What I am Reading:

Starship Troopers, by Robert Heinlein
One thing that I just recently learned is that Robert Heinlein popularized the acronym TANSTAAFL. Thank you, Robert Heinlein. Starship Troopers is a moral/philosophical novel cloaked in the guise of science fiction. Which means that I love the moral/philosophical parts and I am trying to like the sci-fi, "powered armor" parts. (Apparently, "power suits" mean different things to sci-fi than they do to the eighties).

What I am Listening To:

Urinetown. Duh. Is it hard to be in a show that is nominally about bodily functions?

Yes, sometimes it is. Mostly because I don't want my family to hate it and I feel like they will.
