So glad you asked, Mr. Thread Title!

This week, I've been ...

reading: The Odyssey; The Guns of the South by Harry Turtledove (fun little alternate-history Civil War novel); The Meaning of Everything by Simon Winchester (impossibly funny and highly recommended reading for anyone who loves words or snarky academicians)
studying: two movies for a theatre class; basic accounting; some calculus
listening to: evening jazz and classical on NPR
watching: Project Runway finale (yaaaaay Jay!); crappy 6th season Buffy episodes; good first season X-Files
eating: chicken strips, cheap cheeseburgers, frozen peas, and popcorn (I looooove popcorn)
doing: working, going to school, playing trivia at Buffalo Wild Wings, pet-sitting and cooing "Paws!"

How about you?
