As I was saying...

The horrific part about yesterday was my inability to keep up. I had no idea how far behind the curve I've fallen. I lament my thought processes being slowed by my slow reading and comprehension speed, but I really had no idea how badly I've fallen off.

Firstly, I have had no new topic of conversation for a year. I just don't have enough contact with anyone to have an opinion on much of any subject, nor have I enough input of new information to be much informed of anything relevant. I was reduced to repeating old anecdotes, and my stories of bygone eras to keep conversation alive.

Back in the day, Bob and I would have discussed new technology, potentials for its use, up and coming players in technology, jazz, science, and whatever. Instead we degenerated into a pseudo-philosophical mutual dissertation on utopian society.

Lunch yesterday was successful. We went to "Michael's Unforgettable Bar-B-Que" and found it quite good. The roast beef seems to have, at some point, to have been associated with a cow. The barbecue beans were delicious and even the potato salad was good. Bob turned a favorable smile on the cole slaw, a rare occurrence for him.

Today he and I may go to the movies and out for a dinner of some sort. Ice Age? I'm not sure. Weather permitting, of course. MO is 35° at the moment.

  • I spoke to Lutron today

    I spoke to lutron today. That would be the person, not the corporation. He was on his way to D & D. I haven't done that in more…

  • Another day another dollar. I need a rate increase.

    I have been cat-waxing all day. I really need to write some more on my NaNoWriMo novel. It is a take off on Laurell K. Hamilton's Anita Blake…
