My throat is getting tighter and it's looking more likely that I have a cold. Maybe I'll get lucky and shake it off.
Big night in: shadowdaddy made some cheesy ham & noodle bake and then we watched some Danger Mouse. I'm having a bit of a hard time keeping my eyes open. I'm going to try to read for a little bit.
The New York Times has a great article on free will today, highly relevant to my weekend, I think. "A bevy of experiments in recent years suggest that the conscious mind is like a monkey riding a tiger of subconscious decisions and actions in progress, frantically making up stories about being in control." Yep, that's me all right, "nothing more than [a] sophisticated meat machine." I want the monkey/tiger picture for a new user icon.
It's the time of the year when the sun rises the latest: 8:06 AM today. In two more days it will start rising at 8:05, and then we'll start really feeling the length of the days increasing. It was cool watching the sun rise today, though, shortly before I headed across the river to a day wasted in its entirety other than the pleasure of texting wechsler for ages and ages. I asked him if he'd took my brain home with him; I haven't seemed to have it at all today. That said, I think I'll read for just a bit more and call this a done day.
