favorite student mispellering of the quarter

We must learn to embarrass life to its fullest,and except others as they are rather than how we wish they were.

Day of thanks, check. Nice long weekend, check. Goals and visions, check. In addition, good tidings.

Plus, a delicious letter from my friend in Germany (I forgot how much a handwritten letter feels like art). And a nice visit from a boating-reading friend (he shows up, he leaves; he shows up, he darts away; he shows us, anchor lifts) who has made a 3-book reading bet with me, involving only the best treats if we reneg, and the best treats if we don't. Also, I've ordered and received the books two of my classmates at SAIC have written and published: they look beautiful, make me both jealous and incredibly proud, and I'm feeling smitten with the idea of reading them with coffee+baileys. The end of this quarter is clockwork crazy, and I am tic tic-tocking my way forward.

p.s. I love the new way Herald has of growling and howling when I give him kisses. It doesn't get more pithy than that.

I'm glad I got to read it before it was taken down. ;)
