mythbusters adam mayhem

"Going to Cuba is not like going to Connecticut."

Overheard on NPR this morning

Well, no. They have better Cuban food there, for one thing. And much nicer beaches.

Tea this morning: mango passionfruit
Teacup this morning: I rinsed out the kitty in filing drawer cup.
Temperature: 42 degrees. Hardly worth recording.

And now, yoga, and then slouching towards work. Time to blow up something. Possibly a space ship and a couple of world leaders.

...huh. I have this sudden sense I've got my grove back. More carnage: fixes problems every time.

Did I mention I climbed a 5.10 yesterday? (okay, yes, I'm still geeked. But then, when I started climbing, one of the things I said to myself was "I would like to be good enough at this to climb 5.10 someday." And while having sent one 5.10a on the slab in not the same thing as climbing 5.10, not really, it puts it within reach. It's visible now, in a way it wasn't before. So cooooooool.)
hustle mickey trust me

beware of them that look at you as an experience

Item the first: yes, I have seen the new Simon's Cat. And now so have you. 

Item the second: I really, really, really did not want to work today. But I applied butt to couch and told myself I could quit after four pages, and by then my peeps had shown up and were working, so I got 2300. Go, peeps. Go book.

See? Progress? Progress is so comforting. Especially since once ashacat's baby comes, I expect there will be a week or so when I am being Baby Support and do not get much done. And I want to get a draft of this book finished (Even a Bad Draft) so that I can fix The White City and its chapbook "The Forty times Forty" and send them to Bill.


35300 / 100000 words. 35% done!


177 / 400 pages. 44% done!

Item the third: here's a cute photo of the existing beloved godchild, with me and The Jeff (not in that order).



That's what my hair looked like after the purple washed out. It's the Rare Good Photo of me, so enjoy it. *g*

Item the fourth: People turn around a lot in Greg Brown songs.
