Succeeded at getting back to sleep, now up at a reasonable hour; again not looking forward to the day. Doing payroll again; it happens every other week, so this is no surprise. Wondering what today's manufactured emergency is going to be. Wondering if I'm going to be able to keep the day down to 12 hours in the office, and what the soul-killing accusations of the day are going to be.

The clerk quit yesterday, but allowed herself to be jollied into changing her mind and staying.

Balancing talking and listening

A possible fundamental truth: That we need to express as much as we absorb. I don't know if this is true; I want to consider it. If I listen very intensely, do I then need to talk for as much value of meaning as I've absorbed?

*My* priorities:

Statement of REsearch Interests
Letter to Gabe
Resume and job hunt
Letter to bosslady

*Her* priorities:

Other stuff

So I mix 'em; do a lot of hers and a little of mine.

Got home sevenish and had a good evening with Zack, watching roughly the first two-thirds of Malcolm X by Spike Lee. There's a *lot* of movie there.

Feels good to be out of the office for a while.
