1003 Sa * awake 6:15; partial body scan, snuggle * up 7:30; W=194.0; drugs, nose, teeth; coffee * Makefile for Journals/PJ posts. x Fry's: 1.5TB drive, $90 (sold out by 11am. Maybe next month.) | came home from shopping with very low blood sugar. Good thing no walkies. & verified that Barnard's "high-power" USB port spins up the Vantec drive. * Costco with Colleen ($175) after lunch. Fun! ~ eggs, cottage cheese, small tissue boxes (only thing left is the ccheese) & .draft symlink in PJ/Makefile & YD made devilled eggs for dinner. Yum. ! grateful. & N can't make it to OVFF. (09:49:46 PM) nrivkis: I'm disappointed, but I'm also relieved at not having to find some way to produce $400 out of thin air. I'll miss you and the con and everyone there -- this is the first one I won't be at since I started going in 2000 -- but as you say, it's the right thing to do. Hopefully I'll be back next year. (09:50:30 PM) nrivkis: Request, though: would you get together with Joellyn and run the Just Plain Folk circle? People have come to expect it; I don't want it not to happen because I'm not there, and you're enough of a folk musician to do it well. * bed 11ish
The day was mostly taken up with two shopping trips. The first was Fry's, where I found that, not surprisingly, the $89 1.5TB drive advertised in their flier had sold out by 11am on Friday. Got a couple of other useful items, made one more stop on the way home, and got home very low on blood sugar. It was, evidently, a good thing I hadn't gone for walkies first.
The YD wanted to bake; we sent her across the street for eggs. She came back with 5 dozen.
After lunch Colleen suggested a Costco run -- her first with the scooter. That was fun. I never did get a walk in, but we probably did a mile or so in the store. Go Rocket-Snail!
By the time we got back, the YD had made two dozen yummy, if slightly small, gluten-free cupcakes. I win. She also offered to make devilled eggs for dinner, if I boiled them. Colleen suggested making 2 dozen, which was probably excessive for three people. But pretty tasty.
I probably don't need to wonder why my triglycerides are too high.
We went for a drive in the evening; very pleasant. More conversation than usual.
An IM from pocketnaomi telling me that she simply can't make it to OVFF this year. She was afraid I'd be upset over losing my backup singer; I was much more concerned about how disappointed she is. She charged me with running the "Just Plain Folk" circle. Must remember to pack a copy of Rise Up Singing.
I am so ready for this last year to be over. Going by the Jewish calendar it already is; by the usual pagan one we'll be sending it out the door at out Halloween party. I'll take one of those, thanks.
