Thursday and I have already checked out. I’ve got 3-day-weekend on the brain. 1. easily distracted & 2. mildly bored. thinking of perhaps planning something exciting to do later in the month with B.–maybe explore a new area of the city, or visit another city, or something spontaneous to liven up the dark&dreary winter? not sure…but feeling rather humdrum. and cold! good night its cold out there. i guess things do get monotonous when the day is spent entirely either in the office or in the apartment, or quickly scurrying between the two.
speaking of distracted….
a few blogs I am loving right now:
- Book of Kells: has had really great tips lately for poets aspiring to publish their first book.
- This is Glamorous: beautiful design / fashion oriented blog
- Cat vs. Human: cat ladies, unite!
oh and all this internet-ness? due to not having any books. well except for two excellent books that I am currently reading: Paper Anniversary by Bobby C. Rogers (my former professor) and Bone Fires by Mark Jarman. (P.S. Paper Anniversary is better.) I like to also read a novel though, somewhere in the mix, and I have no novels at the moment because the library Lost my weekly on-hold items?! they know me..by name….because i go there way too much?…so it was a sad-day. they offered to call me when they find them but i figure i’ll just go back on Saturday when the head librarian guy is there and i’m sure he’ll know where they are. What I’m waiting for: 9 Steps to Beautiful Living, Women Writers At Work, Orlando (Woolf), If You Want to Write (Ueland). of course, working at a seminary, i do have the option of (re)visiting the seminary library…which i’ve been contemplating doing all day. except it means going out in the cold. eventually my desire for the books will overcome my disdain of the cold and i’ll make the trip out there.
speaking of the library….
the more bored i am, the less shame i have. the other day i tried very hard to convince the librarian to give me (or even sell me) one of their card catalogs. i really want one. i mean, I REALLY REALLY want one! B. says, what will you put in it? the drawers are tiny! where would we put it, our apartment is tiny! and i say “does it matter?”
no, it doesn’t. look at how beautiful:
things would work out, i believe it.
