x_los: (OMG)
Yesterday I:

* got a letter back out my deferred Ombudsman interview (postponed, not canceled),
* read and sent emails about my Shakespeare Eastercon panel,
* pulled out some middle-length coats for the changing weather,
* found dresses to wear to the wedding this weekend,
* did a lot of dishes and laundry,
* took out cat litter,
* cleaned the bedroom and the living room,
* made a loaf of rosemary garlic bread,
* made a lot of sweet bread dough (we have yeast to use up before it goes off),
* tab-closed,
* listened up to the latest British History Podcast while cleaning (now current!),
* went to a Let's Enhance! seminar about copyright that might be very useful for the Cam PhD (I find out if I have an interview there in the next few days), took a lot of notes,
* bitched about Let's Enhance! to friends--I think the group leader either dislikes me/I'm doing things she doesn't like, or that's just her manner? Difficult to say, may just stop going? Danny says divide and conquer--befriend one or two of the nice attendees, I say my increasing shut-in grumpiness/inability to befriend the English will cause me to die sad and alone and be eaten by Alsatians--tomayto, tomahto,
* played a game with Katy and friend who was over for dinner, and
* had a bit of a headache, so took drugs and read in bedroom.

I SAVE THE BEST FOR LAST--just when you thought our time had passed, too (HAT TIP TO AN FOR NEWS):

So NATO forces and the Taliban have twitter accounts and tweet one another to bitch. IT IS ACTUALLY THEM. THAT IS A THING. I. I do not even. Who the fuck taught the Taliban to tweet... like 20something hipsters? Have they just found: a kid from Brooklyn? Is he their intern? This just makes me think I am living in the film Street Fighter.
