Went to pub night at H&O earlier, free snacks, crowded. Met the guy who played the wolf in the Firebird in the rain, seemed nice.

Thirsty, damp, still raining.
Quite a remarkable downpour happening. About to finish batch of chemistry tutorials I've been working on, then on to the next.

Listening to 'Yellow Pills', earlier, on my pal Molly's radio program, 'Mr. Blue Sky'.


Multiday music fest starts today at our favorite local record store, playing the Saturday installment in Goshen.

Oh, wow, weekend. Saturday, perfectly lovely day at the beach. Sunday, band practice, played a show, slept like the dead. Zippy, boxy car, hurray.

Monday, oy, rainy, feeling a bit off, then more off, then less. Chicken noodle & grilled cheese to the rescue. Right as rain tomorrow, more rain tomorrow.

Shine on harvest moon, up in the sky.

Safely into fall. Bought a car Monday, supposedly going to get my hands on it today.

Working from home is interesting, featuring new and improved distortions of my sense of time.

Turns out, whale watch was available despite choppy seas, totally fucking amazing, big crowds of humpbacks, apparently friskier than usual due to the waves, lots of jumping & frolicking, still feel a bit giddy.

After that, South African snack, bought some sale brown beach towels with pink polkadots.

These are a few of my favorite flavors: strawberry, chocolate, vanilla. That last one's a killer.

Came home to find Pickles had caused significant damage to a door and frame, sigh, poor nervous pup, poor us.

Watching 10,000 BC, girls just headed across the street for some nice Thai while I stay and keep the dogs company. They're bringing back Crazy Noodles for me, perennial favorite.
Just noticed that Ask is folding up Bloglines on October 1, end of an era. They're dropping it in favor of 'building out [their] Q&A offering,' sad, whither Lycos? Go get it.

Rainy last full day of vacation, supposedly 7-10 foot swells courtesy of Igor, will probably put the kibosh on whale watching plans for the second year running.

Karen's here, we're all drinking coffee, have some, won't you?

Awaiting Karen's arrival, oven ate the nice dinner I made, screwy locking mechanism, ugh.

Enjoying vacation very much despite nightly sinus headache.

Earlier, explored First Encounter Beach at low tide, quite something.

Poor butternut squash and onions.

Sushi the tortoise, lost and found again, where was I?

Off my game, out of the office, on vacation.
Quality vacation, even getting some work done amidst tasty seafood, seal watching, ocean bobbing, dog walking, etc. Even lining up more work, almost like I'm well adjusted.

Also have line on potential replacement car, yip,yip.

Have brats to grill later.

Honestly, what don't I have?

Hopefully, whale watch tomorrow, love a whale watch.

Cozy on the couch with Peretz, sunshower outside, place we're staying has a giant tub with which I may become reacquainted shortly.

Oh, & L's camera broke, lose one most every vacation.

Just did my last routine review of the paper's logs.

It seems like I've been writing this thing forever, but not as long as I've been doing that. Good riddance.

Went out & got a bag of snacks for the cape. No 19th Hole, no pecan pie.

OK, so, on the loose, pretty much. Not quite awake yet, but it feels pretty nice, most anxiety is residual rather than prospective, nothing a few days at the beach shouldn't fix.

Bit cloudy, Pickles is snoring.

Was thinking of doing some work today, but think I may say 'Fuck it' and go out shopping or something.

Taco night.

Full up on tacos, sleepy.

Last real day tomorrow, many imaginary ones to follow.

Monday, September 06, 2010

Having a hard time remembering which day it is, weird stretched weekend seemed to start yesterday, sick Friday, Saturday worked all day at meditation center, spent the evening awaiting calls from soon to be former workplace, maybe Labor Day picnic I'll be attending shortly will ram the fact of Monday home.

Honestly, though, expect time to stay all funny at least until the 20th or so. Though, so, though, so.

Om Gum Ganapatayei Namaha, that gum you like is going to come back in style.

Spent some time yesterday researching wholesale sources of Lotte gum, still no line on the mangosteen flavor.

Been singing out a lot, going out a lot, more later.

Ugh, sick. Up on and off through the night with a fever. Blech.

Soon, I'll be free. Picking up of freelance work proceeds apace.
