Not much else of note happening at the moment, other than waiting for the slow grind of things that are progressing rapidly, for all that they seem slow to me. I was seduced by a large fuzzy pillow. rhylar's wife was there, tempting me on. And yes, it was good for me, though I think it's maybe a little larger than I would have preferred. The pillow, so far, has had no comment. I find this, like it's soft, fuzzy surface, comforting.
(You may now remove your mind from the gutter. Since, really, despite the description, there is nothing to see here. Except a large, fuzzy pillow.)
Yesterday I went to up to my old community college to order a transcript and gather information. Growing up it never seemed to change. Now, in the span of what seems like not so many years it's all different. I enjoyed being old enough that I didn't have to care that I didn't know where anything was and could simply be amused by it all -- and amuse passers-by with my wide-eyed confused look and cheerful comments of "that building didn't used to be there. How unexpected!"
I've decided of late that I've become a weak geek, with my techie muscles gone all soft and flabby. In an effort to lift some techno weights I settled down, flames of determination glowing like a holy aura, to resolve a problem with one of my computers that's been bugging me for nearly a year. Less than 10 minutes later it was fixed. And for this I waited nearly a year? Ah well. At least the bar that's been holding up several projects is now removed.
Next month they have a 25% off sale on Asian fabrics at a near-by quilting store. I remind myself that I'm saving money for studying in Japan for six weeks or so.
This article warmed my heart, and is making me plot a reply. And is painfully demonstrating to me why I want to spend time studying in Japan. While I can hold down a conversation in Japanese, I can't write for beans.
