At the gym today I thought it would be fun to run on the treadmill for a little bit. This turned out to be true, except for the part where my knee is now killing me. I knew there was a reason to stick to the dorky elliptical machines.

I've been fish-sitting for the world's oldest goldfish. Despite my fears, it survived the weekend and didn't managed to escape from the bowl. This seems like an irrational concern, but I notice it occasionally splashing.

television tonight has been weird. the Simpsons was political and the Sopranos is surreal. This dream sequence is definitely on par with "Restless" and Twin Peaks.

Last night Tim mentioned something about In the Aeroplane Over the Sea being inspired by Jeff Magnum's passionate love affair with the ghost of Anne Frank. I probably wouldn't have thought of this, but I'm pretty bad about processing lyrics. Searching for this on the internet, I found some support for the theory and t-shirts.

Diz and I would like to reiterate our appreciation for said fish-sitting.
I will reiterate my appreciation for Riz being on his best behavior. Especially the not escaping or dying parts.
why didn't you fish sit my old fish? he died.
what old fish? Reggie Watts? dead?

I didn't fish sit for him because you gave him to Chris when you moved to New York.

This is definitely not an irrational concern when dealing with some fish. Pete, the fish you gave me in high school, used to jump out of his bowl all the time, especially when I would put him elsewhere to clean his bowl. It made me crazy, and caused me to turn against Pete a little bit. I mean, I didn't need to be chasing him all over the place all the time, he was a fish for Pete's sake, he was supposed to stay in his bowl! So yeah, completely a rational worry.
Thanks for the assurances of rationality. I decided to put a screen over the bowl to ease my paranoia and was surprised to find splashes of water on it. But this fish is fourteen-years-old; so it must have some survival skills.
