failing like never before


Daily Log – 28 June 2008

A quick summary of today’s highlights in my life.

  • Threw away my old shoes. Last week, while riding my bike, I put one foot back and rested it on the tire while I was moving, thus melting off most of the heel. I also threw away three other pairs of very old shoes, one of them dating back to elementary school.
  • Mowed the lawn and did some yard work
  • Went to the library's book sale. The results were disappointing. I bought a copy of Danial Defoe's Moll Flanders and a beaten copy of Primo Levi's The Periodic Table. As sort of a community thingum, the library had a great mock pirate ship set up in the parking lot, and parking was surprisngly difficult to get. When I was little, we never had cool things like that at the library. Just books
  • Went to the movie theatre to see Get Smart with my dad, turned out that it was past matinee time. So we went to Costco, bought the tickets from Costco at matinee price for a regular screening. The movie was pretty amusing.
  • I saw a bit off the antique road show on TV, and wondered how much my old, massive tome on the Renaissance is worth. A quick Google search yielded disappointing results: $40, with the dust jacket (which I didn't have).
  • Lolled around a bit.

Less then four minutes to midnight now...
