I'm home sick from work today with a sore throat, a cough, and a sniffle. My throat feels like it's on fire, but there's so much to do that I don't think I can take the day off, not really. Here are the things I should try to get done today (I'll cross them off as I get them done):
Return Mona Lisa Overdrive to the Evanston library (it's waaaay overdue) Mail cookies and Mother's Day card to my mom (again, way overdue) Go get quarters for laundry Actually do laundry (I've been making the minimum payments on my laundry balance for a very long time, and it's threatening to spill out of the closet and take over the room) Buy food Email Scott Solter; find out if he's touring with the Mountain Goats Email my uncle, who sent me an amazing email weeks and weeks ago to which I haven't responded Email other person about books and music and stuff Vacuum and/or sweep
If I get all that done before 8:30, there are also lots of things I want to write about. I have a Wilco story as well as an amazing story about the kindness of strangers.
