This just tickled me

There's a real post coming, I swear. Really. Not today, though. We're in the middle of a two-day open house here in the library. I've spent the morning working at various places for it, and there will be more to do tomorrow. The brain, she is fried.

OwowfreakingOW part 2, or, I'll give you something to cry about

You know those tissues they make that have lotion in 'em for your poor ravaged nose? I bought some of those for my desk at work to keep myself from doing stupid things like a) blowing my nose on toilet tissue or paper towels; and b) applying hand cream to my face because a solid day of paper towels and toilet tissue on the face is rough, man.

Guess what, though? When you read a tweet that friends had to take their dog for an emergency visit to the vet's and the poor puppy never made it home again, and it gets you all teary-eyed? Don't wipe your eyes with the lotion tissues. Sting! Dang that hurts! My eyes are watering more, and I'm fighting the urge to use another tissue to wipe 'em.

Well, at least I'm not crying over the dog anymore.

I wonder if I can catalog blind?

Playing with Blip

A couple weeks ago my sister got me hooked on a site called Blip that pretty much turns you into a little DJ. I can make my own play list from a huge song library (provided I can find the song I want. Their search engine can be a little imprecise), and anyone can listen to it that wants to. I can listen to other people's lists, merge them with mine on my own "personal radar," listen to what everyone's putting on their own lists on the public feed, or just listen to my own.

I just yesterday found another Jonathan Coulton song I like, and I submit it here for your enjoyment:

Jonathan Coulton - Ikea
