Wanting to post yet not having the time and energy to post has been rather stressful. Usually I can at least keep up with the flist, but that kind of went out the window as well. Thanks, RL, for throwing me lots of crap *at once*! XP I give up on "catching up" already.
My eyes and head feel fuzzy...I was already sleep-deprived, and yet I stayed up *really frickin late* randomly rereading books I haven't touched in ages. So much love for Many Waters by Madeleine L'Engle.
NPR's newest installment of IN CHARACTER about Jo from Little Women made me happy to know that I wasn't the only female in the world that didn't love love love that book when I read it. XD;
In an interview with a columnist from the NYT Magazine on On the Media, they talked about internet cafes in Japan. It was really odd hearing the booths called "media immersion pods" and talked about like it was totally freaky since I adore the privacy and comfort (and fast internet access) of those things when I go to Japan. But what really bothered me was the notion that people who inhabit "spaces in [their] head" is threatening and wrong to society.
