today was pokey. i did manage a long workout that left me light-headed as all hell leaving the y. i drove out to the ranch to pick up ms ellie & we watched 'Black Swan.' i did love it, its strangeness, its many levels, kitsch, & savagery. i met up w/ drew krew at neil's bar for a drink afterwards. now im home watching the last season of deadwood. & writing. & enjoying my grlbears. i ordered a whole slew of books from spd for my christmas present to myself, & im nearly out-of-my-skin excited for them to appear at my doorstoop.
