There a lots of things I want to do before the world ends. Here are a few:
1. Go back to Parson's Bakery for more cookies since the dozen I got this afternoon were all seized by others as soon as they were seen.
2. Get that fabric stash down to a reasonable amount. That has been slowly taking place over the last few years but still have a ways to go.
3. Aperture. Damn it. It's almost there, but not quite.
4. Lose ten pounds. Oh wait, it won't matter. If the world has ended no one would notice.
