A post-modern woman's daybook

What I don't want to be doing right now: ghostwriting a letter of recommendation from a famous public intellectual

What I've listened to five times today: the exceptional September 19th edition of On the Media

Number hours I've spent wondering if Earth, Wind, and Fire's "September" could be reworked to include the lyrics "in November we remember": 1 hour

Number of times I've said, "Please act like you have respect for me.": 2

Hours I spent doing data entry: not quite sure, enough that it sucked

Best songs on my running mix: Billy Bragg, "All you fascists born to lose," and The Coup, "Ride the Fence"

What I'm watching right now: 19 Kids and Counting (Jill and her man are choosing wedding cakes)

What I want to be reading: The Short and Tragic Life of Robert Place

What I am reading: I can't seem to settle on anything

Best place I went in Providence this weekend: Faust-pleasantly hip with German food


  1. You had me at 19 Kids and Counting. That show is like a conservative Christian train wreck and I can't look away.

  2. I do love some Duggars, although it's not quite the same for me since they stopped wearing matching homemade outfits.

  3. They had to get with the times! The "kill the ozone" hairspray hairstyles (for boys and girls!) is still alive and well thank God.
