What’s on the iPod: Rockstar by Nickelback
Good day yesterday. I managed a project, research on another project, a dental appointment, closure on yet another project, and tutoring my Vietnamese student last night. She had to take a test to measure her progress, so I had an hour of uninterrupted reading time in the library. I chose Steve Martin’s Shopgirl, and managed about six chapters. I’m captivated. His writing never fails to impress me. I can’t wait to go back and read more next week. Yes, I know I can check it out and take it home, but you should see the stack of books I’m neglecting. In my head, if it stays at the library, I’m not really reading it, therefore I can feel less guilty about not reading all these others.
This morning, the snow that was supposed to be rain is coming down, though we’re promised the heavy stuff is coming later – maybe an inch or two an hour. I love snow. The shoveling isn’t something I love, but being outdoors as I shovel makes it okay.
Good discussion yesterday about Google’s decision to target, somehow, the webspam that clogs their search results. It’s a good discussion because it now lets us focus on the more important part – helping writers who will soon be out in the cold find work.
