Thor's Day

Administration
Happy birthday to tidesong!

Medical
Still achy, but more functional. Still not so much with the food. Going to work today, though.

House Concert!
Rebecca Loebe! Jenn Grinels! Right here in Watertown! RSVP to shadesong AT gmail.com for directions. Suggested donation $10-$15. Doors open at 6, show starts at 7.

Laptop
We went ahead and ordered, because the slow backup laptop went to veeeerrrrryyyyy slllloooowwwwww. And I just can't get any work done. So there's that.

Google Buzz
Now, see, this is what I was hoping Wave would be like! People are skeptically saying "so it's like Twitter or Facebook?", and no, I think the awesome of it, like xoder pointed out, is that it's a social extension of Google Reader. Sharing items in Google Reader has always been one-way communication, and now it can be a conversation. Plus, Buzz tops Twitter in that you can include photos and videos. It doesn't do everything Adam needs it to do to replace Twitter for him, but it does for me, and that's one less tab to keep open. I still can't figure out what Wave is good for. But this, I get.

And the #1 best use of Buzz so far? Matt Staggs's D&D game.

Plans
Work. Home. Nap? Got the house mostly tidy last night, so I don't have to be quite as frantic this afternoon. Rebecca and Jenn arrive at 5:30. Then there is concert. <3

I'm at about a 7 painwise and must medicate and nap before tonight's concert, but -

there is an awesome discussion going on here about "My Empire for Ashes" so far. If you've been reading, you might like to chime in!
