Plus and minus

April 30, 2008
  • On the minus side, they were out of Haribo Goldbären when I had a hankering for gummi bears, so I had to settle for some Happy Cola instead.
  • On the plus side, there was a stray bear in the bag of cola bottles! Hooray for assembly-line screwups.
  • On the minus side, Olsson’s was all out of Boulez and Stockhausen recordings yesterday, when I was eager to buy some at Maurizio Pollini’s recommendation.
  • On the plus side, I got my hands on some fine Chopin works I’d been meaning to buy—and it just so happened that the Ben & Jerry’s across the street from Olsson’s was handing out ice cream cones for free.
  • On the minus side, I am getting an officemate soon, so my time alone in this room is coming to an end.
  • On the plus side, I moved some stuff around and snagged an extra bookcase that was lying around, so now I’m basically walled off in a little cave.
