[#] [2]
i applied for the census. it sounds like a good job for a curious introvert. i took a test but the background check takes a while, so we'll see if they call me for training in a couple of weeks. but even if they don't, ohsu invited me to be a standardized patient for their end-of-term clinical exams for the 1st-year med students. whee!

in the meantime, i've had my first two primary backline shifts. the first one was pretty mellow, with two completely different calls. the second shift was really long and intense and dramatic, with two dropped calls and someone having to pretend i was her friend "megan." one woman called after she found the the nuremberg files (which i am not linking to because it is so awful), which really frightened her.

i haven't had further contact with my aunt about my mom's estate, but her lawyer recently sent a letter to me and the "surviving spouse" that she's choosing an informal probate that won't be finished until at least august.

while michaelmas was at acrl, i catsat arwen, who was happier to see me each time i visited. i'll bet she's really happy michael's home again. sven took cleo into the vet to get her nails trimmed and a cyst on her neck removed. afterwards, she was scratching it & making it bleed, so we made her wear a blue cone around her neck that she hated. fortunately, she seems to be over it now.

for fun, sven & i went to another whitebird performance and to see the play "how to disappear completely." we also watched juno (i must be the only person in the pacific northwest who doesn't like this movie), watchmen (better than i expected) and spiderwick (meh). we tried eating at several new places: blossoming lotus, dechutes brewery, lovely hula hands to celebrate jalex's birthday, the waffle window and pine state biscuits. also, i've started a new hooping class w/ the same instructor at somaspace. this intermediate class is all about transitions, and it seems so much harder!

personally, i love daylight savings time and am looking forward to the equinox this week. and i -finally- got to see comet lulin! it was just a smudge near regulus, but i was very proud (thanks for the good weather, carl!). i also modified stellarium to include comet lulin, which totally rocked. in other celestial news, saturn passed opposition, the moment it lies exactly opposite the sun in the sky (which means it rose at sunset and set at sunrise). in addition, uranus reached aphelion, the furthest it will get from the sun in its 84-year orbit. for the rest of our lives, uranus will be just a tiny bit closer every day.

No. You are not. Maybe the only person in the Pacific Northwest who didn't like it immediately after watching it.

I thought it was o.k. just after, but my antipathy for it has been growing as I've a. had time to think about the movie itself b. bumped into evidence that Diablo Cody has metastasized and c. watched it infect the rest of popular culture.

In other words, prepare to like it even less. :-)
 
well, that's a relief. i watched it as a backline research project so that when people reference it i know what they are talking about.

but i didn't feel warm towards anyone in the movie, and the times they tried to force it really made me wince. nobody seemed real and listening to the "zippy" dialogue was SO painful. cody ain't no whedon.

one of juno's minor redeeming qualities was that they treated jennifer garner's character more sympathetically than i expected.
