  • bring snacks for the plane?
  • read a handful of trashy magazines?

  • hear some poetic heroes read?
  • hear Art Spiegelman's evening lecture?
  • recommit to loving visual art?

  • get some subscriptions?
  • dream about dinner reservations?
  • eat dinners at some swanky places?
  • forget to bring my bought-for-this-purpose fancy power bars?

  • have an awesome time?
[answer key: yes, yes, yes, yes, no, yes, yes, yes, yes, yes, yes, yes, yes, yes, yes, yes]

  3. You're amazing, doing all you did. I'm so happy I got to do some of that list with you.
