i can write about more than food, i swear
Food is just so...lovely.
I could write about school, but it's the summer and I am school-lite. While I absolutely realize the importance of summer breaks for you teacher-folk, I really wish August 29th would roll around. While classes start on August 24th (a Wednesday), I only have class on Mondays and Tuesdays. But still, I have ten more weeks to wait until I have structured academic time.
I could write about my unstructured academic time, which consists of plowing through first readings of books for next semester (the ones I know about, at least), re-reading books I read ages ago, opening Volume A of the Norton Anthology of American Literature
and working my way through Volume D, and so forth. I have a nice stack of books on my table. It'll be a good thing to get through them all, because there are hundreds more to read. This is what happens when you don't read anything
for ten or fifteen years and then decide "oh hey, I think I'll continue on with school."
I could write about my stoked-ness about going to visit Mel
for a few days next month, but...that was it. I'm stoked. I saw her a few months ago on neutral ground (not her city, not my city), but we haven't actually visited since...crap, I dunno. I think we went to see Fight Club
, and that came out in '99. I could be completely wrong.
I could write about work, but...bleh. Who wants to hear that? I don't even want to write
about it, so I can imagine no one wants to read about that.
I could answer questions, but I'm out of questions to answer.
I could write about politics, but many others
are far better at it than I am, so I'll just wave my pom-poms at what they write.
