"Been down, isn't it a pity / Doesn't seem to be a shadow in the city"

"Hot town, summer in the city" was a Metro headline this morning, so the song's been stuck in my head intermittently all day.

Writing the Subject line of my last post I was struck by how reminiscent it is of all the guys I've crushed on.  Not sure how I feel about this.  (Part of my reaction is a simple, "Brain -- or whatever's responsible for this -- do you never learn?"  Like, could I find somebody who's sweet and with whom a relationship would actually be a good idea?)

Eric and I were playing 6 Degrees again and I got Jude Law in 2 via Sky Captain.
Eric: "I was look at older movies.  Ones that tended to suck less."
me: "Hey, Sky Captain was fun."
Eric: "If by fun you mean two hours of torture worse then ripping off your own toenails, then yes, it was fun.  It was a blast."
me: "Whoa now.  It wasn’t a good movie, but it wasn’t that bad."
Eric: "I’d rather have a colonoscopy."

"Always look on the bright side of life.  Nobody expects the Spanish Inquisition."

I stayed just a wee bit late wrapping up scheduling stuff (big relief) and changed my voicemail message and set up an e-mail auto-response.

Waling to the Square I bumped into Michelle (heading to the Science Center for her night class).  Elk head story = awesome.  I do miss working in that unit.

Did I mention the gorgeous weather?  This morning it was still a bit overwarm for my taste (though I was v. grateful for the significant temperature decrease since the previous day) but after work it was just gorgeous.  The apartment could still use some cooling off, but it's fine.

+ dinner
+ laundry
+ dishes

Still to do:
+ selecting clothes
+ packing
+ making sure I have all the papers I need (flight info, hotel phone #, etc.)

All I need is four days worth of clothes and of course I'm thrown back into "I don't like any of my clothes."  (Okay, that's not entirely true.  I have one shirt I know I'm bringing.  One down, three+ to go.)
