I got up yesterday, made toast and read the Guardian, and then slowly realized that I had nothing else to do. Out of habit, I went to the library and got Clifford Geertz's The Interpretation of Cultures, Susan Sontag's Illness as Metaphor and AIDS and Its Metaphors, Edward Said's Orientalism, Kate Crehan's Gramsci, Culture, and Anthropology, and Martha Nussbaum and Amartya Sen's The Quality of Life. Something about the weight of my bookbag was oddly comforting, because I always do better with an endgame.

how's the Sontag?

I'm finishing up 'regarding the pain of others' tonight.
