disc golf

Let me tell you something about disc golf--I suck ass at disc golf. There was definitely a time when I could throw a frisbee, and that time is not now, because I am terrible at the disc golfing. I did get to spend a lot of time in a sunny, sunny park while figuring out the extent of my terribleness, so at least there's that. (According to Firefox spell check, 'terribleness' is a real word, which doesn't seem right somehow.)

I'm flying back to New York tonight, which is lame times a million. Well, the bars open until 4am, the 24 hour delis, the museums, the beautiful old buildings, the history, the mad amounts of diverse people, the stores, etc, are obviously not lame. But I have to go back to work and back to all the responsibilities that I've been avoiding for the past week, and I'm not really "about" that.

Books purchased and/or borrowed this week:
The Plague - Camus
Ficciones - Jorge Luis Borges
Double or Nothing - Raymond Federman
Commies, Crooks, Gypsies, and Poets - Jan Novak

  1. I think I already have Ficciones, but obviously you deserve your own copy.

    And I think it is funny that terribleness is a real word, since I was watching Scrubs, and the word "fearitude" was used, which was translated into "mieditud." Good times.

  2. Disc golf? What will they think of next... Ice-Basketball. I mean i support something that has been around for a while but when we start having fusion sports i imagine the next thing is fusion stock investing where you get back money and pogs or something ridiculous like that. But your book reading is quite nice. Like how Kira and I comment. We obviously are doing a lot down here.w

  3. I figured you might have Ficciones, but I wanted to buy something in Spanish, and it was either Borges or Spanish-language romance novels. Which might not have been so bad. But Ficciones has 'La Biblioteca de Babel,' so I had to get it. (and mieditud is pretty great.)

    And Max, if I got pogs back from stock investing, I would be ALL OVER THAT SHIT. Oh man! What if you could invest WITH POGS? I would be a millionaire. Because I have a lot of stupid, stupid pogs.
