Herding loose ends

The end of the month caught me off guard. I’m always pretty out of it this time of year, so it’s not surprising. I think I’ve hunted down everything I lost track of the last couple weeks. Now to finish the tasks, check the lists, and enjoy some peace of mind.

I’m in food trouble

I just found a hot dog place within comfortable walking distance from the library where I like to work. This could be trouble.

I’m also drinking vending machine coffee while at the library. Whatever. It works for me.


I have this new writing project I’m working on, and I figured out a way to trick myself into gathering notes more quickly. Each time I have the urge to check ADN or Twitter, I add a new thought to my notes first. I’m collecting notes in an Evernote notebook, so I can easily get the notes down then switch to the social apps, no matter which device I pick up for the task.

Getting the notes down is proving to be more fun than catching up on my timelines. Sometimes I get distracted and skip the social stuff entirely. This all feels so strange.


I think I just need to go find a factory job in Kansas and keep my head down for the next couple years. Work steady, live light, rock no boats, stockpile cash.

Die from boredom.

I did that thing where I forgot to eat meals all day

I had to run out the door to make it to the courthouse pretty early, and taking the bus meant leaving my house before 7:00 AM. No breakfast.

I was chosen for a pool that doesn’t have to sit through voir dire until Wednesday, which meant we were dismissed today at 11:30 AM. I took the bus home, then began dealing with Monday morning’s work. No lunch.

I got completely wrapped up in stuff and forgot that food is a thing. It’s now into the evening hours, and so far I’ve had no dinner.

I might need to rectify this.
