It turns out that when you stay sober all weekend, Monday is much less of a bleak, depressing, nerve wracking, anxiety-ridden hell. And it just might even be a good Monday

I have been absentee this weekend, but tomorrow is Day 20 for me! It is also my 40th birthday (shameless plug).

Happy Birthday Pouncer

Public holiday here in Blighty

I have been seeing posters for the London Coffee Festival stuck on every available space.
Turns out it is just a few minutes away in the old Truman Brewery in Brick Lane

Seems like something the newly teetotal me should check out

when I went to bed last night, Her Braininess said, "Wake me up at 6 o'clock."
Even though she was stayng up all night... ????
amazingly I woke up at 5 - must have some sort of internal alarm - and made a big breakfast. I go to wake her up at 6. "What time is it? Wake me up in 40 minutes." Just doing my duty.

I discovered a weird buzz in my ears at a certain frequency coming out of my head yesterday. I whistled up and down the scale today - buzz is gone.
Still concerned about the bp tho...
Have a great week everyone. Enjoy the holiday - bank day? - over there.

HAPPY BIRTHDAY POUNCER!

Happy birthday Pouncer!! Have a lovely day!

Brain, I hope your doctor can give you some relief and help out. Not something to mess with. Sounds also like the strain of finals is getting to you both. Wishing Mrs. B the best of luck.

We made it this weekend! If you didn't, where did you get sidetracked? Focus on that area.

Happy birthday, Pouncer! Your forties will rock!

Got hit by a big hailstorm last evening, there's still a couple foot high piles on the deck, along with shredded leaves. Rhododendrons lost all their blossoms and the bleeding hearts are no longer flowering. But the sun is out this morning and it's a wonderful sober Monday.

Ruby, you really need some time off while the kids are still in school, a couple R&R days for yourself. Sick days don't count.

Happy Monday!

She just left and said, "See you in a couple hours. I'll be free!"

Yesterday she warned me that she is going to start being in charge around here... lol. Like she hasn't been for the past year already.

Now the arguments about keeping old magazines can begin again.

Who's keeping the old magazines? Not surprisingly, I keep old magazines. A long family trait. Paper and ephemera. Does anyone really need two ostrich plumes that adorned a great grandmother's hat at the turn of the century? And I'm not talking this past one either.

I should concoct my own hat like the avatar.

I used to stock pile 'old' magazines such as my bon appetit . But that was a reference source and important publication to hold on to. Yep, when I was a single dude, I subscribed to cooking magazines.

And I have always held on to my fly fishing magazines and a few angler publications.

The current debate is over The Economist, a weekly rag that we have been getting for the past five years. Although I believe it is without doubt the best weekly publication available, discounting some of it's bias, there is no need to keep boxes of it waiting for them to spontaneously combust.

Amazingly, I keep denying Forbes and Money re-ups but they still show up for free. I ordered these when I had some kind of deal and figured with her background as a player in world economics in the past it would interest her. Apparently she had a bad break up with economics world and wants nothing to do with it. Yeah, she could have taken a high position at van guard but wanted nothing to do with it. So I'll struggle through nursing school... I guess it's the same as me not wanting to enter inside the fence line of my old business.

We are a funny species no doubt.

I think I have a stash of sports illustrated from a while back too. Purged many but kept a few of the 'collectable' ones.
