can't sleep books will eat me

starfish and coffee, maple syrup and jam

2011 05 25 daily commute

Tea today: Queen Mary's mango passionfruit black tea
Teacup today: Teddy bear picnic

Goals for the day are simple: walk the dog, wash the dog, climb, go to the bank like a grownup or something, buy cat food.

My brain may be growing back slowly. It's been a long, long run of gnawing deadlines, and it's nice to have a couple of days when I don't absolutely have to work.

I'm thinking about postcard stories, too. A couple of more days of brain-refilling and I might even be competent to write some.

i want to be good: is that not enough?

Climbing outside at Pinnacle Rock today with ashacat, The Jeff, and various others.

We did three easy routes, all of which I've sent before, and two of which were quite hard enough for me. I feel thoroughly exercised: this was only me second trip outside so far this year.

ashacat on belay and The Jeff on a wall ("Yucca Flats"):
