worm food

Weeble wobble

Finished book 10 of Recluce yesterday after work. I decided to resist the temptation to start on book 11 (the final book!). I don't know how much longer I'll be able to resist, though. Started reading the Communist Manifesto last night. I got it as a wedding present, and I've never read it. Lights out at 11. Woke up at 2:30, then at 3:30, then at 5:00. No sleep after 5, so I got up at 6:00. Cleaned the basement some. It looks quite a bit better. Still have several piles of crap to deal with. Also cleaned up the area on top of the dresser in the living room that has the CD player and CDs on it. All of that crap has been dealt with, and I even put the extra CDs away in one of the drawers. Eventually, I should probably get another CD rack, or a CD rack capable of holding all of my CDs.

The appraiser came by. He made sketches of the place, asking me a few questions. Then he took a look at the condo docs and spent a few minutes making notes. Then he went outside and measured and took pictures. That was that. Still no idea how long this process will take.

Did an hour of work. Then went for a walk. Nice day for a walk, and I went a way I haven't walked before. Lots of little local businesses with various people walking about. There's a place that promises gelato, so I might have to check that out. And I briefly considered stopping in at one of the many barbers I passed to get a haircut. I still might. If my clippers were working, I'd probably give myself a haircut. I might try to futz with them, see how much of a mess I can make of my hair.

Plans changed, and I don't think I'll be going to Writers With Drinks tonight, but I am still planning on going to the Diesel.

Time to do some Krayzen work, I think. I'd been doing it at the computer, but I think I might print it out and take it upstairs, where there's more light and I can be by the open front door. I wonder when it will be okay to take the plastic off of the windows. This month's electric bill was $100 less than last month's!


The past few weeks, I've discovered that I can't dance when I'm upset. I have to be emotionally into the dancing and feeling good about my dance partner. I guess other people can separate what they're feeling from the physical act of dancing, but I just can't seem to do that. It's like my body doesn't let me move well when I'm upset.
