Because my birthday is in less than a month and I am a selfish human being. And save for two people, no one I care about in reality knows of this blog’s existence anyway.
-earbuds! sport ones w/out wings. mine broke, again.
-them delicious Hanover pretzel bits (honey mustard and onion!)
-giftcards of the food, coffee, apple/itunes variety
-the annotated sherlock holmes by william baring-gould
-dotted / grid large notebooks
-magazine subscriptions (interview/ new yorker/ etc)
-late harvest ice wine
going on an artificial-sugar-free diet until my birthday. wish me luck!
PS – this does not include the sugar for my coffee. I am ambitious, not suicidal.
feeling slightly renewed. i rewatched season 2 of the UK Office before i went to bed, which wasn’t the most uplifting thing to do. it still rattles me how good of an actor Gervais used to be – back when he didn’t depend on disabled “fellas” for jokes. anyway, the pilot for his new show “Derek” is reminiscent of his old style, endearing, true, and relatable – so hopefully that turns out to be compelling.
I have a crap load of stuff to handle at work right now, due to the fact that no one bothered looking after the receivables whilst I was away.
still, i must and shall dedicate at least 3 hours of my day to rereading Descartes, Hume and Plato tonight. I MUST I MUST I MUST!
My Dad formatted his PC, which I’d just redone for him a couple of days ago. He accidentally deleted his internet and sould drivers – so yup, that’s on my to-do list tonight as well.
On a brighter note, I got my friend COMPLETELY OBSESSED with Sherlock (the BBC adaptation) and now she’s surviving by actually reading the original ACD stories!! I’m so proud!
