Writing exercise, super blood moon, Gigantic Brewing

Man, I feel creeky and sore this morning, about 100 years old. I had to start taking some dioxycycline again though, for the old dental problem. I felt like writing… I’ve been doing the Abraham Hicks, “Create the Climate” exercise, in the form of tweets, which I screenshot. Was it the 4%? I’ll admit today’s was harder. As of last week, I was supposed to … Continue reading Writing exercise, super blood moon, Gigantic Brewing

Yet another job option emailed me back for an interview I can’t make

Not reading my cover letter that clearly states I’m in Portland, at the moment. As I’ve known for years, my location is the problem. The most likely place I’ll find the regular, employment is back in sock design, and that is almost entirely in or around New York. Also no companies pay relocation unless you’re a corporate manager in the 130-150K range. I tell them … Continue reading Yet another job option emailed me back for an interview I can’t make

Funny that the people interested in saving me are those I haven’t seen in 30+ years

One of them is a liberal intellectual, more like myself. The other’s a cocaine dealer. The former wanted to marry me in first grade, and is now a VP at a Massachusetts based startup.  It’s a bit hypothetical at the moment, but he’s got enough clout to possibly secure a “support based” gig for me at his company. I’d be making less than half what … Continue reading Funny that the people interested in saving me are those I haven’t seen in 30+ years

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

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

Feeling a bit better now

I just needed to 1) self isolate and 2) vent. It’ll be good to see my friend too, tomorrow, even if I’d been hoping to eat turkey. She’s unlike most of the locals in that she both plans and communicates clearly. She is also doing an all vegan holiday. My friend Maria, in Connecticut, already has her table set, and beautifully, a day ahead of … Continue reading Feeling a bit better now

Friday morning musings

On aging and injuries I was planning to do the last WO in Julia’s contest series yesterday, but when I got out of bed (a Casper mattress still on the floor, because Podunk), both knees were sore. And I’d done a nice, easy one the day before! Not only that, but my left elbow was especially pissy, even aching when not exercising, and hitting the problem … Continue reading Friday morning musings

Summer Shred #8 & a full Astanga

First the Monday Zgym WO. I’d only previewed one before & didn’t want to spend too much time exercising. But today? I can do whatever. The new beloved Still getting to know my iMac & feeling inspired. I woke up this morning and, despite the quantities of good, red wine consumed during Charlie’s birthday dinner, immediately started design concepting. Working on uploading files carefully – … Continue reading Summer Shred #8 & a full Astanga

2 sets HIIT & a stretching session

Woke up with a stiff neck! Got a shitload of stuff done though. Daily cat care & got ’em both outside for a long stretch (since there’s no one here to get them out during the weekdays for the next 3½ weeks. Did a load of laundry. I’ll put that away tomorrow probably. Fed fish. Cleared recycling in bathroom & kitchen & took bag to … Continue reading 2 sets HIIT & a stretching session
