Downloading books, lying around

Watched the clip below. One person said she thinks the majority of those on the streets want to be there. Granted I haven’t been in that situation, although I’m unmarried and without any assets. I’m living with someone who’s eleven years my senior and, as he’s said on more than one occasion – already past his life span. I highly doubt she’s right, though I … Continue reading Downloading books, lying around

This may be only a little bit of a workout blog for awhile…

Rested my elbow yesterday, but it’s just as sore, having progressed to where it hurts or aches when I’m not even “hitting it”. Last night I woke up out of a dream, and that arm was flung overhead. I moved it and it really complained, to the point that I was startled one level more awake. It hurts any time I extend it fully in a stretch… … Continue reading This may be only a little bit of a workout blog for awhile…

Lazy rest days – at least Podunk has good beer

One of the very few things Podunk has over the east coast is beer Course I didn’t give a fuck about that when I was installed in my rent stabilised, Manhattan hovel. I could afford decent wine and cocktails! Lounging around. What did I do today? I finally took the clothes out of my big suitcase, from when I was pretending I was going to … Continue reading Lazy rest days – at least Podunk has good beer

This week started with a casino & will end in church, maybe

I’m thinking of going, back to Trinity cathedral, for the first day of Advent next Sunday. I didn’t even know what it was when I first dropped in. I loved checking out old churches in Italy. The best we’ve got in the US doesn’t come close, especially on the newer west coast, but it’d gotten my attention, when I used to walk around downtown, and … Continue reading This week started with a casino & will end in church, maybe

Core routine, Jamie Bryan

And I wanted to do nothing after all that sloth yesterday, but that’d be bad, so I poked around, having not earmarked anything in advance for today. Found this core WO from Jamie Bryan I’d looked at recently. Perfect! I could’ve used some more abs, maybe one of Michele’s great sets. Or stretching. But nah… I just did the one routine, no warm-up or cool-down. … Continue reading Core routine, Jamie Bryan

Ilani, my first ever casino experience #portlandia

I tried it once! Sort of. It’s not really going to a casino if you don’t gamble and don’t spend any money whatsoever. I came out of there with a bunch of goodies though, thanks to H and her points. Breakfast. A new water / coffee bottle. Cake, coffee, some safety gadget for your car… I forget what it does. I think it’s for busting … Continue reading Ilani, my first ever casino experience #portlandia

My cats are the first people I see every day

Up at 6am Back when I got the temporary gig at The Office, Portlandia, I bought a compact coffeemaker with a timer, and installed it in the corner of the sink in my bathroom, next to the inexplicably only outlet. I’d set it up in the evening, before every weekday morning, to start brewing at 5:55. Today I’m not going to sit in an office … Continue reading My cats are the first people I see every day

express Astanga & another movie review, “Devil”

I actually got in a chop-chop, really uncomfortable & slightly nauseous (during the LBH – with all those cookies in my stomach) yoga practice yesterday. Just before going out, for a little bit. Gigantic Brewing. So Portland! The SE around there is just past railroad storage wastelands. Then there’s this little brewery, with delivery from the food cart next door, 808 Grinds. Used to be … Continue reading express Astanga & another movie review, “Devil”
