A grab-bag of random thoughts
Our neighborhood smells like burnt popcorn right now.

I am super-excited that Google Earth has now been launched for Macs. I am not excited that Jack the Mac is too old to support the beta-version.

My feet feel claustrophobic in shoes.

I think I'm stuck-up. Either that or introverted. I'm still trying to figure out which.

I watched a documentary about a transvestite seminarian for the Phoenix Film Festival this week. I'm now obsessed with trying to spot transvestites on the street.

I'll admit it, I award myself a heap of cool points for being a Phoenix Film Festival Viewing Committee member. (Is this a revealing factor of my stuck-uppityness?)

I can't figure out how to get the creepy old man next door at work to stop bringing me cookies and offering to buy me a pizza and "watch you work" when I stay late during deadline week. Maybe a restraining order would work.

Despite the many permutations my faith has gone through in the past decade or so, one thing remains: I just can't give up on God.

I really like the cute green sock cover I got for my iPod.

I feel a connection to Lynne Truss, author of Eats, Shoots and Leaves because in her introduction, she talks about picketing in front of a Leicester Square theater, protesting the absence of an apostrophe in the movie title, Two Weeks['] Notice, which was showing when I was in London. I imagine her standing just feet away from me outside the movie's premier, she with her grammatically correct placard, me with my camera, whose film I wasted while waiting for Hugh Grant and Sandra Bullock to appear.

I really miss my dog. He's been frollicking with his "cousin" at my grandparents' in Berkeley for the past week.

There are four books that I've started but have yet to finish sitting on my bookshelf. Each still has a bookmark saving my place. I'm starting to run out of bookmarks.

I really would not like to be a punter on a football team. That looks like the most vulnerable position on the team.

Bobby Darrin's "Beyond the Sea" came on the radio this afternoon. I don't really know why, but this put me in a really good mood.
