Random Neuron Firings
- I’ve been up since 2:40. Yay.
- Had my high school fall concert last night. They did well, considering the spiritual I chose probably should have been programmed in the spring instead of 5 weeks in. Regardless, I am proud of them.
- Must have Helen and Lars over for dinner; I haven’t seen Helen since the wedding on 13 September. That ain’t right.
- Breaking news: I am going to be a grammie again. #1 son and Jakey’s mom are expecting!
- As Halloween approaches, I feel obligated once again to remind everyone that the ridiculous misconceptions about the “holiday” are still rampant, as amazing as that seems, in an age when primary and secondary research sources are so readily available. I mean, it’s a free country & all, and folks can practice whatever rituals they like (be it going to church on Sunday or sleeping in late and reading the Times over coffee), but labeling Halloween “evil” without knowing the facts is just arrogant. I should stop here before I launch into a “labeling” fit myself.
- Speaking of Halloween: now that our football coach is doing these “Thursday night under the lights” practices, I can actually have rehearsal in the daylight hours and be home in time to feed the little beggars who come to my door on the 30th. I can also be there in person to take pictures of Jakey in his costume. Fun.
- Life is just too short.
- It is now 5:00 a.m. and I’m on my 2nd big mug of Dunkin’ Donuts coffee. Life is good (except for the 5 a.m. part).
- I hate Christmas music. I mean really. I think I’d like it if it weren’t in my job description to try and make it interesting year after year after year. I’m not complaining, mind…well, yeah I am. Scratch that.
- I am looking forward to driving home from rehearsal without turning on my truck lights.
- I am *not* looking forward to spending all weekend working on this research proposal. Never thought a Saturday rehearsal would provide me with a welcome respite…
Off to the races, my fiends.
