SNOW FLURRIES.  IN FLORIDA.

Yes, yes, I know many of you live in places that have snow up the ying-yang. Indulge me. XD

So I was in the middle of making dinner (which involved setting wine on fire, don't ask), when I heard my phone ping in the "you've got an email" sort of way. I, being a curious creature, checked the email. I was less thrilled when I saw that it came from my "srs biznis" account, and figured it was spam.

It was this instead:

Dear [Bunneh],


Please accept this email as official confirmation of acceptance of your proposal for the Ninth Biennial Conference of the International Gothic Association: Monstrous Media/Spectral Subjects. We will be contacting individually those of you who submitted two proposals or who have offered non-conventional sessions very shortly.

We are delighted to report that the response to the CFP was far in excess of expectations. As a result we are anticipating the conference will be an extremely exciting event, with around 200 participants: the largest International Gothic Association conference to date. However, as a result it has taken longer than we anticipated to process the proposals, and we apologise for any inconvenience caused by this delay.

We will be posting a draft programme and registration details on the website within the next few weeks, and will alert you by email when we have done so. Please also see the website for the most up-to-date conference news. Lancaster is a campus-based university situated a couple of miles from the town, and the conference package will reflect that by being fully inclusive. When making travel arrangements, we ask you to bear in mind that we will be providing on-campus, bed-and-breakfast accommodation as part of the conference package. This will be the most convenient and cost-effective form of accommodation available; however, you will be able to opt out of this element of the registration fee should you live nearby or wish to make other plans.

We are operating a reserve list, so we would be grateful if you could respond to this email to confirm that you still intend to attend the conference. We also hope to post abstracts on the web in advance of the conference, and if you do NOT wish your abstract to be published in this way, we ask that you indicate this.

We are very excited about what looks as if it's going to be a highly memorable occasion, and we look forward to meeting you all in July!


And then there was a lot of flailing and freaking out and... I probably screwed up my port reduction BUT I WILL LEARN TO LIVE WITH IT.

Oh, my GOD, they liked it. Holy shit.

...Mortal terror is gonna set in ANY SECOND NOW, I just know it.
wordinista: (AAAHHHHHHHHHHHH!)

wordinista: (ARGH!)

I really need to be working on my research paper, but financial news is EATING MY BRAIN.

And Barney Frank really, really needs not to be implying that people criticizing Congress's lousy financial decisions are racist. (Isn't that some variation on Snacky's Law?) Granted, the Community Reinvestment Act is just a part of a much larger problem, but, come on, Barney.  That's no way for House Financial Services Committee Chair to act.  I know he's pointing the finger at the GOP, but given that, according to a recent Rasmussen Poll, something like 59% of voters polled would have no problem voting out the entire Congress and starting over again, that implies to me that pointing fingers (and basically calling your critics racists) is the dumbest thing to do right now.

This whole mess is nauseating. Did no one learn ANYTHING from Enron, Tyco, and Arthur Andersen?  ARGH!  STOP.  BEING.  STUPID.  RECKLESS.  IRRESPONSIBLE.  JERKFACES.  These people are ostensibly intelligent!  THEY SHOULD KNOW BETTER.

And I have a feeling this whole thing's going to get uglier.   That's a serious conflict of interest, right there.  Pair that with the youtube video going around where Frank asserts there's nothing wrong with FM/FM, and you've got the equation for some serious facepalming.  Is this what happens when you put a lawyer in charge of finances?  He's a Harvard Law grad, right?  Or am I remembering someone else?

*checks* 

Yup, Harvard Law.  I would seriously love to know how a background in law qualifies Senator Frank for being the Chair of the HFSC.  I've looked at his biography, and... if he's got any background in economics or finance, it's well hidden. 


Aaaaaaaaaand now back to my paper.  (Guys, diversity management is fucking awesome.  I really kind of love HR.)


EDIT:  Yup, still eating my brain.  I'm starting to wonder if these CEOs think they're playing with Monopoly money. Seriously, what the hell -- you're going to shell out twenty MILLION DOLLARS on "special payments" for departing executives four days before you declare bankruptcy?

This made me laugh harder than I have in a week:

Bad day? CLICK AND READ.
