entry ticket?
Heh, now all I have to do is find an acupuncturist to date and go to library school:


Oh wait--at $COMPANY I once had the hat of Backup Tape Librarian. Bingo!

Still Awake.
Last lfawdbl post July 5th? Unfortunate. Therefore, I shall revive it with urban delights!

Whilst examining my aerial map of San Francisco, mine eye caught an odd little slash going straight through the Mission District like the face of a cat after a fight for pissing rights. Juri Street appeared to run along this odd path of non-rectangular buildings:

It seems that the SF & SJ railroad used to own it as a thoroughfare. Have any of you ever come across places like that where a grid system creases for no obvious reason?

Update: Even more oddly, maps.google.com shows Juri St. being in a different place than it does if you scroll to SF via the maps on my web site...

My performance on July 4 went SPECTACULARLY! Pictures to come, perhaps some YouTube if I'm really bold and can stand the scrutiny.

Smooches to all!

I've seen detergents that leave a better film than this...
In my belly dancing class, we're doing a rather energetic dance that involves lots of shoulder shimmying. I'm OK at shoulder shimmy when my arms are lowered or parallel to the ground, but I have to shimmy for nearly sixteen beats with my arms raised nearly straight up, and I was having a dickens of a time with it.

Like the former library assistant that I am, I researched it and found a page called Shoulder Shimmy Shakedown which not only has excellent hints for doing a basic shimmy, but offers some neat variations. Worth a look, even if she does fall prey to the flair/flare error. Perhaps it should be called the flairor? ;)

Smooches to all,

Flairest in the Land

Wait... what?
This teacher has a thick accent and is difficult to understand. even when you understand the words she says, sometimes her meaning is not clear.

She's been lecturing on "male problem" which means prostate problems, erectile dysfunction, and premature ejaculation.

This is the context in which I find myself leaning over and whispering to the person next to me,

"Wait... did she just say that pornography is a cure for erectile dysfunction?"

[OT] OS X vs Vista, only done with swords, pistols, and fists...
And now, a review of Vista vs OS X, only done with with somewhat medieval tactics:

CNet editors are bored. And so am I. Need faster computer to stitch panoramas.

So, do you, like, stick needles in people, n stuff??
Yes. I stick needles in myself. Not because I'm depressed, but because it's illegal for me to practice on anyone else unless I'm under the supervision of a licensed acupuncturist.

I'd just like to take this opportunity to welcome y'all to this silly little community. Now, it started out as a joke, but as DJ Wong pointed out, it looked sad and empty without any posts. So I'm thinking we might as well use it for something. Well, you guys can do whatever you like -- I'm going to use it for something.

Specifically, I'm going to write posts that pertain to what I'm studying in school. Probably. Maybe not. I see no reason to stick to any guidelines unless for some reason a lot of people join and it gets out of hand.

the only silly thing about this is that we're all more or less on each others' friends lists, so there's not much point in posting anything here rather than there. Oh well. Hopefully acupuncturists and bellydancers and librarians from around the world will join, and then it will be a rockin little community. For now, however, I leave you with the following:

This blog looks sad and empty. I therefore donate this picture of a palm tree farm: http://sweaglesw.net/~djwong/photography/san_diego/april_2007/img_0153_slide.html

Yay!!! Happyyyyy!!!
