It's probably not a good thing to be posting things about television in the books section, but why not.

I'm turning into a huge fan of The O.C. Needless to say, it's not high art. It is however very entertaining. I sort of things that I'm a mix of Seth's geekiness with Ryan's antisocial nature. I'm a little bit worried that I don't have any of the positive traits... or at least not to the degree that I'd like.

It's totally entertaining in a painful sort of way. There are too many things that touch home.

Of course, it doesn't hurt that all the girls have puffalumps.


My favorite Joke

It's bring-your-parent-to-school-day and all the kids are taking turns walking to the front of the room with their dads to explain what they do when the teacher notices that Timmy in the back row seems very unhappy.

Teacher: Timmy, is something the matter? You can go next if you want.

Timmy: (sniffling) I can't go, my dad is dead.

Teacher: Well, if you want, you can explain what your dad did before he died.

Timmy: Explain how he turned blue and shat on the carpet?


Lunch was good

I went to the wrap.

I also just found out that I didn't submit my expenses for an observing run I made back in September. Whoops. Take care of that tomorrow with the expenses from the AAS meeting last week.


Post a playlist

I think it would be cool for all of the [real] users on this blog to post a playlist. This month's question is: If you could only have one CD of music out of your mp3 collection, what songs would you put on it? Bonus points if you're on the subnet and you can share the playlist with iTunes.

When I Wake Up Tomorrow -- The Perishers
Something Pretty -- Patrick Park
The Blower's Daughter -- Damien Rice
Lay Lady Lay -- Bob Dylan
Wicked Game -- Chris Isaak
Mr. Brightside -- The Killers
Cool Gwen -- Stefani
Let Go -- Frou Frou
Life in Mono -- Mono
Fade Into You -- Mazzy Star
The Scientist -- Coldplay
Home and dry -- Pet Shop Boys
Three Libras -- A Perfect Circle
Letting The Cables Sleep -- Bush
Your Ghost -- Kristin Hersh

My songs will be in ".blogsongs" on my computer. Sorry that so many of them are protected, you can come in and listen to them at lunch.
