A Week's Hindsight

Learned: the word lalochezia, the use of foul language to relieve stress
Saw: Phèdre (decent acting, horrible play)
Heard: Anita O’Day sing You Came a Long Way from St. Louis
Made a (birthday) wish: can’t say what, but it wasn’t for me
Bought: wrinkle cream (see above)
Read: The Blind Assassin by Margaret Atwood
Skipped: the office Christmas party
Drank: Rioja
Received: the muscular blooms pictured 
Resolved: sit-ups!
Honored: with a Pushcart Prize nomination for my poem ‘Gacela of Ash
Watched: Lord of the Rings: The Two Towers (umpteenth time)
Rolled my eyes at: person who followed a limping old man into the supermarket shouting at him for parking in a handicap spot without a sticker
Laughed: about these truths
Cried: yup

Pithiness of the week: Our virtues are most frequently but vices in disguise (La Rochefaucauld)

I stole this roundup idea from philoku, a German design blog. Resolve to learn German!
