Miscellaneous nonsense.

Throughout the week I keep a file open in BBEdit with a draft of whatever my next entry here will be. I write something almost every day for it. Most of the time I delete whatever it was without posting, on the grounds that it's too boring. Today, I don't delete it! Today you suffer! And then thank me for deleting it all normally.

I almost always think out loud about the week's workouts. Collapse )

I cannot for the life of me remember why I typed this up, but I did. I think it had something to do with somebody on ffrants whinging that it's overly-restrictive to define a drabble as 100 words exactly. But that's the point, dude. Collapse )

Am contemplating cutting back the frequency of giles_watchers posts to Sunday / Wednesday / Friday. The fandom is slowing down, friends. Pardon me while I weep quietly. I'll be here to turn out the lights.

You can find all the Top Gear soundtrack choices identified in this forum. It's interesting to me how electronic dance & ambient music has taken over TV and advertising soundtracks, even in the US where the tattered remains of radio is still playing classic rock 24/7.

Have been seeing scenes from both Reconnection and That Big-Bang Highgate Cemetery story in my head during quiet moments. I think I'm ready to write again.

Random: Tom Lehrer's "The Elements" (sung to a possibly recognizable tune), in Dutch, with Dutch stereotypical mad German scientists. (Why are all mad scientists German?)
