creme fraiche

tonight's insomnia is brought to you by "i can't find my camera" and "the creme fraiche song from south park is stuck in my head." it's now 5am, still totally dark outside and i have been awake for probably a little over an hour. finally decided to get up and try to read some more of harry potter and the order of the phoenix. i failed in my attempt to read all the books and see all the movies by the time deathly hallows came out in theaters, but i'm hopeful that i can fulfill my amended goal of doing so before the movie leaves theaters.

where oh where has my camera gone? i hope it's at work, but i have this terrible feeling that i may have left it in the car overnight some time last week and got it snatched by one of those car thieves i read about in the mount airy independent. i suppose that makes me a complainant. the last thing i want to do right now is cough up another $400 for a new camera and case. i just have a hard time imagining that it's been at work all this time and i haven't noticed.

"creme fraiche... cafeteria FRAICHE..." oy.

pube campaigns and gay rifles

my favorite election coverage is by far the liveblogging taking place at wonkette. somehow a republican takeover feels less hopeless, or at least more amusing, when the headline is "change is changing back."

and now, after a long day of walking with lori and coda, having needles injected in my gums and my wisdom tooth drilled, visiting a potential private practice space, voting, buying samara a new bed at ikea, grocery shopping, cooking and assembling my conference presentation, i retire to bed with a little harry potter.
