The other night I was bored and clicked on the GarageBand program on my computer, just to see what it was.  Turns out you can record sound with it.  For a long time I had been longing—I'd even go so far as to say yearning—for a computer program that would allow me to do just that, in order that I might record myself reading poems which I could put on my iPod and then listen to when I'm out and about.  (Right now, sitting here, I'm merely about, not out.  Hence the italicized "and" just now.)

Way too many people, and I mean way too many, are landing on this blog through a search for "bondage dairy".  I suppose I could google it myself and find out what it is the easy way, but though I've seen some weird things on the internet, I'm not sure I can handle bondage dairy.

Yesterday and today I completed the first chapter of Sentimental Education.  Once again I got pissed and frustrated that I was having such a hard time enjoying and understanding a classic book.  Pissed that it always takes me an hour to read four pages.  Not too happy either with the fact that there are people who are smarter than me.

I also gave a few moments thought to wondering when I might wrap up Denis Johnson's Already Dead, which I think I started about a year ago.  I've got around 70-odd pages left I think.
