The · Pensieve

C. mentioned in passing a desire for me to write down the rules I have for myself, no doubt because I have mentioned their existence on more than one occasion. Because I am in a reflective sort of mood tonight, now seemed as good a time as any.

Not exactly the Ferengi Rules of AcquisitionCollapse )

One day remaining until I start my cross country train trip. Unfortunately, I'm about as organized as I usually am at this point in the process. I'll need to adjust my list of things to do before I leave down to the point where it will actually fit into the time I have remaining before I leave.

Perhaps that was a bit too dramatic. Today merely marks a milestone. Today I was asked if I qualified for the senior discount. In response to my apparently confused look, the clerk clarified that she was asking if I was 55 because I have grey hair. >_<

Where's the good news in this? I can only assume that the vast majority of people do not get any noticeable grey hair until they reach a minimum age of 55. Rejoice, people!

Addendum: C. was horrified. This raises the count of the number of times I've seen her struck speechless to 1.

Apparently, it is now important to have multiple phone charging mechanisms. I believe I left mine at the office. I have 2 more hours of calls, only 37% battery remaining, and one appointment here at the house before I can go back to the office in search of it.

Last night's mildly wacky dream was sponsored by the letter と.Collapse )

I hate getting out of bed on mornings like these. It's pleasantly chilly, and both pups are curled up on the pullout bed with me. Beef seems to be getting around better this morning and I'm hopeful that continues to be the case even after he finishes all his medications over the next week or so.

I recently had the same dream three nights in a row. In looking back at what I've written here, it seems that this became somewhat of a repository for odd dreams for future reflection.

Without further ado...Collapse )

I had considered going out of town for my birthday, but that doesn't appear to be possible as I have an appointment on Friday night, and another commitment likely on Saturday afternoon. Thus, I'm now looking for ideas for how to celebrate my birthday that are within day-tripping distance. To help narrow the possibilities, I've decided on a them: squares, in celebration of turning an age where I am again a perfect square. (Depending upon one's perspective,I might be considered a square all the time. :P)

Wolfram Alpha. A computation tool. Imagine if I'd had this as a child, rather than having to program a computer to do my math homework. (A calculator wasn't allowed, but I was never forbidden from using the computer to do it.)
