to-do list

finish media mining
go to post office and mail contracts and things
go to bank (walk; it's nice out, and you're blowing off the gym today because ashacat is not feeling well)

clean (and tidy--this place is starting to develop that college dormitory aspect of piles of paper having fetched up against the walls like drifts of leaves)
write
eat something
