(12:00 AM) | Adam Kotsko:
The Tuesday Love ExperimentThis week Richard and I are trading emotions -- he will be hating, while I in turn love.
I love actually having some money for a change. I love having all the extant episodes of The Wire season 5 "on demand." I love the fancy DVR cable box in general. I love that the writer's strike is over.
I love that this week I should be getting some definition on my exam lists. I love that the next couple months of my life will consist of one of my favorite activities: checking things off lists. I love that I'm making some good progress on Barth and can almost imagine finishing it.
I love that it's possible to mount an ISO file as a virtual CD-ROM drive. I love all the wonderful things BitTorrent allows me to share with my peers. I love that I made a great find in Powell's the other day -- Kafka's complete stories and journals in German, for $10 total. Now all I need is to stop being so bad at reading German.
I love sleeping with a fan. I love the new kind of toilet paper I bought, though I can't remember the brand now. I love the part on Curb Your Enthusiasm when Larry compares his wife's environmentally-sound toilet paper to the kind of thing you'd find "on a whaling vessel."
I love Little Debbie Valentine cakes.
