So, um, hi . . .

Work is pretty quiet right now and the boss isn't around so I'll be quietly updating this in between purging dead files. (Shh!)

The parentals are off to Peru and the Galapagos Islands for about a month. I'll be minding the house and packing to move out of it.

Friday I took in more poetry, as Ayodele Heath featured at the Portfolio Center. It's on Bennett Street, so I wandered the neighboring galleries that were having opening, soaked up some art and had a long talk with the full moon as I finished a glass of wine.

Saturday I dropped off the parents at the MARTA station so they could have a full day of hanging around airports. I did my usual Saturday errands, did a little cleaning and got a haircut. (Pics forthcoming--though it's really not too radical a change to those who know me.) That evening, I went to see The Julia Dream at Smith's Olde Bar. Also caught a band called The Lord is my Shotgun, who were actually not too bad. Not as rockabilly as the name might imply. Made a mental note to check them out again. Ran into Ang and gave her a very belated gift.

Sunday I slept late (I'd done my Catholic business the night before) used what was left on an Applebee's gift card that a certain annoying boy had given me to buy brunch, thought about going to see a movie but didn't see anything listed that really grabbed me, went home and watched an Ed Wood DVD instead (Glen or Glenda?) and laughed very loudly. Took a long sticky nap, added some CDs to my iTunes rotation (The Cardigans and--finally!--some INXS) and then went down to Stone Mountain to catch some roller derby action. The Atlanta Rollergirls have been at it for a few years now but this was the first game I'd actually managed to make it to. It's a bit like football--loud, fast, violent and a touch confusing to me. But it was fun and I may check out the upcoming match in two weeks.

So, yeah, that was my weekend. And how was yours?

Today I took pleasure in the delightful sequel to the "Making Fun of Duran Duran" video I posted earlier.

Today I learned about a therapist who uses Dante's Divine Comedy as a means of viewing problems.

Thanks for sharing that! I think I might have even liked it better than the first one! *chuckle*

"I'm not interested!"

I found out at Dragon*Con that one of my former co-workers from White Wolf is now an Atlanta Rollergirl. Now I want to catch a game and watch her elbow other women in the neck. ;)

What's her Rollergirl alias? I might have seen her last night--it was a sort of all-star team of the Atlanta Rollergirls versus an all-star team from Las Vegas.

I thought about doing it at one point, but having seen a match I don't think I'd have the stamina for it. So I'll just support from the sidelines.

She's "Reba Smackentire", playing with the Sake Tuyas.
