The above linked article shows what candy hearts would say if they were written by people in long term relationships. Some of them are funny. Most of them are accurate.
Months ago, I got a ticket to see the Violent Femmes on a Thursday night. I took the day off work the next day, anticipating being out late. Long story short, that didn’t quite work out. I still had a great time, but just didn’t stay out as late. The Mermen opened for them. I hadn’t heard of them before, but my friend had. I was not disappointed. Here are some clips from the show.
My body does not appreciate sleeping through the night. Usually it’s my bladder that wakes me up.
I have a friend who is a few hours ahead of who sometimes chats with me while I can’t get back to sleep. The other night, while I was awake, he asked me if I was chatting during intermission. I think I like that better than insomnia. Sleep intermission is what I’ll be calling it from now on.
I have been trying to find a bookclub that is a perfect fit for me. I have found two, but I stopped going to others because of a variety of reasons. There were a couple of bookclubs that made me feel this way. They did not like my take on the book, or they loved it and I hated it. No actual bouncer, though.
I was at the main library in San Francisco, after not being there for a few weeks. I found that they’d changed the displays and exhibits. The exhibit on artists, etc with disabilities was nice.
As I was walking through the exhibit, I found an artist I knew by reputation. I’ve read his book and I hope to read his upcoming novel. He had no idea that his likeness was in the exhibit. I hope he can get to the library to see it.
I have been going through draft posts and deleting stuff that I had just held there. If I felt like I wanted to post it, I finished up the post and scheduled it, so I would have a post or more daily.
So, some posts that are more odd than usual may be popping up. Fair warning.
The above linked article is basically a quick recap of the book, The Radium Girls. It is very interesting, and is a good article, but is more of a summary. It’s worth reading if you’re not going to read the book.
