brave new world  

Facebook informed me this morning that Osama bin Laden is dead. People seem happy about this. I can’t really say I’m happy–I don’t generally get a lot of delight out of people being dead–but the really cynical part of me is glad on his behalf that he’s dead and not alive to be tortured.

So if we live in a brave new world today, if you could do one thing to improve that world yourself, what would it be?

thinks to do (not to improve the brave new world, i’m afraid):
- clean the upstairs bathroom. possibly by firebombing it.
- ditto the computer room
- ever more laundry
- start Biali short story
- start ANGLES revisions
- salad shopping stupid frakking bank holidays
- email juliet, karen, laura
- wash diaper wraps
also
- clean kitchen (it never ends)
- make bread (thus necessitating cleaning the kitchen again…)

I think each of the tasks you have set yourself are very important parts of improving the world, especially the writing stories part of the list.

The big things get all the press, and create most of the chaos. It is doing the little things that keep the Universe running.
