Utter exhaustion. I did not fall asleep last night until sometime after 2:30am. I thought, as I lifted a 6pm glass of green tea, that it might not be the best idea, but I’ve been falling asleep right quick and often early thanks to getting up at 5:30am for ashtanga. So I drank. Not all bad—I was more productive yesterday than maybe all of September entirely. Or perhaps it just felt that way. Today? Not productive. Tired. I got up at 5:30am for ashtanga on less than 3hrs sleep. Ritual is good, and by Surya b I felt fine. That lasted until 3pm. Okay, maybe I’m babble-y and not so lucid, but I still want to share a few things.
I never expounded on the originalmuppet glory/bohemian rhapsody post, so I deleted and am reposting here. I found so much good stuff online that week but didn’t get a chance to share it. Now, to decide. Should I explain what inspired my Freddy fetish? No, George, it’s not cause he was Indian. It was a stats midterm in 2008. I won’t go into it now. Suffice it to say that I absolutely adore Queen. While I was packing or cleaning my old place, I heard this great interview with Brian May on Fresh Air/npr, but I didn’t hear all of it and forgot to look it up. My friend, Peter, told me about it when I went all gaga over the muppets’ cover, with which May helped. He also chats about his astrophysics PhD dissertation on dust (A Survey of Radial Velocities in the Zodiacal Dust Cloud), and publishing a book, A Village Lost and Found, of stereographic, 19th century photos. Speaking of gaga, Lady G’s name was inspired by Queen’s song, Radio Ga Ga. So, certainly, I love her, too.
