this should really be two posts I have lots to share. first, a video (my very first upload to the youtubes!) from a brief foray into full-on nerddom yesterday evening:

I'm sure there are many options with better quality (and, uh, the first line of the song--I didn't start digging in my bag for my camera until he announced the surprise guest) in the "related videos" section, but hey! first youtube posting! I'm very excited.

updated to add: yes, that IS a nintendo DS someone is waving (in the air, like he just doesn't care) off to my left. it was that kind of convention.

second, say hello to my little friend:

her name is sabrina and I brought her home this afternoon and I already love her to pieces. I will do my best not to send you photos of every single cute thing she ever does, but no promises.

modeling gig update

They sent me copies of the pictures. They're all pretty much like this... but enjoy:

PS, I have given up on corresponding my post labels with reality

I guess it would be crass to title this "When I Fall"...

Wow, sucks to be a Barenaked Lady:

Ed Robertson involved in small-plane crash

(lookee! I'm blogging again! from my wireless internet! whee! now, if only my furniture would arrive, like they said it would... sigh...)

see? excel can be fun!

I would like spreadsheets way more if I got to make graphs like these:

song chart memes

song chart memes

song chart memes

more here...and I know how I'll be spending the evening. olympics? what olympics?

(also, is this meta? I don't know if it is, but I'll tag it as such anyway.)

dr. horrible, part 2?

...okay, not really. but it IS another video of NPH dancing and singing. love. him.

on a side note, what's with disabling the embedding? this appears to be the official youtube outlet for sesame street videos, so why make it difficult for the kiddies to share?

also, while I hesitate to overuse the "awesome" tag, I believe mr. harris deserves his very own tag, as he has of late personified awesomeness.

oh, and while I'm thinking of joss whedon (NPH --> dr. horrible --> joss whedon), I was recently introduced to the short-lived television series firefly and I recommend that all of you check it out. if you're turned off by the whole "futuristic western set in space" thing, the always funny alan tudyk (also known as the pirate from "dodgeball") and the very, very attractive nathan fillion make it more than worth watching.
