Abez Today: FYI

I am reading
Methods of Learning and Evidential Deduction between Sunnites and Heterodixtsts
(Which is far more interesting than the title would lead you to believe)

I am listening to
(Which is a fantastic book, even in audio format.)

I am looking at
My hovercraft is full of eels.
(Because HF found it and HF rules)

I am taking
(To reduce swelling in the ligament in my knee that hasn't healed since the accident)

I am eating
(Low-sugar, low-taste, low-thought breakfast option of champions)

I am wearing
Blue Jeans
(because they were clean)

So, what are you up to today? Blurkers, I'm asking you too!

I am reading: One Flew Over the Cuckoo's nest. Surprising nuance in the writing that the movie missed.

I am listening to: the whir of my ancient computer's fan.

I am looking at: Getting dressed. And making biryani. And going to the studio. Bah.

I am taking: It eaaaaaaasy, taking it eaaaaaaasy.

I am eating: Tea. The engine of Owl is fuelled by tea.

I am wearing: the Zarilla get-up.

Saira: "Blurker" = blog+lurker. =)

I am reading: VEBLOGS!

Listening to: Pukhtu music pouring out of my co-worker's computer.

Looking at: Photos tagged "Muslim" on flickr.

Taking: A lot of time to finish a simple Excel spreadsheet, simply because it's Friday and I like Fridays to be slow.

Eating (/Just finished eating): Chicken tikka boti, chicken tikka masala, vegetable biryani, and the best naan in the WORLD. Also: LOTS of water.

Wearing: A black dress I cut up into layers under a hooded long-sleeved t-shirt under a gray short-sleeved t-shirt. And my favorite flared jeans. Oh, and SHOES! WHOA. And a multi-colored headwrap, and dangly black earrings. Oh, and glasses. I need to schedule an eye exam, and soon.

Blink was fascinating - I've found myself thinking of it quite often since reading it last month.

I want to look up The Tipping Point now too - have heard it's even better!
