It was much more seasonable temperatures this week, highs in the 40s with cold nights. I was walking home one night. It was chilly but not freezing cold. My apartment complex has a space in the center. It has a grill, a fire pit, some speakers, and a fire pit. People use it for parties. It also has a bad wifi internet connection for streaming music. As I walked by I laughed to myself. I had imagined some poor guy out there with a hood and a laptop. I looked back and it was a guy in a hood huddled over the glow of a laptop screen. For some reason, this really confused and intrigued me. I waked up to him and asked him what he was doing with this exact wording. “What are you doing? And why are you doing this thing you are doing?”
He had just moved in and the internet wasn’t turned on in his apartment yet. He worked in IT and needed to login to work to fix something that was broken. Why wasn’t he using his phone? I didn’t ask. I told him good luck and went inside. I could see him out my window. He was out there for about a half hour.
I Burn a Pizza
We’ve had some really cold weather here recently. It has been well below the average temps. The day I took the pic above, my car said it was 6 degrees F. As I scraped the ice off the windows I felt the crisp morning air against my cheeks. I realized I really like very cold morning air. There’s something purifying about it. Then I climbed in the car cause it was really cold out.
These weekly posts that are supposed to go out on Tuesday keep getting later. I have such a busy and exciting life.
|Not the rainbow I saw|
Saturday it was really warm for November, 60 but stormy. I went for a walk. During the middle of my walk it started pouring down big drops of really cold rain. I pulled my hood over my head and trudged through. Despite the pouring rain the sun shined down. I started looking around for the rainbow. Then I found it. Not far away in the sky. It started in front fo a tree about 20 feet from me and then curled around to end about 4 feet in front of me. I had found the end of the rainbow. I looked but I couldn’t find the pot of gold.
Sunday morning I got a text that a package I had ordered from amazon was out for delivery. I would get it that day. I checked the tracking and they had a cool map. You could see where the truck was and how many packages before mine came. Next time I checked it said my package was almost here. I was the next step. The map showed the. truck literally 40 feet from my door.
About 45 minutes later I realized my package hand’t come. I checked the front door, nope. I checked the mailbox, nope. The tracker no longer had the map but still said out for delivery arriving today. Three hours later and still non package. The tracker still said out for delivery. Late that night I checked again and it said, “We are sorry your package was not delivered on time. We are working on the problem.” I assume they forgot to put it on the truck.
It came the next day.
I had a cold. Jobu had a cold. Everybody in this house was sick and annoyed. I didn’t go anywhere. Thankfully a friend brought me some of their Thanksgiving Dinner. The End.
Worst post EVER!
As I have documented, Jobu has a bad habit of waking me up when I try to sleep. I woke one early morning to Jobu whining. It was louder and more incessant than his normal whine. I mostly try to ignore his attempts to disturb my sleep but I got worried that something was actually wrong.
I climbed out of bed “What’s wrong Jobu? What’s wrong?”
Jobu slowly walked out of the room and I followed. He went into the kitchen to his food dish and looked at me begging. There was still food in his dish. It was about a quarter full.
“Really? You woke me up for this?”
He looked at me “Daddy I’m going to die.”
I sighed and filled his food dish.
He sniffed the fresh food and gave me a look like, I don’t want this. Then he walked away.
A couple of days later I was sleeping in late and the whining started. “DADDY DADDY GET UP TERRIBLE THINGS ARE HAPPENING!”
I get up and he walks past me and jumps on the bed to curl up where I had been sleeping. I guess I was getting up. Two minutes later he comes out of the bedroom and curls up in his cat bed.
