linky links

for your entertainment, a few amusing links:

i love okgo. i didn't know they had another album out, but it makes me want to bust out their self-titled.

and i do like kevin smith. it took me a while to catch his earlier films, but they were worth the wait.

an online pal is working on a flick at backburner films, an up-&-coming movie. check it out. you know you wanna.

that's all for now. much better than my rants, i'm sure. need to get my beauty sleep for the first day of work tomorrow. weee! whatever shall i wear?
no really, what should i wear?

hot water

woof! it's warm outside! been in the 90s for the past few days. i've even broken down and turned on the ol' ac for a bit. i think george is protesting these high temps as well because his engine light has come on again. *sigh*
the whole jobless thing is another example of 'out of the frying pan into the fire' but that won't be bothering me for much longer. i guess my stint as a jobless wonder isn't even going to last for a full two weeks. but i definitely needed the break. we'll see how it goes when i start up at the hospital again. hopefully these folk will be more organized (which is part of why i left the previous job before the hospital) and decidedly less backstabbing. not all but enough of them were that it got me booted. something to keep me busy during the day & hopefully i can get a fully functioning schedule again. the only thing to top it would be an interview for the writing lab position. that would be ideal, but i won't complain. it's a step toward order in this chaotic, drama-filled world in which i live.

yes, dulldullandmoredull is exactly what this blog is. as my momma always says 'boring is as boring does'. or was that forrest gump?
but i'm soaking up the whole 'people buying me meals' thing with a vengeance. at least for as long as this inability to hold a job prevails. yesterday was thai food thanks to s. this morning perkins with a, as a thank you for picking her up at the auto shop. then tonight i get the first-time pleasure of real sushi with c. yep, at least i won't starve. (as if there's ever any imminent danger of that happening!)
yesterday, i suppose, was not so boring with the unnecessary excitement and tragedy in london. i'm happy to say that all my pals across the pond have checked in and are doing okay. my thoughts and prayers are with you all. i really don't know what to think of it. it's even more far-removed than 9/11, but it shouldn't be. admittedly, i just happened to have the tv on that morning & saw the live footage before i hurried off to teach the second class of my career. this is not just something that happened in a distant, far off land. it affects us all, just as the g8 & its outcome should also be of importance. i'm really far too uninformed on matters of global policy and involvement and there's no excuse for that at all!
