I feel like the internet is making me angry these days. And I feel like i have no more original thoughts. I think I might need to spend more time reading books and writing in paper journals. I think I need to not be having the same three conversations on the internet. I need to get away from pervasive memes and just… be alone for a while. We’ll see. I’m not going anywhere...
i wonder if i need to take an internet break
I did that last year for a week and it helped. I’m not sure if I could still do it? Hmm.
apparently farmers' markets are like crack to me.
So while looking up the costs of CSA deliveries, I discovered that there was a farmers’ market every Tuesday from 8-12 not two miles from my apartment. “What’s that?” I said to myself. ”Fresh produce available right as I’m finishing work?” Why yes, I said back to myself, because I live alone.

Dear “Entertainment!” Magazine, With nothing on hand to do at work, and no other reading material available to me, I took you from the elliptical machine nearest my desk and decided to page through you. Did you know, Entertainment, that it takes 20 minutes for one to read your magazine? Also, this is the Special Double Issue. Also, I was not entertained. Love, KT
