Things that don’t sound like much fun but are useful anyway: Cleaning the apartment, trying to figure out what on earth is causing the oddness with my stylesheets, reading about XML.

Things that sound like bad ideas: Thinking about how Maryland blew a twenty point lead, thinking about upcoming deadlines at work, thinking about how bad the Orioles are going to be this season, thinking about how much of my day vanished because I was out until 2 at a Faraquet show and then it became 3 because of daylight savings and I didn’t set my alarm clock and then it was one o’clock before I got up and then my sentence ran on and on.

So I officially declare this afternoon a no-thinking zone.

Things that sound like fun possibilities for this afternoon: Going to see The Damned, sitting around drinking coffee and reading a Julian Barnes novel, twiddling around with my website, trying out a few Perl tricks and plotting out my forthcoming "literary year" project.
