I'm doing my laundry! What are you up to today?

I'd like to write a post that is deeply intellectual, and challenges all MyLotters. But, alas, I am having one of those mundane days where I just get stuff done. I updated me Resume/VITA this morning, as I'm thinking of getting back into research. There was a sad moment: one of my most "powerful" references, Dr. Daphne Bugental, died earlier this year. She was my graduate advisor at UCSB. It would fill me with sadness to "delete" her from my "References" section. But I suppose I must. She was a wonderful person and a major influence in my life. I just put my laundry in. I sprayed all collars with Dollar Tree Miracle Cleaner. It really works. Now, I may head to Stevie Coyle's elite guitar store and ask how much he'd sell my friend's Collings D-1 guitar for. My friend has decided to "thin the herd." Enough from me. What are you up to on this sunny Wednesday? Tomorrow, I work with the littlies.

@thehorse Laundry can be quite a philosophically challenging topic - am I removing dirt from my shirt or my shirt from the dirt? Do I sub-consciously see washing clothes as representative of washing all harmful influences from my life? It's a minefield out there. I'd just leave the laundry for another day.

I tend to do that. I like to wear the same t-shirt or the same shorts for days on end. Everything I've eaten, sweated out, and otherwise secreted, becomes a part of who I am. If I am accepted, in spite of (or because of) my aromatic statement, then I know that I am truly loved. Thank you for making my laundry day more interesting.

@TheHorse This week my characters are going to their homecoming dance! In general my webcomic is the lives of the characters of the graphic novel I am making. Just teenagers doing teenagery things. It is so wholesome.

It's sunny here too and we head to Perth later to attend a concert tonight. We were given free tickets to see a guy who did a house concert here a year or two ago. In a previous life, he was a Golden Gloves winner in Canada.
