What It Is: 8/31/09

What I’m reading: Moby Dick, The Jew of New York, and The Muppet Show: Meet the Muppets, by Roger Langridge.

What I’m listening to: The Flat Earth, by Thomas Dolby, and the soundtrack to Stop Making Sense.

What I’m watching: A documentary on Faubourg Tremé, Nick and Norah’s Infinite Playlist, and The Last Dragon. With Bruce Leroy.

What I’m drinking: Plymouth & Q Tonic.

What Rufus is up to: Meeting a 14-month-old Newfoundland who was almost twice as large as him.

Where I’m going: Nowhere in particular, holiday weekend be darned!

What I’m happy about: I found the Pilot G-2 0.5mm retractable, a replacement pen for the occasionally-exploding Pilot Precise 0.5mm pens that were my standard. I’m happy to report that gel ink makes the rolling-ball pen flow pretty smoothly. One of the problems I have with writing longhand is that most pens tend to scrape and, well, move too slowly on the paper to keep up. Yes, I have problems.

What I’m sad about: Chef Central has apparently stopped making my favorite coffee, so I have to start trying out new whole bean options.

What I’m worried about: Having to fix my iMac after running Drive Genius 2 on it rendered it unbootable.

What I’m pondering: Taking a week or two off from my regular features and only posting intermittently. In fact, that’s just what I’m gonna do. I’ll post some Unrequired Reading at the end of the week, but don’t expect many posts for a little while, okay?
