Today is Elayna's first day of Fifth Grade! Yay! Our little girl keeps growing up!

Today was supposed to be hella busy with course enrollment, as the technical issue we'd been waiting on had supposedly been fixed. It hasn't. So I'm hella busy with other stuff, all of which is important, but none of which is as important as course enrollment. Grr.

One thing I forgot to mention about Sky High is how damned fun the soundtrack is. The soundtrack consists of nothing but '80s covers by contemporary bands, including a nice Bowling for Soup cover of "I Melt With You," a good take on "And She Was" by Keaton Simons, and a truly superb cover of "Save it For Later" by Flashlight Brown. Highly recommended (although, as one reviewer notes, it would have been nice to see Michael Giacchino's score get some recognition).

[ profile] shadesong and I finally saw the US Women's Gymnastics Championships last night, or at least the one hour NBC allowed people to see (tape-delayed in Atlanta, since preseason football bumped it on Saturday). Quite nice. Liukin and Memmel were both phenomenal. But Alicia Sacramone's floor exercise was just a thing of beauty -- she may not have the all-around talents that the others have, but given my bias for the floor exercise anyway, her performance was easily the highlight.

Also caught Family Guy and American Dad on reruns. Anyone know if the intelligence chart from FG (showing creationists below the mentally retarded) is available anywhere as an icon?

Finally, the usual weekly administrivia reminder: I'm barely reading LJ, and with all the work stuff, not likely to be caught up until September. Likewise, I probably won't be adding new folks back until then, when I actually get breathing room to look at journals again.
