NOW I've been useful!

More awake now, which is good, since I've driven a whole mess of miles and done some errands and treated myself, all of which is best done when NOT SLEEPY. Maybe I won't need a nap.

I let myself take a longer route home than normal so I could get doughnuts (yes, plural) at the Clackamas Krispy Kreme. Hot chocolate, too, which hit the spot quite well. I then cut over to Milwaukie and finally visited Things From Another World, which hadn't opened yet when I went past it yesterday. I bought a longbox for the first time since the one box I bought in the 1980s. My comics collecting had lain fallow for many years, slowly building to the point recently where I finally realized yep. Need these more organized. My entire Caitlin-written run of The Dreaming needs to get off my bookshelf and into the box!

Groceries were my next stop. Home was my latest stop. It's cool enough in my apartment, which is good as it's another 80-plus degree day out there.

As I write this, Mom and Aunt Nancy are en route to Portland's Waterfront Park for the Obama rally. Nancy got dressed this morning in her Guam for Obama T-shirt. Dad's home getting yardwork done, "turning big stumps into little stumps" (his words; he's cleaning out trees that a service had cut down). And I need more fluid. I always need more fluid. I'm good at drinking fluid...
