Last Days of Yesterday

For the last few days, I've had Rainbow Connection and Dayenu stuck in my head, so I've been looking for every version of each I can find. Some of them are pretty bizarre. There are versions of Dayenu in Ladino, Hebrew, and Yiddish. The Yiddish and Hebrew have pretty much the same melody (and I prefer the sound of Yiddish over Hebrew, although that may be because I can mostly understand Yiddish), but the Ladino is very different. Rainbow Connection has also been done in every way imaginable, which is quite cool.

I am amused at people who believe in reasonability, and that disagreements are all resolvable if people would just be reasonable. It's almost as dishonest a term as "rationality" is. I am embarassed at the way I once used the term. I suppose much of the clarity offered to me by my value theory, and then by studying how that affects dialogue, has similarly made much of what I said before seem silly to me.

This weekend, I helped a friend move. It was reasonably enjoyable. I am also experimenting with facial hair. In a few days, I'll take a pic of myself with mustache/beard.
