today was pretty uneventful: I took pictures of the big red flowers outside my window, went to my office where I was only inspired to put the near overwhelming stacks of articles and papers into the folders in the file cabinet. during this endeavor, I threw away lots of old things, which made me feel very productive in terms of keeping the recycling bin useful. My real motivation for going was filling out a travel voucher so that I don't go broke from the S.F. trip.
later, I went home and took a nap, watched a DVD (xx/xy), bought some groceries (several duplicate items -- how is this possible when I have almost no food in the kitchen? I really don't know.), had some tea at Victrola, and read some articles that I've been carrying around with me for the past couple weeks.
my ikea plant (gardenia?) is almost certainly dead, but I'll give it a week to perk up before sending it out into the wild to fend for itself.
