Okay, I’m impressed. I have so many bookmarklets that I need a bookmarklet manager … and one exists! And it’s good!(tags: bookmarklets)
Thanks, birthday-wishers! I had a lovely day that continued on into the weekend, including dinner with friends on Friday, seeing Will Durst on Saturday, and meeting a friend’s brand-new puppy on Sunday, not to mention all the fabulous home-cooked (made-to-order, even) meals from the MSG, or all the EverQuest II. It was a stellar birthday weekend.
I really don’t have a lot to say except that the 71 Haight-Noriega bus riders are almost as aggressive as those on the 1 California, except the riders of the 71 all seem very close to losing their shit entirely, right there, right on the corner of Market and Van Ness, if you can call that sort of angle a corner which I really don’t, but still these people are so practically unhinged that I gripped my backpack and my purse and when it came time to exit I shoved myself at the other passengers while screaming “BACK DOOR!” just to manage to get off at my stop because if I waited one second longer I was going to get another crotch shoved in my cranial region and I don’t know any of those people well enough for that to happen with such regularity, such alarming regularity, and such gusto and also perhaps such defiance, as if to say, I dare you, tiny person laden with luggage, I dare you to utilize your elbow in a thrusting, jabbing manner, and I dare you to head-butt my package. That’s just nothing you should be daring anyone to do. Not unless you’re wearing a cup. But I survived, and so did everyone’s genitalia, and I won’t be riding the 71 anytime soon again.
Also, I am going to change careers and I am going to learn how to draw and also I am going to try out for Jeopardy.
But first … a little sleep.
Some number of years ago today, I was born.
I’m still here.
Thanks for all the love, folks. This life thing just gets better and better.

If you switch to my FeedBurner feed in your RSS reader, you will be 4 times happier when you wake up in the morning. It contains no trans fat and is completely biodegradable. Well, not really, but it is pretty neat.
While we’re mentioning LiveJournal, I’ll repeat it once more: I do not receive any comments you leave on my feed there. Ever. Your comments stay up on the site a few days — I am never notified of their existence — and then they disappear into the ether. So just don’t. Comment on my website instead. It’s not that hard. I’ve even set it up so you can login with your LiveJournal username.
Seriously, now that LiveJournal and Movable Type are bedfellows, you’d think that they’d have all this sorted.
Something beautiful happened in the library this morning: a student came into the I.T. department with a dozen pink tulips. She walked up to the I.T. help desk manager, said, “God told me that you were going through a lot today, so I brought you these,” and gave them to her.
The help desk manager’s sister underwent chemotherapy this morning.
The help desk manager had never seen the student before this.
