Lose An Hour Of Sleep At Any Cost

For some stupid reason I assumed that I overslept a little and vaulted my sick ass out of bed an hour early. I wish I could transplant that hour into an area of the day where I really need it. bell hooks is speaking on my campus today while I'm in a class with an incredibly strict attendance policy (4 absences in an entire semester?!?!) and Yoon will be there with some of her students while I hallucinate through another round of Benito Cereno and wish I could be elsewhere. Hopefully we'll be able to grab some lunch. That's where I want to spend my extra hour. Plus with all that money we saved using E-vite for wedding/reception invitations we could supersize the hell out of lunch.

Because that just isn't going to happen I'll mention a couple of things that I forgot to get around to yesterday:

I redesigned the Midcentury site a week or so ago before this evil pox descended on me. I say "redesigned" when I actually mean "wrapped a newish style sheet around the mess and added a weblog for show postings and whatnot." I still think it looks a whole lot better and also has alt tags and the like for those of you using text browsers or screen readers. Cssed is a kick ass little application and really sped things up since my memory for CSS is limited at best. I guess the impetus for it has a lot to do with Matt's impending exodus and the doldrums (ha!) that are sure to come with trying to find a new drummer: "Yes, it really is in that time signature and we're actually playing it a little slower than we normally would..." Argh.

I didn't realize that Lollicup was national. This is great because more people need to experience the boba milk tea love. It helps that boba is chewy so people will usually shut the hell up for a few seconds while chewing. According to their site, Lollicup came from CA just like me and has a whole bunch of stores spread out all over the US although concentrated in the western half of the U.S. Utah could definitely use some "shut the hell up" balls in their tea I'm thinking.

This Amazon list is brilliant and hilarious but given Amazon's attitude towards anything that doesn't sell more books I imagine it will disappear sooner rather than later.

Groklaw has the AutoZone and DaimlerChrysler complaints in glorious, readable text. Maybe later this afternoon I'll have the opportunity to do more than notice that they exist.

  1. Thank you so much for the link to Cssd I’ve been looking for something like this for a while.
