I can't believe how much this new Animal Collective album has messed me up. It's just so so so so very. It changes everything. I can only speak in cliches, so I better shut up about it.

Man, I'm running ragged these days. Kids are waking up at night, both of em, and I'm over my head with school trying to prepare a novel unit. I've had two kids getting up in the night--these days it's June who's the worst, telling us she's cold, she needs to tinkle, etc. She even made C change her pj's last night.

Hyper-speed dating

I was just reading some blogger's post about speed dating and it gave me an idea for hyper-speed dating, because for most people, you don't even need to actually meet and talk to know whether the date should continue.

In h-speed dating, you only need to look at the participants for a few moments each before deciding whether to continue with the "date." Who are the participants? Anyone you look at. In a bar, on a bus, you could rip through dozens of people in a matter of minutes. It sounds rather efficient to me. Maybe I should try to trademark that name.
