there is a cute sticker on the first page of the old Whitman kiddie book. two 1950sish kids, holding a book open that reads, "PLEASE WASH YOUR HANDS B

Today, I only did one thing on my to do list - taking my mom's minivan to get tuned up. At about five, I went to the library to return some videos, started looking around, and before I knew it, it was nine o'clock and the library was closed. I went out of control and came home with two armfuls of books that I will probably not even read and videos which I will surely watch:

  • Crashing the Party, Ralph Nader
  • The Assassin's Cloak: An Anthology of the World's Greatest Diarists, ed. Irene and Alan Taylor
  • One Stick Song, Sherman Alexie
  • Essential Sufism, ed. James Fadiman & Robert Frager
  • Islam, Karen Armstrong
  • The Picture of Dorian Gray, Oscar Wilde
  • Walt Whitman's America, a beautiful 1964 children's book, selections and drawings by James Daugherty
  • Walt Whitman's America: A Cultural Biography, David S. Reynolds
  • Rosemary's Baby DVD
  • Touch of Evil DVD
  • Ken Burns' The Civil War VHS, part 1

The books are due back May 14 and the videos are due back April 30. In other news, I thinkThe Osbournes may very well be the funniest televison show ever. I have found love perhaps. Listened to P Funk this morning, felt the same lazy high as yesterday morning. Drank coffee, buzzed, danced to G. Love and thought about nothing. And that is where happiness lies - when we can truely think about nothing.
