Yesterday afternoon I was judging a mock trial competition for Lewis & Clark. Tonight I'm at a metal concert. One guess which feels like a better use of time...

I represented Florida's 19th District
, but then I got high
I tried to make welfare rules a lot more strict
, but then I got high
Now I'm on a leave of absence
, and I know why (why man?)
Because I got high, because I got high, because I got high

I didn't know it was actually possible to accidentally bite your tongue so hard that it bleeds.
Like, a lot.
I hope I can still talk.

I totally forgot the Fifth of November.
(Until I was at Ground Kontrol and saw a dude in a Guy Fawkes mask playing Rock Band. I just assumed he was a /b/tard.)

Someone has written The Autobiography of DeathMe:
... wouldn't that be, Death? Me: "I WAS BORN A POOR BLACK ANTHROPOMORPHIC PERSONIFICATION"
(Oddly, I can't actually find a book called 'The Autobiography of Death' anywhere.)

The new firm's website
is mostly up and running. My decision to use smaller images interspersed on the page, rather than a single large image at the top of each page, seems to make it a lot harder to make the pages seem neat and finished. And we haven't yet begin filming videos, but that's more Karen's idea and her thing. But it seems not bad. I hope to keep improving it as I learn more, but changes are slow, painstaking and laborious.

Tonight after I got out of work, around 8:00, I went shopping at a crafts store in SE Portland. As I was walking towards the door, I saw three young people leaving, who I knew were Reedies. I'd never met them before, but it was obvious - for one thing, one of them was wearing a Reed sweatshirt. But even without that, I would have been able to tell. There's something about Reed students, and often alums, some subtle affect of body language and the way of self-presentation and looking at the world, that makes them immediately identifiable to each other.
Some of them, anyway. I wanted to wave, but held back. I don't think they saw me; and if they had, they probably wouldn't have identified me as one of their own. Because, of course, I'm old, and was wearing a suit. If I were presented to them - even if they learned a bit about me - they'd probably identify me as having more in common with their new, rather-disliked attorney college President than with themselves. And they might be right. They might have been right about that even when I was a Reed student.

I have a new niece today - yesterday, technically. Alyssa Nicole was born on August 25th at 6:25 pm, weighing 6 lb 12 oz. Mother and child are apparently well. No other information is currently available. I'm asked to go down to see them, but I don't know when I can this week.
At the same time, it seems one of my own uncles is in a hospital, in a coma, back in Detroit. My father's afraid he'll have to fly back for a funeral any day. Everything's happening at once.
