Gee. I just got over Christmas.
I'm simply jotting down a few of my recent random thoughts.
-So Amazon is going to take over GoodReads. I can't decide if it is good or bad. I'll wait to see what happens. But I know I would favor it and be excited if GoodReads would take over Shelfari.
-So, there's a new Pope. I like Bill Maher's take: Francis is a good name, but his real name, Jorge Bergoglio, is a great one. It sounds like a brand of expensive shoes. Oxfords or pumps by Jorge Bergoglio.
-Baseball is back. Baseball, the seven month show preceding football. I prefer the real baseball of the NL...no DH.
-Winter is over, I guess. My golf course in Arizona was closed one whole day.
But that could happen any time of the year if enough rain falls. I think the average is once a year.
-I noticed some Facebook 'improvements' as they call 'em.
When I see my pages look screwier, I know they made an improvement.
-I would plant some flowers along the walk and driveway in the front like we used to every spring.
The javelinas would like it, too.
-I worry a little bit about Iran, North Korea, and our southern red states.
-Next month I turn another decade. I'm old enough to be Pope, get discounts on lots of stuff, and have strangers call me 'Sir.' I have a long and event-filled history; I can remember some of it.
-It's not just me who can't make a decision. I hear "I don't care" and "It doesn't matter to me" quite a lot.
I served on a jury recently. We got hung; we were 6 vs 6.
-I don't waste quite so much time on the computer as I did in the past. I waste a lot on my Kindle Fire now.
-There are a few TV shows that I like to watch. (Alert! "Call the Midwife" Season Two started on PBS this week)
Commercials annoy me more than ever. Whoever invented the MUTE button - thanks a million.
And speaking of annoying commercials and being old, I resent all of those drug companies targeting me for their drugs-with-side effects-worse-than-the-illness during the news programs.
Can I watch one sporting event without Viagra or Cialis? Commercials, I mean.
-My wife wants a cat. I do and I don't.
-My WIP is at nearly 50% completion.
- Oh, my! It's April?
