last night i hung out with friends ashley and maggie, playing games (moods and last word), drinking crystal light, and coercing maggie into listening to justin beiber for the first time (because that is what good friends do). i slept until 2:00 pm today.
welcome back to the suburbs, where trader joe's is more than just a fever dream, cable television and couches are steady companions, and people in line behind you at target expect you to care about the presence of vince vaughn's yoga-instructor mother.
i worked up until my bus ride yesterday, and one of my books had a familiar looking cover image.

i slept between the hours of 8:00 pm and 3:30 am, falling asleep during a movie about a boy who couldn't sleep. i also apparently have no concept of when the sun comes up in late may. but, this is the most productive saturday morning in recent memory. as in, i am awake, i am alert.
the closest i could get to a "lost" dancing post, on the occasion of its final week (since people don't so much dance on that show, as they do run screaming in terror, cry, and/or explode). so we have boone(ish). happy to see he's kept up his dancing since "the rules of attraction"
sometimes i wonder about all the x-rays i've had literally hundreds, over the span of highly formative years many gave no new insights, to the point that i started refusing them when i was old enough to assert myself preservation or frustration? (these two are intermingled)
i slept for a full 12 hours last night. it made me feel young. i am looking forward to a next week, wherein my only responsibilities are going to work, and returning my library materials on time.
fun with subject headings! all of these have come up at work recently, as fine examples of how sometimes library of congress subject headings (LCSH) are odd little things.
1. Pancakes, waffles, etc.
offensive towards the diverse identities of breakfast food
2. Beast marriage
3. Marriage with deceased wife's sister
4. Sex role
especially for a children's book (but really for everything), i think "gender role" would be more accurate and conducive to an actual search. and less, well, gigglesome to readers (or, cataloging graduate students)
