Well, I haven't really been blogging things lately, have I. Fie.

Since Feb 1st I've:

- made sergeant hopefully the next rank by next week. attuned to the core, too, might even go in. also hope to get the warlock to level 55 i.e. endgame instance range.

- had some awesome crab legs with tzel at capn jerry's. a good night.

- jesus, i didn't even blog the aftermath of the plumber and the tub and missing the chili cook off in philly only to get turned away from the odd girl out concert at the charm city kitty club due to sold outness. then getting to go to m&a's and have a good time anyways.

- didn't finish ulysses in time for book club

- went to book club, voted in Homage to Catalonia by orwell

- celebrated tracy's birthday with the karaoke video game, sang some cher

- had a women's prison literacy meeting

- went to a super bowl party, couldn't figure out who to root for, ate boneless wings and cheese curls

- had a disastrous hair appointment that was supposed to be big fun. long story short, very expensive color is all wrong, and made an unusual move to assert myself, call back and ask them to do something about it. we'll see on tuesday. terrified i am making an even bigger mistake. at the very least i'm not paying any more. this was me christmas gift from my mom. :( oops long story not so short.

- watched the last two discs of freaks and geeks. i don't like owning DVDs much but this is one i simply MUST have. you should watch it, every one of you!

home sick today. using the time to tidy up loose ends. like polishing off Making History by stephen fry. it was excellent. cm may want to note this one's in the "what if WWii went another way" genre.

p.s. stop buying stuff you cannot afford! funny. steve martin.

I am curious about the prison literacy meeting. What is that all about?

Also, I'm interested to see how the hair redux will work out. It's so frustrating to be so excited about something that should be great to have it turn out sucky. Wow, that was profound, eh?

We have a organization we started last year initially to send books to prisons based on prisoner requests (we get the books through donations and try to match them up as best we can) and ultimately we want to get more involved through advocacy and other things. I know there are many others around the country including Texas, Philly and DC, but I don't know about your area... we need volunteers to help pack books and send them soon, but I think that's a bit of a hike.

Trust me, I was pretty much in tears after the hair thing, despite the fact that it is, after all, just hair. I likened it to getting a new bike for christmas and then having it break the first time you try to ride it.

I waited all year for this!

But my real point: my parents are taking a trip to Vegas and I told mom you were the expert, although she probably won't call you maybe you have books or something. :)

Vegas?! How exciting. My tips are to see Mystere and Lance Burton or Penn and Teller ... those are all good shows. The food is always overpriced, but I generally only eat one big meal a day and snack the rest of the time. It's ridiculously dry there so pack eye drops and lotion. And tell your mom to go out and buy herself clothes she would normally never wear. :) Vegas is the place to wear them. I have a separate "Vegas shelf" in my closet.

I gamble a lot there, but it's not necessary to have a good time. I think they should enjoy it. If they're looking for specific restaurant recommendations or shopping places, I can give those as well. How long are they going for?

I absolutely loved "O". I like the water, and that one (of the Cirque shows I've seen) is the most fun to me. I also want to see La Reve, but haven't yet. Being in LA, I'm getting in a few Vegas weekends a year, which has turned out to be neat. Depending on the people, Blue Man Group (which has just moved hotels) is fun, as is Mamma Mia.

Even if her parents don't gamble, walking the casinos is fun. There's a lot of gorgeous architecture and fun things to see.

Food is BIG, I definitely agree there! The buffets are very high quality food (for a buffet) which makes you want to get in a taste of everything you can. Although I think that the next time I go I'll just spend the money to avoid the buffets and eat at the "normal" places because that will help me stick to a more reasonable food intake...

I'm not sure? Maybe just a long weekend? They're meeting my uncle out there, so he might keep them occupied... and they plan to drive out of Vegas and see the stuff outside of it, they say. I will relay this info! Thanks!

I've been surprisingly devoted to levelling my Hordie on Hyjal. Today is just over three weeks since I started him and he's going to ding 36 on my lunch hour. Still a druid, but I'm having tons of fun. The goal is to get him to instance range ASAP to join up with a friend on that server. That, and I'll be able to PVP with him since horde never has to wait in line. :)

Sounds interesting. I love alternate history stuff so I might have to check it out!

I'd love to, but I'd be very intimidated!! You're like, a real musician and I've had like... 6 or 7 lessons. :o
Also you'd have to come to my house... unless you have a drum kit at home which for all I know you do!

It's a chicken nugget in sauce. I'd like to be elitist and say that it's disgusting, but it's exactly as fine as it sounds. I was happy to eat them.

I have to confess when I heard boneless wings I was hoping for non-processed meat. Which is stupid, isn't it?

Jet and I watched freaks and geeks in its entirety. Every seasons' DVDs were at the Eugene library. It is so funny. All those actors are getting big parts these days, coincidentally.

I still can't stop singing Styx. I suppose it's easy to guess who my favorite character was.
