Intro to 44

I am me

To be taken or left as you find me.

I shall have no regrets, either way.

Today is my birthday on a loverly cloudy with light sprinkling day in the Valley. 

So feel free to order that pastry to help me celebrate. 

I try not to ruminate too much on these days. I’m in a decent enough place in my life. No major worries and I have my health.

Birthdays are the days one is given leave “To glory in self like a new monster”, in the words of one James Douglas Morrison. To be a bit selfish and just enjoy being. 

Still getting a bit settled in my skin, not sure that will ever be a completed journey and probably shan’t be. But I do like me so that is something.

I shall be dining at a favorite eatery with MBM later today. My usual procrastination has necessated a couple of errands be done but I shall enjoy the day regardless.

Tomorrow MBM and I shall sojourn to the Ren Faire and quite enjoy ourselves. Then the surgery of real life shall commence, as it does. (Come on, lottery. *laughs*)

But I hope you enjoy your day as well. Raise a toast to yourself. Huzzah.

…I need a Sherlock tattoo.

Just saw the season finale. Wow. I need that script to pore over and live over it again and again. Will be seeing it in the theatre.

Yeah, cut my hair today, is why took you a bit to see me. Little too short on one side but good enough.

Oh, you won’t believe what I had to do on Monday. I had to go to the bank and order some checks. Only use them for the rent so only needed one box, but I had a moment of wondering if they actually still did them.

There was something I meant to tell you about last week, something I came across. International Correspondence Writing Month.

Something you might want to share. 

Rained some this past week. Was nice and cloudy all day today.

Still need to see Rogue One. I did buy Magnificent Seven blu ray.

Daily writing prompts have slipped a bit but will be catching up. Starting to think up a list of projects to do.

Been a slow week otherwise. Tell you what, let me gets us a refill and we’ll go check on what the others are doing.

Weekend Coffee Share – 8/1/17

Hello again.

How has today found you? Well within parameters, I hope.

As you see, it’s a bit cloudy today. But not rain clouds.

We have made it past the first week of the new year. But the last one has left it’s mark. 

I had the TV volume turned all the way, with the closed captioning on, one morning whilst getting ready for work. It was on the CBS morning show just by accident.

Happened to glance over to see an run of old pictures of Rita Moreno and the text was high points in her career. Of course, my immediate thought was that she had passed and was so relieved to find out she was there to chat up her new project. Realized I had post 2016 death fears and probably will for some time.

I did not know she had been with Marlon Brando for eight years. Will have to look for her autobiography at the library. She’s still a sharp wit and great sense of humor. 

I came across one of those anecdotal posts on the Facebook, this one was of men relating instances they were subjected to sexist comments and behavior. It is easy to forget there is another side to that coin.

My interest in bullet journaling continues. I spent a day off working it on whilst listening to the audio book of The Cuckoo’s  Calling by Robert Galbraith. It was a good day.

I’m keeping track of the days til September 1st in it. If you’re a Harry Potter fan, this year will be 19 years later, and Albus Severus Potter will be off to Hogwarts.

I’m trying to write every day. Bought a book with daily prompts in it. Had to catch up the 3rd and the 4th a day late but been good since then.

I saw the first signs of Spring. The Liberty tax service sign twirlers came out. April is not far behind.

The first episode of Sherlock was brilliant, as to be expected. I won’t be home yet when it airs tonight, so have to see if can be up at 2:30 for a repeat. Might catch Rosemary and Thyme, a mystery series from some years back on the BBC.

I’m in the mood for a scone now. Oh, I found this map that shows the distribution of how ‘scone’ is pronounced in the British Isles. I rhyme it with ‘gone’ myself.

Another work day soon to begin and I should be off. Don’t forget to have a chat with the others.

Weekend Coffee Share – 1/1/17

Welcome and thank fuck 2016 is over with! Now to see what 2017 brings.

It’s been raining last couple of days and today. Adds the holiday chill to things.

Sherlock’s fourth season starts today! By all accounts it is going to be great.

A great show of how I am is that I’ve been vacillating between Harry Potter weekend on Freeform and The Walking Dead marathon on AMC this weekend.

New Year’s Eve was nice. Went to a friend’s house as is the usual. More subdued from previous years. I’m usually in charge of the firepits. Fella saw fit to try and ‘help’. I must admit I was not happy with that and gave him quite the frosty reaction. I tend to have a set idea on how certain things should be done and do not look kindly on those who throw in without asking my leave. 

Having a makeup Christmas with the family since I was working on the actual weekend. Waiting on the ham now.

I do hope 2017 is better but don’t hold out much hope for such. Just have to muscle though to the other side.

Discovered that a member of my team, the Dallas Cowboys, was born in England and actually went to high school with Daniel Radcliffe from Harry Potter.

First year with using the bullet journal. I’m feeling good about it and think it just might stick, knock on wood.

Well, I do hope you and yours have a fine year. Find those moments to enjoy.

See how the others are doing.
