so much.

I love that scene where she's just come from, I think, the hospital with news of her friend, and stops at the wedding dress store and goes in to try one on, and with her whole sob story gets the clerks to take pictures. It's such a complex and amazing scene with layers and layers and ambivalencies; is she hero or utter loser or both, is she triumphant or pathetic? It is incredibly emotional, and in the end, despite the way the movie pushes and pulls at me (resonating too deeply at times), I usually come down on the side of triumphant.

Mystery writers....Do you read James Lee Burke, Elizabeth George, or Thomas Cook. Thomas Cook, especially, is just incredible. I think his Chatham School Mystery or Scandal, or something, was just the most incredible thing. Watch out though, he's depressing. Gahhhhh, he's amazing though.

Someone who is not depressing is, fuuuuuu, I'll get back to you. The protagonist fishes a lot, and he's a lawyer. Does that ring any bells? Aaaarrrrgghhhh, I'm not going to be able to sleep now. Brad something? No. Can't be.

Have you read any Walter Mosley? I went to a book signing Q&A here in Houston a while back, and wow, he's amazing. His Q&A made me realize, my next book talk...I'm sneaking in a tape recorder.

And Julie Smith is funny.

Did you ever read any Ross Thomas? Hee haw, that guy was hooooolarious.

Drat you, Anna -- I went to that Fug site, hop-skip-jumped around, found this photo of David Duchovny, and am now officially Scarred For Life. I need to swipe a handful of your ginger cookies to revive myself...

Seriously, I'm laughing out loud. Thanks; that's an excellent way to start the day.
