Starting to doubt the breeze

Tuesday, March 3, 2020

I bought a thing and it was supposed to arrive today. In hindsight, I shouldn’t be buying ANY more things. But the deed was done and I could make a list regrets later, but who am I kidding? I can hardly make a list of things I want to accomplish, let alone a list of regrets.

Good news:
1. I got to work in the lounge with the garage doors open
2. Sunlight
3. Re-Listening to “Androgynous” by the Replacements (thx to a tweet from Merlin)

Bad news:
1. The item didn’t show up after all
2. I was starting to doubt the breeze

cooler tones

My wardrobe is decidedly moving to the cooler tones, away from buffalo check and dull green.

In other super exciting visuals for this day, here is our IKEA organization wall in the coworking space:

Begrudgingly bid adieu

Started the day with coffee and CBS Sunday Morning. There was a segment about coronavirus… The United States had the first recorded casualty. It didn’t sink in at the moment, but this is the first time I heard the respiratory disease referred to as COVID-19.

After that? We watched the first episode of Kidding, which I never took to, but with Ray and Sheila’s strong recommendation I would tear through the rest of the first season over the next week. Dark and weird and good.

We spun the new Harry Style’s record, again—which sounded extra buttery on the elegant Zenith cabinette stereo.

After our breakfast plates were empty we sat around the table and squeezed a few more laughs into the moments and begrudgingly bid adieu.

Buster, Sheila, Ray, blurry

Drove up to Columbus to see Ray and Sheila on this extra day of the month. Her birthday was around the corner and the timing was just right. Well, as right as it could have been.

The evening was perhaps, a little blurry. We stayed up way past all of our bedtimes. We dug up old photos while trying to back up an iMac. We took a selfie. We sat outside around a bonfire. We listened to the new Harry Styles record.

We enjoyed all the moments.

He’s got some dimples

Robert had us over for dinner. Tried his best to find frozen Empress to no avail—that was our go to Cincinnati style chili growing up. (It’s got little red hot peppers in it that sets it apart from Skyline and Gold Star.)

We made do and had three ways and coneys and caught up.

Brayden’s getting mobile.

He’s got some dimples.

Robert Beatty

It was the end of the week and Tom and I were frazzled. I had read a tweet from Robert Beatty that he’d be speaking at University of Kentucky.

I love his work.

We went and ended up sitting on the floor of a packed school room trying really hard to not touch anyone.

Washing our hands and using hand sanitizer every 15 minutes afterward.

But easily the best part of this day was being on the road with Tom.

Stare off into nowhere

Thursday, February 27, 2020

Went to Corryville and picked up a board game.

Ate pizza for lunch.

Starting to stare off into nowhere after reading news.

(That was a month ago.)

3/27 – Today I woke up from a half dream where a reporter asked the president at a press briefing, “How do you respond to those that say you’ll be known as “ass mouth” by a significant majority of Americans based on the fact you are talking out of your ass?”

Trump stunned, silent.

The reporter continued, “You’re a terrible president.”
