How Are We A Week Into July Already?! Oh, Well. Have A Meme.

Current clothes: Black "Skeptics Society" t-shirt, with the words "SCIENCE RULES" in big letters on the back. Blue jeans. White socks. Black belt. Black sneakers.

Current mood: Not bad.

Current music: It's mostly been random tracks and podcasts lately, really.

Current annoyance: The first thing that pops into my head involves Doctor Who spoilers, so I'll instead mention the second thing, which is that my back and neck muscles keep stiffening up while I'm asleep. I'm inclined to blame the giant cat, as I frequently find myself waking up contorted into strange positions around him.

Current thing: I'm... not sure I have one.

Current desktop picture: The M81 Galaxy Group Through the Integrated Flux Nebula. Man, the Astronomy Picture of the Day is still the very bestest place to find pretty wallpapers.

Current book: The Secret Life of Houdini: The Making of America's First Superhero by William Kalush and Larry Sloman. I'm only a few chapters in, but I'm enjoying it a lot. Houdini, apparently, was a really interesting guy who led a really interesting life. And he could do the most astonishing things. He's got to go on the list of performers to see when I get my time machine working.

Current song in head: It appears to be "Solsbury Hill" by Peter Gabriel.

Current DVD in player: Futurama: The Beast with a Billion Backs. Which I enjoyed, although mainly, I think, because I went into it with lowered expectations, friends having warned me that it wasn't as good as the previous Futurama DVD movie (which it wasn't), and that it had some weird characterization discontinuities with the previous one, too (which it did). Still fun, though.

Current refreshment: Tea.

Current worry: You know, right now I can't seem to be bothered worrying about even the stuff I probably ought to be worried about.

Current thought: Hey, it looks like we might be getting rain!


  1. What Doctor Who spoilers?

  2. Certain aspects of the season finale annoyed me. I'm not discussing the details here. Come back in four and a half weeks for the discussion post and I'll tell you. :)

  3. Does it involve an annoying character.
