matt has inspired me to
finally share the veritable
cornucopia story. [i know you've all been holding your breath.] well.
tonce upon a whime, there was a gretty little pirl named prinderella. [oh
sorry, wrong story.] well. when i was in college, there was a fabulous theatre
festival called new voices. it
was the most fun. during nv10, i got to play the part of caroline, a hippie
psychic, in the dreamery by catherine darensbourg. for the part, the
front of my hair [which ryan has deemed a wellspring
of curl] was all in little tiny braids. one day, i bounced into the theatre
[i tend to bounce a lot] and my braids were swinging and my curls were
springing and my friend h [who happens to have two degrees
in physics] got very excited [as h is wont to do] and proclaimed, "you are a
veritable cornucopia of simple harmonic motion!" the end.

you've got to be kidding me, case 9 in a series. association of drivers against
daytime running lights. first of all, it saddens me that people have
nothing better to do with their time than this. secondly, i like daytime
running lights. i wish everyone had them. my first car did, and my honda
doesn't and i miss them. mostly i miss them on other people's cars.
especially when it's snowy and rainy in the daytime so you don't need lights
to see where you're going, but visibility of other people seeing you is
horrible. oh, like monday here for instance. when i was driving through
afternoon snow and thinking, "goddamnit! i wish people would turn on their
damn lights so other drivers could see them!" [via metafilter]
[speaking of cars, i've been having really wacky car karma
lately. been stuck in horrible traffic more than once this week, and almost

House prepares to explicitly outlaw gay marriage. "Last March, Vermont
became the first state to recognize civil unions, giving gay and lesbian
couples all the rights, benefits and responsibilities of marriage. The law,
however, stops short of legalizing same-sex marriage. . . Supporters of the
bill said it was necessary to clearly state that despite civil unions,
marriage was not open to same-sex couples."
