Ladies and gentlemen, the speaker of the house.

I can’t decide if I think this is amusing or not. Nancy Pelosi just rick-rolled. I’m not a fan of Nancy Pelosi (I regard her as the same sort of self-important melodramatic middle aged woman that usually gets her self-esteem from teaching 3rd graders), but honestly, if anyone can still get an image boost from participating in an ancient, played-out meme, it’s a congressional baby boomer. (And yes, I think there’s a 17-year-old page behind this.)


Pain in the neck

Sorry for the lack of updates the past few weeks, but between moving to a new apartment, a rigorous social schedule (whee!) and a normal work schedule, I haven’t had time to do anything. In fact, the only reason I’m typing this right now is because I pulled a nerve in my neck by sleeping funny last night, and I can’t move my head to the point where I can watch TV in bed as I wait for the Benadryl to kick in.

BTW, Twitter blows. I can’t imagine a more pointless communication tool. Why NPR has such a hard-on for this thing I have no idea.
