Despite everything

Comments

Another chilly morning found me a little sick (again!) and a little achy (still!). In spite of all that, it’s been a very good day.

Had lunch with Eglantine, too-spicy cafeteria Thai (mea culpa, was a tad too liberal with the Sriracha); it was tasty, though. Made the trip in part to deliver a birthday gift but, unexpectedly, came away with a set of secondhand Staedtler-Mars graphic pens, a package of instant gom-tang noodles, and a ton of ink bottles (thanks Eggy!). Started off the day with a lovely touch of whimsy.

More shopping in the evening, and dinner with Nonours and Meklar. Good food and good conversation; felt like an early Thanksgiving.


The dangers of gift shopping became apparent last night, as I ended up grabbing a couple items for myself: The Elements of Typographic Style, by Robert Bringhurst, is a beautiful volume which promises to be a fascinating read (am I a font geek or what?). Also picked up a set of Cretacolor Aqua Monolith pencils in a nice wooden case, on sale at Utrecht. I blame Michelangelo.


Flying out to New York City again on Thursday for T-day proper and to take care of B. (who’s sicker than I am at the moment), which will be nice. In the meantime, it’s work, work, work. Sigh. That’s tomorrow, though. Today’s still a good day.
