1. I've gotten over my anxiety about having stuff delivered to my office; I ordered 2 cds from InSound the other day, and I just got them this morning. What did I get, you ask? I'll tell you. I finally got my hands on Sufjan Stevens' "Michigan" and Dungen's "Ta Det Lugnt", the latter of which I'm listening to right now and which is fucking AWESOME - it sounds like some lost 60's psych-rock album, but in Sweedish. If you can get your hands on it, I highly suggest taking it home with you.

2. Took yesterday off in order to get Kath to the hospital so that she could get out of a splint and into a cast. Those of you who know Kath personally (and have seen her feet) should know that, at least from a cosmetic standpoint, her foot looks absolutely fantastic. We're still not sure if it'll fix her pains, though, and we won't get an idea about it until she's able to walk on it (in six weeks). That said, it's still pretty remarkable.

3. I love the Yankees. I love October baseball. But I'd really love it if they could just win a game outright one of these days. Bottom-of-the-12th come-from-behind wins are exciting and all, but they're driving me fucking insane.

4. I have to say that I was a bit disappointed in the Edwards/Cheney debate the other night, although it appears that Edwards made a very favorable impression on the rest of the country. My brother was certainly jazzed up about it, and he was near-morose after the first Kerry/Bush debate, which blew my mind. What did you guys think? Kath and I were so anxious during it (well, I was also switching back to the Yankee game) that we nearly turned it off altogether.

5. I have no 5, I guess. Oh, wait, I do. I'm reading - and enjoying immensely - the final volume in Neal Stephenson's Baroque Cycle. I love long, dense books, and I'm really glad that Neal has decided to forgo the faux Olde English, though he still refuses to lose the "phants'y" bit.
