1. It’s been quite a week. For a while on Wednesday night, I thought it was really Friday night. I was sad when it was not.

2. This Baudelaire quote appeals to me, naturally:
One should always be drunk. That’s all that matters; that’s our one imperative need. So as not to feel time’s horrible burden that breaks your shoulders and bows you down, you must get drunk without ceasing. But with what? With wine, poetry, or virtue, as you choose. But get drunk.
