I’m starting to think I require some kind of life notification system. Unfortunately, the sort I need doesn’t seem to be something I can program into a computer.
Therefore, O Readership, let the record show that I need to know the following:
When my clothes are on inside out.
When a new album is released by Tool, Firewater, Nick Cave, or Tom Waits.
If there is a sock stuck to my back.
When a new book comes out by Pratchett, McKinley, Marillier, Bujold, Tepper, Bill Bryson or Mary Roach. (NPR has been covering that last pretty well.)
Anything involving Daylight Savings Time.
If, for whatever reason, I have forgotten to wear pants. (Rare, but has been known to happen.)
That the con is next weekend. (The con is ALWAYS next weekend.)
If my tires are flat.
If things are hanging off my car that are not supposed to be there.
That there is paint/bits of gold leaf stuck to visible parts of my anatomy. (Mind you, I may not care…)
When there is a decent kung fu movie in the theatre.
This was precipitated by the fact that there has apparently been a new Nick Cave album out for some little time and I only learned this today…
