This and That
Today has been surprisingly and remarkably productive, despite my feeling more than a bit under the weather the past few days, stalking around like a feeble wizened old woman and sneezing bursts attacking at regular intervals. I awoke at a decent time in the morning, ran one very important errand that had been postponed and delayed these past few months: a visit to my bank, which holds the most inconvenient hours for any professional who works typical business day hours. Following this sweet success, I gorged upon some huevos rancheros for brunch, sated and content. Whomever decided that avocado, black beans, fried eggs, sour cream, tortilla, cheese, and salsa should become a breakfast stable must be rewarded handsomely, or become the namesake for some highway or bridge somewhere. Perusing a local thrift shop, I then found a new wooden wine rack for cheap, which also seamlessly matches some of my other wood shelves. There was also the pathetically triumphant dissembling of my very fake plastic miniature Christmas tree, which, though it has been providing ample cheer and glow these past few months, needed to retire.
In this fury of productivity, a simple and comfortable almost ballet-inspired off the shoulder sweater covered me. Perhaps, in another decade, I could have been that iconic metal welder who moonlights as a provocative but prudent and pragmatic exotic dancer. If only.
