An idiosyncracy, or, a bunch of random thoughts that should never see the light of day, but I'm bored, so here we go.

In response to a query from one of my colleagues today, I want to make a list of the things I drink regularly:

Hot chocolate (in cold weather)
Apple cider (in cold weather)

Occasionally I'll drink apple juice in the mornings, and I go through phases (every other year or so) where I enjoy some gatorade.


This weekend I'm going to a Shakespeare symposium at George Washington University.  Julie Taymor is the keynote speaker AND it's free.  I'm beyond excited.


It was 50F here today, and we're supposed to wake up to 8 inches of snow in the morning.  I don't understand the weather on this side of the country.  I'll be very happy to move back home to the great state of Oregon, which leads me to my next point…


Oregonians are particularly fierce about how awesome our state is; a point that I was aware of, but that was pointed out to me again this weekend by my good pal Marshall and his lovely fiancee Tess. I feel like I should apologize for or defend this, but I don't think I need to.  Oregon is awesome.  Deal with it, everywhere else.


Or, you know, we're just drinking our own kool aid.

YOU at GWU with JULIE TAYMOR is like 3 of my top 10 things in one place!

And Oregon thanks you for the love.
