I slept pretty well last night, but read deep into the night before drifting off. I dreamt I was helping stage a prison escape for someone that I knew was innocent, but was going to be shot at dawn for some crime. Lots of walls crumbling down, and gunfire. We didn’t have weapons, but were dressed in Swat-team body armor….I presume to deal with the whizzing bullets of the guards. We got into a rinky-dinky little blue car, and tooled off at a good clip down the road, hiding underneath a pile of shipping blankets, and eventually took up a camp inside of an art museum, eating stuff from the snack concessions, and huddling together, wearing ancient egyptian garb for warmth. I don’t know why we didn’t burn the picture frames.
This morning, I woke pretty early, and took a gentle stroll… none too taxing. Maybe 2 miles, if that. The road construction is totally out of control, and quite a rough set of terrain for me to avoid. Tomorrow, I explore the area by the starlite lounge, and the new laundry. I didn’t see many landmarks today, but it was refreshing and enlightening to meander about. Walkies always makes me feel better and hones the mind, I feel. When I returned, Ol’ newtie took his meds well… I’m glad that he’s as tolerant as he is. Lately, I’ve been wondering why he hasn’t messed with the light switch, but I guess it’s just as well. Plastic milk rings are toy enough. I’m glad he still digs playing fetch.
Based on the US census, the random name generator. I may never have to rack my brains to create a story character’s name again. Yay!
Pointless ramble – I have a cable channel that’s generally very entertaining, but keeps changing owners. ABC Family, formerly FOX Family, formerly the Family Channel, formerly the religious right channel run by the 700 Club. I wonder what causes them to keep switching hands? (I was never partial to the 700 club, mind you, but the others tended to have some quality shows when I’d surf around.) It’s sort of like that Italian restaurant on the corner that keeps going out of business, and starting up again a month later with a new name… So far It’s sold Moroccan Food, then been four different Italian places. (three of which came and went so fast, I hadn’t an opportunity to sample the wares, to compare.) When it was Due Amici, I delighted in the eggplant parm and pizzas they provided. Perhaps on vacation, I’ll go there, and have a sit-down lunch there to ask the folks what’s up with that.
Well, I’ve been away from work for four days… it’s time to put three good ones in today, and decide which week this month I want to take off and goof with.
Let’s see where the road leads today… Wish me luck on today’s journey.
