This Moment Meme

Maggie says:
Feeling more m-pyrical than m-pyre today. Must be that 3 a.m. bedtime. Yawn. Here's some nonsense to share. M2? Everyone else?

1. Open the book nearest you to page 23. What is the fifth sentence on that page?
"The larger world perceives few differences among us, so our efforts to distinguish ourselves from each other only split us - they do not convince other people that our way is the right way."
- Stir it Up: Lessons in Community Organizing and Advocacy, Rinku Sen

2. What lyrics are you hearing at this moment?
When I see you sky as a kite
As high as I might
I can't get that high
The how you move
The way you burst the clouds
it makes me want to try
- The Cure, "High"

3. In your browser's list of blog links, what's the first blog? The fifth?
M-pyre's first, of course. Fifth is Duke City Fix.

4. The last person I spoke to was...

5. Right now, I'd rather be...

6. Later on, I'll be...
Having drinks and dinner at Pearl's with Marjorie, Mikaela, and the hottest new mom around, Miss Joann

1. These bottom-fermented brews require up to six weeks or more of storage at cool temperatures (Lagern is German for 'to store').

2. 'It's hard to believe we need a place called hell'

3. I have no blogs in my browsers. (It's worse than it sounds)

4. Done with my project

5. Having drinks with Moc and trying to keep him away from 'Gilmore Girls'

1. A good sparkling wine, Arbois Mousseux, is made by the Method Champenoise from Chardonnay grapes.--Wine Lover's Companion

2. Look out of any window, any morning, any evening, any day.
Maybe the sun is shining, birds are singing,
No rain is falling from a heavy sky.
What do you want me to do, to do for you to see you through?
For this is all a dream we dreamed one afternoon, long ago.
--Box of Rain, by The Grateful Dead

3. Don't have a list of blogs.

4. J.D.

5. Well, doing what I'm doing now...because I ought to be working on something else.

6. Sleeping.

1. "They concentrated more on sex roles, relationships, and family survival than expressive cultures."

2. "Love is the answer
At least for most of the questions in my heart
Why are we here and where do we go
And how come it's so hard
It's not always easy and sometimes life can be deceiving
I'll tell you one thing
It's always better when we're together"

3. My browser doesn't have a list of blogs (I'm not that techno-cool, wah!), but in my list of bookmarks, Albuquerque Interactive GIS is first, and Albuquerque/Bernalillo Public Library is fifth. SUCH a nerd!

4. Marjorie (unless Cleo counts, and then, Cleo)

5. Writing my thesis (who's a nerd? who is?)

6. Writing my thesis (I am. I am.)

1. "It is a paradoxical geometry."

2. "I'm thinking it's a sign / that the freckles in our eyes are mirror images / and when we kiss they're perfectly aligned..." (the Iron & Wine version, not the Postal Service's)

3. I, too, lack a list of blog links. In my favorites list, Rocksquawk is currently first; the Fix is fifth (Maggie, maybe we DO share a brain...)

4. Nancy at New Mexico Kids Magazine

5. I'm pretty content at the moment.

6. Snoozin'.

Hey, Jessie. Musical ignoramus here.

Which is the version on Garden State?

I LOVE that song and would like all the versions I can get my hands on.

Maybe you'd be interested in making m-pyre an m-pyrical CD mix?

Huh? Huh? Wanna? Dontcha wanna?

Yep, that's the version. It's originally a Postal Service song, I believe (though I've never heard their version).
[soapbox]I'm very disappointed in Mr. Sam Beam right now for selling the song to M&M's. Now, I love sub-standard chocolate coated in crunchy food coloring just as much as the next gal, but I never pegged that particular sensitive male artist to sell out.[/soapbox]

Hmmm... mix CD. Perhaps we should get together to discuss music over, say, a pint or three to get me started...

1. "The pulse maintains the sharp interface and its shape throughout the calculation."

2. None- it is the KUNM classical music morning show.

3. Well- I have them sitting as pasted short cuts on a portable hardrive so there is nothing like that on my office PC... but there is M-pyre first, and Mjae third.

4. My boss, peter.

5. Tooling through the forest- sweating, hearing nothing, and avoiding contact between big ants and my ass.

6. finishing the last 70 pages of a book I bought in DC yesterday.

Crazy's a bit of an understatement -- I hit 40 hrs on the clock this week by Wednesday evening. I do, however, have a real weekend all to myself (yahoo!). I have some tentative plans for the next few days, but nothing's been confirmed--how 'bout tonight or tomorrow? Do you have my number?
