Evens not allowed.

I have developed an affinity for reading celebrity gossip "news" in the past few weeks. I've long glanced at ohnotheydidnt but I also started reading the Mirror and occasionally Page Six and People. They are all terribly mind-numbing, but lovely distractions from the world of politics and general adulthood.

In other fun news, I screwed up <a href=">picking up and checking out</a> my first library hold, so I have to go back to the library in the morning to fix. Self-service library book checkout machines haven't changed in all the years I've been using them, yet I managed to only deactivate the thing that triggers the alarm and not actually check it out. I am at least grateful that the DCPL has a sufficiently good online system that I can tell this.

Tonight is Miss Adams Morgan! Zach P. had asked me if I wanted to go with his krewe** about two weeks ago but I demurred because that is nowhere near enough time to shop for and assemble costume implements to compete with the other attendees. Still, Blake and I may go watch them parade into the event.

*I continue to be amazed at the traffic that community brings to LJ. And of youths, too!

**Not the exact term they used, but comparable.

I always feel a little guilty when I look at ohnotheydidnt ... but I still do it once in a while.

And I'm glad that LJ still has a community out there that's a success story!
