quarterly report

my desk is still relatively clean although the books are beginning to congregate. my pens and pencils are actually in a pen and pencil cup which used to be a coffee cup but it got dropped so it has cracks in it that coffee might seep out of were i to put coffee in it. i'm actually keeping up with my mail. well that doesn't count the pile of it that is still unsorted and unopened on the livingroom credenza. we have a credenza. don't you wish you had one.

among the books on my desk are neuromancer and a copy of proust's sodom and gomorrah en français so really it is sodome et gomorrhe and it is over 500 pages of small print in a foreign language and i bought it in a burst of ambition which unfortunately outstrips my actual ability to differentiate between all those que's and celui's. although really the celui's don't give me that many problems. it's the que's which sometimes occur in the most incomprehensible places. this is especially pertinent as proust will string together about a hundred subordinate clauses all connected with que's to make up a single sentence. i have a hard enough time following him in translation. what was i thinking?
