Wednesday. Watched whatever on the tablet last night, turning it off to find an AM or FM station reporting on the primary election, but couldn't find a decent one and so turned out the lights not long after nine and awakened then at twenty minutes to six. Too early, of course, but I've become pretty good at delaying in order to get out the door at close to twenty minutes to seven. Which I did, wearing the heavier winter coat as it was overcast and cool causing the eyes to water a bit. Just a bit.

Had the single pork chop, scrambled eggs, country potatoes, toast and coffee for breakfast, the only thing that came to mind. Read what they had on the election, the two “mistakes” I'd made in my own voting corrected by the rest of the electorate. Still wondering at my fuzzy-headed approach to the ballot, not something I'd have done in the past. I don't think, memory heading where it seems to be heading.

You're beating that shtick to death.


Some signs of sun through the clouds walking home, the pandorea flower pretty much gone, a picture of the pet store window again on the way back. Same with the Lime scooters being serviced by the company as I passed a line of them again at the same spot near the lake. Will I try a trip on one? Not in our traffic unless the zombies are coming and I have to grab one in an effort to escape. I mean zombies, after all.

Later. Other than a brief walk up the way to take a picture at the construction site, stayed inside and watched whatever I could find on television and the tablet, the primary election results the main topic on the news. In other words no exercise again. Hmm. Life in the fast lane this is not.

Evening. Remembered there was a Warriors game this evening and so dialed into the online score in the middle of the second quarter and then again in the third through the early evening. Spaced out for a while, but then remembered and dialed in again when the game was over and the Warriors had won. Which is good. There'll be a parade if they win another game, something local to photograph and, after three in a row it would be hard to think they won't.

Otherwise too much time on the tablet watching things I realize I've seen before back when on television, old BBC catch the criminal stuff. Still, clearly don't recall who'd done what to whom, albeit interspersed with scenes I recall as they play, so it is quite a bit like seeing them for the first time if the actual first time happened long enough ago.

As in more than a week?

Be nice if I didn't have to think for a minute to decide that's not quite true.
