Just made BBQ to go on a bun with fresh coleslaw and taters to put on the side. But no one to share it with! My neighbor went to sleep... I'm sad.
Yum. I made slow cooked beef ribs on Wednesday.
Well, maybe me and Lou Reed...
I was just listening to some Velvet Underground earlier! Man, that guy was great.

It pays out pure GPs! Of course, I think you can only take second this round... *Wink*
Is it actually ironic that I was having trouble opening the package of my new knife set because I didn't have a knife... or am I strange?
"I cried when I wrote this song." ~ Steely Dan

Ever happen to you when you were writing?
Yes!
No, not really. Even when I write something as an emotional release, I don't cry while I'm writing. I guess I don't need two kinds of emotional release at the same time? No idea.
So I'm Stuck In This Tiny Room

Now, I've lived in small places, including a cardboard box, but I've never been told I have to stay there. Well, not since I was nine or ten... I'm introverted by nature, but even I get stir crazy after a while. And, while you're out during this madness, the last thing you want is to be near other people. Six feet? My sweet patootie! If you can reach me with a punt, you're too darn close!

What makes it worse for me is this, and some of you know, but most don't. I just moved to Texas from Oregon for a job, and my family is still back there... with my mastiffs. Sure, I can talk to them, but it's not the same. Part of this job, and all of it so far, has been research. If I finished something? Read it again... and again. It was driving me nuts. But, one of the items they gave me was a list of Texas cities, with pronunciations. If you don't live here, well, the document is 17 pages long, two columns, and a font so small you can barely read it. Oh, and some of these places defy all the rules of any language I've ever seen.

So, it was a beautiful day in Austin, and I was out on my balcony reading these town names when a neighbor came out. I asked him how to say one, and I tried repeating it, and he chuckled and worked me through it. Well, since everyone was home, guess what happened? Yeah... I had half a dozen people "helping" me with these crazy things and having a really good laugh. The beer and wine were flowing, and we had one hell of a little party... separately, of course. Thankfully, I'm a natural comedian and enjoy lots of laughter. It was human interaction as fine as we could have it!

Yet another heart-warming tale. Sounds like it was a great time and you may have made a few friends in the process. Magic blooming through the madness.

I agree with Lilli ☕ ! Another heart-warming tale and it sounds like you have a gift of making friends in the process.

That didn't work out how I wanted...

The new company where I was just hired did an awesome thing. One person started it, donating to a local food bank and said she would match everyone else who also donated. Her mother also said she'd match it, and the company president did as well. My $50, along with others, turned into over $20,000 meals for people in need. That makes my heart swell. Tomorrow, I'll tell you a funny story about feeding the hungry!
That's awesome!
I live in a new apartment. The toilet seat will literally not stay up. I think it's ironic no woman lives here... anyone else?
