Hocus focus

My Get Out Of The Apartment Activity for the day was to go get a cup of tea at a local coffeehouse and finish my book. In getting out of the house, I managed to indulge in a little eavesdropping for once (Humbert doesn't talk much). The girls sitting behind me were graduate students in English but their whole conversation was about blogging. About their blogs, about the blogs they read, about blogs in general, the blogosphere, blog society, blog blog blog blog blog. If you have a blog, you probably know the ear-perking experience of hearing the word "blog" somewhere unexpected. I was trying to concentrate on their conversation and read my book at the same time when Ben Folds' "Zak and Sara" came on the coffeehouse's sound system. So I was now trying to read my book and eavesdrop on the conversation with my attention constantly being distracted by someone calling (or singing) my name. You don't get these kinds of exercises in consciousness when you're locked up in your apartment all evening, folks!
