So, Where Was I?
For as full as my days have been, I haven’t been posting much. I don’t want to test the tolerance of my audience for my droning on about the minutiae of my life (granted, that’s what LJ is FOR
, but I want to justify my tagline “Not as tedious as most”
(trademark pending)). I don’t want to drive people away with too much of this:Wednesday – One of the nice buses for the ride home. Volcano didn’t erupt. What a good day!
I did have an odd experience. I frequently bake a couple pounds of ground chicken or turkey at a time, which acts as the starting point for several meals. This week I noticed I had a packet of fajita seasoning mix which wasn’t elderly

** Okay, I’m amused by silly things. Like cascading parentheticals and iterative footnotes. And the photo I took for this year’s Birthday cards.*** It still
makes me snicker.
*** If you haven’t seen it, tell me your birthday**** and I’ll send you a copy.
**** If I already know your birthday and I missed it, Sorry! Those with birthdays in November or December, be patient. (But still tell me, if I don’t know it!)
Hey, you read all the way to the bottom! Thanks for not finding this too tedious! Until next time, Happy Meatloaf! Current Mood: amused
