There’s a new pope, and I don’t really care, but I did think this description (from a reporter I heard on the radio) of how he was going to spend his time in those first couple of days was telling: “The new pope will have some time to himself. He’ll use it to pray, meditate, talk to himself…” Yeah, I imagine he’ll be talking to himself a lot.
It’s Sunday afternoon, and I should probably be doing something useful to prepare for book club this Friday (like plan the appetizers or iron the new curtains – can I get away without doing that?), but I don’t want to. I want to play on the internet and read my book. Especially now that I’ve just spent entirely too much time looking for a tablecloth that will fit our dining room table once the extension is in. Tablecloths are not that exciting. Not like curtains.
