Pageant and Pomp and Parade

Posted by: meaplet on: July 2, 2009

Today marks the 233rd anniversary of the day the US Continental Congress voted unanimously for Independence from Great Britain. John Adams wrote to Abigail, The Second Day of July 1776, will be the most memorable Epocha, in the History of America. I am apt to believe that it will be celebrated, by succeeding Generations, as […]

Swine Flu

Posted by: meaplet on: May 3, 2009

Like most everyone else, I’ve spent the last week fixated on the Swine Flu/H1N1/whatever the cool kids are calling it today. I’ve been reading NPR’s Flu Shots blog, gossiping about #swineflu on Twitter, and speculating with not a little anxiety about that international trip I’ve got planned for next week. But, geeky soul that I […]

Not Dead Yet

Posted by: meaplet on: September 11, 2008

I’ve been watching closely, but so far it hasn’t. It turns out that this is because Martha Jones and Torchwood saved the world again, complete with questionable science. Meanwhile, here in California SLAC has no funding until November, and they won’t even listen to my advice to make an awesome rap video to rival […]

Absurdism at the Olympics

Posted by: meaplet on: August 12, 2008

Scene: Jen’s living room. Jen, Molly, and Wojtek are watching the Olympics. Announcer: This must be a little bit like waiting for Godot for them. J, M, and W look at each other and question whether the announcer knows what he’s talking about. Molly: “Let’s go.” “We can’t.” “Why not?” “We’re waiting for our event […]

For your further education

Posted by: meaplet on: June 30, 2008

For your further education, I’d like to shine a little bit of light on two very different people who are infrequently confused, except by me. Jon Sims was a luminary of the San Francisco gay music scene in the 1970s, founding the San Francisco Lesbian and Gay Freedom Band and the San Francisco Gay Men’s […]

Stop stealing my life, Randall Monroe

When I saw Randall Monroe speak last fall, he said that people are always claiming that he is secretly watching them and stealing their lives. This of course was not true–he was totally innocent. I believed him at the time, of course. But that was before he stole my “every subject is ultimately reducible to […]

Wedding Recap

Posted by: meaplet on: May 27, 2008

If I were still on LiveJournal, this entry would start like this: I spent the weekend hanging out with tokyo_apple, melfinatheblue, and sarsmicama (and other, LJless folks) at diadem_chi‘s wedding. Of course, now that I’ve started that way, I can’t use anyone’s real names, can I? Or at least, I must be very eliptical and […]

Decisions, decisions

Posted by: meaplet on: May 27, 2008

I could leave my apartment right now and go to a birthday party for WordPress. Or I could go to bed, like a good girl. OR I could watch my third Star Trek episode of the night. (ETA: Or, apparently, I could spend the next two hours writing up a weekend recap)
