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.)

She: Someone has written The Autobiography of Death

Me: ... wouldn't that be, Death?

(Oddly, I can't actually find a book called 'The Autobiography of Death' anywhere.)


If it's on the internet, it must be credible

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.

I got my photo taken with Amanda Palmer and some other people at Powell's today and it's on the internet
