Music for the Elliptical

   All we've ever wanted is to look good naked
   Hope that someone can take it
   God save me rejection from my reflection,
   I want perfection.

      -- "Bodies", Robbie Williams, "Reality Killed the Video Star"

   And there's so much time to make up everywhere you turn
   Time we have wasted on the way
   So much water moving underneath the bridge
   Let the water come and carry us away.

      -- "Wasted on the Way", Crosby, Stills & Nash, "Daylight Again"

   Running on, running on empty
   Running on, running blind
   Running on, running into the sun
   But I'm running behind.

      -- "Running on Empty", Jackson Browne, "Love Is Strange"

Marginally better than 2012, but still nowhere near what I ought to be doing. And this year is even worse. It's almost the end of April and I've only finished two books even though I've started reading five or six.
