Quick answer: A

As we all now know, a strike was avoided, thank goodness. I lost sleep, but now I don't have to procrastinate over another project.

Tonight is my firm's holiday party. I hardly know anyone except those from my department, and frankly, I want to get away from squares who are perpetuating the librarian stereotype. I plan to try bourbon & coke, or bourbon & ginger ale. Maybe even both. Zeebah and I can sit back and snicker as people around us create gossip for tomorrow. And there'll be hors d'oeuvres! Not just pigs in blankets, mind you, but serious hoity-toity party food. Woo hoo!

Trains of thought The original headline today was going to be "Loop de Loop." Having no idea how it's spelt (yes I'm feeling pompous and Anglicized today), I thought I'd try a dictionary. That didn't work, so I went over to Google. The answer still eludes me at present, but the journey was not unfruitful, as listed below.

The lyrics to a childrens' song "Loop de Loop" (aka "Looby Loo" - how horrid).

loop-d-loop. Teva Durham knits wearable sculpture. Her neckpieces are really makin' me bug.

And lastly, I learned of this through random blog-hopping:

Girl Power! A 17- year-old slip of a girl, catches a would-be burglar and keeps him hogtied until the police arrive. (Link via b-may)

Aha! Girl power indeed. Glad that the strike was avoided, for your sake!

i would highly recommend a vanila flavored vodka (stolis is the best) and ginger ale! it goes down much better than bourbon and tastes like a cream soda!
