Troubling

Today at Rebecca's house I saw a news report about how Americans are boycotting French cheese and wine and perfume as a reaction against the French anti-war stance. I'm halfamused/outraged and half distressed over it. Because, come on! Boycotting French luxury goods? Honestly! And then also becuase, oh god, this is what French news-watchers have as their image of Americans. Somewhere in my head there is a voice telling me that they know we don't all feel like that. But still, it's unsettling.

Moss is coming in just a hair over two days. My nerves are having a field day. I feel slightly ill. It will be okay. it will be more than okay. it will be wonderful. I'm scared out of my mind.

I'm trying to sort out tracks for a cd of songs that mean a lot to me for one reason or another. Some of them surprise me. But it all ends up making sense. Once it's ready, perhaps I'll post the commentary here.

I have far too much grading and cleaning and laundry to do. I keep sort of putting it all off. It's no good.

Next time, I promise I'll be peppy. Peppier, at least.
