It’s too bloody cold out there. My goodness. The high temperature for a day shouldn’t be in the single digits. ACK. I cannot seem to get warm in this apartment, no matter what I do. I’m under three different big blankets at the moment, and the heat is cranked up, but I’m still cold. Goddamn attic apartment. The insanely cold murkiness is making me depressed and sleepy all of the time.
The snow is very pretty, though, at least:
And I got to see BFF Kate the other day! We had sushi together. I love me some Kate!:
And this was my Friday lunch. Yummy!:
Kingsley Amis’s Lucky Jim is one of my favorite books ever. I relate to it so much for some reason (I suppose just the academia stuff and the frustrated, stuck feeling and all that. Also, I make faces in secret, just like the title character. Silly!):
I read it in a grad school seminar, and I found this annotation I made during that seminar:
Yeah, it says “Christine’s presence gives him balls, theoretically.” Ha, yeah. What the hell?
But it’s a favorite and I read it again and again. Problem is, I have SO many books in my to-read pile that I should never be re-reading books, you know? But it’s comforting.
& Here’s me, last week. I love that hat and that shirt so much!:
Also? Hello Kitty gloves are BADASS. You know it:
:) There’s more to post, and I’ll do that soon. For now, xo.
