on account of fucking around on the internet, i had to forgo a shower this morning in order to show up to work on time. but i am wearing all clean clothes (green checkered boxers, black jeans, black socks, beat up leather sketchers, black thorn-heart sweatshirt, wife-
beater) & brushed my teeth (something with whitening?) & put on deoderant (cool rain gel!), so i'm cleaner than any average european. crowing like a rooster! i had some lashing-out dreams last night about jenny- like, she bought me a yacht but i threw her wooden shoes over the side & told her if we were just going to be friends that she could sail home in those! & also got a foot massage & i'm not entirely clear on the rest. so we muddled grouchy when i clambored out of bed. better now though. better now. the life of the party! a robot for fight! or like a blue ring recluse, a spider with a bite that packs a wallop! also, last night i decided that mary marvel should eat one of swamp thing's sex yams. so it isn't all doldrums.
upon the earlier proclimation that today was to be christmas, i spent a large portion of the afternoon bustling from brooklyn shop to brooklyn outlet, buying gifts for jenny (& one secretly for bugs moran!). wrapped them up in red paper, stuck neopets gift tags on them, grabbed david & came home, shouting "merry christmas!" david had made apple & walnut cake for the occasion, as well as a loaf of bread. the swag i brought jenny includes a skirt, a coat, a dvd (shallow hal), & two books (rock crystal & an mfk fisher book...mkf? whoever.) & the dvd i got david was elf, which is such a great new york christmas it isn't even funny. merry christmas! ho ho ho, i kept shouting all night. we made mulled wine, full on, with fruit & everything, ordered chinese, & then watched the gilmore girls & wonderfalls. jenny teased me by saying that i'd just remember this as the christmas she didn't get me anything. anyhow, david left & then jenny started to make me angry, so here i am! not like, i'm still angry. i left before i even got angry once! you'd think there would be more to say about christmas! david texted me to say that there was a guy on my cornor wearing a santa hat, no joke. further evidence of my far reaching powers. now if we can only climb to the top of this ziggurat!
