I have been useless, today.


But I'm doing some genealogy work--on my mother's father's side. I was told his family were second or third generation immigrants from Poland. That was hte whole reason I *did* Poland for my country report and international fair at school in the fifth grade. I'm now in the ninth century and the closest anybody has gotten to Poland is one Italian noble chick who some relative of Henry III arranged to marry an Englishman. You can't swing a dead cat without hitting an Englishman on this tree. Seriously, one of these d00ds' names is "Lancelot"... Another few are called "Thurston"... Back this far there are some Vikings in northern France, but that's only to be expected from a bunch of Englishmen.

But this is getting a little irritating and the ppl aren't renown enough to double-check my work on wikipedia ; which is part of what's so interesting--finding out the relationships and the backstory and learning about the places.

So I think I'll abandon this twig, soon, and move to another...

Also, I did not call back about the interview. I'll try to do that tomorrow. But I can't be sure, because I am currently being useless. And pissy about my weight.

Meh, I woke up suddenly on my own this morning following another marginally weird dream after about five hours of sleep... so now I'm really sleepy... but I just ate an hour ago... meh...
