Plerk and Gertrude

Now I'm reading another book on writing called the Elements of Alternative Style with some encouraging essays on getting loose and enthusiastic in academic writing. I just read an essay about combining work and play in writing and calling the process "plerk." I also checked out Gertrude Stein's "How to Write." I wonder if I should go get the ribbon now? I want to get the ribbon now. Will the fabric store be open? If not will Michael's be open? If not where can I buy ribbon? I called the store and they are open for hours longer. I am running out of money but I'm going to buy the ribbon so that I can jump out of bed tomorrow and string up my data.
