Energetic to the point of bursting out of bed into song. The hills are alive (my default song for bursting into song)! I got a ponderous burden off my back, just like in The Pilgrim's Progress. Then I ate sushi. And drank sake. It was quite good.

The question is, where do I go from here?

I have to turn in the take-home test for econ today. I don't have any respect for it. I also forget whether there was homework due that he let us hold onto for the test. If there was, I'm not sure I did it.

I'm considering taking off this afternoon as I thought about doing yesterday.

Somebody should name some weight-loss business after Ehud.

I picked up Overqualified by Joey Comeau of . It's pretty rad. I haven't really touched it yet, but, given my enjoyment of the letters on the web site, it should be a fun novel.

That's pretty much the last book acquisition I anticipate for quite some time except for anything required for education etc. I'm huddling in the corner and hording my resources in anticipation of possible future substantial outlays. Oh, drat, I may want to get my guitar repaired or replaced and start playing again, but I don't want to dip into the "substantial outlay" budget. And I don't have time for it. So, back burner!

Tight, tight, unguent trousers:

I agree with UK skepticism:

Hope! Change!

I subscribed the first four years. Haven't thought about it since.

... are voices that urge me to stay.

That is a sinister, Lovecraftian line. How do you solve a problem like Maria? If she listens to the voices and stays too late something squamous and rugous may well render the question moot.
