Woke up this morning at around 9:00 – unsurprising since I was still awake at 2:00 am – and headed to a friend’s house to visit with her for a while, and to play with her new foster kittens. I spent a couple hours at her place, then headed back home. The kittens are adorable… Read More #577 – Lazy Day and Long Streaks
First off, I’m sorry I haven’t written anything of substance for the last couple of days. Things have been really busy on this vacation and I’ve gotten in with just enough energy in the tank to say “I’ll get you tomorrow” twice and then go immediately to bed.So today’s blog post is going to cover… Read More The Last Three Days
Tonight there was a party for my wife. It was great fun. It is also very late and I’m writing this from the passenger seat on the way back to where we’re staying. So for now this is going to have to suffice for a blog post. More on the party tomorrow.
This afternoon my wife and I drove down to the west side of San Antonio to attend a dear friend and mentor’s 70th birthday party. The trip down was full of stop-and-go traffic, and I passed the time by reading a chapter of my biology homework on my tablet during the drive. We got to… Read More Happy Birthday My Friend
Meatspace is a term that my wife and I use for interacting with friends in the real world, as opposed to online interactions. When we lived in Illinois, most of our socialization was through the computer with people in all reaches of the globe, but now that we’ve moved to Austin we have a lot… Read More Out in Meatspace
I honestly can’t remember a lot about today. It went by so fast, and I really didn’t do that much worth noting. I do know that I spent a couple hours doing algebra homework, and I cooked dinner, and I spent some time playing Secret World Legends today, but beyond that it’s honestly just a… Read More Today Was a Blur
Today was a pretty lazy day. I did a few chores around the house, but largely I took it easy. I was supposed to go see my doctor for a non-urgent issue today after dropping my wife off at work after lunch, but I was falling asleep at stop lights heading back towards our place,… Read More So Sleepy
This afternoon we went to a barbecue put on by some friends of ours. We saw a few mutual friends that we already knew, a few that we hadn’t met yet, and one that we haven’t seen in years and years. The food was great – pulled pork and coleslaw bagel sliders, pork ribs, sausages,… Read More Plans Thwarted
So today is the Fourth of July which is a really big holiday here in America in which we celebrate our forefathers’ desire for separation of church and state by spending our children’s inheritance and setting it on fire to hear the boom. This day is usually marked by rampant patriotism, copious amounts of alcohol… Read More Partay!
We had a friend spend the late afternoon and evening with us tonight. She came over initially to drop off something, but that turned into conversation, which turned into her taking a conference call from our kitchen table, which turned into dinner, which turned into more conversation. I wasn’t very talkative but that was mostly… Read More Feeling Sociable
