A bit of randomness

I really don't have time to be blogging — I should be packing or cleaning — but here I am. Here's the random stuff I have to share:

* My hair is longer than it's been in a long time. And by long, I mean long for me. But I have lost all patience with blow-drying it because I know it will end up in a ponytail shortly after I get to work. I'm getting it cut next week, and I'm literally counting down the days.

* I just finished the book Little Bee by Chris Cleave. I can't say much about it (the back cover actually tells you nothing and to tell nothing to friends). But it's about an African refugee and a British magazine editor. Go get it from your library or bookstore, it is a really good book.

* The president is coming! The president is coming! Pretty much what I'm hearing everywhere I go. Obama will be across the street from my office this evening, campaigning for a congressman. Downtown is going to be insane, but it makes me glad I walk to work. Fortunately, I'm working an earlier shift and have planned my escape route. (Oh and I'm ready for the election to be over. The commercials are bad enough, but I also got cornered by a campaign volunteer this week.)

And I'll just end with this photo of a tree outside my house. I'm looking forward to a weekend where I'll be disconnected and enjoying the beauty of fall!
