Highlights of the weekend: low humidity, Chinese lunch on Saturday (cashew chicken), Manning’s ice cream cones with the fambly, Sam Adams Summer Ale on the deck with Toney (the ale was only OK… but it was beer), Athens, GA: Inside/Out for the first time in 20 years.
Lowlights of the weekend: as soon as I got going on the third draft of the “book” my time was up, lawn mowing, standard low-wattage feeling of not getting enough accomplished.
I think I’m going to take Wednesday off from my job during the coming week, and try to make that lack of accomplishment sensation disappear…
I need to put in some all-day marathon sessions, I really do. I’d go back into the yurt, but school hasn’t started back yet, and the place is undoubtedly overrun by buzzcut hicklets named Dusty.
As I type this our internet connection is down. It’s been unstable for the past few days. It goes down for a few minutes here and there, for no known reason. But this time it’s down like it means it. I think the bed has officially been shit, my friends.
And notice I said “internet connection?” I don’t like when people say their “internet” is down. There’s only one internet. Folks don’t have their own individual internets. Ya know?
Nitpicky, you say? Yeah, well, I’ve heard that one before…
Yesterday I downloaded two obscure gems from the early 1980s, almost forgotten albums by Any Trouble and Urban Heroes. I loved both during a previous bushy-haired lifetime, and now they’ve been captured by my iPod. Slowly but surely I’m replacing every LP I’ve ever owned… Legally where possible.
OK, we’re successfully tapped into the internet again. What the hell, man? This crap is making me purse my lips like a Sunday School teacher.
And I need to get ready for work now. I’m gonna have a Miranda Cosgrove frozen meal, drive 36 miles, immediately ask to have Wednesday off, then turn up the Clive Bull and Jean Shepherd.
Wish me luck in accomplishing my important Sunday tasks.
I’ll leave you now with a simple Question of the Day. I’d like to know if you’ve ever known someone named Sam. That’s it. Use the comments section below to tell us about the Sams you have known, and I’ll see you guys again tomorrow.
Have a great rest o’ the day!
