Datebook Pages

The quote (just one this time): "There are three intolerable things in life—cold coffee, lukewarm champagne, and over-excited women." —Orson Welles (1915-85)

It's usually a pretty safe bet that on Monday morning, I'll stop at the Dunkin Donuts for coffee on my way to the office from the train station. I did this Monday spread on an earlier Monday when the cup was close at hand to act as a model.

With the house on the market, I find myself doing all the little home improvement stuff that I'd put off for so long. It's much more fun to buy a stack of books than floor registers for your heating ducts, but they tell me prospective home buyers will be wooed by duct covers more than piles of books—go figure.

Went a little quote crazy this time around:

"Truth is more of a stranger than fiction." —Mark Twain (1835-1910)
Excellent twist on an old classic.

"We are here and it is now. Further than that all human knowledge is moonshine." —H.L. Mencken (1880-1956)

"There are few nudities so objectionable as the naked truth." —Agnes Repplier (1855-1950)
I sense a theme.

"Have no fear of perfection—you'll never reach it." —Salvador Dali (1904-89)
Well, that's a relief.

I was inspired to go to Looptopia (an all night celebration of culture), until the end of the work day that Friday when all I really wanted to do was go home, put my feet up and pet the cat. Maybe next year.
