note: this is one of a number of entries that were lost in a server crash, followed by a desktop crash, back in late 2004. on march 1, 2009, i happened on a cache file on the crashed desktop hard drive, so i am reloading all of the entries with their original date and time values intact for posterity.
i skipped work yesterday. i wasn’t really in a functional state. i decided to go to work today — it was a choice between worrying about breaking down at work and having nowhere to go to be alone, or sitting in my house by myself surrounded by the trappings of my shattered life. i chose work.
