The Burning Questions

What should I wear tomorrow?

If I spend three hours baking bread instead of walking twenty minutes to the store and back and then writing for two and a half hours, am I still being productive? (answer: of course!)

If I went for another job, which ones are more exciting than sitting in a chair typing?

Who can possibly save my brain, right now? and maybe give me something to listen to while I cook.  Anybody?

Speaking of which - what should I cook?

Should I buy this non-book item?  What do other customers say about it?

Is there someplace I can hear the whole song before I download it?

Ooooh, and while I'm here, can I see Christopher Walken tapdancing again?

I wonder whether IKEA has anything new to get this place organized once and for all?
