What It Is: 1/19/09

What I’m reading: Re-reading Montaigne’s “On some verses of Virgil” and a few chapters of Cultural Amnesia. Clive James just dropped the unmitigated smackdown on Walter Benjamin. (Boy, I really oughtta start watching these sometime.)

What I’m listening to: Pretty random stuff on my iTunes, as I think about compiling another Mad Mix.

What I’m watching: The 3rd season of Arrested Development, which is godawful. It’s incredible how off-the-rails the show got.

What I’m drinking: Bluecoat & tonic. And some Pacifico Clara.

What Rufus is up to: Entertaining my pal’s 3-year-old daughter, and missing another Sunday hike, thanks to the snow.

Where I’m going: Nowhere special. Although I may take today off to celebrate my black heritage, and drive into NYC to catch Synecdoche, New York.

What I’m happy about: My wife has her first commercial photo shoot today! (Also, the Eagles lost in the NFC Championship game. Again. And my wife & I had a great belated birthday dinner at Chef’s Table on Saturday.)

What I’m sad about: Will nobody think of the poor birds? (Just kidding: awesome job on landing that Airbus in the Hudson, although it would’ve been even more amazing if he could’ve landed on the deck of the Intrepid.)

What I’m pondering: Selling my 15″ Macbook Pro and using this 13″ Macbook Air as my laptop.
