Not singing in this rain.
I’m going through my old Tumblr drafts and this is still here from January. I meant to post it after talking to some Republican relatives over Christmas who had this shocked/speechless/choking-at-the-thought-of-it response to me when I said Obama’s a very moderate guy.
Fox news’ll do that to a person.
It’s a good, short read, even if it is old.
Sooooo yeah I’m still selling this desk. 20 bucks. Buy it.
More Job Prospects delivered to my Inbox — CBS just… gets me.
Also, what is a Telephone Operator? Because I think I’m pretty good at that one.
So this is harder than I’d planned…
Has anyone seen this movie??
So Tom Snyder, on WTF w/Marc Maron, mentions how much he loved Jonathan Katz’s humor after seeing him in this movie Things Change that was written and directed by David Mamet (co-written with Shel Silverstein), and I immediately decide to see it. Katz is barely in it (er, so far). It’s this old Joe Mantegna mob movie about mistaken identities and the hilarity that ensues with an old shoe shiner from Chicago in Tahoe blah blah blah.
The only option was renting it through Amazon for 2.99 for 24 hours.
I went out for the night before finishing it, and, yes, got interrupted while watching again 20+ hours later. It expired.
And now I NEED TO KNOW WHAT HAPPENED. Wikipedia and IMDB are no help! I can rent it again, but is it worth it? has anyone seen it? Can we just meet for coffee and you give me the scoop? Is it worth the re-rent?
Stef posted this one, so I forgot to reblog it. It’s a wonderful Saturday afternoon to sit outside in a beach chair listening to the sound of unending Alison & Stefanie chatter.

This week’s episode covers the importance of owning a GPS, finessing your cover letter so you land the interview! And then going on said interview enthused and motivated only to be told you’re worthless….and not as cool as Val Kilmer. Also, Alison reminds us why it’s oh so important to figure out a reliable route to LAX! And to never, ever forget it.
Tune in for all this and more on NOT LIVING THE DREAM!

Hey. I’m selling this desk for 20 bucks. It’s great. It may even fit in the backseat of your car, and it’s not heavy. Buy it.
In Pennsylvania, 98 percent of cave-hibernating bats have died.
Also, 1 bat will consume 900,000 insects per year.
Gonna be buggy East Coast. Yikers!
Also that picture’s kinda nastypants.
Bucks County’s largest bat population has met a grim fate. Scientists have confirmed that nearly all of the 10,000 bats that have hibernated in an abandoned iron ore mine in Upper Bucks for generations have died. When Pennsylvania Game Commission Biologist Greg Turner recently visited the Durham mine for the first time in two years, he found total devastation.
The Durham bat mine was once the second largest known bat habitat in Pennsylvania, but this winter only 23 were found alive. Of those, half had clear signs of infection.
Bucks County’s bats were wiped out by a disease that has been killing bat colonies across the Northeast at an alarming rate in the past four years. White nose syndrome causes a white fungus to form around the nose of infected bats. They lose the body fat needed to survive hibernation and ultimately the mammals starve to death during the winter months.
During his visit to Durham’s mine on Feb. 21, Turner found three different species of cave bats. Eighteen of the 23 bats were little brown bats. Of those, half of them were crowding at the entrance to the cave or had fungus on their muzzles; both are tell-tale signs of the fatal infection….
In Pennsylvania, 98 percent of cave-hibernating bats have died, said Turner.
Terrible. White nose syndrome has wiped out populations across the northeast, too. Since bats regulate populations, expect an explosion of bugs in the coming years. And with rising temperatures from climate change, more bugs will be moving north, and their natural seasonal cycles will last longer.
