Captain’s Log 5,884
Yesterday was one of these. It was lovely.
Even running out of half-and-half was not enough to move me out of the house.
I read a fascinating book by Bill Bryson. Learned a lot about the times of the mysterious bard. There isn’t a whole lot known about Mr. Bill.
Very witty. But that’s Bryson for you.
I like Bill Bryson. He’s from Iowa. That’s one reason to like him right there. Then, factor in his brilliant mind and you’ve got a good thing going. This is one of my favorite books.
Great stories about “cheating” on the trail (getting off and hitchhiking to a point 20-30 miles down the road). He also wrote about some wacky nut cases out there with agendas beyond belief. Hilarious! I was falling off my chair.
I actually did fall off my chair last year. I didn’t sit down correctly in the chair part (I guess that’s called the seat). I was too close to the edge and the chair just wheeled itself right out from under me. Thank goodness I was alone at the time.
Here is a list of other things that should happen when you are alone.
Falling UP the steps
Reading your Google Maps upside down
Putting dishwashing liquid in the washing machine because you have run out of soap (about as bad as using shampoo)
Putting shampoo in the Jacuzzi tub for any reason whatsoever
Using dishwashing liquid on your hair (especially Dawn)
Chasing crickets with a plastic cup at 2:00 in the morning
Farting (unless it’s a sleep fart and those around you think that’s cute)
Singing opera in the car
Drinking juice out of the bottle
I have an incredibly busy week ahead of me. Six days at the museum (but who’s counting?) Tick that time away one minute at a time, sweet Jesus.
