…I haven’t been sleeping much, and now I’m slightly behind on my school reading. I think its all just a byproduct of the weather, but nonetheless, it has laid me up with a nasty chest cold. I think the necessary remedy is to pick up one of the “real” books I keep staring at (I’m thinking of Lynn Coady’s short story collection Play the Monster Blind)–I’m sure I could read a few stories before I must cook.

The turkey is under my wing today, so Happy Thanksgiving. Eat lots of pie–some of you stop eating so much pie.
