(no subject)

I guess I'll shower today. I probably shouldn't admit that I totally lose track of the last time I showered. I wash my head and face occasionally and put lotion all over them but as far as taking the clothes off and getting the whole body wet--well it's just something that I don't like to do and the only way I'll do it is with my morning coffee and general positive mood and even so talking myself into actually going through with it is something that doesn't happen perhaps as often as it should.

once upon a time my mother told me I'd get 'diseases' from washing as rarely as I do but so far that has not happened. I'm fairly certain she did not know what she was talking about.

in any case I do not drive people away on the street or on the bus so I know I smell better than some.

maybe I should take more naked pictures. I still hate being naked and that's a shame.

anyway once that is done I have decided that I am just going to sit and read as much of the making of americans as I can which of course will be a tiny proportion of the whole thing but going through it this time I'm seeing the trajectory of what there is of a plot a lot better and other things are occurring to me so I think it is good that I just read for a few days and see what comes up.

then I guess I'll comment on some response papers. I have a pile to do by tuesday afternoon. I'm not too worried yet but we all know how I heart grading papers.

I have to come up with a reading list for the art institute class too. better spend some time on that.

too much to do. guess I'd better start somewhere.

siesta takes man hostage for five hours leaving work undone

so the long nap in the middle of the day pretty much precluded me from doing much but read a hundred pages of stein which I suppose may in some ways be responsible for the nap but I've got to get out of this cycle of spending 5 out of 14 days asleep.

in a minute I'm going to go to bed and I'm going to get up earlier than I have been and I'm taking my shot first thing and well we'll see how that goes.

otherwise, I'm lonely. not sure why. might go into it in a more private venue.
