Well, these are certainly the coolest baby clothes I've ever seen.
Babyspit.com: baby clothing you'll drool over.
If my life were a TV movie...

Wikipedia and anxiety
Time for some better news:
Mom's book has a Wikipedia entry: The Unprocessed Child: Living Without School. She is also listed as a "prominent unschooling advocate" on Wikipedia's unschooling page.
I have three weeks left until the end of my first semester of graduate school, after which I will find out whether I'm truly grad school material. I have to write some big papers in the next two weeks and I'm kind of anxious about them. I seem to deal with anxiety by reading crassly humorous websites instead of working to eliminate the source of the anxiety, but I'm fairly sure I will prevail over procrastination and get all my work done on time.
There was a game this evening at LSU. I've only heard three sets of sirens and one helicopter thus far, so it seems to be a pretty tame night.
Karttikeya, Sagan and Pound
Three of my cats have been missing for three weeks. Reznor was originally missing too, but he came back after two weeks, skinny and frightened. They never went far away from home by themselves. I think they were deliberately taken. I just wish I knew what happened to them.
I'm never going to let a cat run freely outside again unless I live out in the country. Maybe some of you reading will learn from my mistake and keep your beloved pets indoors.
Bush won and I'm disgusted
I'm disgusted with America for giving Bush a second term. I care about liberal issues and I think he's a disaster. Kerry would have been a great president, and it would have been nice to have a First Lady with some personality. I guess we can just continue to fight for our beliefs, and hope that there are a few jobs and/or civil liberties left lying around after four years. We've got Republican majorities everywhere, and who knows how many Supreme Court justices are going to step down? Goodbye checks and balances. Sigh... Okay, now I have to wrest myself away from news sites and do some reading for school.
