counterpoint: as someone who didn't live through any of the above events, this does feel pretty upheavalesque (to me)

    During the Bush administration, Kim Jong Il didn't negotiate with George W Bush or any of the administration's people in the state department or diplomatic corps. He met and negotiated with Bill Richardson, governor of New Mexico, former head of the DOE and former ambassador to the United Nations. Li'l Kim didn't give a fuck who was president, he wanted to talk to the adult in the room.

Awesome. TIL.

I fucking love the National Parks. Goddammit.

    Old moon, he's planning a little vacation, just a few days away, but he's a fusser, that one, likes to take care of his things, so he's covered all his furniture with sheets of light--the trees, the supermarket parking lot, the streets of houses, even the back of a cat on a porch--just to keep the stardust off while he's away.

Aha! On the case, lil! Not to fear...

I still lament my decision not to bring my air-popper-turned-coffee-roaster home. I miss it. It was even one of the side-blowing ones (instead of blowing air from the bottom--those tend to be more fiery)...

Woohoo! Certainly cause to celebrate :) Congrats TNG!

    The body of water is Ampersand Lake.

Ampersand Lake. I like it.

I just saw this...beat me to it by 3 minutes I see.

How common are these things for residential use, lm? I live in a fairly populated area, so doubt it'd have much use here (too many LOS issues)

Went to a career fair today. Seems like all they're always looking for are juniors and seniors. Gonna send out some emails today to some mildly interesting prospects. At least I have one internship opportunity in the bag, in case any of this stuff doesn't work out.

I feel bad for the people who can't get jobs after dozens of applications like this. This is only for internships!
