It could be going better. It could be going worse.
Let’s just leave it at that.
Janet Patterson, costume designer for Bright Star
I lolled through most of this quote.
Woke up and got bummed out when I discovered it would be raining all day long. Drank coffee and felt somewhat better. Got to work, where the museum was overrun by visitors. Started forming plans for the weekend; became somewhat startled by weekend opportunities actually arising. Discovered that more of my writing had gone up on PopMatters. Ran around and lifted large volumes of art books from departmental libraries. A guard saw me carrying a huge stack of books in my pitiful arms and said, “You must really want to read.” Well, I really want other people to read, but I don’t mind it myself, yeah. Saw Ric Ocasek in the museum lobby! Listened to Denim’s Back in Denim on the commute home and realized “Here Is My Song For Europe” sounds more than a bit like Bow Wow Wow’s “Do You Want To Hold Me.” Hung out with the cat whom I’m cat sitting. Ate a sandwich and zoned out to Screenwipe. Maybe crushed on Charlie Brooker’s crankiness.
