Pulp fictions

The Stepford Wives is a creepy ass book.

A really creepy ass book.

And the nod to Disney was just over the top. What continues to amaze me is that, even though I already knew the story and how it ends, the book was still creepy as hell. I'm impressed, Ira Levin. Good job.

Every semester break...

I have 13 days of vacation left. I'm going to read something, dammit.

New Years Resolutions

It always seems that the harder I push myself academically, the more I neglect myself physically. So, to prevent my muscles from going into atrophy when I get to grad school, this year (or at least this semester) I am going to do yoga at least twice a week and go for a long walk on the weekends.

I am also going to drink more water and eat more fruits and vegetables.

Timmy will be laying off the puddings and sticking to his high protein diet of mealworms.

Oberon will continue to nap and strive harder to insert himself in my lap, preventing me from seeing my computer screen, much less reaching the keyboard. He says he doesn't want me to get carpal tunnel. Right.
