November 5th, 2004


The short version is

I am quite pleased with how tonight went. I will post more tmorrow. (Right now I need to get my piano out of my car and go to bed. That's sort of a theme with these posts, isn't it?)

Also, as a sidenote for those in need of a little cheering up: While I was driving home Freezepop's free mp3 download Here Comes A Special Boy came on on my iPod and made me very happy.

A joke I didn't use

Before I go to bed, I will describe the little joke I decided not to tell at the show tonight. I came up with it as I was driving up to Worcester.

"It's been a pretty tough week for me, maybe for some of you too. But, you know, I think that we have to get past this setback and look ahead and start to rebuild, and if everyone works really hard then I think that there's a real chance that in four years the Yankees might make it to the World Series."

(I rejected the joke because I decided that if I told it people would (1) think it wasn't funny and (2) hate me.)

After I sang 'The World's All In A Tangle' I said "I suppose I should now apologize to all the Communists in the audience," and a guy raised his hand and said, "Thanks!"

Hey, all you crazy librarians

A surprising number of people on my friends list are studying library-related fields. Most of them don't otherwise know each other, so it's just some sort of odd coincidence, I guess. It's neat!

Anyway, I vaguely remembered that there was some sort of conference going on in the second week of November. I think perhaps it was the American Society for Information Science and Technology Annual Meeting, but perhaps it's something else -- those of you who are interested in this sort of thing probably know better than I.

Anyway, if anyone's coming to town and wants to have dinner or something of that nature let me know!
