took today off work. it's been rather very lushly groovy sauna sticky but not too terribly hot, and now it's raining & lazy thunder, all michigan-overcast faux tropical summer afternoon. michigan-overcast in this case is not so dark, considering how completely it's not been sunny all day. high ceiling of cloudy. open, not claustrophobic.

here's a jojo cover:

maybe i should stop using zshare. they're all asses in the face on us these days. is one to take it these ads are a good match for the file-sharing?

there were lots of fireflies last night. we had a drop-by visitor who was gonna look at fireflies with us. there weren't so many around by the time we got outside, but it was, as people were fond of saying around the turn of the 21st century, all good. people who wanted to encourage the other nearby people not to be freakin'.

my car's finally in the shop to fix the headlight i smashed back around forever ago.

i think i needed a day like this. having had one, anyhow, it's not hard to see how it's behooved.


Today would have been Louis Jordan's 100th birthday. This morning the local jazz/NPR station was playing him & tributes to him. Made for fun dishwashing.

So ya'll better get on those Louis Jordan tribute posts.
