Elementary, my dear Watson

Haven't updated much this week; it's been a busy work week and I've wrestled with a "I don't want to be with anyone or do anything but lay on my couch and watch television" mood for much of it. I'm in good spirits this morning, having already been in to the office to set up for the Intro to Grace seminar.

Also trying to catch up with e-mail to friends that I've neglected and allowed to stack up (virtually) in my inbox. There are too many other ways to damage relationships for me to allow them to come to harm by neglect. At least, that's my heart-- sometimes my actions say otherwise.

And on that topic, happy belated birthday (yesterday), daisybud! I hope you had a great one.

The couple at the next table (married, hopefully to each other) are making googly eyes at each other, giggling and rubbing/kissing each others' hands across the table. Every once in a while she feeds him part of a croissant. If I boot on them (which is what I feel like doing), it won't be nearly as romantic.

allysonkalea recently asked me what I planned to read next, and I completely forgot that the Millers gave me Michael Chabon's The Amazing Adventures of Kavalier and Clay as a gift for helping in their wedding. I hadn't heard of it, possibly because I'm a literary idiot, but it may be my next lighter reading. When I brought it home from the office today, I found that they had also inserted a foil Spock trading card between the pages. Sweet, thoughtful Millers.

George Harrison. Damn.

So will my internet get shut off in the great Excite @Home tug of war? I'm an addict and I need my broadband fix.

An old man just walked in wearing a deerstalker. I love Victrola and Capitol Hill.
