groping rams, etc.

Quote of the day:

“I suspect when God was handing out the ability to use indicator lights, the Icelanders were off groping rams.”
— Alda on her blog, the Iceland Weather Report

I crashed hard last night. Went home with a headache (something that almost never happens), was only mildly hungry for my excellent Mediterranean dinner (something else that almost never happens), and hit the sack by 9:00. I’d hoped to show Mom a little more fun on her last night in town. Well, we did watch the Moonlighting episode where David and Maddie do The Taming of the Shrew. That was nifty.

So now she’s on the road again. At lunchtime, I called her on her car phone. Not a phone that she carries in the car — a phone that’s built into the car. It’s like OnStar, but it’s a phone. Has its own number and everything. Extra charge, of course. But seriously. My mother’s Buick Lucerne is both a vehicle and a telephone. WWDWD? (What would Dr. Who do?)

I have Friday off. Rockapella is playing in Atlanta Friday. I’m not going. But I’m going to Atlanta next Friday for Dragon*Con. A cappella geekery vs. sci-fi/fantasy geekery. Close call.
