I'm sure I must be up to something, and I will not stop until I find out what.

I have no idea HOW I maintained straight A's during this year of unrelated insanity (professorial forbearance probably had something to do with it), but it turns out I did. So now that grades are in, school is *really* over for the summer and I don't even have to THINK about next fall until at least July. *runs off to play*
Imported my GoodReads stuff into LibraryThing. 5280 books went into the import queue. And then about 90 seconds later LibraryThing went down (for everybody, not just me). Can't help feeling like "hey, I took down LibraryThing!" although I'm sure that wasn't it.
I love the day when I get to put all the library haiku (and senryu) from our library haiku (and senryu) contest into the ballot and then send it out to everyone SO MUCH. I can never decide whether I like reading the haiku from people I know more, or the haiku from people I've never heard of who make me smile and nod anyway more. <3 <3 <3 <3.
Overjoyed. [Dear ex-members of the Bourbon Tabernacle Choir and ex-owners of Yonder Records: if you would like me to send you some money in exchange for sharing this song, I would happily do so. My experience of your works and prodding of the internet suggests that you really don't care. #orphanworks#deeplypersonal ]
Random and won't necessarily lead to anything question: IF (and it's a big if) I was taking a self-directed tech learning course, and I had 2 out of 3 components figured, and wanted to pick, as my third, ONE programming or scripting language to attempt to become very basically competent at, which one would you recommend and why?*
I dreamed Jay and I were having dinner with some of my favorite people that I haven't seen since they moved to Rhode Island. It was in the future because their baby was a 4-year-old. Then, I had to go off to do something. Then, I thought it was time to go, but it turned out they had actually started to have a big party while I was off doing...
On the ONE hand, it is freaking awesome that my degree includes a required info policy class where we study (interesting, meaningful, challenging) stuff like the complexities of electronic voting security, with other iSchool students from specialties like telecom. I like feeling my brain work and I firmly believe it's within my professional scope.
I was just enthusing with a coworker about the spam email I got from Gov. Hickenlooper thanking me for my support of Colorado Civil Unions (I sent them some money last year), and letting me (us all) know he just signed the bill. I was telling my coworker that I am pretty sure this is the first time I have ever influenced public policy in Colorado...
I just found a mistake^H^H^H thought I found a mistake in the LoC authority file. I squeaked aloud in excitement that I would be able to talk about it in my ungraded assignment for org of info this week. #walkingonthedarkside#dorkitude Please feel free to share your own example of disproportionate enthusiasm in the comments.
