I’m at about 80%

Slowly on the mend, I think. Lots of sleep is definitely helping.

Also, Mom gets every mail-order catalog known to humanity, so I’ve been mindlessly paging through them, looking at the pretty pictures. I’m glad that the latest McSweeney’s was a typical day’s mail, including a couple of catalogs. Now every time I see something in one of Mom’s catalogs and start thinking “Gosh, that sounds neat,” I just remember McSweeney’s spot-on parody of catalog copy language, and I am cured of the desire.

    Oh, you like catalogs, do you? Well, have I got a mountain of ’em. Arleen is an order catalog junkie, so we get, easily, three catalogs a day. There are often duplicates for Jenn because she made the mistake of telling Arleen that she likes to read them before going to bed. So, bless her generous soul, Arleen keeps us well stocked. And you wouldn’t BELIEVE the tacky crap out there. WOW!

    You want, we got.

    Making fun of things is one of my family’s principal means of interaction. God it’s awesome.
