Bric or Brac?

  • Don't forget the upcoming Ecotone Biweekly discussion topic I told you about. Tomorrow is the day!
  • Got our son a Dell Latitude to replace his fried ThinkPad. His future college in Vancouver registered their preferred system with Dell, so instead of another refurb where "battery is not guaranteed, may not hold charge", we have fallen into even more computer-debt, but sonny will have what he needs for the next three years of studenthood.
  • Recently received a package from the Rather-Far North and will be upgrading the former computer system with XP Home, thank you very much, kind benefactress.
  • New pup Tsuga (we got our #2 pick of the litter) will be coming home with us on Sunday. Bringing a new puppy home is not entirely unlike adopting a small, incontinent, demented child with very sharp teeth.
  • Our near record-holding longest-duration friend Tim is visiting now from Ohio. He wants to learn about weblog publishing, considering it possibly for the university library where he is reference librarian. So, I'm going to see if I can get him to write a bit of whatever and post here later today. Make him welcomed, y'all.
  • Tim has told me about Sun Magazine that looks like a good read, and a possible place for me to submit some little fragmented essays from time to time. That is, if I ever get back the writing momentum I lost back in May. Need to head back over to Whiskey River for some inspiration.

Does that mean you want me to save you a stock of Suns from my to-be-tossed collection? I have at least a year's worth. Give me an excuse to tootle on up there!

Fred, that wouldn't be Tim the librarian at WCC, back in the day? If so, give him a big howdy from me. I'll have to jog his memory about old times, when we were in TLI Theatre Company together. Ahh, the roar of the greasepaint! The smell of the crowd! Or something like that...

Make sure Tim sees The Shifted Librarian...I've been reading Jenny's work forever.
