A listy day, looks busy when you write it that way, feeling powerless AGAIN, and a productive day…

~Sunday~  Since I didn’t get to bed until 4:00 in the morning, I had hoped to get eight hours sleep in. However, I woke up at a little after 10:00 and after two attempts to fall back asleep didn’t work, I accepted the inevitable and got up. One of my LJ friends, e-musings, often posts … Read more

Not bored at a board meeting, looking at men’s shorts, a collage of friends, and a late night out…

~Saturday~  Not surprisingly I was up early due to falling asleep just after 10:00 last night. It was nice not to be rushed before heading out to Durham for our July Manbites Dog Theater Board of Directors meeting. I stopped at the grocery store by my house, where I picked up a dozen Krispy Kreme … Read more

Great customer service, too hot for tacos, tomato-clam-Parmesan pasta, & a sign from god to go out..

~Thursday~ I worked from 9:00 until about 10:15 at the Mission Valley Bruegger’s, where in spite of not getting the memo, it turned out to be “Gay Day.” There certainly were more of us there than the purported 10% average in the general population. I continue to be impressed with the management and staff of … Read more

Zipcar ad ethos, a trip review affirmation, the FAF plan loses its weight, a focused group & dancing

~Wednesday~  I caught the Wolfline #9 Greek Village bus at the Gorman and Kaplan stop at 8:35, after waiting a mere 3 minutes—thanks to the wonders of GPS. I just mentioned the availability of “Zipcars” on campus now on the ride back from lunch with Libby on Tuesday, as we were discussing the pros and … Read more

A not hot ear cigarette, a memorable bug, Laziz Biryani Corner, and a weepy Glee episode…

~Tuesday~  I drove to the Wolfline #9 Greek Village stop at Avent Ferry and Gorman, where I had a very short wait for the bus. At the next stop, the one with the infamous sign that’s now correct, a man was handing a pamphlet to an Asian girl who was waiting for the bus.  I … Read more

A remarkably uneventful bus, not-so-smart Smart Mix, customer non-service, & locker room TV rhetoric

~Monday~ I parked between the city bus stop on Kaplan and the Wolfline bus on Gorman in order to be able to catch either home in the afternoon. The ride in was remarkably uneventful, which is different than just plain unremarkable or just plain uneventful. I expected my boss back in this morning, as she … Read more

3 secrets pique my interest, tending to Joe’s plants and fish, a late workout, and a night in…

~Sunday~ I woke up at 10:13 this morning, and settled in for my Sunday morning routine. After frying two eggs over easy, and toasting a sandwich round to have with it, I settled in at my laptop with a cup of coffee, but instead of listening to country gospel music, I listened to my two … Read more

A tomato omelet, a question for Greg, Amy passes, happy mail, savory bruschetta, & inverted biceps

~Saturday~ I woke up at three after eleven and the first thing I thought was, “Mrs. Chason’s funeral is starting right about now.” My thoughts are with you, my friend. My next thought was, “I have to run over and water Joe’s indoor plants some time today.” For breakfast, I made a cheese, onion, and … Read more

Saved by a colleague, more unsolicited feedback, another fraud check, & a holy trinity bar night…

~Friday~  I drove to work this morning, where with no all-day free parking available, I took a two-hour spot and set my alarm for 10:35 to move my car. My work afternoon was much more productive than my morning, but hey, that’s all in a day’s work. A colleague and friend, David Ladrie, dropped by … Read more
