Substance, such as it is, first. I have two tickets to the Opera in the Heights production of Mozart's Don Giovanni for Friday, March 23 at 7:30pm. I only take up one seat. If you would like to accompany me, I have officially started taking bribes. :-P
The Denny's by my office takes take-out orders over the phone. This is a beautiful thing. I placed my order today and wandered that direction. It wasn't easy to get to, but I got a scenic tour of the artificial lake that sits in the middle of our business complex. Got startled by an enourmous white Koi rising eerily through the murky brown water as I walked by. Found a cubby-corner between the wings of a self-storage facility on the way that held a sleeping bag, some cardboard, and a pile of styrofoam take-out rubbish and beer bottles. I can't even begin to process how that made me feel. Got my Grand Slam and came back, to be hailed by duckies hoping for handouts. Sorry, webby dudes. All mine. Over all, more a Friday in jeans sort of trek. Maybe I'll sit and feed the ducks some day. When it isn't so damp.
Boblets still on the up and up. Thank you for all the kind inquiries. Oh. Hold on. I need to go order a Million-Bubbles Air Pump.
Never mind. Found a good suggestion on line about how to use the Aqua-Leash as a pump. I'd thought of that myself and forgoten. I'll just do that. Anyways...
Oh, I called the city and found out that my court case got dismissed. Guess they found my driver safety course paper work after all. All's well that ends something something...
