How fandom is helping me get to the gym

Wednesday, February 25th, 2015

February has been a tough month for my gym attendance. I’ve been searching for ways to motivate me to get there at least once more before March — something strong enough to overcome the dual hurdles of 1) it’s cold; and 2) I could be sleeping. Yesterday, I was driving to work, listening to the […]

Weekend Trip, Day 2/2

Monday, September 6th, 2010

Highlights of the Day 1. Flip side of a low river: walking out on the rocks in the gorge — very, very cool, although I could hear my mom’s voice in my head the whole time. (“Be careful! Don’t go too far! Watch the water level!” It could be dangerous!”) Thanks Mom! I felt much […]

I complained to my family that driving is *soooooo* boring (even though I really have nothing to complain about; it’s not that far), and *Andrea suggested podbooks. Asunder is […]

fic + audio

Thursday, January 10th, 2008

The great thing about audiofic is that (supposedly) you can listen to it and do something else at the same time. That never really works for me, unless lying on the floor and staring at the ceiling counts as “something.” Still, it’s fun, and summertea has a great voice. String Theory, a Violin Concerto in […]
