Sunday night random:
I hardly got any sleep Friday night, so I made up for it by sleeping 12 hours last night. I don't know, is that even good for you? Now I won't be able to go to sleep until the middle of the night again tonight.

I'm watching Independence Day. I don't know why. I have to say, even after 12 years, though, it's still pretty entertaining. I only know it's 12 years old because I looked it up, by the way. 1996. (I guess that makes it 12-1/2, actually. I'm still doing  math in my head based on it being 2008.)

Packrat - it's a Facebook game, I don't know any way to link to it directly - is driving me crazy. I guess it's a mark of a good game that it drives you crazy and you keep going back, right? (Here's a page with some examples of the cards you collect for it.)

Monday random:
Sleep still kind of all over the place. I woke up at 5:30 and stayed up til Rob left for work at 7, then I conked back out for several hours. I guess I need to just start getting up early and if I can make myself do that then going to bed will probably sort itself out.

I said I was going to start applying for jobs starting today, and I actually did: I applied for a part-time library job at U of Houston. (Not at UH-Downtown, [ profile] profrobert , they must've filled that one - at least, I didn't see it when I looked.) I am still unsure about what I really want to be doing, but library jobs sound more attractive than secretarial ones at the moment. And ideally, I would like to be working something like 30-32 hours a week, but I know that may not be an easy thing to find.

The Idiot's Guide to the Texas Speaker's Race (from Texas Monthly) - I had no idea that the R/D split in the Texas House was so close. It's 76-74. I mean, think about that. Even with that incredible job of gerrymandering that DeLay and his buddies did after 2000, that's the best the Republicans could do.

Good lord, Waterford Wedgwood is bankrupt. Is nothing sacred? (That's right up there with the Boston Globe discontinuing their classifieds, which Col linked to earlier today.)

I was going to post the results for the "What metal are you?" quiz - mostly because it's been days and days since I posted a meme - but I lost it. I know you're crushed. (My answer: copper.)

Oh, and prodded by Col, I watched Wall-E last night. I have to say that it was better than I remembered; however, I stand by what I said in this entry about the part on the ship being relatively weaker. (Or perhaps it would be more accurate to say that it's more conventional.) The parts with Wall-E and Eve alone - or just Wall-E and the cockroach - are the parts that are really extraordinary.

(I picked that icon in order to be random. Besides, I like it and I never remember to use it.)
