the only earth?

what a stupid afternoon.

I went out to get a bagel for lunch and to mailed my dad some things to go with my laptop since he managed to have it fixed. I guess the Best Buy in Kalamazoo was more cooperative than the one here.

I don't know why, but a trip to the post office makes the day feel productive. The whole mail system amazes me. They had some advertisements that I found really funny. Too bad I can't find a picture of them online.

After that, I returned a $4 pin to the bookstore and some $14 pants to a used clothing store. I felt incredibly stupid, but I didn't really want them. I tried to sell the store credit to the person behind me in line, but the cashier didn't approve & the guy didn't have any cash.

On the way home, I was hoping to find an apartment with a sign saying, "hi josh, please live here." but I was not so lucky.
the only earth?


This morning, I read Joe Conason's Journal and noticed so many spelling errors that I actually emailed him. He replied, and when I looked again, all the words were spelled correctly. Either I was hallucinating, the page didn't load correctly, or maybe there's a secret editor who fixed the mistakes.
