walkingshadow: anne taintor. it's not easy being easy. (ad astra per aspera)
For reasons that don't bear exploring at this juncture, I no longer have access to a car, and so I have been re-discovering the joys of public transportation and walking all over town. The weather's already turned cold, thank god, and I'm honestly enjoying it; though no one else seems to want me to walk long distances, or at night, or by myself. I find all of those concerns irritating to varying degrees, in that they always come off as condescending and paternalistic, even though I understand that there is a certain amount of real risk. Which also makes me irritated! I have been reading up on rape culture lately, does it show??

Anyway, everywhere is walking distance if you have the time, and I have, seriously, all the time in the world, and time flies when you have your ipod with you! So at first I used this as the perfect opportunity to catch up on all my podcasts; but then I actually caught up on all my podcasts, and I realized I was going to have to wait another week for the next episode of "Wait, Wait, Don't Tell Me!" to air; and THEN I remembered that I had the Star Trek audiobook on my computer but I'd never listened to it. YES.

So here are some random thoughts on what I've heard so far (I'm about two-thirds of the way through), keeping in mind that I've been listening while walking and therefore unable to write anything down, so these are just the random bits I remembered.

Zachary Quinto, that is a lot of talking. I salute you! )
