I got these suckers at the shop the other day! They fit me lurvely and cost about $225 so I sort of impulse-bought them. It was something I had meant to do, but not quite this early.
I've been suffering from cold/allergy symptoms for the past couple days, but engaged in massive cleaning/redecoration all day regardless. Threw out tons of crap, which always feels good. The joint looks a lot better now in my mind.
This coming weekend I'm going up to New York to hang out with tabernak
and whoever else. That's the last travel I'm doing for a while. I'm contemplating doing the utter ski-bum thing next year -- take a month off, do my work where I am, grab a season pass somewhere, and just go nuts. I need to figure out how practical that is first, though.
