i love malcolm gladwell. read his books if you wanna know why. and also listen to his bit on this american life
about how he became a journalist. c'est si amusant.
also even though my love and hope for all good things from the president-elect has not waned, i wanted to have my fabulous shoe icon back. it's a new year. and obama will get by on other things than my default icon.
and oh yes, i had the most intense new year's celebration. i ran to ikea and bought a set of bookshelves! yes i did! and then i put them together! yes. it's true. all by myself. which if you know ikea, is actually rather a feat. and then i transferred all the books and stuff from the old shelves to the new ones. how can one person do so much you ask? the mind boggles . i also assembled a lamp. i know! a whole lamp. and touched up the paint in my bathroom. and cleaned out the cupboard under the kitchen sink. and all before midnight. without a fairy godmother. i don't know either. it must be the head cold.
now i'm going to do something really frivolous like get into bed and read! i know, i know. i live on the edge. watch me as i run with scissors and drink milk from the carton*.
good night and have a pleasant 2009.**
