the few things I did today are summarized here

Hmm. I rode my bike to the locks in Ballard and sat on the big stepped hill to read the Jeffery Eugenides short story that Ellen sent me. There were grey seagulls there, moving in packs and making strange sounds. They were pretty fantastic. And the story was good too. I think I'll want to read Middlesex when it's released this fall. I have a feeling that some of the greek stuff that seemed showy in short story form will have a point in the novel.

On the way home, I stopped at Sonic Boom to buy some music. Waxwing was playing a free in-store, so I stayed longer than I'd planned, but left before they were finished because I wanted to get home before dark.

There were lots of bugs in the air tonight. Maybe they wouldn't be noticeable for people walking, but on a bike it's much more unpleasant.


you learn to ignore the bugs on scooters and motorcycles.. I think because you realize you're flying faster than them.
hmm... I think it's the going faster that makes the collisions unpleasant. But I'm sure you're right about learning to ignore them.
sounds like a great day.
i should take more trips to
beautiful locations
to just read.
somehow it feels like more of an accomplishment. going somewhere and reading instead of just staying home and reading.

and those birds! the weird sounds they were making. that was something!
