I cruised down some back roads today. Class let out early and I was off: it was like planets aligning. I went out to my mother's after class, and we drove out to a junk store. I bought a briefcase and a lantern. Afterwards we had lunch and I started back to town.
I plan on making something for a friend out of the case. The lantern is for another project.
Back in town I hung around the main campus, went to the library. Borrowed the Butterfly and the Bell Jar and The Possession by Albert Camus. I just recently finished The First Man and O Pioneers! by Willa Cather. Currently reading Naked Lunch by Burroghs. I'm an addict, and this weekend will only compound the enabling. That's right, the book sale I've been rubbing my palms for is finally upon us. I'm thinking of getting there ridiculously early and waiting in line, then making a beeline straight for the DVDs and then the Classics.
