Beginning of the End

The packing has started.  I packed up four boxes of books and pillows and lamps and my printer.  My desk shelves look so empty!   Walking through the halls of the dorm, you can hear the dulcet sounds of packing tape being ripped off the roll, while tripping over people’s items that have been thoughtfully placed in the middle of the hallway.  Isn’t this a wonderful time of year?

And This is Why I Love the Theatre Department

Exhibit A: Murphy.  Murphy is the beautiful chocolate lab owned by one of the shop guys.  I somehow finagled my way into being responsible for walking Murphy every night after my last cue!  He is such a good puppy!  I just wish I had a longer leash so we could play some sort of fetch…

Exhibit B: Boris.  Boris is the costume designer’s Boston terrier, who is one of the most hyper dogs I know.  He has a slightly annoying yap, but is really cute when prancing around the costume shop/green room with a ball of tulle that is larger than him!  Oh, and he has costumes…

Exhibit C: Ed.  Ed is one of the dance instructors/lead in the play’s golden retriever.  Tonight is the first time I met him, and I get to take him for a walk with Murphy tonight!  Yippee!

And yes, this is the only reason I agreed to do this show.  Well, el boyo may have had something to do with it…

AmazonFail

April 14, 2009 at 5:44 pm (Books, Causes, News articles)

If you haven’t already heard, Amazon decided to de-rank thousands of books they deemed “adult”, except most of the books thus labeled are about homosexuality and do not have adult themes at all!  De-ranking means these books do not show up on the first (or second or third…) page of search results – even if you search for the exact title! – as well as not showing up on bestselling lists.

I don’t have the time nor the concentration currently to do a full post/commentary about this, so I’ll just give you a lovely list of links to other people commenting about this issue:
