a day in the ruts

Pretty quiet day around the burrow. Bagged up and disposed of trash, did dishes, baked bread, made pasta, and spent a lot of time playing Civicrack. Not bad for a day that didn't really start until around 1130 on account of late-night driving with P (who is very impressed by the Optima) and staying up late to read March to the Stars. I need to get out of the habit of reading interesting things when I go to bed.

Interesting links: Using nuclear weapons to help identify fake whiskey. Alexandria Democrats beclown themselves over newly-elected black conservative councilwoman Alicia Hughes. Best scene" from the best Star Trek series ever. (Moe Lane) The Other McCain tees off on the Washington Post for doing a shitty job of local news reporting, and sees in this failure a big reason why big media is going out of business.

what to write about and why

Question for the f-list: if you're going to write about yourself, should you be completely, unflinchingly honest, or sanitize it for awkwardness?
Also, where does one draw the line between a mind-numbing recitation of daily trivia and a rather brief but still confusing precis, such as what one might find in a resume? Consider that a good part of the potential audience has no idea what you've been up to for the last thirty-two years.
