Thank dog for frozen steamed chicken mushroom scallion buns, and the foresight to lay in a stock for obsessive writing days.
Winamp's randomizer seems, on an unscientifical survey, to be much more random than iTunes' randomizer.
Also, more psychic.
The lovely thing about writing space opera is that the genre tropes are such that things don't have to make sense. They go charging into battle in person, clad in their own fragile meat and a suit of power armor, because that's what people do in space opera.
In sensible science fiction, they send combat drones....
(and speaking of psychic, winamp gives me "The Asteroid Field.")
