All productive 'n' stuff

Stuff What's Been Done:

* Shopping, shopping, shopping: I went on kind of a Great Circle Route in Portland, hitting two supermarkets and one comic book store; and

* Catch-up office work: I spent a couple of hours at my office on Pill Hill. That was between Shopping Stop #1 (the 39th & Powell Safeway, to use a particular coupon) and Shopping Stop #2 (Fred Meyer at Burlingame, south of Pill Hill). I burned through many, many e-mails that needed work and responses; and then

* Lunner! Could that be what you call a meal between lunch and dinner? I didn't leave work until after 3 o'clock; since I drove, I had more flexibility in where I could go shopping, and I decided it made the most sense to go to the Burlingame Freddy's. A couple of blocks away from it is a Baja Fresh restaurant, which I walked over to from the Freddy's parking lot. I had a nicely satisfying fish taco and a tortilla soup with chicken. I actually said "that hit the spot" to the counter person who'd taken my order. I then walked back, remembering that this is one of the neighborhoods where Chuck Palahniuk lived before he got famous. I also walked so I'd get a leeettle more exercise, which is always needed.

By the way, I went to the Milwaukie Things From Another World on the spur of the moment, because I was heading home via the Sellwood Bridge and realized it wouldn't be much of a detour. At that comic book store I got Harlan Ellison's Dream Corridor Vol. 2, the final edition of the comic (about 10 years late, but that can be Harlan for you) and -- finally! -- the last two issues I needed so that I could have Caitlin R. Kiernan's complete run on The Dreaming.

  • Trying to end blog constipation! Also, feelings, ugh.

    Yeah. That was a week of me not blogging. Whatever blogging I might have done during that time would probably have been really repetitive. I haven't…

  • I can do stuff while feeling low

    After posting the earlier entry, I did a walk. And an errand. A combination walk-errand. I needed to return a library book, Beverly Cleary's…

  • Some days are low days.

    I've been sad today. It has been easy to think of sad things, and I've been thinking of them while not doing much else. Trying to think of happy…
