Blah

Very tired. Need to do several pieces of writing. Not looking forward to dealing with flatmates. If you know of other stuff not going well, then you know that too.

Need to write, or I'm lots of talk. Need to rest, need to eat. Need to read so I can get these books back to the library, and need to call bus line and a Queenstown backpackers and Bill tomorrow so I can have a vacation happen.

Blah.
