Babysitting sleeping babies is easy.

hardest part of tonight is trying to get some work done when the options for entertainment abound...  cable television, a really fun novel, and superfast internet, plus jackson, who is ridiculously cute and fun puppy dog.  i have work to do!!!

listening to:
Symphony No. 3 In E Flat Major ("Eroica"), Op. 55: IV. Finale, Allegro Molto
performed by: Roger Norrington 
on pandora :) unresistingly beautiful.

here's some interesting things i looked at on the internet today:
an HIV testing machine the size of an Ipod for testing in rural communities, article from popularscience

also from popsci check out this gallery from the 2010 toy fair

i remember a book i used to read today, in the night kitchen by maurice sendak

i want a copy of it, very much!

let me close with a silly joke i like.  my mum is a broke doctor, and my father  well off lawyer:

So, a doctor and a lawyer meet at a party…

Lawyer-cartoonTheir conversation was interrupted repeatedly by guests asking the doctor for medical advice. Finally, the exasperated doctor turned to the lawyer and said, “Tell me, what do you do to stop people from asking you for legal advice when you’re out of the office?”
“When they ask, I give them advice”, replied the lawyer, “and then I send them a bill in the morning.”
The doctor decided to take the lawyer’s advice and for the rest of the evening wrote down the names and addresses of everyone who approached him for advice. The next morning he took out the list, just as his secretary walked into his office and handed him a bill from the lawyer.
