  • Mood:

If you can't beat 'em, join 'em

Errands this morning, which I'm using as occasion to have coffee at Victrola. From reading here, one would think my life centered on that delicious bean, but that appearance is more a function of the fact that I find it easier to journal from coffee shops much of the time.

That said, coffee is indeed wonderful.

I'm getting an iPod (shipped this morning) because I want to shut out some of the crazy—especially on the bus, but it's everywhere. I just don't want to have to hear it all the time anymore. That feels a bit like giving up, admitting that I'm going to do what everyone else does and willfully shut myself off from the world, but I'm simply tired of listening to all the babble and noise.
