Suddenly, I realize: I haven’t posted since last Thursday. What the hell have I been doing?
Here are some highlights:
#1: Battling with some serious seasonal depression. I’m feeling much better, thank you.
#2: Listening to music in headphones and reading four books at once.
#3: Teaching myself mathematics. I hope to eventually get to calculus and beyond, but currently I’m on pre-algebra. Hey, you gotta start somewhere.
#4: Dicking around in the studio and then erasing everything. Contemplating selling my gear, then taking a nice hot shower and getting back to it.
#5. Pondering how the hell Vermonters find the will to go outside in February. Why do we celebrate Mardi Gras in the grim Northeast? Have you seen that documentary about the Chinese factory where they make the plastic beads that we toss at each other then later throw away? Well, maybe you need to.
#6. Preparing the one dish I know how to make — grapeleaves — then eating way too many.
#7. Watching that show House on DVD. The main character kind of reminds me of me. Who says you have to deal with patients to be a brilliant doctor? Extrapolate from my inference, win nothing.
#8. See #1.
#9. Wondering how the hell I’m going to fill my column this week.
#10. Enjoying music. The new Stars of the Lid is particularly nice.
