my friends sneaked into my lab...and planted these cheery decorations.

i'm bloody old!
princesses can't be old!

Cara the temp2: "the return"

Hi everyone! The jebuz-waffle on my ceiling told me to comemorate my second post (and Easter I suppose) with muppets trying out for the part of yoda. It makes sense to me and I like this better than being told to smite things.
Plus also I thought I would put up this cartoon because it reminds me of a miniseries I just saw.


most important day is today!

Happy "I-terminated-Jebuz-Day"!!!
Next year in Jerusalem!

i just wanted to add a wee bit about my favourite kind of blogs. well, apart from those published by my close friends, i particularly love blogs about...suprise, suprise...books, which category includes: blogs about books, about books on books, about reading, about writing, about illustrating them (including comics), about or of literary magazines (e.g. new yorker etc.). also i enjoy blogs about art of any kind, but it must be good (i.e. makes my brain tingle with admiration and awe). i've been finding more and more really great ones and now my only problem is to find time to keep up with it all! luckily many are updated only once a week. pheeew!

o.k., now i'm really going to bed.


if you've been wondering where i've been for the last several days....i've been very cunningly plotting to take over the world *k. cacles with evil glee* and let me tell you, i'm waaaaay better than pinky and the brain.
but now i've surfaced again and, as d. puts it, i am gracing the department with my presence.
i'm also much cheered by the full development in the spring situation! finally i can go fly a kite on the university bridge! and other such delights...
i also hurry to report that d. had broke out her hooker boots for the first time this season. she says that's cause all her casual outfits are in the laundry. but we won't be fooled. oh no!
in other news, cara, the temp is making another apperance here any day now. stay tuned.


current mood: tired
playing: andrea menard "the velvet devil"

my brain hurts

i will keep away for a bit, i think. well, i have to go visit golder tomorrow so i will probably leave the gift of plague behind...
and the thesis will have to write itself, i guess...
