October 24th, 2003



it is my Saturday or at least my Friday and a half and I thought that maybe like last week I'd be up for a little work today but I have this headache that doesn't seem to want to go away and although I could read I don't know that I could pay attention.

so I've swallowed an analgesic and will soon plug the guitar in (because that will help a headache!) but right now I want to go shopping. the unfortunate thing, other than that I shouldn't spend money, is that I don't actually want anything. If Macy's sold digital cameras I might go charge one on my Macy's card so it is a good thing they don't. their payments are really low but their interest is really high so you can buy one pair of pants and pay like $2 a month for them for the rest of your life.

there is nothing else I want. oh sure I always want shoes but today I don't want them badly enough to go looking for them.

the only motivation I feel is to go read. that could be channeled into buying books except that having done just that for the past three years has left me feeling a little guilty about buying more before I've read a substantial portion of the ones I have.

oh but in a banner achievement I actually finished a book this week. I'm not sure when the last time was that I did that.

go away headache.

it is getting warm out. apparently it might hit 90F in the city this weekend. I shouldn't complain as we've had a mild October--no heatwave since the end of September--but hot weather this time of year still makes me mad.

at least it instantly turns cold and rainy in November. usually. I hope the heat we've managed to avoid this month doesn't insist on keeping accounts.

I keep getting spam for "debt relief with a christian perspective." am trying to figure out if it means Jesus will come and throw my creditors out of the temple.
