Did anyone see Bones last night? I fell asleep before the identity of the murderer was revealed. So : whodunit?

Update, Sat. morn. 10.30 am : Okay, so now I've seen the episode in its entirety online, and I still don't get it. The ending was a bit too hastily contrived, and I still don't get the motive for the killing. I must be dense.

News of the world

Well. It's a step down from Messiah.

It's a bit like giving the Literature Prize to Rod McKuen, no? Or to Henry Gibson's rhymester character from Laugh-In?

The article notes that the nomination deadline for the 2009 Peace Prize was February 1st. Twelve days after January 20th.

Thursday note, late afternoon

Well! The interview seems to have gone fairly well. Unless I deceive myself, there are reasons for optimism. One more hurdle remains. (I know, I'm still being vague.)

Pleasant weather in this part of the world today. A bit windy and cool this morning. Lower sixties now.

Not a bad day. And evening approaches, accompanied by a considerable sense of relief. Deo gratias.

Wednesday evening note

This blog's anniversary (the seventh, to be precise) is tomorrow. Hurrah, etc.! Let joy be unconfined!

Also, I have an important appointment tomorrow. A sort of interview. Wish me luck! Or, better yet, send a prayer or two heavenward on my behalf.

Sunday note

It hasn't been the smoothest, or the happiest, or the most fun, last two weeks. One sizable calamity and several minor frustrations. But things might be looking up, a bit. Am being intentionally vague here so as not to "jinx" myself. But more on this, perhaps, later.
