I've got a headache. I watched The Godfather and most of Godfather: Part II last night. I fell asleep in the middle of it.

I went to the liquor store. They had some English and French perry, so I picked it up. It was a new arrival. I will let you know how it goes.

They have pommeau available as well, but they do not have calvados. Pommeau de Normandie, none from Bretagne.

I'm terribly run down at the moment. Not even heavy drinking makes it better. Trust me, I tried. Scientifically. Double, as it were, blind.

It's been cold, so I've been too lazy to walk to the gym. I think that might contribute to my being run down. I could drive the mile to the gym. But I have to get an ice scraper and scrape the ice off my car. I really should do that.

I really should also do some friggin work.

I've got to get away. I feel I've gone and screwed it all up. Sold the birthright for a mess of pottage. Walking hundreds of miles barefoot and growing a beard to make up for it.

I ate salmon last night. I also drank beer. I really enjoyed the salmon. I ate it the night before. I really enjoyed it then, too. That's why I ate it last night. I don't have a lunch with me. Maybe I should buy more smoked salmon and some crackers and eat salmon for lunch.

I picked up War and Peace as soon as the Pevear and Volokhonsky translation came out in paperback. It's been sitting on my desk for a week now. I might start it while at lunch today. While eating salmon.

I have a headache. I have several little scars on my hands. I remember why I have most of them, but a couple aren't well-explained. My headache is well-explained. Science.

When I run into this girl, I'll ask her if she eats dinner. Then I will ask if she will eat dinner with me. I will pretend to be awkward. It should be endearing. It should work, since I will run into her right around dinner time and it would be natural to pop into the Thai place around the corner. I had thought of doing so with some other guy and her roommate because they are also there and I wasn't sure which of the pair to ask to dinner. I might still do that. But then: I'm not sure if I'm ready yet. I might have to do a lot more scientific research into the causes of headaches possibly followed by regrettable phone calls/letters. A couple months of that. And hair shirts, wandering barefoot, etc. I might just skip lunch today. "Do you eat dinner?" No, no, I don't. No salmon, no doubt.

It is all a distraction. A way to avoid standing before the mirror under a harsh light.

If you give up before I finish this scarf, I will be so cranky. I'm finally in the home stretch! I passed the halfway point!

Cherr the fuck up! And eat more salmon! With more exclamation points!

It was superlative. Friggin' expensive, but I figure I just got a bonus and I spend so little otherwise.
