All that glitters, all that remains

I've waited forever to write this, so I will make it more of a "catch you up" post.

Saw Glitter Tuesday night. It was bad. It was so bad, I've become a bit of a conspiracy theorist about it, thinking it was a set up by her record company to make it easier to sever her contract. Soundtrack wasn't bad, though. What happened to the Mariah Carey of our youth, the fun, non-hoochy thing? She's probably hanging out with the Whitney Houston of our youth; we haven't seen her in years, either.

My last camp as RHD finished up Wednesday. I still work desk for a few more weeks, but, for all practical purposes, my conference season is over. It feels weird, I've never been this worn out by conferences. Maybe it is time to call it quits. I have between now and February to think about it, so there is no need to be hasty.

Tornado Warning last night, so I was almost late for work. Get to work finally to find out . . .
we had no power!!! I think I handled it well, though. I dug the little radio out of the emergency bag, used the big old battery lantern and settled in for a long night, since there is no way to turn off the emergency lighting. Battery backup on the phones didn't fail, so I don't have to worry about any recipient rights issues (wipes forehead and says "whew"). Power came back at 1234a, so I was without power for less than an hour. Beth said it had been off for about forty-five minutes when I got here, so I now know that the phone battery lasts about two hours, at least.

I think I'm going back to bed for a few hours when I get out of here. I need the sleep more than I need to move my stuff to the apartment.

Scarily accurate

Stewart

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Your name of Stewart creates a quick, clever mind capable of grasping and assimilating new ideas. You are rather studious, mentally challenging each new idea before accepting it. Because you learn so quickly you have little patience with those whose mental processes are somewhat slower, and you could become supercilious or somewhat "know it all" in your attitude. This characteristic could make you rather unpopular with your associates. Although you are very knowledgeable and intelligent, you often find spontaneous verbal expression difficult. You crave friendship, understanding, love, and affection about your reserved manner appears forbidding to others. You can give expression to your personal thoughts and feelings most fluently through the written word. You have a sensitive nature--sensitive to your environment and particularly sensitive to how your deeper and more serious interests are regarded by others. Your feelings are very easily hurt and to protect yourself you withdraw within the realms of your own private thoughts and shut out the rest of the world. Moods, which are your worst enemy, result. Your sensitivity and lack of verbal expression frustrate and limit the satisfaction in life to be gained from your responsible and capable nature. Health problems arise due to worry and a sensitivity in the respiratory area which could lead to problems with the heart, lungs, or bronchial organs.

What's in your name?

on their name list, they have Stewaro. Now that's a nickname I've never had. I may try it on for a few days.
