i spend all day in front of a computer only to come home and spend all night in front of a computer. it's a wonder i'm not blind by now with little stumps where my hands used to be.

i was walking to work the other day when i saw a woman, leaning back from the weight of her unborn child in her belly, walk into the liquor store on the corner. i dunno. something just struck me about that.

oh, and about those liquor stores in my town. and i call it a town because even though it's technically part of boston it's got all these low buildings and a decidedly 'town' like feel.

so, there are about a billion liquor stores around here. actually, some of them are liquor marts. one of them is even called "liquor mart." but really they're just these large places that would be grocery stores if they had food in them, but are filled instead with all manner of alcohol. and i know this is a college town and all that, but really, is there that much of a need for this much alcohol? next to my apartment there is a large neon liquor store. and RIGHT BEHIND IT there is another one. they share the same parking lot. how messed up is that?

welcome to frat-town usa.

sure makes for some fun drunk people on the weekends though.

in other news, work is still plowing along, and i am faced once again with the "it's just a job" syndrome. it's really too bad that i'm not juiced about my job but i guess that'll come along in the future, and for now i'll just dream of a day when i do nothing but the work that i want to do.

and go dancing. and things.

(i can dance - who knew? just thought i'd mention it again)

i am going to chicago next weekend to hang out with a whole lot of people i don't know. i like to say that i'm going to have lots of sex with lots of hos in chicago, but i know that it's a) not entirely accurated and b) not going to even have the most remote chance of happening. it does however serve as a reminder to me that if i continue to just sit around and drool on my computer that i'm going to be a very, very sad monkey.

observation today: the grime here in this neck of boston is worse than the manhattan grime because it doesn't move. the same garbage has been on the sidewalk for a month. eww.
