I also ordered a box of chocolates today, Chococo's chocolate week collection. The shop is in Dorset, so Saturday's chocolate tour won't be stopping by.
To counterbalance my acquisitiveness today, I stayed home and was generally productive: job application, class prep, and mostly finishing off my slightly ambitious rearrangement of the flat in an effort to create more logical, non-pile spaces for books.
Backlog: lots of restaurant write-ups half-finished, more thoughts on textbook prices. Thank you for all the anecdotal information on the state of textbooks across time, countries, and disciplines!
