For those who came in late...

My life lately's been basic. Simple. At least there's been some social time. Last Sunday I hung out with one friend who'd just gotten back from London and a mutual friend, getting souvenirs while hanging out in a dive bar. Wednesday's social thing was at another friend's father's house. Parse that: this friend goes to her dad's house on Wednesdays to watch Survivor, and I asked (nicely!) if I could join them for this season's premiere, and they said yes. Which was nice, since they're nice people to visit with and I'd otherwise have to wait a week and a day to watch the episode through an app. Next episode I'll need to wait, but I can.

Work is work. Technical issues hobbled us a bit, sometimes a lot, last week; that contributed to work being a little slow. That and I was slower than I'd like. Still getting used to the amenities in the new building, including the elevators announcing the floors and when the elevators are moving. I still think I hear a hint of disapproval when the voice says "Going down..."

I've had a simple weekend. The farthest I've been from the house was the Fred Meyer 12 blocks away. Time to adapt to fall weather: hoodie (the one I have, from Big-Ass Sandwiches) and sweatshirts are out! I've made sure to wear my Oregon Ducks sweatshirt this weekend, too, after they lost badly yesterday -- if they were TRYING to lose, they in fact lost quite well, but that's not what I mean -- because I'm not going to be a fair-weather Duck fan. They'll be better. They'll be better.

(To amuse/ease the pain of a fellow Duck fan last night, I posted a description of me rocking back and forth, saying "It's still not the Toilet Bowl...it's still not the Toilet Bowl...")

There! Caught up.

    I am glad you exist and that you're choosing to blog!

    Maybe not feeling poetic is a poetic state all its own?

    Try to capture that feeling - I think that will be reflective of many folks'…

    I think I should wait until I have something better to brag about.

    I think it's okay to talk about your life, if you have something you want to share, even if you are doing well.

    I've been serving myself to watch this one day.
