House 4x05 )

Look, VP (and VP's Melissa Freakin' Martin aka [Bad username or site: @ livejournal.com] is sort of a little bit famous today:

Also, after reading [Bad username or site: @ livejournal.com]'s superfabulous post about Stephanie Myers and her sparkly books of doom AKA the Twilight series, I a) laughed a lot and then b) cringed when Smeyer's "The Host" appeared at the library for me. I should really read it and see if the Snarkability endures in her adult novel. Anyone know? Meanwhile, I'm not sure I want to be seen in public with this book. ;)

OK time for housing some more House.

First things first: Today is Vaginapagina's 6th birthday (and I stayed up semi-late last night Photoshopping frosting-splooge off that cake photo in its honor, and then poorly drawing on the little kid candles - that is how much I love VP. :))

So, life update: not a lot is going on. I'm busy at work and I'm feeling a lot more on top of things then I ever did before, which is nice. We have propane again, after nearly two weeks without it! I look forward to frying an egg in the morning, and I made pasta just because I could. I'm kind of just...busy, but not interesting, right now.

Things I need to do:
*learn to speed read
*get better at Scrabble (Ryan has beat me soundly and repeatedly in the past few days)
*catch up on a big ol' Google Reader backlog
*order the things for the thing at school
*find out why I received table legs, but no table tops, also at school
*become interesting before my Livejournal devolves into list-making posts OOPS

OH HEY TV STUFF )

I went to bed last night around 10:15 with a migraine, which sucked - but I took Imitrex and went to sleep, and didn't wake up until 9 this morning (when Ryan woke me, actually). Wowee. :) Vacation is nice!

Meanwhile, [Bad username or site: @ livejournal.com] is closed just for this week, and it's an incredibly weird feeling. Us mod-type people needed a break and a chance to discuss stuff, so it's good - it just feels really strange.

I meant to share these articles about VP with my friendslist too, and kept forgetting:

Part 1
Part 2

Part 3 will go up on Friday, I believe. We all got interviewed for the articles, and we are pretty happy about them! (Just ignore the random question marks, we don't know why they are there.)

In other news, this year's Newbery winner contains the word 'scrotum'. Watch as people everywhere, including LIBRARIANS, who are not supposed to DO THIS SORT OF THING, freak out completely. In the story, a dog gets bitten by a snake on his scrotum. The author says this is based on real events, and she chose to use the real word because it's just the name of a body part. People are upset because they don't know how on earth they will explain this to The Children. Ryan and I talked about this yesterday, and I think the best explaination would be to simply say "that's part of the dog's private parts". Kids giggle, but understand, and we move on. Now, I will still want to mention this issue to my principal before buying the book, because that's just covering our collective butts all my bases. But it;s a Newbery winner, and one should buy the Newbery winner, you know?

I've been listening to the same song on repeat for about half an hour now. Maybe it's time to make a change.
