1. Right now, I’m sitting really, really still, because I haven’t moved my feet for ages. For some reason, although I’m wearing open sandals, not moving has made it feel as if I’m wearing shoes, and the novelty is so extreme that I can’t bear to break the sensation.

Every time I listen to It’s The End Of The World As We Know It (And I Feel Fine) by REM, I can’t shake the nagging suspicion that there’s some kind of weird prophecy about current events embedded in the lyrics, especially now I know that Barack Obama’s Secret Service codename is Renegade. (Before, I was fixated on the aeroplane, hurricane and foreign towers lines, but it’s always good to diversify.)
