a propos of nothing


of spending Seattle in Memorial Day (reverse the nouns), with my brother and my cousins, I am spending it here on my Chicago-based couch, watching television and taking antibiotics, in the second installment of Ear Infection 2009. I am watching Eileen’s copy of the BBC Pride and Prejudice, and maudlinly identifying with Lady Catherine de Bourgh’s punchline heiress-daughter, whose “sickly constitution” prevents her from being presented at court.

Earlier, I watched Beyonce videos. You certainly don’t see her sitting around feeling sorry for herself cause she has an ear infection.
