this is just to say


and something else added to my list: MC-EU1 remote cord, around $230. easy peasy. but i’m not buying a single frivolous thing until this time next month, at least. including camera accessories, laptops, books, my little ponies, clothes, etc. I am sworn. I spent close to $1000 this month, not even including Christmas presents. how about that?

20 or so people were stung by jellyfish this past weekend, so all the beaches are closed. not that I would ever swim even out of stinger season, i’m so scared of them. and they’re only thumbnail sized.

I finally grew fed up with x’s continual battery, so banned anonymous comments on my basement. he immediately started sending them through the business website instead, so I banned him from there, too, and from xentrik, just to be safe. i’m sure he’ll find some other way.

half-watching the news, they had the Iran earthquake fatality count, nearing 30,000, just seconds before some grinning, cheering people spraying themselves with champagne. I said some misering rhetorical thing about it and mother got mad, saying something like, “do you know why i’ll still be celebrating the New Year? because I have to. you can’t live life thinking that way,” only it took her 20 hours.

here is perhaps the only likeable magnetic poem in the world, left by William Carlos Williams on the fridge for his wife:

This is Just to Say
I have eaten
the plums
that were in
the icebox

and which
you were probably
for breakfast

Forgive me
they were delicious
so sweet
and so cold
