Sloth of New Year’s

It’s a rest day? Welp, I think I need a day off exercise. New Year’s Eve was low key. We cooked and there was no bickering and that was fantastic. Actually we got steaks to grill, which is definitely not  a weekly event so that was a treat. Watched some Grimm on Prime. Watched some Lucifer on Netflix. Went to sleep before midnight. And apparently … Continue reading Sloth of New Year’s

The force is not with me today – partial yoga & other stuff

Rogue Was a little dizzy this morning. We went to Rogue in the Pearl last night & both had the halibut fish & chips. (Also beer, and then some whiskey.) Very nice food only they seem to have ruined their vibe with the recent renovation. We got there a bit past 6pm on a Friday night, and the main room was mostly empty. When we … Continue reading The force is not with me today – partial yoga & other stuff

Coaxing oneself along with planned rewards & Meditation

Here’s a night time post. That’s three today! I need a break from The Road though. First day in and I’m already at 53%. This book was published in 2006. I was surprised! Thought it was older than that. The movie was only three years later, which is pretty rapid turnaround. I looked it up on Amazon but it’s not available for streaming, not that … Continue reading Coaxing oneself along with planned rewards & Meditation

Reading at Starbucks

The kitschy building across the street is Casa Colima, a sort of serviceable, whitewashed Mexican restaurant. They do make really good margaritas, served in those big goblets, too heavy to pick up single handedly. I can’t afford to be a cocktail person anymore though, and I rarely suggest it, as I’m enough of a freeloader already. Not by choice! But then that doesn’t matter. Finished … Continue reading Reading at Starbucks

Christmas, dreams, what to do today

Merry Christmas! I replaced the Amazon can you feel it commercial music with the theme from Winter Soldier pic.twitter.com/rXMcDGoWcJ — Omar Najam (@OmarNajam) November 24, 2018 I had some wacky dreams last night The most memorable involved being in the same room with a gargantuan Drumpf and a swarthy, bearded, sort of West Village type sycophant, assisting the orange one in some way that was not … Continue reading Christmas, dreams, what to do today

I’ve become a master of getting back to sleep in the morning

Multiple times! This morning it was four. When I wake from a dream in the early morning, before daybreak, Theodora will usually sense it & come over meowing for pets and attention. If it’s later in the morning, she’ll just come wailing in the room in outrage and wake me up. Henry’s more subtle. He’ll circle the bed clockwise, usually stepping on and pulling my … Continue reading I’ve become a master of getting back to sleep in the morning

Blog name change & plans for Saturday

I changed the name of the blog, b/c now we’re not at all politically correct, just doing the normal “conceal your true self” thing in the name of job hunting. After four years in Podunk I can confidently say it will NOT help. I totally agree w/ the tip about the University of Oregon, especially if you can find an interviewer’s profile and LinkedIn. This is … Continue reading Blog name change & plans for Saturday

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…

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
