Current crap


I am currently at the Albany Library to check my email (and, as it ends out, buy a book and cd from the library sale) so technically I am now "wasting time." I should be headed to Costco to purchase Tums which, apparently, bind lead so eating them is a good job when sanding lead paint off the walls. Here's the current load you're missing out on:

I'm sick of flirting with age. If thirty hasn't shown up by tomorrow I'm just knocking the door down.

My hands won't stop shaking this morning.

My doctor told me yesterday that he's ruled out all major diseases so my cough is lame.

I really like where we live. You should come see us.

I'm finally reading Mary Roach's Stiff and it is every bit as wonderful as I had expected. I also just finished reading The Red Hourglass and The Hound of the Baskervilles (it's been a Holmes-heavy summer) and have rediscovered my copy of Edgar Mint that Brozy gave me so I can start back on that as well. I wish I had a books-read-this-year list, because I think I would be winning.

We live within walking distance of three movie theaters; two comic stores; two Korean restaurants; some incredible grocery stores; numerous restaurants specializing in Thai, Nepalese, Tibetan, Californian, and sundry other unique cuisines; multiple churches and schools; far-reaching public transit; several art galleries and used toy shops; and more! more! more!

We saw Scoop yesterday and enjoyed it very much. (Although I did not expect to see Charon there.) But my favorite thing was how no one stood and left when the credits started! I thought I was in movie heaven!

We expect to have internet sometime next week. So stay posted. Maybe it'll be in time to celebrate my blogday. Who can say.


  1. I'm glad you're settling in. Hopefully, the shakes will go away soon. Mine went away when the heat died down, so perhaps yours will go away when...wait, you live in California, where they never have troubles, at least very few...well, perhaps when it gets even more nice.

  2. It's good to know you have relocated and it's not all up in the air anymore. Hopefully you can find everything you would want in your new town. I don't cover Albany, so you'll have to let me know when your up my way...

  3. Are you eating enough? That's when I get the shakes. Doing "demolition" might also contribute...

    Hope you guys get internet soon!

  4. Hooray for being within walking distance of so many wondiferous things! I guess I live within walking distance of some things, but most of the good stuff is at least biking, if not driving distance away. Glad the move went well, and that the internet, and further thmusings, will be returning soon.

  5. I've established the habit of no longer getting up right when the credits begin. I think I've trained my mom that way, too. :) One can only hope!

  6. My "books-read-this-year list" is so outdated that I've basically given up trying to get it back to par.

    That and, deep down inside, I'm sure I know you're pummeling my list into the ground so I just can't find the energy any more.

    Or something.

  7. I am thinking of you today (8/5). And that's about all I've got.

    Btw, Coast Guard Day doesn't even show up on my calendar. What's up with that? No more accepting free calendars from the nice people at conventions, I can assure you.

  8. Hey, so it turns out I'm coming to Cali in 2 weekends, now, I'm not sure where in Cali you live, but if you live anywhere near Monrovia or Arcadia, do you wanna go to lunch?
