Day 663

Saturday | December 21st, 2013


This shot (top) is proof that though I may not have written much over the summer and fall, I still had a camera on me at all times. Imagine that shot as a 17MB .tif. And imagine that that shot is actually a square with more grass and sky at the top and bottom. And imagine that that shot looks fucking righteous on a proper screen in a real portfolio. Now imagine me crying over having to hack this beauty up to fit at the top of this page because I slept and fiddle-faddled away my Saturday.

That’s not entirely true.

I got up around 13.00, which is a right and proper time for me to wake up on a non-working, non-vacuuming, non-appointmenting sort of day. I got my shower thanks to a replacement part for the boiler.

I drank some of my new coffee; I finally picked some up yesterday on the way home. I worked on writing here. I thought about working on work and almost started twice, then checked my phone to see if anyone cool was messaging me only to find students complaining about their grades being A and not A+. Emphasis on the ‘s’ because usually either one student complains or no one complains. Today, I’m blessed with three. Tomorrow, I’m likely to have more because I posted the grades Friday afternoon and got my first complaint Friday night. Surely there’s more bitching to be had over this.

This Old Hanok

When we had the bathroom done, we wanted to design our own window for the part of the wall which straddles the storage space along the side of the house. This way we could have clean airflow through
