Today is Like Friday for Me!

I have tomorrow off. I’m going to use the holiday to work, but still! My work (researching and writing) is fun!! God, I miss my writing life. I can’t wait to get back to it. I will always be grateful to the U.S. Census for giving me a job when I really needed it, but as I was telling one of my Census co-workers, much as I love them (and I do, these people are great) I miss working on my book full-time. Keying in and filing time sheets just can’t help but compare really badly to the research I’m doing now.

For instance, just before leaving for work yesterday I was reading the latest email from an astronomy professor named Dr. Mark Whittle. He’s been helping me understand what he talked about at a presentation at the recent World Science Festival. (Thank you, Dr. Whittle!) I’m tying something he worked on back to something Leonard Bernstein said at a Harvard lecture 40 years ago, and then I’m tying all of that back to singing Mozart, Bach, and others. It was painful having to leave that.

Finney update: Finney is MUCH better. He’s been completely off the pain killers for a few days now and he’s peeing normally. He and the treatment we’re giving him is going to be part of a study about cats with cystitis. So life at Perry Street is SO much better now.

So You Think You Can Dance Update: ALEX. For the love of God. ALEX. I’ve watched that hip hop routine a billion times. If you aren’t watching the show you are really missing something this season.

This is a picture of a a fire I passed by on the way home. It was pretty intense. I wonder what the outcome was. I guess I’ll find out when I walk home today. Unless it’s a katrillion degree out. In which case I’ll be taking the subway.

Holiday tomorrow!!

  2. A bunch of us sang O Canada the other day, not knowing it was Canada Day! It was sheer coincidence!!
