I don't really know what I am musing on these days. It's more like an irregular stream of consciousness thing...it seems to be working.

Officially Decrepit

A) Going to a commuter campus means very challenging to find parking. So your old ass has to walk a lot farther. Which, come to think of it, is probably best for it. Moving on.
B) There is nothing like walking around a college campus to make you feel old as dirt.
C) I was picking up my actual library card at the SJSU main library and the infant student worker behind the counter went "mumble mumble mumble LIS?". I stared at her blankly, and said "Um...", to which she replies "mumble mumble library mumble mumble INFORMATION mumble SCIENCE?". I thought she was asking about whether the right program was going on my card, or something, so I said "ah, yes, LIS? That's...fine?". She then gets a bit frothy and says, "NO! I was asking if you liked the program!".

All I could think was, "Young lady, you are going to HAVE to speak up!"


*We did, for the record, have a nice conversation about the program after I recovered enough to joke about my lack of caffeine*

Irony, You're Doing It Right

You have probably seen the coverage of the arrest and threatened deportation of the Nazi war crimes suspect in Cleveland. The best part is the comment by his lawyer:

"You have an 89-year-old man with various physical ailments, and you have eight guys from [Immigrations and Customs Enforcement] trying to stuff him into a wheelchair to send him to Germany. This looks like something taking place in Germany and not in the United States."

Ummmm....yes, that's *rather the point*, isn't it, Poindexter? Methinks someone slept through the "World War II" part of history class. Jerk.
