So, What Have You Been Doing With Your Life?
Well, I have the two sites thing happening. Olympics, March Madness. I've seen The Post, Black Panther, and The Greatest Showman. I've had family holidays, 3 busted cars (one twice), the great winter plague and SAD to deal with as well as a huge fight between my pharmacy, PCP, and insurance company.
Not to mention broken pipes, frozen toilets, and 3 or 4 Northeasters. How was your winter?
One thing I took the time to do was get down to D.C. and attend #MarchForOurLives. I have it on good authority that between 800,000 and 1 Million attended (the estimate for the Women's March has been raised to 2 Million btw). It was fun and I was happy to be a part of it. I stayed with my cousin and she brought her two kids. After the March we went to Comet Ping Pong.
The pizzas are personal size so you can get what you want (anchovy and bacon for me, yumm) and I was only able to finish half. The kidlings really dug the whole ping pong concept and they have a big monitor TV so you can leave them alone to be kids while you chat with the adults in your booth. A very nice place, I highly recommend it. Wait time was an hour.
I also got a chance to stop at Waffle House (scattered, smothered, covered, capped, and country) which always brightens my day since I get in range of one about once every 3 years on average. Only the indicator Cherry Tree was blossoming so we just did monuments, FDR is stunning and very reminiscent of Campobello where I have eaten snails (burgers in Canada are all well done, order steak instead).
In May I have another round of doctors (of course I have them, I'm 120+ years old) but then I shall travel as is my custom and the Tubz will hardly be the focus of attention, though I'll try and keep up.
So I'm not at all the same man doing what I did when I was writing twice a day and running 5 franchises on dK, contending for Top Commenter by volume (or at least better than Elise). I'm much more mellow. I have been writing every day since April 2005, DocuDharma was founded in September of 2007 and The Stars Hollow Gazette in June of 2010.
I like to keep contact with my friends though and many are here in one guise or another. Not dead yet so you can save your poking sticks for later. I contribute sporadically when I see an opportunity and have something I think is relevant. I read when I get a chance. I could do more but I'm glad I don't have to.
Otherwise every day is a blank canvas. I'm not particularly fond of sunflowers. They're complicated. But it's not that I lack Chromium Yellow or can't paint them.
