Things I thought about over this weekend:
my deep deep love of suction
steamed up mirrors
fear of getting terrycloth stuck to steamed up mirrors when wiped clean
dogs that bark at you in the dark
my deep deep love of graph paper
I read a handful of poems this weekend from Daisy Fried's My Brother is Getting Arrested Again
Edward Byrns has a positive take on this book here: One Poet's Notes
David Sewell has a more critical take on the book here: Coldfrontmag
I've been doing some skimming. It definitely doesn't qualify as reading Goethe. I thought you might like this observation:
"Lastly, it is also worthy of remark, that savage nations, uneducated people, and children have a great predilection for vivid colours; that animals are excited to rage by certain colours; that people of refinement avoid vivid colours in their dress and the objects that are about them, and seem to banish them all together from their presence."--Goethe, from the chapter "Pathological Colours" in Theory of Colours
The above quote is not a good example of the book, which is worth reading for phrases like "In cases of milky cataract," and "That portion of the retina on which the dark cross."
The third issue of Abraham Lincoln is out. Come and get it:

"Our biggest issue yet is so frisky and slippery and full of pseudo-information and prone to inappropriate touching it will make you SQUEAL!"
