A spider bit me on the back of the knee. Probably while I was sleeping. Dirty rotten bastige. On the upside, it's finally over the hump and starting to look like it's healing. It's been a constant distraction for days, though. It was really grody for a while there.
Despite all the bugs, I still really love living here.
Bandaids do not adhere well to the back of one's knee.
I still use words like gnarly and grody and cool. They're fun and I'm not stopping just cuz they're passe.
It's RWA National Conference week. My FB feed is filled with pics of authors having fun in NYC. I wish I was with them, but in a way, I don't. NYC is crowded enough. Add in all the people from the RWA and I feel like having a panic attack just thinking about it. Still, I would love to hang out with my friends. Except for the drinking part.
Yeah, I don't drink. Nothing against other people drinking. To each his own. I'm just not interested in it anymore. I probably drank the allotted amount of alcohol for 4 other people earlier in my life and I'm kinda over it.
Near-beer makes brats that are just as good as real beer brats.
I spent this morning paying bills. I love having all the bills paid for the month, but man, I hate paying them. Writing those checks and seeing my bank balance shrink? Bleh. Still, at least I have the funds to pay all our bills every month. Always a positive. I remember those lean years when I didn't and would play the financial roulette of 'Who can I get by without paying this week? Pay the electric and not buy groceries, or buy groceries and put the electric off 'til next week because they won't start fining me until I'm 15 days late.' Fun fun. Or those times in college when I would buy a pack of cigarettes because smokes were cheaper than food and acted as a appetite suppressant.
What's on your 'this m that' list today?
