*Last night, I learned that I received one more BBAW Award nomination – Best Commenter! And that one does not go through a panel, so I will be asking for your votes between September 7 and 12! (Every little bit helps, but I know who deserves to win that one…and she’s a regular commenter here.)
Anyway, posting during the next couple of weeks may be much less frequent than usual, in the interest of preserving a sliver of my sanity (not that I have much more than that anyway). Maybe I shouldn’t worry so much about it, though; according to this, blog post frequency isn’t that important any more.
NONE – can you believe it? It’s been one of those weeks where I’ve barely kept up with the blogs I already read, so never mind discovering any new ones!

Granted, I was a bit disillusioned that my university’s Job Placement Office didn’t actually “place” you in a job – but then I realized that getting a job was my job. Apparently, the graduate who is suing her college because she’s still unemployed doesn’t quite get that…(original news story)

“Highway Robbery,” via Not Always Right:
|You Should Watch a Drama|
You are thoughtful, philosophical, and introspective. People fascinate you.
You crave drama in everyday life, and it’s probably better for you to sometimes get it from a movie!
You’re the type of person who can talk for hours, and you never mind a movie that’s heavy on the dialog.
We’ll need to start it early, though, or I’ll fall asleep before it’s over!
Enjoy your weekend – there’s not much summertime left!
