Another day (night), another LJ layout. I'm telling you, it's become a sickness. The preset schemes were just so ugly that I had to come up with my own colors. So far I think everything is readable, although I'd really like to use some fonts that they don't provide. Oh well. That's what I get for shunning the teachings of the wise HTML ones.

Watched a little bit of the most recent Charmed episode tonight. Laughed my butt off. Seriously, I had to reattach it. Also watched the series premiere of Futurama. Man, I so need to ask for those DVDs for Christmas. And a DVD player to watch them on, I suppose.

I've been way too bored lately, which I think is why the muse has gone into hiding. She seems to be most active when I have 5000 other things to do... usually around midterms. But now, when I have my afternoons free and my evenings (not counting quality time with the TV) open, she sneaks off to who-knows-where.

Ppphhff to her.

Hey...

Has anyone around here ever read Margaret Atwood's "A Handmaid's Tale"? I had to read an excerpt for my English class, and now I'm kind of hooked despite myself. It was only written in 1985, but is it online anywhere, or maybe available somewhere really, really... nice and cheap?

Woo :)

There's a copy of The Haidmaid's Tale at the campus library. And soon it will be mine, all mine!

(Well, until I have to give it back, but you know what I mean.)

Another case of The judicial system ignoring the will of the people.

Another hot day here in Stockton. For once my room isn't freezing cold. I went out and did my tutoring at the elementary school, and have been lounging about and reading A Handmaid's Tale since. Going to watch a Buffy repeat, the CA gubanatorial debate, and then Condi Rice on Bill O'Reilly's show. And dinner somewhere in there.

The excitement just doesn't stop ;)

Watched the Cali debate tonight, and it was interesting. Ariana and Arnold were funny, McClintock was earnest, Bustamante was smarmy, and the other guy was there for PC reasons. Personally, I'd like to vote for the moderator :)

Personally, I think either Arnold or Tom, whichever one is lower in the polls, will be asked to step out. I dunno whether or not they will -- but I don't think either wants to be known as the guy who split the ticket and let Mr. Smarmypants win.
