Sad Bastard*

As if December 15, 2009 wasn't horrible enough for me... Dorian Devins, chanteuse and Secret Science Goddess (one of a pantheon of two), told me that David Byrne (yes, THAT David Byrne) attended the lecture given by James Hansen, the one lecture in the series that I missed due to my father's death.

One phrase I have been using since Thanksgiving, when I called off travel plans because I had two co-workers who were out with bad backs, is "doubling down on the suckitude". Yeah, when things are terrible, something will come around to compound the awfulness. I said it in rueful jest then, but last night's revelation really cut me to the quick.

*Hey, that's assonance, the Poetasters' Guild told me I didn't know my assonance from a hole in the ground.

Who isn't?

Also, ZRM, I've got a present for you (not, not a juicy brane). Any way to contact you?

Uh, ignore the man behind the cretin, ZRM... I answered my own question.

I agree, but My Life in the Bush of Ghosts is one of the greatest records ever released.

got you giftie, thankewverramuch.

Still trying to figure out how to force it into iTunes, which is supposed to be possible, but iTunes does not seem to be receptive.

I'd hate to have to resort to roofies...
