[personal] A glimpse inside my mind

In case you were wondering how my mind works, here's a partial list of the things that I thought about on my pre-dawn walk this morning, in semirandom order as I can recall them an hour later:

  • calendula_witch

  • Why the local police have switched from Crown Vics to Dodge Chargers

  • The value of a passive predation strategy that relies on stupid prey (ie, spiders in their webs)

  • World building and character elements in Sunspin

  • Whatever happened to wooden wheels on cars?

  • calendula_witch some more

  • The question of artifactual intelligence vs nonartifactual intelligence, and whether the human race as a whole is missing the point

  • That I need to go to the grocery store today or tomorrow

  • Where the hell the moon was, since I'd seen it in the sky yesterday morning

  • the_child's new school year

  • What was the animal in the bushes that sounded like a wounded howler monkey

  • Oregon weather

  • The Magazine of Fantasy and Science Fiction
