the only earth?

shut up!

Wonkette posted the transcript of Bill O'Reilly's interview with Jon Stewart and this this is how O'Reilly describes the (emmy award winning) Daily Show and its audience:
O'REILLY: You actually have an influence on this presidential election. That is scary.

STEWART: If that were so, that would be quite frightening.

O'REILLY: But it is. It's true. I mean, you've got stoned slackers watching your dopey show every night, OK, and they can vote.[wonkette]
Read it and weep. Really. I did.

long hard slog

I am, in fact, back at work for the week and have spent much of the day typing up some results that I should've summarized a week ago or on the plane, but that is the thing about setting one's own deadlines. Despite my moderately decent progress -- currently summarizing page 20 of 25! -- I think that the most satisfying accomplishment of the day has been solving the "petals around the rose" puzzle [#].

My goal is to stay here for another hour so that I can just catch a bus up to Wallingford for Kate's birthday dinner. By which point, I will obviously be finished with today's project.
