two steps forward

I've done a little writing this morning which is good but I have spent so much time on Deleuze I've sort of forgotten what Levinas has said and although I have tons of notes I find that reading notes does not help me to remember the essence of the passage even if at the time of noting I thought I nailed it. it's as though with theory the experience has to be immediate or it does not register. thus prospectus, exams, notes--all useless unless I want to copy and paste some things that I don't think really work.

so I guess it is back to the books themselves and I don't know how quickly I can reacquaint myself with Totality and Infinity and Otherwise than Being, but it will have to be pretty quick. I guess I was able to get a good reminiscence of Logic of Sense going after just a couple of chapters but I don't know these books quite as thoroughly.

well one does the work as it comes up and hopes for a foreseeable end. right now though I need more coffee and I think a long walk. I badly need to get out of san francisco but every time I think I have an extra hundred dollars a bill comes along and takes it. I don't know why bills always surprise me, as they are pretty regular, but instinctively my accounts receivable and my accounts payable are not related databases so the one is always a little shocked at the demands of the other.

maybe I should get a car though and take a trip to trader joes for people supplies and the vet for cat food. my favorite cereals are quite a bit cheaper there and you can even get decent frozen food for reasonable sums. I was just thinking that I should buy this RockStar Energy Drink by the four- or six-pack and I bet trader joe's has it for less than anyone else. the question though is do I spend the money on the car in order to save the money off the drinks or do I hoof it down there. I could sort of use the exercise I guess.

oh ho hum.

have you already told us what your favorite cereals are? i'm still eating wheaties. since ted outgrew the sugary crap, we mostly buy cheerios and wheaties and country morning with pecans and raisins.
