Currently: The Brains And Feet Edition

Current clothes: Khaki-colored shorts. A t-shirt from The Planetary Society; it's black, and features a false-color picture of a spiral galaxy, with an upward-looking human silhouetted against it and the words "Is Anyone Out There?" across it. White socks. No shoes.

Current mood: Not bad. Sort of mellow. I'd say "sleepy," but given how late I slept today, I refuse to believe I can be sleepy right now, so "mellow" it is.

Current music: Not much music lately, really. I've mostly been listening to a bunch of podcasts.

Current annoyance: My stupid human body. Not only am I suffering from Little Mermaid Foot Syndrome, but while I was cooking dinner earlier, my cornea apparently tried to fall off again. I've had that suddenly happen when I first open my eyes in the morning, but never randomly between blinks like that. Fortunately, the pain didn't last long once I got some liquid flowing over my eyeball. Unfortunately, that is some capital-P Pain, let me tell you.

Current thing: I don't know. I may be sort of thing-less at the moment. Or maybe I have many small and uninteresting things.

Current desktop picture: The stars in Orion's Belt. I've been having trouble settling on one I want to keep lately, though. I might change it again.

Current book: Day One: Before Hiroshima and After by Peter Wyden. It's a book about colorful people doing fascinating things with incredibly important global implications, so I don't know why it keeps sort of making my eyes glaze over, but it does.

Current song in head: "Re: Your Brains" by Jonathan Coulton. I've been on something of a zombie kick lately, I think.

Current DVD in player: Disc two of season 4 of The Pretender. Yes, I am still slowly watching through this series, and still enjoying it beyond all rationality or reason. Even if the last episode I watched did have some images that I suspect may have scarred me for life. I also have the first disc of season ten of South Park in the other DVD player, because it was my on-the-treadmill show until I had to stop due to aforementioned Mermaid Foot.

Current refreshment: Just finished some tea.

Current worry: Mostly that this stupid foot isn't going to improve as quickly as I would like. Also that zombies will eat my brains, because that's a lot more fun to worry about.

Current thought: I've been trying to decide whether I want to go and see the Star Trek movie tomorrow. It seems like everybody and their pet sehlat is rushing out to see it this weekend, which means I'm already feeling left out of a lot of conversations. And it's been getting astonishingly positive responses, which is making me curious to see it and form my own opinion. (I'm still kind of secretly hoping that I'll hate it, but that's looking less and less likely.) I really don't know if I feel like driving all the way up to the theater in Los Lunas, though. Sometimes it's deeply annoying, living in the middle of nowhere.
