Those three magic words...

"50% off sale!" Yes, with so few dollari in my pocket I went to one, and did quite well. Got a couple pairs of pants, a belt, a new wallet, and a hooded sweatshirt. (The "good" part of heartbreak: weight loss. Never been this thin in my life. The bad part (ha): my clothes hang on me now and look pretty shtoopid. So, see, shopping isn't just therapeutic, it's necessary....yeah...)

As predicted, Jim totally kicked arse on the GRE so I'm preparing him a box of pickle chips in congratulations. This is how he is a simple happy man and my best friend.

Am also perked as he and I had an excellent discussion, hopefully to be continued at some point when we're not tired or under the influence, about our respective passions for the sciences and the humanities. Cos scientists always say they are all about going where no one has gone before, and how can we do that when we've been retreading the same stuff for hundreds of years? Of course, to be fair, if ya can't spend a millenia or so on the meaning of the human condition and so forth, well, what can ya? And that's why it's
"the great conversation!"

In drearier news got an Xmas present from Andrew: a LOTR desk calendar, which brings back all over again how can someone know me so well and still hurt me? Stupid human nature.

This is why I am drinking tonight. "Alcohol is an intoxicant and an anodyne. Right now I'm using it an anodyne." I have no idea if I'm spelling that right, but good quote. Yup.
