Finished reading "Foucault's Pendulum" this morning while on the subway, ironically enough. The book itself is pretty interesting - lots of disc theory-ish kinda stuff, too. Of course, most of the references flew right over my head, but then again, that might be the point. I do wish I had taken Latin in high school, instead of French - it seems to me that in every one of my favorite books, there are expressions and quotations in Latin that are never translated, which pisses me off. Now I need something new to read. The woman lent me her copy of Harry Potter IV, but I don't think I'm in the mood for it. Maybe I'll pick up some more Eco...

So I'm working today, for the first time since Monday, and for the 3rd time in 2 weeks, it seems. Very hard to make any money that way. I was sick for most of this week, too, so it's not like I was very productive. Now I've got a scorching toothache, which is slowly driving me crazy. I would like to be able to save up enough money to possibly be able to afford a trip to the dentist's office and just get a new set of teeth.

I am grateful, of course, to be working today, even if none of my people are in the office right now and I've done pretty much nothing except concentrate on my tooth.

I seem to have stopped worrying about the coming war; I can't tell whether it's because I've accepted it, whether I've finished grieving, or because I've succeeded in accomplishing total denial and suppression. Have I written any songs, have I produced the great anthem that will reenergize our country's spirits and bring us together in peace and love? No, not really - songwriting seems pretty insignificant right now.

Gonna get some coffee.

    So I guess I'm retiring this blog. Part of me feels like I need to make some sort of eulogy or something; part of me just wants to move on already.…

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