Daughter of Eve

"If God Was One of Us" - Joan Osbourne

This song [YouTube] played on the radio in the weight room this morning, and listening to it I realized I'd forgotten how much I love it.
If God had a name, what would it be
And would you call it to his face
If you were faced with him in all his glory
What would you ask if you had just one question

And yeah yeah God is great yeah yeah God is good
yeah yeah yeah yeah yeah

What if God was one of us
Just a slob like one of us
Just a stranger on the bus
Trying to make his way home

If God had a face what would it look like
And would you want to see
If seeing meant that you would have to believe
In things like heaven and in Jesus and the saints and all the prophets

It is very much bedtime.

I think the Monday holiday helped make today's being Friday feel kinda surreal.  Plus, the working part of my workweek didn't really gear up until mid-week.  (This is always a bit of a transition -- shifting back from summer mode to academic year mode.)

We went to Market in the Square [Yelp] for lunch.
    Their buffet kind of confuses me 'cause there's no clear order/direction for the lines, and what the food is is written in marker on the glass above the food, and the containers are on top so I initially didn't see them.
    We got out our food to go 'cause the seating was all full, and the cashier asked me if I wanted a bag and I said yeah 'cause the food was hot and just holding it from the buffet to the cash register was more than I really wanted to do, nevermind walking all the way back to HBS.  As I took my bag, a little like Gerbera daisy (blue, purple, white) fell out, so I've been carrying that around like all day.
    I got mac&cheese, which was standard issue fine, and lasagna, which was v. good.

I now have a 24" computer monitor (sans speakers) at work.  But only for a week (or month? I forget).  Because we're communists.  Or something.  (It's a long story.)

Katie and Leslie are excited about the rain tomorrow 'cause then they can feel justified in staying inside being lazy.  My plan was already to stay home, but to catch up on political blogging (though I do have to buy milk).

Possibly I will be motivated to do more housecleaning by the fact that Katie and I have tentative plans to do Target run to get me some more shelves (possibly the same night we go to Finale, because we are just that classy).

I am really looking forward to these highs in the mid-80s shenanigans ceasing.
