Oooo... it's been too long since I've had a good steak.  I need to make that happen soon.

 

Nice long soak in the tub last night after packing to get the last bit of relaxation in before Gencon.  Calm before the crazy... :)

I'm thinking about my tub for tonight.  Half a bottle of Pinot Noir left from my garden party on Wednesday.

p.s. I never understood taking vacations that leave you feeling like you need a vacation.  I'm more of a gal that wants the only decisions to be like should I have a Pina Colada or a Martini.

Typically, my vacations are on a beach somewhere, rum punch in hand.  I really enjoy cons, though, so I try to even it out.  Get one full week of relaxing vacation, then two or three cons, which are usually Thurs-Sun.

With the cooler weather, I moved a bunch of plants around over the weekend.  Now on Monday, it's pouring out.  This should clean all the smoke out of the air too  ☺️

I  hate to admit it, but I get a real kick out of watching the meat chicken football/basketball teams get embarrassed.  I guess a lot of the players and most of the "fans" are so easy to hate.  But the real icing on the cake is when the fans realize that they got sucked in by the hype yet again.  Anyway,  I live next door to a big Wisconsin fan.  As I was watching the Michigan State/Northwestern game, I could hear him whooping it up over and over through the window.  When my game came had a commercial break, I changed the channel to the other game.  Whisky was leading 35-0 and the crowd was chanting overrated!  OMG!

At the end of Chuck Lorre's shows, he writes about something.  You have to pause in order to read them, but most of the time, they really make me smile.  A lot of times they are rambling and bring up things I never would have thought about if he hadn't brought up.  But sometimes, there are life lessons or epiphanies.   Oh if I had a dollar for every unexpected life lesson that totally changed my entire life for about 3 days...  

Missive #628: A Small Complaint

"I really dislike purchasing things with a credit card and having to sign my name with my finger.  No matter how hard I try, the resulting signature looks like it was written by a jonesing meth addict having a grand mal seizure.  Who's the genius who decided our index fingers are writing utensils? ....  Anyway, that's my small complaint.  There are many other things that annoy me, but I won't go into them here.  I prefer to pace myself.  If I've learned one lesson in this life, it's that bitching and moaning about the little stuff isn't a sprint.  It's a marathon.

 

Of course reading that bolded part reminded me of another nugget that had changed my life sporadically.  I still remember it all these years later.  I kept waiting for a tee shirt that had the 2nd panel from the left/second row, but alas I never found one.

I just looked at the AP rankings for football.  Minnesota Gophers are several spots higher than meat chicken in the rankings.  I guess pigs do fly.
