Today I got a second monitor at work. It doesn't matter that my cube is the size of a postage stamp. Now that I have two monitors I'm well on my way to world domination. The fact that I was near-giddy about my latest technological acquisition tells you just how sad and small my blue fabric covered ergonomically correct life has become. But I STILL have two monitors, so let's hear it for techno-joy!

Today I learned that asparagus have congresses and tomatoes have international conferences. I'm tempted to toss in a casual response about celery not being invited and becoming stalkers, but I think that joke is too dopey even for me. Library humor: Live it. Love it. Then deny it's very existence.

Today I received a lovely note from a woman at church thanking TeenTuna and me for singing on Sunday. Even though I've been in the biz for a long time, I'm always extremely touched and humbled when I hear and read things like this. I don't sing for the glory or attention of it all. I sing because that's what and who I am, and I cannot imagine a day going by without living in music. I'm just the vehicle for the composer and the poet, and I'm always happy when others get as much joy out of it as I do.

Today as TeenTuna had rehearsal, I solved all the problems of the world, traded stories from the weekend, shared a little bit of gossip and completed three crossword puzzles. I also learned that catamaran WAS one of the answers we were looking for, and that the "Capital of Poland?" was Pee. Seriously. Crossword puzzle puns just about kill me.

Today I came home and did a Google search of "japanese aboriginal". The answer is Ainu and I'm quite certain whatever it was that I made up at the end of the 2nd crossword puzzle wasn't THAT.

Today I learned about the sinking of the Lusitania, the political theory of isolationism, the Sedition Act of 1918, and The Allies vs. the Central Powers. In other words, I have a test on World War I in two days.

Today I was baffled to discover there were NEW ORANGE CONSTRUCTION BARRELS on the road. My calendar say November, and I thought construction season was supposed to be over. Maybe it is. Except for two major roads they have decided to tear apart not far from my house. I'll give them until the start of hunting season (no, it means's just a random date) which means everything better be gone by Saturday.

Today I have managed to procrastinate and now a few critical things which needed to be completed will be done first thing tomorrow morning. After all, why should today be any different?
