I worked until 6:30pm before scooting out to do laundry in preparation of my departure tomorrow.
Oh, blogging will be a bit scant from tomorrow until next Wednesday. I will be tooling around Portland Wednesday and Thursday, and then playing hashing games from Friday through Monday. Monday’s return flight will be on the redeye so I doubt that I will be in a blogging condition on Tuesday morning.
It all seems so complicated at the moment.
You Can’t By Just One, Or Two Pair For That Matter
I went into Target yesterday afternoon to buy a pair of shorts to wear last night while doing laundry because I forgot to pack a pair. It’s a long story about my lifestyle, just go with this.
In addition to the shorts I also wanted to pick up a pair or two of black, ankle-length athletic socks.
You know what, you can’t buy just one or two pair of socks any longer, you have to buy a pack of at least four. Of course for the socks I wanted I could find packages containing no fewer than six pairs of socks, and the package I walked away with also contained two “bonus” pairs of socks.
I went in looking for two pair and walked out with eight pair. ‘merica!
“That’s A Nice Bike, It Looks Expensive”
I made an error in judgement last night by taking my bike out of the trunk and locking it to the bike rack before I started laundry last night. After putting clothes into the washer I sat outside and started reading “The Martian” on my Kindle. At one point a guy walked by me and asked “Is that your bike?” to which I said “Yes.” and he retorted “That’s a nice bike, it looks expensive.” to which I tried to cooly reply “Thanks, not really.” Having someone eye my bicycle and comment on how expensive it looks is not exactly the sentiment I was hoping to generate.
In the future I think that I will keep my bike in the trunk if I happen to ride on a laundry night.
Ich muss heute Abend meinen Koffer packen
(I must pack my suitcase tonight.)
But before I can pack tonight after German class I need to figure out what the heck I need to pack for this trip.
Since this will be a relatively short trip I have decided to stay in Portland for the entire trip, as opposed to travelling to other cities.
