Met and remet a lot of interesting people, at least. ;-) Now that I've been home for a while I don't feel as bummed as I did when I got home. Looked at the motivations of other people, and realized that I'm not pond scum, which I already know, but I'm glad I reminded myself all the same. J'r will probably be home sometime in the next half-hour or so, depending on whether he's doing the groceries tonight or not.
I was reading an interview that Bill Moyers did with Margaret Atwood. This is my favourite quote so far...
MARGARET ATWOOD: "That's true. Yes, that's absolutely true. Sometimes people play these silly games. They say, "What would you have been if you hadn't been a writer?" And I say, "A ballet dancer," which is palpably absurd, because I get dizzy. So the answer is really nothing else. I can't imagine anything else I would rather be. "
It quite makes me giggle, which is a good thing. The website around this particular PBS show is wonderful, I'm just pissed off that I can't get RealAudio working with 10.2.8, and I don't know WHY. The bloody disk image won't boot, so I suspect that the version I have is for some newer version of 10. *grumble*
But enough complaining...hopefully tomorrow...er...later today, I'll go out if my foot will let me. Plan to head to Pandemonium, see if the book I ordered is in yet. Then possibly take the cupon I have for Borders and try to buy something from the remainder of my gift card from the holidays.
A random craving to read something different from whatever all the books I have in the house, not that I don't already have a large amount of books here. ;-) Just a desire for something a bit different.
