What It Is: 5/18/09

What I’m reading: Arcadia, by Tom Stoppard, George Sprott: 1894-1975, by Seth, Yoshihiro Tatsumi’s Abandon the Old in Tokyo.

What I’m listening to: The soundtrack to the Life Aquatic, and a new Mad Mix I’m assembling.

What I’m watching: Bottle Shock, some Yankees games, and some game 7s in the NBA semis.

What I’m drinking: An awesome Prosecco on Saturday night, to go with Bottle Shock.

What Rufus is up to: Well, he’s a little disappointed that we didn’t get out to the semi-annual greyhound picnic on Sunday, but the weather was just blech. We’ll make it up to him next weekend with some weekend guests who will lavish extra affection on him. Also: this.

Where I’m going: Atlanta today for the BIO conference! (with a dinner at Bacchanalia (not as decadent as it sounds) and a Braves game thrown in, along with a visit to my pals Joy & Miguel in Decatur)

What I’m happy about: It’s my last business flight till November! (unless I go to the show in Madrid in October)

What I’m sad about: Being away from my wife & doggie.

What I’m worried about: That I’ve landed on a planet where the political comments of a beauty pageant contestant (remember: they’re ditzy till proven smart) are grounds for a new culture war.

What I’m pondering: Whether I’ve seen enough good movies to post a Top 10 Movies of the decade list at the end of this year.
