The transformer on the powerline outside our house just exploded (second time in a week). I didn’t do it. I swear.
Anyway, at least it’s in the 50’s with bright sunshine today. Not a bad day to be forced outside to get some work done in the books.
I have about 25 books piled up beside my desk that I <strike>want</strike> need to read. I also have a quiz from last week that I need to grade. And I have about 1200 feed items that I need to pour through in my feed reader (Linux’s Liferea… thank God I keep an offline feed reader). And, I have a major paper that I’m trying to write to claim that the Deuteronomistic History was written very late (close to the Maccabean period) by an pro-prophetic agency (not pro-monarchical or pro-priestly). Fun stuff.
How am I blogging this you ask? Linux’s cleverly titled “Drivel” blogging program. I do most of my blogging here because it’s a clean and clear interface. If you run Ubuntu (or any Gnome distro), I highly recommend.
Gosh, I want to check my email. Oh wait… I have a smart phone!
UPDATE: Lights are back on. A squirrel was fried on top of the transformer, however. Poor squirrel.
