although my students are probably panicking about their papers which are due tomorrow night so I guess their stress is probably even more poignant than mine right about now.
I must sit and write for a little while and then I must do some work for my paying jobs and then I don't know exactly what I will do but it will probably involve walking around and spending small sums of money. it's like I have to buy an object every day but even small objects will do; yesterday for instance I bought two sheets of wire mesh and a pencil and that made me happy.
the wire mesh was for the new table and I carefully unfolded it and then bent a little hem into it and laid it out all nice and of course santiago thinks it is a shiny new toy. although oddly he has left the stuff on the table mercifully alone. so far. ::knock knock::
the new cushion is making my legs fall asleep in all sorts of novel ways. I think I might have gotten the pillow-to-cushion ratio just right the last ten minutes this morning as well as gauging exactly where to sit on the cushion and how tightly to fold my legs. it's very complicated and there are at least a thousand contingencies that go into having a comfortable sit.
I have to call the credit people about consolidating today. I can't keep putting it off. or can I? if you don't pay and you don't answer the phone and they can't send you to debtors prison what will happen ultimately? will someone come to my house and take everything that looks valuable?
