Giving it a try... (see post below)


Wednesday, June 4, 2003

6:51 a.m. - Checked clock. Few more minutes to sleep.
7:03 a.m. - Checked clock. Few more minutes to sleep.
7:12 a.m. - Checked clock. Few more minutes to sleep.
<<[This continues for a while, so we'll skip ahead.]>>
7:26 a.m. - Roll out of bed, cursing clock and longing to stay in cool, dark room under soft, soft sheets.
7:46 a.m. - Check fish. He's still swimming. Drop in newly-purchased, vile-smelling food pellets. Fish swallows food whole, swims frantically, asking for more. (I do not feed more.)
7:48 a.m. - Bowl of Trix on the couch while cruising CNN, The Weather Channel and Style for morning wake-up television. Consider rising costs of random bits of antique dishware as direct result of Rachel Ashwell's assigning them significance: "Of course, they're in my palette."
7:56 a.m. - Dry hair.
8:03 a.m. - Say goodbye to snoozing husband, who sneaks single hand out of sheet-and-comforter cave to signal goodbye.
8:12 a.m. - Arrive at office. Deposit frozen lunch into community freezer, check e-mail, delete offers for "EXCITING TECHNOLOGY NEWS" and free shipping on orders over $150 from business-supply firm.
8:15 a.m. - Pointless staff meeting.
8:20 a.m. - Search for meaningful work.
8:35 a.m. - Pseudo-meaningful work found.
9:41 a.m. - Break from pseudo-meaningful work to get glass of water and eat pineapple chunks. Return to pseudo-meaningful work.
10:37 a.m. - Nice MSL project. Lovely stationary. Should she really be indicted? And why are we making such a big deal out of a single cork incident? I bet it was an honest mistake. Resolve to support Sosa and Cubs, notwithstanding standings.
11:45 a.m. - Dread lunch of tasteless, frozen meal. Call friend to meet at local dive. Friend must run errand, so pick up take-out and accompany her.
1:02 p.m. - Return from lunch. Search for pseudo-meaningful work.
2:13 p.m. - Continue last pseudo-meaningful project can find. Peruse liable links for new content, opt to emulate Sen. Graham (minus interesting meetings, commentary) by logging rudimentary elements of daily schedule.
2:35 p.m. - Complete log. Glad 22 minutes gone. Begin search for pseudo-meaningful work.

Perhaps the most prolific journaler ever, Sen. Bob Graham (FL - D) has filled approximately 4,000 3" x 5" "pocket-size, color-coded and spiral-bound" notebooks with the daily recordings of his life, the NY Times (free registration required) reports. NY Times reporter Carl Hulse notes that Graham staffers have expressed concern that the constant logging might be seen as "weird or wacky" by constituents should he mount a campaign for the presidency.
