a mostly stable behemoth

it's a rainy day here in the dirty dirty. i'm off from work today and have thus far started the exciting task of organizing the teetering piles of old bills. my company for the hour is The Princess Bride and i just heard the line "mostly dead is slightly alive." sifting through credit card and student loan statements makes me feel like i'm mostly broke, but if i use hollywood logic, that could also mean i'm slightly unbroke.

i think what i am is slightly unstable, but i digress.

i've been in blog reading overdrive the past few days so what i'm about to say is a direct result of spending too much time on the internet. i've decided to participate in the 101 things in 1001 days challenge. i shudder at the thought of admitting such a thing, but you know what they say, one of the best ways to reach a goal is to make an external commitment by telling the world. so there you go world (of 5 readers), i now, after 4 days of perusing lists and attempting self-exploration, have a list of 101 things that will somehow enrich my life. truth be told, i'm a sucker for lists, so just the pure act of having to maintain this behemoth (that has many sub-lists) will be a compulsive pleasure.

while i have decided to share the act of undertaking 101 things, i have decided not to share the actual list. motivational and/or supportive comments are my own personal kryptonite (along with anything that resembles a compliment). so if you have something positive to say, please veil it in sarcasm or a nice shroud of pessimism. when i manage to check things off the list, i will most likely share them, but for now, it will remain confidential. i will say this, the word unicycle appears in item #56.

Unicycle! I think Sopo might still have one lying around...in case you were needing one to borrow...

I hope you're doing well! I saw you walking into the good ol' Emory hospital the other day. Probably getting lunch. Not surgery. ;)
