11:32 pm - awareness
I've not been taking care of my cuticles lately, so they tear and get those annoying staph infections. Adding to the bother is the extent to which I still sunburn; cue more redness and swelling. Frustrating. But for a moment, I stopped and thought. My body, without my being particularly aware of it, is responding to threats. It's working to protect me against radiation from the sun; it's attacking foreign bodies that my torn cuticles admitted. In the most ridiculously literal sense of the words, my body is fighting for me. It shouldn't be as encouraging as it is, but there you have it.
Work is routine, although the reading is good. I've mostly been working on this women of color in academia issue, trying to find articles that also treat it as an issue of class, which is surprisingly hard. I'm more inclined to do the other research job that I have, the international criminal law articles. Still knitting, on a difficult lace shawl that just seems to take forever. The summer is heavenly.
Buffalo Bill's Orange Blossom Cream Ale tastes like soda pop. I'm going to Washington DC on the 18th (only for the weekend) and to Ireland on July 10th (for study abroad). The future's so bright I oughta wear shades.

Heck, man, I don't know. Next week? We still talking Wednesdays out in West Seattle? I think my schedule is a lot less complicated than yours and Kat's are, so you tell me.
