No, I am not in mourning for the world, although it is tempting to feel that way sometimes. I like to be able to keep my laundry to one load per week. Also, my hands get spazzy when I'm tired or nervous or sometimes for no reason I can discern, and these are also the conditions under which I like to drink coffee. (Including the last one.) White trousers would be a bad idea, black trousers are a good idea. After today I am also tempted to renew the waterproofing in my watch.
