sometimes the world inside my monitor is such a beautiful and wondrous place that it makes me almost weep
(this! there is nothing in the world I would rather share with you right now more than this!)
Okay, I can't believe no one has called my attention to it before, but linked above is the hands down winner of the coveted JFW award for best music video of 2006. It would win even if not for the fact that the bald singer looks suspiciously like one of my Madison colleagues sporting fake sideburns. I am sitting here in my office on a Saturday night 'cause I've got many things to do, and yet I am mesmerized by this video, especially the thirty or so seconds of choreography starting at 2:20, which I believe must have been divinely inspired.
Speaking of treadmills: I have been going out running here in the cold with my hearty Iowa sweatshirt, ski mask, and kicky Nano exercise mix to keep me warm. Last year's experience leads me to strongly suspect that this is not a feasible all-winter solution, but that the only way I'm going to keep exercising is to pony up the $150 initiation fee plus monthly fee to join the gym near Porter Square. Either that, or get over my fear of working out in proximity to Harvard undergrads.
