Personal

Cottontail: yes. Peter: no.

When I was 3 or so, I went to visit the Easter Bunny at the mall and get my photo taken, as was the custom of the time for children of that age. Walking back to my mom, I proclaimed loudly, “The Easter Bunny habs da bumps.” Apparently it was a girl bunny.

A random thought

I might be a computer programmer, but I’m no math whiz. As soon as I hear about a train leaving Chicago at 60MPH and another leaving Detroit at 50MPH, my eyes gloss over.

Re-tired

I am tired tonight. I was tired yesterday, hence re-tired. I’m not sick. Just tired. And not tired of anything or anyone. Just weary. Worn down. Non-energetic.

I haven’t shaved in two days…

…let Octobeard begin! I’m hoping to remember to take photos every day as the beard returns to assemble into a clever video later. Also, I will not be taking photos immediately after I get up in the morning when I’m still puffy from sleep. And I will also try to use a device that can…
