but i'm feeling completely uninspired lately. bags and shoes don't excite me anymore. i'm tired of wanting furniture i can't afford for an apartment i don't have. i thought for a second earlier i would check out ebay for tacky, kitsch-type things, which always used to make me feel better. just two days ago, manny the menorah could do it for me. but i get to ebay, and i am too apathetic to seek out a good starting spot. since when can i not find one thing on ebay?
maybe i should turn off the nina simone. i have a feeling that is acting as some huge physical and emotional depressant. i just want to crawl under my desk and go to sleep. and eat.
i'll try to muster up the energy/motivation/materialization to get it together.

i've always wanted to cover an ugly light fixture in the center of a room with a parasol like this (with the handle cut down short so it would just be a few inches from the ceiling). i think it would look fun.

i learned today from my friend izaak that the reason my corn won't digest is because i'm eating the endosperm, not the shell. or something. ...and now we all know why.
but that has nothing to do with these fun little corn holders. i hate loose corn (loose?) but love corn on the cob.
...which makes me and the misto a perfect match. thank you, hungrygirl, for the tip. (for fellow hungry girls not in the know, hungry girl is your go-to girl for healthy eating concerns. she can provide you with a daily e-mail full of fun tips and recipes, plus she reviews lots of things and tells you what's good and what's not. end endorsement.)

i know everyone hates me because i constantly talk about new york. but look at this pretty scarf and tell me what's not to love! and, yeah, it's a scarf. i realize i'm not 85, but the scarf is still pretty.

i just want to go! somewhere! i am tired of working, and i've only been doing it for 10 months.
after the longest day on earth at work, i just wanted to come home and make myself some kind of potent drink. something to help alleviate my headache and put me to sleep. but no. what do i do instead? i stop at 7-11 and buy milk, frosted flakes (the single serving, disposable cup kind) and, of course, styrofoam cups. that's right. i'm too apathetic to even face my dishes, so i now resort to drinking chocolate milk from styrofoam cups. a year ago, i couldn't drink from anything but glass. is this what the real world is supposed to do to you?
