I didn't understand either, though that maybe because I didn't understand British humor at the time.

While waiting for a haircut yesterday, I picked up a November issue of Rolling Stone magazine. I was told my wait would only be about 15 minutes, so I had to choose one of two articles that intrigued me for two totally different reasons; the first was about JFK's vision for peace and the second about 80 year old Charles Manson. Being in a festive mood, I chose peace.

My choice was confirmed as a good one when on the opposite page of the article's beginning there was a full page advertisement for this:

I love Beatley moments. 

To the fountain of perpetual mirth, Let it roll for all its worth.

^^ The magazine rack at the drug store near my hairdresser's has limited space so the special Paul edition has been relegated to the back of other magazines. I pulled it out and put it front of one devoted to Miley Cyrus. ;->

I'm helping a student with a citation question, and this is a example we just found:

One Work by Three, Four, or Five Authors
For the first text citation of a work by three to five authors cite all authors.  For all subsequent citations, include only the surname of the first author followed by et al. If the work is cited more than once within the same paragraph, omit the year after the first citation.

1st Citation:
     Lennon, McCartney, Starr, and Harrison (1969) noted in their research…
2nd Citation (and further citations):
     Lennon et al. (1969) provided evidence that…
2nd Citation in same paragraph: 
     Lennon et al. found that…

Oh God I really hate all that citation stuff. We really have to do that correctly, otherwise you just get an F straight away.

Which I think is just wrong. We had some teachers a few years back that did that to students. As long as the students are showing real effort to do the citations, their grades shouldn't suffer badly due to a misplaced colon or period. It's the spirit of giving credit that should be the main focus for course work papers. Now, if you were actually submitting the paper for publication in a peer-reviewed journal, then the mechanics would be a bigger issue.

When i was in college you would automatically lose marks if your bibliography/reference section was wrongly listed and not universal throughout. Quite a few folk did, some ultimately failing.

Yeah, it's horrible.

 

Luckily some versions of Microsoft Office have options to add it correctly, all you have to do is fill in the information and it will place it in a correct way in your document.

It's called APA, isn't it?

APA when discussing citations is the style used by journals that follow the citation rules of the American Psychological Association.

MLA is for those that follow the Modern Language Association citation guidelines.

Some of the other citation styles are: Chicago, Turabian, and American Sociological Association (ASA).

Didn't realize there were more styles. We use APA.

 

Saw a vague acquintance yesterday who had new glasses. Round ones, like the ones John wore later. My mom commented on his glasses saying they were nice and he admitted that he was trying to look more like John Lennon.

 

Also, a little moment in a tv series. A guy was singing a song by the Rolling Stones in a church and an elderly woman said afterwards that she preferred the Beatles and if he could play something by them next time

I was going into the bank to pay a bill and right before I went in John's Happy Xmas (War Is Over) started playing, t'was nice

 

Also on Saturday while rushing to get to a play I heard 'Wonderful Christmas Time' in a pub. I couldn't stay around to hear it fully though :(

While flitting around town last night with my mom, I found this 2-year monthly planner at K-Mart.

I have every 2-year planner that I've used since beginning my librarian career. The theme of this one tops them all! Happiness!!!

A billboard advertisement for penny slots at a casino that reads: "Penny Lane". The picture is blurry because it was raining today.

Is the K-Mart as ghetto in your town as it is in ours? I've never seen our local K-Mart busy, black Friday notwithstanding, in all the years I've lived here. The racks are disorganized, some of the food is past its expiration date, the arcade has one working game and the other 7-8 are broken/off/out of order...

And yet, every now and then you'll find a hidden gem there, as you did with your planner.

Went to the cinema to watch a Dutch movie yesterday. It was about love and it was a bit Love Actually-ish. Anyway, at one point a friend of some guy said to him: ''But you belong together, like Lennon and McCartney''

 

There's this radio event every year called the Top2000. Everyone in the Netherlands can vote for it and it has existed for 15 years now. The Beatles have 50 songs in there, which is the most. Anyway, there's an accompanying program on television every evening and there's a bit with a man called Leo Blokhuis, who knows a lot about music and teaches us something about something music-related every evening. It could be about love triangles, plagiarism or whatever. Friday it was about Pattie Boyd, which was cool.

I go to K-Mart about twice a year. I don't even drive past it very often so I don't know how busy it usually is. But, when I do go there, I find something I just have to have. Besides the planner, I found a shirt that fit the exact specifications I have for a shirt that I want to take on my next trip to Europe. It was the only one like it in the whole store. I have an odd relationship with that store.

Speaking of relationships...

I played Here Today for my mom. I was trying to explain to her that the song is about John. She said that it couldn't be just about John because it sounded like Paul was singing it to/about a woman. What a special relationship those two men had. Beautiful.

Today, a friend took a group on a VIP tour of some Rose Parade floats, and one of the floats looked very Yellow Submariney, which I asked one of the volunteers about. So if you watch the parade Wednesday, you might catch the one I'm talking about.

Afterward, I went to a local record shop and bought Mark Shipper's Paperback Writer novel and Ringo's Liverpool 8 album on a combination USB disk/bracelet.
