Or, not zoom, as the case may be.

I'm trying a new sleep regimen in an attempt to normalize my sleep patterns (based on the book Sleep to be Sexy, Smart and Slim). It seems to be working, but leaves little time for things like obsessively snarking at the RDR/SVA wank in its myriad forums being on the internets.

I think I'll make a separate post about how I'm working this plan, since it's actually working for me, a life-long insomniac.

There is MAJOR work drama going on which is mostly all my fault, and may result in my firing. I need to learn to stand down, for real.

I have been looking at the flist, and loving the commentary on the whole RDR/SVA trial. OMG pie chart of d99m. I do get a vague creepiness at the idea that SVA might be getting off on this whole thing, on the virtue of being in the same room with JKR. Eew. My snark-fu fails me on that one, gross.

Today is the Spring Game, which I haven't gone to for years, and yep, it's supposed to rain. We'll see. :P

Tomorrow is the Dam Fool 4 Miler, which I'm running with my sister. I'm a runner, who knew?

Hugs to you all, and especially to:

I just went to the Circle K for some pop.

I hear a younger black girl (you know, sassy) ask a middle-aged black guy, "where do they sell Michigan stuff around here?"

"They sell it everywhere, honey," he answered.

"Oh good," she said, "because I'm looking for some baby wipes for my newborn."

OH HOLY GOD did we ALL crack up. The middle-aged guy was right along with us. The guy in front of me was practically crying with laughter.

The middle-aged guy said he hoped to see her again, and she told him they'd definitely see each other after the 17th so she could tell him about it again.

That made my night, right there.

I finally had a nice, boring weekend! 

On Saturday )

I am so SMRT )

NOW, A QUESTION:  Anyone interested in going to the Buckeye Hall of Fame Cafe and hanging out on Friday, May 25?  It used to be a standing date in the past, but life and other things kind of got in the way...do the end of happy hour in the back bar area, have dinner, you know the drill.  Kids welcome, drinking optional, come and leave whenever, all that.  Let me know!

I did something today that I haven't done for five years...I went running.  Sorta.

Did 2.5 turns around Ohio Stadium, jogging along the big planters just outside the gates.  Let me tell you, I am freaking out of shape for running and the muscles I normally use for biking are not happy being stretched another way.

But, wow, did it feel good (once the burning wore off)!  Rar!  :-)

It's almost swimming season, too...maybe I need to take up triathalon-style cross-training.  I bought a new swimsuit in Vegas last summer, so we'll see.

The OOTP trailer...exciting, no?  Can't wait for July.

I had so much FUUUUUUUNNNN today. Fun has been sorely lacking in my life of late. And FUUUUUUUUNNNN non-existent.

Today was the Thurber House honors for their Best American Humor 2005 award winner, the writers of America (the Book) - Jon Stewart, Ben Karlin, and David Javerbaum. I went to their reading, which was funny and excellent.

Jon is more off-the-cuff than I expected. Each of them read a piece from the book, and Jon did a segment with Professor Stanley K. Schultz, who contributed entries for the Teacher's Edition of the book.

I asked a couple of questions (for which Jon made fun of my verbosity): To Ben and DJ about The Colbert Report and whether they were surprised at how successful it has become (they are, and happy about it - Ben said Stephen was leaving TDS anyway???)

For Jon, I mentioned the article and asked him what he thought of his critics' opinions that his fan base gets all of their news from a fake news show. He said that he doesn't think that's true at all - if the people watching didn't follow any other news, the show would be like Charlie Brown's teacher talking - and that he (Jon) isn't a megalomaniac.

My faith in watching TDS has been affirmed - they really do GET IT. :) Ben Karlin is so cute, I love him.

Then, the OSU kick-off event )

I'm considering taking off work on Thursday to go and see Sacha Baron Cohen, who's going to be here as Borat. Or not.

From my other blog: Stephanie Hummer's Probable Killer Found Via DNA Evidence

It's been a good week in the criminal justice system - sometimes things work just the way they're supposed to.

Justin Zwick, I'm sorry I said anything disparaging toward you.  I refuse, however, to admit that you, yourself, rock.

Go OSU defense!  And The Nuge!

I am taking the announcement about HBP with a grain of salt.  [livejournal.com profile] teshara has said it best, however.

In other news, fandom is wanky.  /Captain Obvious

And in other, other news, we're fucked.

I'm in mourning for the Neutron Man.  :(  I sat in "his" section my sophomore year at OSU, and he was just the greatest.  I hope they play "Neutron Dance" one last time in his honor and retire the song forever.

Rest in peace and Go Bucks, Mr. King.
