Yankees up, 12-5. Oh yeah.

Very nice relaxing day, today... woke up, played some videogames with the woman; got some breakfast and picked up some books -

(1. "A Heartbreaking Work of Staggering Genius", Dave Eggers. I owned this and loved it, but my ex-girlfriend has it and I know I'll never get it back. Plus it has a new appendix, which is neat-o.

He was apparently right down the street from that building collapse - he said that the ambulances went right by him...

    The first sentence of this post was "Finally, some breathing room," and then as I was in the middle of the second sentence I got handed…

  • (no subject)

    Kinda hard to imagine Thomas Pynchon (and not, say, Tom Robbins) writing this paragraph, but there it is on p. 99 of "Inherent Vice":…
