"Right Reason" essays by William F. Buckley Jr.

After Salvation Army we went to a Burger King for lunch and after lunch we went to Staples Office Supply store so I could get folders, paper, and pens. It is back to school time sales so I got a year's worth of folders cheap. Since I am always writing I constantly need paper and pens. I am a diary writer.

After Staples we drove to Tim's place and unloaded his books and took them up to his apartment. After helping Tim with his load of books I came home to sweat and catalog the books I got today into my LibraryThing site. Carol left to visit a friend and existence keeps decaying. I will close to feel hot and wasted. No way out.
