Things I Need to Do

This is the round library at Oxford University. It's a manipulated Polaroid I took when I was there for a visit.

While I was visiting the campus, my tour guide told me how they eat "square meals" there. Not just grains, proteins, veggies, and the like, rather they actually all pick the fork up at the same time and chow down in the same split second (kind of like the army.) After the tour, I met some of the students and we went out drinking. Very different from what I expected. I kind of thought kids who ate square meals at school would not drink, boy was I wrong (we got tanked but then, as you know, the Brits are famous for having peg legs.) I had so much fun there and now, seeing this, makes me realize that I really need to go back again, for another visit.

Other things I really need to do:

Start jogging again, get my floors finished (they came yesterday to measure, progress here, yes?) eat more collard greens, get a new pair of black shoes (no really. Mine fell apart. Blog for another day maybe) get outside and take some autumnal pictures (while the leaves are red) clean up my house, do more laundry, run the dishwasher (this one's more pressing. Anybody got a clean glass I can borrow? Like right now? I'm thirsty) finish more photographic projects, send out more portfolios, travel more, read more, learn how to cook, take care of my car, walk the dog, water the plants in the garden, get a winter coat (it's almost cold outside) clear off the TiVo, bake a cake (I love cake) design a new website, rent a good movie...

Gosh, if I actually did any of that, I might not have time left to blog. Aren't you glad I'm lazy? (Nevermind, don't answer that.)

Until next time...

I know what you mean, I have a long list of "things to do" ... but yes, you're right! When would we have time to blog, or play on Flickr?

And I didn't even add "get new shoes" to the list. I really, really, want some new shoes.
