This recommendation from Amazon left me confused. How do those things I’ve purchased have anything to do with condoms? Do David Foster Wallace readers get laid more often than non-DFW readers? Or, more likely, are they more likely to buy condoms online? Or is there a semantic connection—are my purchases of “The Big One” and “A Supposedly Fun Thing…” somehow sexually suggestive to Amazon’s poor, overtaxed recommendations engine?

I have nothing really profound to say right now, which is okay, I guess. I wonder if that has anything to do with my recent decision to cut out caffeinated, sugary soda.

In completely unrelated news, I played a great deal of baseball on Saturday with co-workers and other friends, which was deeply fun. I was only sore for about 36 to 48 hours afterwards, which isn’t so bad, considering we played for roughly 5-6 hours (with a picnic break in between). I probably should have worn sunscreen. My family will be so impressed by my tan at Thanksgiving.

I’ve taken quite a few photos I’d like to post here but just haven’t taken the time to do so.
