Mimi Smartypants–author, national treasure, and blogger since the Taft Administration–has moved off Diaryland and onto her own domain:

Ever since I set up the Infinite Summer website I have been in a WordPress frenzy, and poor Mimi sort of got caught in the whirlwind. Having completed that redesign (which consisted mostly of M. Smartypants sending emails like “Please make the site as plain and nondescript as possible, thx!”), I have turned my attention to my own, and have already imported all dy entries from Movable Type into here (hi!). Consequentially, the look of this site will probably be pretty volatile over the next few days. The theme I finally settle on will be whichever was last installed at the moment when my newfound WordPress enthusiasm abruptly sputters out (i.e., 2:52 PST on July 11th).

As for content: well, despite the fact that I appear to have embroiled myself in hoitytoity literary capital-e Event, I promise that I will continue posting here at approximately the same rate as before. Which, as you will recall, was averaging about one post per season.

Bailin’ Palin

I love that Sarah Palin peppered her resignation speech with applause lines:

If I have learned one thing: LIFE is about choices!

And one chooses how to react to circumstances. You can choose to engage in things that tear down, or build up. I choose to work very hard on a path for fruitfulness and productivity. I choose NOT to tear down and waste precious time; but to build UP this state and our country, and her industrious, generous, patriotic, free people!

It’s the feel-good quit of the summer!
