A Most Random Post

First—another thank you, this time to eva-lon for listing me as a favorite.

Secondly, thanks to BUST magazine for putting me into their girl-wide-web. I'm a big BUST fan and am proud to be listed.

It’s been a rough week in Ensie-land. I’ve been working late all week and the Daylight Saving time change is messing with my circadian rhythm. I feel like I lost more than an hour this week. I don’t fall asleep or stay asleep easily most of the time, is there really a reason for screwing with my body like this? Apparently there are several reasons.

Some strange facts about Daylight Saving Time from the WebExhibits Daylight Saving Time page:

· Daylight Saving Time saves energy

· Daylight Saving Time saves lives and prevents traffic injuries

· Daylight Saving Time prevents crime

· Indiana, Hawaii, and Arizona do not switch to Daylight Savings Time

How incredibly random. But don’t you feel better now that you know? I certainly do.

Now for something completely different--In honor of Easter, check out this bunny cartoon. It’s highly worth it.

And in the spirit of including random links, check this out.

In other news, I picked up my brand-spankin’ new marriage license today. Then I thought I’d try my luck at the DMV and get my last name officially changed. As soon as I walked into the DMV office, I knew I had made a mistake. The “no appointment” line was at least 25 people long. While I won’t go into some sort of rehashed comedy routine about the DMV and their idiotically slow line system, I feel like I have to say something. So, I’ll just say, “pygmies”. See the movie Matchstick Men and you’ll understand. My last name is still in its maiden form, and will remain so until I am proactive enough to make an actual appointment to get it changed.

Speaking of movies, I saw The Girl Next Door today. It was surprisingly good. A bit choppy, not something I’d recommend spending full price on, but good for a matinee. It made me think of 80s teen movies a la Sixteen Candles and Risky Business. Please note that when I say that it made me think of 80s teen movies, I don’t mean to imply that it is anywhere near as good as Sixteen Candles and/or Risky Business.

Closing out tonight's blogging—send kind thoughts out to my mom. She inherited my late grandmother’s dog a few years ago and had to put her to sleep yesterday. Suzie, aka Adventure Dog, had chased a rattlesnake out of the backyard. While bravely defending her house, this 8 lb. Miniature Doxie took a snakebite to the nose, and the vet recommended putting her to sleep as opposed to going through a grueling routine of anti-venom and blood transfusions. Hope Suzie is having a good time sitting in Nana’s lap again.
