Sometimes, the good guys (and girls) actually do win. Yay! (Purposefully cryptic, I know.)

A sad day for TV

ABC cancels All My Children and One Life to Live. I am more upset about this than I thought I would be. Those are iconic shows for me--I grew up watching them and still catch up on them when I get the chance. The end of an era...

Paper Airplane

Wow. This new Alison Krauss and Union Station album is pretty darn terrific. Now I just need someone to volunteer to go with me to see them in concert this summer. Finding someone shouldn't be as hard as it's been!

Yeah, The Giving Tree sucks...

Over at the Dish, readers take on one of the most messed-up books for kids, with an assist from Sassy Gay Friend. I actually meant to post the Sassy Gay clip eons ago.

I had three advising appointments scheduled for this morning. Two of them stopped by almost 30 minutes late and rescheduled for Thursday. The last one contacted me this morning (via email) to reschedule--for the second time. So that's 0 for 3. Not a very good average.

Well, at least I've been able to get some work done.

Josephine Miles
A poem I keep forgetting to write
Is about the stars,
How I see them in their order
Even without the chair and bear and the sisters,
In their astronomic presence of great space,
And how beyond and behind my eyes they are moving,
Exploding to spirals under extremest pressure.
Having not mathematics, my head
Bursts with anguish of not understanding.

The poem I forget to write is bursting fragments
Of a tortured victim, far from me
In his galaxy of minds bent upon him,
In the oblivion of his headline status
Crumpled and exploding as incomparable
As a star, yet present in its light.
I forget to write.

Marry me, Mike Holmes

Maybe it's just the completely ignorant of all things home-improvement/maintenance-related part of me, but I've got a bit of a crush on Mike Holmes. He's like a a superhero or something: Contractor Man! He arrives to "make it right," filled with indignant anger to those who have done you wrong. The only thing that would make it better: if he could hunt down the bad contractors and make them pay.

And he looks kinda hot in those overalls.
