If you haven’t heard yet, Blogger went down Thursday (can you imagine the scene at Google trying to fix that?). Since I wish I had two more days off anyway, let’s pretend it’s Friday and I’ll give you some bullet points.

1. Yesterday was the birthday of L. Frank Baum and Utah Phillips.

2. I am enjoying the “this is the universe” blog and its URL: ohscience.tumblr.com. Oh science, indeed.

3. I am looking forward to spending some time with my Russian boyfriend during a Met broadcast of Il Trovatore this week.
