Someone on the Costello-l discussion list actually has *a tape of the man taking a shit*.

OK, so it wasn't deliberate (bootleg tape of concert still running by mistake, ran into Elvis in the toilet, etc), but what absolutely *kills* me is that he still OWNS the TAPE and has it marked 'not for trade'!!!

Wow. The sheer absurdity of it all is quite, quite stunning. :)

I have a new job. It is relatively cruisy. It has four weeks' holiday a year. It is making me think: do I actually *want* a job that challenges me mentally? Wouldn't it be nicer just to sit here and surf the web and get paid?

I am fundamentally a lazy person. Why would I want to write 300,000 words?

It's my Midwinter I'm Going to Give Up My Ph.D. phase. I should recognise it by now, I suppose. Although it's particularly compelling, this time around.

I'm seeing Blondie! I'm seeing Blondie! In the Civic! (Kiwis will realise the joy inherent in the words 'the Civic', but for others: an opulent 1929 wackily orientalist ex-silent-movie palace, with golden elephant light fixtures, flashing-eyed lions on either side of the stage, and a ceiling which looks like a brilliantly starry sky with clouds moving across it when the lights go down. Aaaaahhhh.)

I don't care if they're old and we'll have to sit through dodgy new songs. I wish to gaze upon Debbie with adoration, and upon Clem with awe at his overdrumming. I *love* overdrumming. And they haven't been here since *1978*. Yay!

Oh my god, this is retardedly cute. Well, it is for dorks like me, anyway. Imagine the possibilities!

OK, I know I said the others were, but *this* is actually the best library patron name ever. Brace yourself:

Curly Wang.

Apparently I am not the only library-working New Zealand blogger. Cross-referencing, yo.

Oh, and Grizelda. Nothing more, nothing less. Just Grizelda. Like Cher, if you please.

They didn't waste any time! In the New Zealand Herald employment classifieds, 'prostitutes required'. That's *great*!!!
