With whom to dance

Ahh, procrastination. I'm sure I used to have a procrastination icon, but I can't find it. I have Things to do, so I'm playing Bejeweled Blitz on Facebook and posting here. Idiotically, it's not even dull or annoying things I should be doing, it's things I want to do, but I'm procrastinating anyway. So, a list:

  • Write a 1,500 word Nine/Donna story for sudge. I actually have a triptych in mind for this, in different styles, but we'll see.

  • Set up my shiny new PS3 that arrived today and have a go at Guitar Hero 5. All Along The Watchtower!

  • Finish off the Eisenhorn book that I really need to get back to laerad.

  • Do some ironing, I suppose, before my airer actually collapses under the weight of the things on it.

That's not unreasonable, I don't think. Writing first, or I'll never do it.

I'm listening to the Magnetic Fields, who I should obviously have started listening to at least ten years ago. Making up for lost time now.

Some linkage:

Great video about the acceleration of technological change, via andrewducker.

The guy behind the Alan Turing petition writes about his phone call from Gordon Brown.

miss_s_b has been interviewing Nick Clegg, in a Doctor Who t-shirt. Jennie, not Nick.

Salon interviews Dennis Baron about how the internet is NOT breaking our brains, any more than the ability to write made us forget how to learn things by heart, as Plato worried about.

And I'm not sure if I need a Rubix-esque dodecahedron with pentagonal faces, but I really want one. Not that I ever mastered the original Rubix cube, so...

Cor - a D12 Ruckick's cube. The mind boggles.

I suspect not so much brain-training, as the manufacturers suggest, more like throwing practice as you repeatedly give up and hurl the blessed object across the room in frustration.
