I love the moist air coming from a dryer vent. Especially when it means I'm done building a dryer vent duct and my clothes are drying! Woo!

I think The Guernsey Literary and Potato Peel Pie Society has the best ensemble cast of characters I've read in a modern novel since The Sparrow. That the characters and the plot also express great love of Pride and Prejudice makes it ever better. Good heavens, what a wonderful book. I think I will have to purchase my own copy ASAP.

I may have to name my next cat Solange. I told Oz of this and he doesn't know what to make of it.

ETA: Any book that can have me sobbing on the bathroom rug at 10:30 AM, and howling with laughter over old ladies with vendettas against the Duchess of Windsor by 12:30 PM, is a good book.

Questies are ROCKSTARS. Great game, great GMs as usual, great staff, great PCs.

You guys are all awesome.

I'm going to sleep now.

That hair I wear when I play Charlie? It's all getting cut off tomorrow. Sorry, Owen.

Sleep. NOW.
Mood:: satisfied

This shirt reminds me of the one [ profile] emilymorgan has that says "I am a cat at what?"

We need a button in IMDB movie listings that you hit to add a film to your Netflix queue.

My officemate just told me about High Spirits, which she says is cheesy but great, and now I want to see it. Now I have to go log in to Netflix and look for it. Sure, only a few more clicks, but integration would drive business for both sites!

Sure, it sounds like the reference librarian is playing regular piano jazz very quietly at the reference desk.

And then you realize she's singing very quietly, under her breath, "When I am King you will be first against the wall...."

(I'd like to dedicate this idea to [ profile] mrmoonpants, long may she reign.)

Here, have some Brad Mehldau goodness. If you click through to the YouTube page, it will start you on a whole playlist of Mehldau. His "50 Ways To Leave Your Lover" is not to be missed. Neither is his "Black Hole Sun." I want to BE this guy.

Commenters on some of these tracks say things like "I had no idea Black Hole Sun had such jazz chords, until I listened to this version!" Really? I always thought I knew very little about jazz but oh, I can hear those things-- ask [ profile] havenstone about my tendency to sing jazz scat harmony over top of "Head Like A Hole."
Mood:: God loves his children, yeah
Music:: Brad Mehldau - Paranoid Android (Radiohead cover)

I told [ profile] holmes_iv earlier that I was totally living my inner social class conflicts this weekend.

Taylor Smith is pretty introspective-girl-singer for a country station, but there you have it:

I also heard the only Toby Keith song I can stand, which is obnoxious but I like laughing at him: I Wanna Talk About Me.

This post brought to you by Oz having sat down on my lap. I'm such a sucker for a cat who sits down on my lap and looks up at me with this "...but I'm so COZY!" look. Awwwww.

I just got my mortgage commitment letter package. Yay!

They got the purchase price wrong. Again. Boo.

Edit: was so tired I was confusing purchase price with loan amount. New loan amount is near old purchase price, so I thought they'd messed it up. Once I figured THAT out I realized I was so tired I should go back to bed. Oy.
