Scorpion

birthday plotting

Mein birthday slouches forward, like some rough beast. I'm thinking kara-oke is the best bet again this year. Would love to host a party, but doubt I could get many people to Baltimore. So, tentative plans for kara-oke in Laurel on the evening of Saturday, November 5th.

No need for presents, If you want to give me something, a mix CD would be fine and dandy.

Work still goofy busy. Commuting life still long and draining. More later.

[EDIT: Right, dinner. I'm not doing a huge dinner, instead I'll do a couple smaller dinners. Worked well last year. Let me know if you're interested.]

three easy pieces

#1:
Poll #594184 Mental music

Do you always have some song or another running through your head, even when you're thinking about other things?

Yep.
27(77.1%)
Nope.
8(22.9%)


#2:
Took 108 home (cuts from Georgia to 29, meaning it eliminates the long drive down Georgia and most of 70.) Turns out 108 is also mostly a two-lane road, with lots of lights, so I won't save any real time by taking it instead. However, it's a nice alternative, and I can always catch the sights in lovely downtown Olney, or even visit the Silver Spring Museum. Ye-ah.

#3:
Selene just cut my hair! It's even still long, but significantly fewer dead ends. Everything a boy could hope for.
