endless possibilities

it is my afternoon off! and tomorrow is my entire day off! what shall i do!

i am torn over whether i should spend this afternoon fiddling with excel since i am using it for gradekeeping and thus it would have something to do with work but on the other hand anything computer-related has an element of leisure built right in.

i need to do my dishes. when i am teaching i stop doing my dishes. also the recycling is overflowing.

yesterday's five-mile walk was so invigorating i am thinking of taking another one today. i wonder if that would be overtraining.

otherwise there is always bowling for columbine. it starts at 5 downtown.

i predict that in three hours i will feel the letdown of not having enough time to do all these things.

i decided on doing the dishes and then treating myself to an evening cup of coffee.

now i have this great desire to say something but i have absolutely nothing to say.

perhaps a meticulous narrative of my week will suffice.

on saturday i spent my free time worrying about when my free time would be over.

on sunday i felt guilty all day.

on monday i ate the last of my cereal so i had to go buy more before tuesday morning.

on tuesday i did not watch buffy for approximately the 12th time this season.

on wednesday i bored my students half to death and myself even more so.

on thursday the cat would not let me get out of bed so i obligingly stayed there for an extra two hours.

today i carpooled.

oh and last friday afternoon i saw far from heaven and found it to be most relevant in spite of what the san francisco critics were saying and i think their problem is that they've been in san francisco too long and have forgotten that there are still many many places in the western world where men kissing men is shocking or worse.
