it's been a long day. circumstances are such that I will be running around tomorrow trying to get bows tied on things before I unplug for the rest of the month. there are plenty of things I should be doing around the house right now, but I just want to be lazy and sleep. tivo didn't hear about a lineup change and recorded two hours of celebrity impersonator family feud. the re-plugged tire is behaving well. the "basil and garlic" sauce-from-a-jar I had on pasta for dinner actually had whole cloves of garlic in it. and the 布団 is calling my name, so I'm gonna take a nap.
