Books: Sarah Vowell is giving a speech at some Borders or Barnes & Noble bookstore, apparently for her book, Assassination Vacation. She's the woman who voiced Violet in The Incredibles. I love listening to her--she's a Lincoln fan!--and I hope to buy her book in June.

Gaming: Gaming was sort of there. It got interrupted by a long, at least half-hour, discussion of Lost. Our DM had seen a 'making of' show about Lost, so she was telling us a lot of interesting things about how they chose the cast, etc.

I got some writing done yesterday and hopt to get some more done this morning. I'm incorporating the new things I 'learned' about my race for the fantasy novel, which means I'm having to change some things around so they will be more consistent with that.

Dreams: I dreamed more about airplanes and also about M*A*S*H. This time, the airplanes were jet fighter craft, and the flight instructor was having the pilots take off near some power lines, to see how well the students avoided them. No crashes, this time. The MASH stuff contained lots of medical goings-on, and part of the dream was in sepia tones, which made it look very interesting. Most of my dreams last night were apparently of a military theme.

Filibustering: You know, I really think the practice of filibustering is stupid and a huge waste of time--or at least, it was in the days when you had people speechifying for hours on the Senate floor and reading the telephone book or whatever. Why is the Senate fighting to uphold something whose most notorious use was in the 1950's to block civil rights legislation? Nowadays, they don't even bother reading the phone book; they do something called a 'virtual filibuster,' in which they simply announce that a filibuster on X topic has begun, and I guess it continues until enough people vote to end the thing. How wacked is that? It's straight out of the Star Trek episode, "A Taste of Armaggedon."

Work: The four day-long summer camp that my agency is sponsoring will begin this Tuesday and last through noon next Friday. A significant number of staff will be out of the office, dealing with this. I don't look forward to explaining to potential callers that their conuselors will be gone all week. That's never fun, because most people cannot understand why someone might be gone for an entire week. A day or two, maybe, but not five days in a row. I guess we'll see what happens.

You Are The Champion
"Don't worry, I got it."

You play as the Hero. You are the one who usually tries to take on the world for any cause you believe in. You are a natural leader in most circles and are not afraid to take that position if a situation calls for it. Others look to you for inspiration and praise you for your acheivements. Even though they love and adore you, however, you are left feeling alone or overwhelmed many times. You're almost always positive and keep your chin up despite any setbacks because you know that you will succeed in the end, no matter how long it takes.

Which Classic Story Role Do You Play?
brought to you by Quizilla

No, this is not me. Some of my characters, maybe, but not me. *scratches head in bafflement* Yes, I am a lot like Seth, but only in the angsty ways, not the cool ways. (g)

Interesting--Paul's result came back as 'The Champion,' too, even though the answers I gave for him were substantially different from my own. They were different primarily with regard to emotional reactions, though (Paul is not nearly as cheerful a person as I am). He still considers honor to be paramount and had other answers similar to mine.

Your Birthdate: August 29

Your birthday on the 29th adds a tone of idealism to your nature.

You are imaginative and creative, but rather uncomfortable in the business world.

You are very aware and sensitive, with outstanding intuitive skills and analytical abilities.

The 29 reduces to 11, one of the master numbers which often produces much nervous tension.

This is the birthday of the dreamer rather than the doer.

You do, however, work very well with people.

Chat with baghdaelf, regarding her Classic Character result:

aerden: Interesting character type!
aerden: Cool outfit she's wearing--very elven!
baghdaelf: (g)
aerden: *sits on the hoardes of elven ladies in my head who want that dress*
baghdaelf: (g)
aerden: Me: "Ladies, you know the leaf cut-outs on those sleeves would never stay flat on your arms in real life, the way they do in that picture."
aerden: Hoardes of Elven Ladies: "We'll glue them down! Sooo pretty!"

Current Mood: Huh?
Current Music: "Happy Ending" - Avril Lavigne

There's a Dog: The Bounty Hunter marathon on A&E right now. Whee!

*rushes off to watch*
