flummoxicated: (Better call Saul)
Jeff and I continue to pass this cold, which in my case hasn't quite turned into a cold, back and forth. He slept for 12 hours this morning. I barely had the energy to make it through my classes Friday.

I seem to have developed a bit of a crush on both Bob Odenkirk (hilarious) and Vince Gilligan (genius).  I'm also depressed about this whole government shutdown thing. It's also depressing to know that Socrates was right about rhetoric being abused by people with no ethics. Stupid Socrates.

This weekend we went to the local public library's book sale. I got a neat sewing reference book, Vogue Sewing, the pictures reveal some of the worst in 80s fashion, but there are instructions for five different kinds of bound buttonholes, so I will ignore the wedding dress dripping with lace and a ruffled bib. I am trying to get cheap copies of books referenced in Lost, and I found:

Our Mutual Friend
Of Mice and Men
Watership Down
(I've been looking for this one in used bookstores for quite a while)
To Kill a Mockingbird
I had a brain zephyr and forgot to pick up a copy of Carrie, but that should be easy to find. Wat else am I forgetting, fellow Losties? Besides Bad Twin.

Also scored recent books on Flash and Shockwave, an Italian textbook, a book on the defeat of the Spanish Armada - all kinds of good stuff, crazy cheap.

I ordered my socks from Sock Dreams Friday and got them Monday - "grrrr, tiger fast!" - not sure where the digtal camera is, but here's one of the three varieties I picked out:

I voted. This really is a red state, a few races had unopposed Republicans. Senator Lugar was opposed by a Libertarian. I wore my Guy Fawkes button -it was subtle because it's a woodcut pic of him with the words "What a Guy!" and it was covered by my coat - it made me feel a little better.

My main email account is a little wonky, I have to check it online since my motherboard is apparently kaput.
