One of Those Days!
I'm fidgety. It's one of those days: the weather is beautiful and I should be somewhere other than in a computer lab entering exam grades. Even if my body cannot be out doing other things, at least my mind should be, right?
Have you ever noticed how items can lump themselves together in our minds? The weather has immediately conjured up the following constellation of diversions:
Musically, it is a day for Beirut, DeVotchKa, the Decemberists and Andrew Bird.
It is a day for Indiana Jones, The Life Aquatic, Tombstone or Apollo 13.
It is a day for Mickey Mouse and Tintin, The Twenty One Balloons and Twenty Thousand Leagues under the Sea.
It is days like these that make me want to join the Explorers Club, the CIA or Mission Aviation Fellowship.
In a word: it's a day for adventures!
Alas, I'll get back to my exams now...
