A couple of days ago I told DC about how I had had the perfect day and that I was very happy. Oh how wrong I was. This day today is when I'm happy. Truly happy. So happy I can't even fucking sleep, that my hands shiver as I type. Today I went to the annual book fair in my city.
28 books in a day. I sweated and I toiled and I made my way across town to buy them, and carry them back. It nearly defeated me, the effort. But fuck that, my massive ego triumphed.
