Last night’s sleep was “interesting”. After returning home from Tilted Kilt, my boss’ choice for his birthday drinks and dinner, I passed out in bed nearly immediately — around 10:00pm. I woke up and was wide awake around 3:30am. I finally got back to sleep after an hour or so, only to somehow to manage to shut off both alarms and wake up again on my own at 6:30am. Toss into this mix add a nightmare about being in a car that nearly drove off a steep cliff due to a bridge being out, and then watching other cars actually do that.
What’s that Mr. Freud?
B-b-b-baby It’s Cold Outside
Surprisingly I’m not bummed with the spell of cold weather we’ve been having. This weather has been giving me an opportunity to wear the sweaters that I don’t get to wear very often. Sure, this weather is going to jack up my heating bill, especially living in a house with leaky windows and a piece of plywood masquerading a window.
I will say that last night was the first time in my life that I wish the car I owned had heated seats.
Last year I had two cockroaches sitting on my bathroom sink when I turned on a light in the bedroom. On each occasion I “dispatched” them elsewhere.
Yesterday morning I was thinking how nice it’s been not having such pests recently.
Wouldn’t you know that when I arrived home last night and flipped on the bedroom light I could see a cockroach sitting in the same exact spot! The light or my presence didn’t seem to bother it, but I’m sure the plastic-wrapped magazine that was in my hand because it had arrived in the mail yesterday did. SPLAT! and it was no more.
I Have Clearance, Clarence
My late start eliminated using the interstates which ere blood-red on Google Maps by the time I exited the house. Instead I chose a series of surface streets which were pretty uncluttered, until I reached Sidney-Marcus. As I started at Target while I waited in traffic the brilliant idea of going shopping struck me, and I did, and there was much rejoicing.
By 9:15am I had already seen two strikingly beautiful women shopping at Target and had filled up my hand basket with all of the things I needed, and a few I didn’t, like clearance solid-color t-shirts and a new pair of long johns which were also clearance-priced. I would have purchased a new pair of black “leather” gloves if Target had any gloves left on the pegs.
All in all I spent $75 and my plan to wait out traffic by shopping worked brilliantly.
Tonight’s Actors My Have The Best Show Of Their Life Just By Acting As If They Are Warm
Tonight I will be going to midtown, not to go to the Goethe Centrum, but instead to go see the Hertz Stage at the Alliance Theatre‘s performance of “The C.A. Lyons Project”. I am blissfully unaware about the plot of this play and have no intentions of investigating it before I get there.
Okay, time to code.
