... I spent my first day at the new branch. I will be spending the next few Saturdays there, in anticipation of the closure of my "branch" at the end of the day of 6 April. Thereafter, I will be at the new branch every day. In light of the fact that only one bus goes that far south, and comes every hour, and would take two hours if I include the connections, I will be "carpooling" (read: be ferried about) by one of two possible coworkers (one lives 3 blocks away, the other lives just west of the area I live in). Le boulot, c'est le boulot, but my goodness it felt good to work in an environment that wasn't radiating dust and thick with the screaming of children.

... I found, in my copy of the Aeneid (translated), two perfectly 4-ply folded papers, crisp and new. They were letters I wrote to myself back... well, I guess it would have been the autumn of 2006. That was not a good time in my life. These letters spooked me out, a bit. They were very coherent, but they felt completely... not of my mind, or my person. Like someone else entirely wrote them. I went through the other books I had for my two part-time courses at Concordia that fall, but I did not find any more letters. This disappointed me.

... I modelled for myself (in the mirror) the shirts I bought at lululemon. I went shopping "on business" there, since I discovered that sports tanks at Running Room, etc., were all just as expensive as lulu, and roughly 800% more hideous. (I joined a BOSU boot camp at a nearby ladies' gym. I needed cardio, and a reason to get my butt out of the house.) I ended up buying one "strictly for exercising" cross-back tank, and one white-and-pale-grey wide-striped tank-thing that I can scarcely explain except to say that it's about the most flattering thing I've ever owned. My shoulders look pretty elegant in it. On a whim, I decided to also don my jean shorts. They felt amazing on. I was really happy for a moment. I can't wait for weather warm enough to bust out the not-pants and not-sweaters.
