Another Boring Evening

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.

    “The bike is expensive, and so is the .45 in my hand for the first MF who I see eyeballing it.”

    We had left the tractor at Bear Creek Saturday, not wanting to drive it home in a pouring rain, so last night we went to pick it up- my running (I didn’t know the way) and Debbie riding Phinney. Phinney didn’t really understand what was going on, but wanted to be next to me as I ran. That really doesn’t work on trails where I have to pick my way sometimes, so he followed. Driving the tractor back made me realize just how rough a ride can be without suspension! We were on some poor trails and it was occasionally painful! I now feel better that the tractor is home.

    Another brontosaurus sized T-bone last night for dinner. TASTE-TEE! I might be a carnivor yet.

    Happy September!


  2. Just checked in for tomorrow’s flight — I guess I’m going. 🙂

    That’s a good plan, as I think you need some time away from the nuthouse that is work these days. Debbie has an aunt that we need to go visit. I hear Oregon is beautiful and have always wanted to go, so I’m a bit jealous.
