Organization of American States - 35th meeting taking place right up the street from work. It's going to play heck with traffic, and a lot of security hubbub as a result. More info here.
I wonder if anything of significance will take place there? Some interesting milestones in the past. Lots of protesters out and about... Bush'll be there about 11am today.
I've been learning a lot more of my South American history, with a focus on Colombia lately, for obvious reasons. Previously, I knew more about Brazil, mostly due to Wilton, Sabrina and the dense Brazilian community down here.
Some Web logs in my neighborhood. This one is about 7 blocks from my place.
Another list of locals.
Monday morning meeting in a couple of hours. I try to find something positive in it, and it's usually such a drag! Lots to do this week. - Quarterly hubbub again, already.
I'm glad to see a trend of burlesque making a comeback.
Yesterday's wet dried up about 9am, and became a beautiful day! I hope that the run for the bus is dry this morning.
I forgot until just now that I look more like Silent Bob than Jesus when I have a full beard.
Truth be told, I usually wear a ball cap brim-front.

The beta Yahoo messenger has a voice chat & voice mail capacity now.. I rather like it! The photo sharing still seems a bit buggy, though.
Episode 11 of Doctor who was a weird "continuity filler" tossing together elements from a few past episodes into a story. Mentioned Bad Wolf scenario outright.
Don't much like ol' Cap'n Jack. He's too much of a one trick pony... like a fat character on a TV show always talking about food. Typical, and funny at first if well written, but the shine is coming off. He needs more definition than just "horndog".
The villain of the piece looked a lot like Big Kahuna, too. That's an unfortunate coincidence. I liked the resolution of the issue, too. I was a lot more enthusiastic about the preview for next episode, although I've never been keen on reality tv, and the weakest link isn't my thing.
After Getting Drunk, Becoming Sober in the Night
by PO CHU-I
Our party scattered at yellow dusk and I came home to bed;
I woke at midnight and went for a walk, leaning heavily on a friend.
As I lay on my pillow my vinous complexion, soothed by sleep, grew sober;
In front of the tower the ocean moon, accompanying the tide, had risen.
The swallows, about to return to the beams, went back to roost again;
The candle at my window, just going out, suddenly revived its light.
All the time till dawn came, still my thoughts were muddled;
And in my ears something sounded like the music of flutes and strings.

Favorite Icon of the moment:
Moment of Lyric:
I never promised you a rose garden.
Along with the sunshine,
There's gotta be a little rain sometimes.
When you take, you gotta give, so live and let live,
Or let go.
I beg your pardon,
I never promised you a rose garden.
