This’d be a fine town to settle if I could earn a living

I used to live around the corner from here. Read that Amazon bought two buildings across the street on SW Broadway & is slated to be the largest tech employer here in Podunk. That means higher rents downtown and more tech bros! Not that I could ever earn a living wage here, with or without competing against youngsters with tech salaries. At a certain point, … Continue reading This’d be a fine town to settle if I could earn a living

Velvet Buzzsaw & today’s workout

Well… I’ve been a few days without using the Wahoo. I’ve gotta say I am still way less motivated. Like, every time I do exercise it’s an epic struggle just to do anything whatsoever. But you know, I had a healthy slice of lasagna for lunch, along with some buttered spinach I steamed. I kind of want to make cookies… We didn’t get that much snow, … Continue reading Velvet Buzzsaw & today’s workout

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

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

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”

Pet Sematary – movie review / thoughts on making sculpture

This was much better than I’d expected, in that it was an Amazon Prime move I watched to the end, albeit multi tasking a little. Killed two hours of Saturday right there, with the obligatory pauses. The dialogue was pretty laughable, and some of the acting really bad, especially the Dad. All they had to do was keep their cat inside, when living right next … Continue reading Pet Sematary – movie review / thoughts on making sculpture
