- there are christmas decorations up in the lobby of my building. but pre-thanksgiving? ah well, it nonetheless makes me all mitteny.
- i went to brooklyn for the second time in two weeks. i felt worldly.
- last night i ate pumpkin soup (yes, still) and three ears of corn-on-the-cobb.
- while eating, i used seven napkins. i suppose the fact that the napkins are stolen from the mcdonald's near my house and about one-third the size of real napkins mitigates this a bit. that's .78 real napkin per cobb of corn. (but still.)

with a fuzzy feeler.

happy happy birthday, dickiedoo.

here are some links especially for you.
- if i could, i would give you a ghillie suit.
- science girl, science girl, tell me how these work.
- lizard-meat hysteria. i'll leave it at that.

[i should mention that these links came from the manhattan user's guide.]

a situation in orange.

i cooked. quite a bit.

- wiener schnitzel.
- roasted pumpkin seeds.
- pumpkin soup.

i now have about two gallons of pumpkin soup. maybe one and a half.

and i still have one pumpkin left. perhaps it's time to venture into pies. or perhaps next weekend i will make another two gallons of pumpkin soup.

yesterday, i was walking around fort tryon park doing my photo thing. there's a lookout there where you can watch the sun set over the GW bridge. a man had surrounded himself with the following things:
- a plastic cup of white wine.
- a paper bag of nuts (for the squirrels, of course).
- an am/fm radio playing the classical station.

dirt is clean when there is a volume.

i've been lax for no reason. but.

i hosted an impromtu party on friday:
- corn pancakes.

also recently, i (i, i):
- skinned my knees.
- typed on my smith-corona super sterling typewriter.
- washed a cat.
- got scratched by said cat while trying to wash him.
- cooked more squash and some salmon.
