I seem incapable of keeping my room in any semblance of order. I initiate schedules, I compile lists, I stumble upon brilliant new systems of organisation...and then a week later everything is in a shambles once more. I am not, by nature, a neat persom. And mine is not a neat mind. Perhaps because of this, I crave structure and order, I fantasise about a life well-planned. Here is how all my planning came to nothing over the past week:
- The New Yorker on the gentle art of procrastination (oh how appropriate).
- You can use your iPod as a writing tool, and Shenee Howard shows us how.
- USB cufflinks are kinda cute - and I like the tasteless element. I wanna buy a pair of these for John Waters.
- V. S. Naipaul's book about religion in Africa is a must-read. I ache for it.
- Building community seems to be a uniquely modern concern. Read this article for a high-tech spin from Blue Glass.
- Kimberley Turner enunciates some of the horrors of blogging. I am probably guilty of all.
