Steal this book (now available as hypertext)
It’s already getting warm again… 81F during my 9am bike ride? Something to note about tunnels… they’re loud. The noise doesn’t have as many traveling options as a free, open area.
Well, my new savings account has already gotten $.04 interest, and it’s only a tiny amount of seed money until next paycheck. Next deposit, my rate will jump a little bit, which can’t hurt. Most of my funds landed in checking for bills and whatnot, until I decide how I want the sliding scale to go. I’m still waiting for the pay pal deposit to show up (probably won’t appear until Monday…) so I can take care of a little treat or two.
Two people on my reading list have deleted their journals… and they’re right next to one another on my list. I wonder if the next ones to go will be connected to them? Odds are slim on
I recently heard the “McDonalds Theory of War and Peace,” which starts with the observation that no two countries that both have McDonalds have ever gone to war with each other. A middle class strong enough to support a McDonalds is presumably never going to support a war with an equally developed country. Note that Vietnam, Iraq, Cambodia and Somalia are all Big Mac-free zones.
Dave wants to get together at about 4… that’s going to screw up my schedule. I probably won’t be able to hang out with him today after all. (I was shooting for a morning to noonish sort of thing) I wanted to get some tunnel shots in the early evening. Dan’s grading papers, and my bro’s sleeping, so it looks like all of my available 2-legged friends are out of the hang-out option. I don’t know if I’m going to go to the hobby store today… I might swing by B&N and pick up some books with my gift cards. The good one is only three miles from here. Yes, I think I’ll do that. A cup of iced coffee and some fresh reading would be a lovely addition to my day.
Until later, dear journal!
