Snapshot for Thursday, 26 May 2005:

Another new "feature" for this blog I've been playing around with in my head is doing a periodic "snapshot" of what I'm thinking about, reading, watching, listening to, etc. Just for the heck of it, I guess. So...since I don't have Christian Guzman or Claudio Vargas to complain about we go!

I am...

thinking about... messy my desk has become here at the office. I mean...jeeze! How did it get this way? Why have I done absolutely nothing to correct the problem? How do I actually find anything in here?
...why did it take me so long to discover the random "next blog" feature on Blogger-based weblogs? Fascinating. I don't know if it's really random or not, but I've spent the last few days just going to next blog over and's sort of like getting in a car and making the decisions at random. Okay...maybe that's a bit of a stretch, see what I mean. The last few I've come across, for the record:
Red Viking
Arbitrary Aardvark
This Is Not My Life

(btw...I highly recommend the bottom one...I've actually bookmarked it for the future...if nothing else, b/c it has introduced me to the fascinating/disturbing blogs: Ask Blog Jesus and 81 Vaginas )

listening to...
...The Pretenders
...Reel Big Fish (don't ask...don't ask...)
...Ben Folds (still - concert was almost three weeks ago...still listening)

am reading...
...A Long Way Down, by Nick Hornby (taking my time with it...still not out in the US yet - awesome...might be my favorite of all his novels, believe it or not)
...Helliconia Spring, by Brian Aldiss (about halfway through...a book for Metro until the Hornby is done)
...May's issues of The New Yorker
...May's issue of The Believer

am watching...
...not least until the fall. :-( Loved the season finale...will be tough to wait for the next season

So...there you go...
