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.
