As expected, I feel…

As expected, I feel better this morning. Had a really nice evening with David (he made fried rice, new dish, woohoo! :-) (he's a very good cook, but occasionally gets in just a little bit of a rut :-) and just didn't think about work for a while. He tromped me at Scrabble again, too. I'm finding it harder and harder to believe that I've actually beaten him once. Lately he's been winning by a good hundred points every game. I think he ought to let me and Heather team up against him. (I suggested this, and he claimed that he would *still* stomp us. What was that saying about pride and falls?)

I spent some time reading mouthorgan again this morning. An interesting discussion of the porn/erotica distinction, which I, with effort, refrained from jumping into again, and a neat piece on on-line chats, with the question of why so often they are composed of silence. I couldn't resist a long answer to that one, so stop over to their comments page if you're interested. I mostly talked about the game, truth or dare.

There's a fabulous reading coming up at Mills next week, that I encourage any Bay Area people to attend. It's the AWP (Associated Writing Programs) Spring Reading, a benefit that is featuring Chitra Divakaruni and Bharati Mukherjee. Two South Asian writers who have both written work I enjoyed, especially Mukherjee's _Holder of the World_. It's $5 for students, $10 for others, and it's for a good cause. Wednesday, April 22nd, 7 p.m., call 510-430-2236 for more details.

Well, I'm going to see if I can squeeze in a little more e-mail handling (still very behind) before sailing class. Today we capsize! The lake is very very cold, but at least the sun is out. Think good thoughts at me around 2-ish (non-getting-fouled-up-in-the-sail thoughts, and not-having-the-boat-turn-turtle thoughts, and especially not-having-a-defective-life-preserver thoughts :-).

Tonight, dinner with Arthur, tomorrow morning and afternoon work, tomorrow night, Becca's birthday, Sunday morning and afternoon work. That's as far as I have planned out...let's see if I stick to it.
