i'm so confused right now. about just about everything. well, except that 1) jack is awesome and 2) i am very lucky in many regards. jack is right about the ipod, but not for the reasons he originally stated.

i feel like one tool i need to solve all my problems is a wall-sized whiteboard and a week off to mind-map everything. but my problems are not so bad, so i will not declare them in a litany. i find myself reading all your entries, my friends, and thinking, "wow, that's so cool. i wish i were doing that."

a gentle man needed 80¢ to get out of the metro station. i had four quarters. money and benedictions were exchanged. it was a simple moment that brightened both our days.

things i have been putting off: writing bills, writng to my cousin, cleaning, filing. i am currently reading: To The Best Of My Ability by James M. McPherson. it's very heavy. literally.

Well, we need to get together and plan an a-word of some sort. Most likely an inexpensive one, but they can be had.

I want to go find a buddhist temple on a mountainside and meditate... but I don't think that's what you mean. :)

you rock (somewhat off-topic)
I find myself thinking you're beset by hormones these days, lady. Not to discount your feelings or problems, but you're one of the people I point to when I'm thinking either a) how cool I am to have such awesome friends or b) how loserly I am in comparison. You run a bookclub! You play softball! You have fascinating politics and aren't afraid to yell at people about them! In short, there are a thousand million ways in which you rock.

Thank you... *sniff*

My imaginary whiteboard has those things you listed in green, and then in red 338745683456 other things I haven't made progress on. I think I should get used to the fact that the red list is always going to dwarf the green list, because there's not enough time in the universe.

Remember how to play the harp? Yeah, me neither. ;)

You: write and perform plays, have the guts to have awesome theme parties, are a vocal activist and freaking amazing web designer with a fantastic eye for style. How's THEM APPLES??

Re: you rock (somewhat off-topic)
As long as your red list represents what you care about, then you're doing well. Your system isn't complex enough - see, each red and green item needs to be given a figure that represents its net usefulness/desirability by comparing the cost in time/money/whatever to your desire to accomplish it. Then the red list generally comes out on top. Lists need to have value attached to them in order to be comparable.

Yes, I also rock. I forget it sometimes, but it's true. ;) And I do sorta remember how to play the harp, but I can't tune mine for shit.

OK so you know this means you have to come over when I get my giant whiteboard and help me.

I think you'll need a spreadsheet instead of a whiteboard. :D

A spreadsheet is too confining and mathematical! I need something more organic. :)
