i had a lovely party friday night and then woke up saturday with an obnoxious cold/flu bug.
so. i read:
- delillo's white noise.
- gates' jernigan.

i learned:
- sudafed non-drowsy 12-hour medicine amplifies my sense of hearing and makes me paranoid, further amplified by
- reading those two particular books in 36 hours.

good stuff.

here, little rodent.

- x2.
- home-made mousetraip.

last night:
- less-than-successful french-fried eggplant.
- x-men.

- grace paley stories.
- kobo abe's woman in the dunes (masterful emotional manipulation).

- happy brunch with parents.

light leaks galore.

at the whitney biennial, i was pretty fond of amy blakemore's photographs. she works with an obsolete plastic camera called diana. after some googling last night: lo, there's a whole community of artists working with these toy cameras. i sense a $20 purchase in my future.

techno-post continuity: looklooklook. please watch until he does the eyebrow twitch. you'll see.

amusments, parks and otherwise.

- new favorite roller coaster: nitro.
- visuals: a gallery opening.
- more visuals: beckett's endgame (oh the flea, the flea!).
- briefly mingled: basement art party.
- hoorah: weekend with brother #2.
- unanticipated success: stir-fried tofu with vegetables.

- perpetual: reading, reading, and going to readings (zawacki, others).
