i just watched pride and prejudice on oxygen, and now i'm watching the empire strikes back on spiketv. just doing my part to screw with the idea of gender-specific tv networks.

"Education is the silver bullet. Education is everything. We don't need little changes. We need gigantic, monumental changes. Schools should be palaces. The competition for the best teachers should be fierce. They should be making six figure salaries. Schools should be incredibly expensive for government and absolutely free of charge to its citizens, just like national defense. That's my position. I just haven't figured out how to do it yet."
- Sam Seaborn, The West Wing, "Six Meetings Before Lunch"

Someone out there loves me

Oh, Madeleine L'Engle. I cried when you died. Your books made my life so much better.  And when I get this box full of books that I have pre-ordered, I fully intend to sit on my butt and re-read all five of them immediately.

(Seriously, when they did that tv adaptation of A Ring of Endless Light - only my favorite and most-read YA novel of all time, of which I will soon have three copies - starring Mischa Barton and Jared Padalecki, something inside of me died.)

of late:

- blackberry lemonade
- i am finally knitting a sweater, after a few years of ashamedly saying, "i don't know" whenever people saw me knitting and asked if i could make sweaters. i have just added the sleeves. sleeves! it's a real sweater and not just a blob of grey yarn!
- just three more shifts at work
- outside lands was tootootoo fantastic
- dexter and the x-files
