Well, dear readers, occasionally I actually look at notes that I’ve scribbled on papers next to the computer and I am occasionally baffled by what I see. For example I just looked down at a yellow sticky and read “meet me in dahl”. I stared at it for about ten minutes before I finally figured it out – I’d been offered some books to use up the credit I got recently, so meet me in dahl was – a copy of Meet Me in St. Louis and then a copy of Roald Dahl’s first book. Frankly, I like the title Meet Me in Dahl, don’t you? It’s mysterious and eye-catching and perhaps it will be the title of my next novel.
Yesterday was a day of food. I don’t really like having a full day and evening of food, but I can count on the fingers of one hand the number of times I’ve had three meals a day, at least in the last forty-five years. But yesterday I ate three meals. It began early, when she of the Evil Eye arrived and I went and had a little breakfast to kill time. I had two poached eggs on an English muffin and some bacon. I sat there for an hour after I finished, but still needed to kill more time. So, I did some banking, then I decided to satisfy my barbecue craving, so two hours after my poached eggs I was at the Kansas City Barbecue having a brisket of beef sandwich – it was perfection. Then I picked up no packages, after which I came home and sat on my couch like so much fish.
Yesterday, I watched the final four episodes of House of Cards season one. They were all good and I enjoyed the season finale. Things do get a bit repetitious, as you might imagine, but there was only one real clunker of an episode for me – episode eight. I read a couple of reviews of that episode and everyone seemed to think it was dandy. For me, since it took the characters out of their milieu, it was a time waster, with most of the episode centering on Kevin Spacey visiting his old military school and reuniting with three classmates. One revelation, which I gather was supposed to be shocking, certainly wasn’t for me. Other than that, I’m looking forward to season two. The question is whether to sign up for Netflix and watch it via streaming right now (Netflix has a free trial month) or wait until the Blu-ray is released. I’ve never done Netflix and don’t have any idea how it works – I do know I can get it on my TV.
Then I had an evening dinner meeting, so it was more food. But I was good – just a dinner salad and a BLT-A. So, all in all, bacon and eggs, a brisket sandwich and a BLT-A. Not terrible and I probably eat more food at one Ruth’s Chris meal than all three of yesterday’s meal put together. After that, I came home and just did stuff on the computer, including writing the blurb for our new release.
Today, I shall hopefully arise after a good night’s beauty sleep. Then at noon the darling daughter is coming for a visit and we’ll go have a fun lunch somewhere. If she feels like barbecue I’d be all for going back to the Kansas City Barbecue. But we’ve got endless choices so we’ll see what she feels like. Other than that, I’ll just relax and watch motion pictures.
Tomorrow, I finish casting and choosing songs for the Kritzerland show, then I have a meeting and a meal. The rest of the week is work sessions with Sandy and Lanny, and a bunch of other meetings and meals, plus seeing a couple of shows.
Well, dear readers, I must take the day, I must do the things I do, I must, for example, have a meal with the darling daughter, relax, and watch stuff. Today’s topic of discussion: It’s free-for-all day, the day in which you dear readers get to make with the topics and we all get to post about them. So, let’s have loads of lovely topics and loads of lovely postings, shall we, whilst I hit the road to dreamland, where I shall figure out the plot of my new novel, Meet Me in Dahl.
