agenda & distraction

Being a reader is sort of like being president, except reading involves fewer state dinners, usually. You have this agenda you want to get through, but you get distracted by life events, e.g. books arriving in the mail/World War III, and you are temporarily deflected from your chosen path.

~ Nick Hornby, The Polysyllabic Spree

And somewhere along the deflected path includes orchestrating a kill-or-capture mission of the most wanted terrorist in the world. Isn’t that the truth.

On a style diary note, I wore this yesterday.


By mid-day I tied the long wrap.

One thought on “agenda & distraction

  1. Great colors to be wearing – I hope to wear something today that represents my love for this country of ours. On a less serious note (much less!), that’s the same BCBG wrap that I have and you got yours cheaper. You’ve given me a great idea for a June thrift workshop. ; )
