Bird song…

leave a comment »

I often listen to instrumental or ambient noise as I’m trying to fall asleep. I set a timer and doze off to something which blocks out the car noise and idiot neighbours revving their engines at 11:30 at night.

Sometimes, I forget to set the timer. Those are the nights I wake up at 2am to bird song, and am very confused.

Some days…

There is just not enough coffee in the world.

Today is one of those days.

I was in San Francisco (again) a couple weeks ago.

Despite the complete failure to find an iphone there, the weather was fantastic.

Here? Well, it says the temperature is only 5-6 degrees lower, but it feels a lot colder.

It could possibly be because I’m not hiking up steep hills constantly.

Every now and again we need to change up our walking route, though not really for any reason than it lets me add a little more distance to my route and get a bit more exercise.

I don’t even really notice the route anymore. It just is. I’m not out to look at the scenery of the streets in my neighbourhood, I’m out for a walk.

So this week, we’re going all the way to 7.5, but we’ll hit 11… eventually.

No, I didn’t NEED an iphone, but I wanted it.

So finally after stalking the local apple store for a week and a half, I finally got my paws on the one I wanted (so, apparently, did everyone else).

Man oh man, why do I always forget how much of a pain it is to set up a new device? It’s not as bad as a new laptop, but oy…

Now; where are all my wifi passwords?

I stopped posting for a few weeks. I had reasons and some of them were even legitimate.

Truth be told, I am feeling a bit like everything is [not so] awesome (Apparently if you have kids this was a great movie, but I thought it was bloody awful. Then again I watched it right after How to Train your Dragon 2, which was pretty good.) and I’m tired of being tired all the time.

I have also decided after two years of half-assed attempts at NaNoWriMo, I’m going to give it a real go again this year.

I don’t have any more time, but somehow I’ll figure it out.

So please, enlighten me, dear Postal Service (USPS or Canada Post, doesn’t matter, you both suck).

Shipment goes from somewhere in eastern Washington state, to Seattle to Redwood and then to LA, gets lost for a week who knows where, and then after travelling backwards from the original point of origin ends up OVERSHOOTING where I am.

You know, I’m pretty clear on why you guys are losing money left, right and center.
