Happy Monday evraybody. Today was one of those freakishly warm summer days around here. I say freakish because it's more normal for this end of the peninsula to have the famous fog June through late August, giving way in the fall to our most beautiful weather. Anyway I had to drive around in the heat this afternoon running errands, luckily I got parking spaces and when the meters ran out, hey no tickets yay!! Believe me ya gotta take yer small victories where you can around here.

Tonight I'll be late, my book club scheduled a meeting for Monday night though usually we're on Wednesday or Thursday. We read the book discussed in the beginning of this article which I greatly recommend, both the book and the article, though they are very sad. and long.

On to the Craig. For the next couple of weeks we'll have new but previously recorded shows while the new studio is being put together. I'm happy for Craig that he gets a better studio, but I'm curious about just what he'll do with the bigger space. More room to dance and goof around I should think.

Tonight's scheduled guests are actress Emma Roberts and comedienne Paula Poundstone. Ms. Roberts has been in a bunch of movies I never heard of. Her claim to fame seems to be as the niece of Julia, poor thing. I mean she played Nancy Drew!  Ms. Poundstone, well even I know who she is. Wikipedia says she does sex wrong. Poor thing.

I can't find a video of last last Friday night. Maybe it'll be found when I get back home. Gotta run.

More Tagging tips:

A tag is a way to search for this diary. If someone is searching for "Barack Obama," is this a diary they'd be trying to find?

Use a person's full name, without any title. Senator Obama may become President Obama, and Michelle Obama might run for office.

If your diary covers an election or elected official, use election tags, which are generally the state abbreviation followed by the office. CA-01 is the first district House seat. CA-Sen covers both senate races. NY-GOV covers the New York governor's race.

Tags do not compound: that is, "education reform" is a completely different tag from "education". A tag like "reform" alone is probably not meaningful.

Consider if one or more of these tags fits your diary: Civil Rights, Community, Congress, Culture, Economy, Education, Elections, Energy, Environment, Health Care, International, Labor, Law, Media, Meta, National Security, Science, Transportation, or White House. If your diary is specific to a state, consider adding the state (California, Texas, etc). Keep in mind, though, that there are many wonderful and important diaries that don't fit in any of these tags. Don't worry if yours doesn't.
