Forced to order coffee maker from Internet. Couldn't find one in store that used cone filter, urgh, wtf?

Did get that tasty pizza.
My ambition for today: get a new coffee maker. A while back, the carafe of mine broke, haven't been able to find a replacement & have been using this Sunbeam which, frankly, isn't very good at making coffee. Would also like to get some high quality pizza.

Henry's move in went pretty smoothly, after, took a pass on D&D musical comedy at MassMoca in favor of beer drinking session at H & O, pleasure universe. I got sleepy early & went home, fell asleep on the couch again.

Watching crappy British scifi with pups.

Yesterday woke clogged & dizzy, spent the day at home, recuperating.

Woke today, feeling fine, went to work, lunch with Cooper, then home for an appointment with the fine professionals from Comcast who arrived promptly, repaired our signal leakage & went away again. They did toss a sheet over our wireless router, causing it to overheat, can't have everything.

Snowing heavily in Nashville.

Here, cold as a witch's tit & at least twice as breezy. Henry's deferred moving until morning.

Just watched Yojimbo again for the first time in ever so long. Enchanting, & of course the plot is a perennial favorite.

Henry's here, going to get the key to his apartment in the AM.

Dreamt that work would be pleasantly surprising & it was, though not as foreseen. Finally penetrated that voice mail box I had my eye on, nothing like an afternoon inside a strange system.

After two days home, finally made it to bed. Yesterday, fell asleep on the couch again, watching Night of the Generals, odd picture, should watch it again in its entirety.

Oh & the chili coconut fried shrimp at the H & O, oh wow, oh wow, oh wow.

Oh, oh, oh.

There are those, of course, who think beauty all to which art can or should aspire.

Heavy soaking rain.

What's for supper?
Made it back fairly early last night to icy wet Massachusetts. Fell asleep on the couch wrapped in a blanket watching Blade Runner. Dreamt extensively of getting a drink and still feeling thirsty. Woke up thirsty, went & got a drink.

Busy week of cookery and movie watching and visits with friends and family, didn't really want to return from it.

Cold fingers, maybe the coffee's ready.

Went & got delayed T. from the airport, went & got more quality beer, stopped by seedy taqueria for some yummy tacos.

Crazy sleepy, need more coffee so I can make buns.
Having a pleasant, sleepy vacation with only slightly excessive work impingement. Car is maybe fixed.

T. missed her connecting flight in Memphis so will be here in the AM.

Very high quality sushi tonight, more steamed buns tomorrow.

In a motel in Wytheville. Just went downstairs and made myself a waffle.

L. sleeps on, dogs are going bananas.

Just as we set out from home, noticed car was overheating, stopped by mechanic who identified slow radiator leak, gave tips on driving with slow radiator leak, seems to be working OK.

Tonight, Grand Ole Opry at the Ryman, weird, huh?

Wednesday, January 13, 2010

Despite falling asleep remarkably early last night, still feeling groggy & bleary & c.

Hardly seems possible, but coffee doesn't seem to help.

Fell asleep on the couch. Woken by cell alarm from a dream in which picking up a small key had turned me into a marauding giant, shame. Smash, smash.

Had biscuits & eggs for dinner last night, something I feel I should do more often.

Head full of ideas, minimal energy. Did take advantage of early waking to potter peacefully around the house, should do that more often.

Should pick up snacks for trip, should determine cause of slow coolant leak in car.

Shoulda, woulda, coulda.

I notice that if I blog less, L. blogs more. Funny.

Made bbq pork steamed buns yesterday & shared them around. Head full of weird fusion cuisine.

Henry came up this AM, we went & looked at one of the new lofts downtown. Nice place, they're taking it, whoo hoo!

Went & got free beer tasting from the Pint after, easy living.

Yesterday after work, went for local soda & quality BBQ. Really, happy days.

Wednesday, January 06, 2010

Woke up with a sore back, went downstairs to tend to dogs' needs, bending down to hook them to lines, got a spasmy back.

Went away after a while, still stiff & uncomfortable.

Taco night, taco night.

Feeling extremely blah. Vacation can't come soon enough.

Despite plenty of sleep, feeling very sleepy.


Sunday, January 03, 2010

Yesterday, artspace meeting, croissant party, work, Dick Van Dyke inspired dinner. Went to bed quite early.

At some point in the night, Pickles came & joined me, Peretz never did. Turned out, come morning, that he'd taken advantage of the xmas tree's departure to snuggle up with the living room radiator. Clever pup.

Feeling pretty wrecked.

Got in very late from New Year's reveling, got up pretty early & went & did some work. Came home, walked dogs, made raspberry pancakes. Went to Shelburne Falls to help some friends move heavy things into their new apartment. Came home again, made masa patties to top with yesterday's chili & eggs. Walked the dogs again, then spent some time falling asleep in front of the TV.

Going to go to sleep for real now.

Welcome to the Tweens.
