:::Wait, There's a Snack Zone?:::

Someone on one of the library listervs that I'm on just sent a link out to the video below.

Well done, HBLL.

(where I used to work)

I think it's funny that they're trying to get people to study in the library, bz...well, if you want to know a secret...

some librarians don't actually like people in their libraries

Because people ask stupid questions...

And want to borrow their staplers a million times...

Or talk to them about their crazy conspiracy theories...

Or get sassy with them when they can't find the random thing you're looking for in under 5 seconds and you start giving them lip about Google...


Poor librarians. We should be nicer to them.

:::Can I Turn This Sick Day Back In?:::

Mr. Migraine visited in full force last night. I came home and slept until ten, then ate 2 bowls of cereal and a scoop of mashed potatoes and went back to bed. That's life.

I stayed home today to rest in the quiet darkness. Lucky for me, today is the day the co-op association scheduled to have our front door replaced.






Since 9 am.


BBC America -- Sorry, why am I watching Star Trek? Isn't that an...America show?

Watching Don't Tell the Bride right now. The groom is trying to pick bridesmaid dresses, and has just told the ladies that the color scheme is burgundy.
Bridesmaid: That's like red, yeah? Groom: (Pause)...It's...burgundy.

Also, these people are saying V-A-T, not VAT. Lesson learned.

:::Aloo Gobi:::

OMGoodness, do you have the Cooking Channel? I've found two new favorite shows -- Spice Goddess and Indian Food Made Easy.

Did you know that I love Indian food? If I had to eat just one type of food for the rest of my life, I would choose Indian food without hesitation.

Next I would choose any kind of Middle Eastern food. I grew up with a good number of Middle Eastern friends, and I miss eating their home cooked food. Boo. The only ethnic food hookup I have right now are my three Filipino homies at work. I tell them all the time to bring me food, and they do. Tip: People like people who like their food.

And I really like eggplants. But if you want to sound like a snob or (and?) European, you call them aubergines.
