Note to self - George recommended Melody Gardot (site - warning plays music). Very nice smoky jazz style. Remember for later when one has cash to spend on music.

Update to add this fun one from Dinah - Jill Tracy (more music playing), interesting gothy vampy atmospheric stuff.

Keeping It Digital

I just wrote a paper on how government agencies are handling email and the fact that many of them "preserve" emails by selectively printing them. Looks like some have realized that's ass-backwards, though according to J. Timothy Sprehe , they're not going far enough: Keeping It Digital.

I agree that legislators and government agencies in general don't really understand electronic media. This is a really SCARY thing when you think about how dependent we are on it to function - how much of our information is stored there, and how easy it is to lose or tamper with it.

Kindred Spirit

The cashier did not even blink when I came to the register with a beer, a small container of olives from the salad bar, and nothing else. She just smiled and complimented me on the color of my nail polish.

It's awfully pink. The picture doesn't do it justice.

Countdown: 6 days

The wedding is in 6 days! There's still loads to do. But I've gotten a kicky new haircut. Less glam than the last one, but probably more me.

I like it. I'm thinking I may need to get some hair rollers to try to reproduce the volume at home.

Also, it is HOT.
