In the midst of my Facebook unfriending spree, I am equally repulsed and unsurprised by the number of former high school classmates who have dropped out of college only to find employment at the local country clubs.

THE NEW SEASON OF KORRA ALREADY STARTED AND SOMEHOW I DID NOT KNOW THAT.

To Do (Lazy Day Off Edition)

  • deposit paycheck ($$$ in the bank)
  • run to the library to check out The Thief before it disappears from the shelves again
  • brief grocery run
  • figure out where to find those really large command hooks? and Christmas lights?
  • buy a used copy of Satanic Verses at Powell’s because not being able to write in the margins of my library copy is making me crazy
  • laze about in Tea Chai Té for however long seems appropriate
  • 1 hour of pilates

Taking ships’ logs from the 1700s and 1800s, and charting each geolocated entry on a white surface, you get this map. For an interesting discussion, check out this article.

Itching (more accurately: dying) to re-read You Can’t Go Home Again, but my well-loved copy is languishing away in some bookshelf back home and the prospect of reading a clean library copy without the feverish and effusive it’s-the-last-assigned-reading-of-my-high-school-career-ahhh marginalia is too depressing to bear.
