apparently, it's national cleavage day in the uk. "They stop traffic, men love them and women are rarely satisfied with them." [via not so soft]

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 got totally nailed this morning by a yahoo who apparently thought the stop sign was optional.]

why the human race is doomed, case 23 in a series. Vermont 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."

all morning i've been sitting in my far too cold office being far too cold. and thinking, "damnit! i can't believe i forgot a sweatshirt!" and being far too cold. so i finally decide that it is far too cold and i am just going to have to sit in my jacket all day long. i get up, walk to my jacket, put it on, and turn around. there, on the back of my chair, is the sweatshirt i left in the office last week. it's going to be one of those days.
