I could swear I heard a couple of bombs going off on the 4th. Not firecrackers. BOMBS!.
Reading two weeks of Bulletin just really shows how conservative their editorial pages are. It's so strange, because I disagree with almost everything the editorials, letters and columns say.
How did I find myself here?
I was down to one day of working at the store this week, and it just wasn't enough time. I'll have to go back today to finish up.
The holiday falling on Wednesday was interesting; Monday and Tuesday were slower than I expected, but yesterday was busy.
Looking ahead, we have an early Thanksgiving (the 22nd) and Christmas and New Years falling on Tuesday. Reading the tea leaves, I think that's a good day to maximize sales.
But who knows?
I put the shipment of jigsaw puzzles out for sale at Linda's store. About 60 of them. They stack very nicely, not taking up too much room. Started a puzzle on the table.
I'll be interested to see if they sell.
It was a momentary madness on my part, but I don't think it will be a disaster.
All the unavoidable mirrors in the motel rooms inspired me to go on a diet.
For some reason, this isn't that hard for me. (Well, it isn't easy, but I can do it.) I set a goal and just do it. I'm thinking about 15 pounds, and so far I'm down 5 pounds. Also, walking. I was going to do 10K steps, but decided on 7000 minimum per day as a more reachable goal.
Turns out, I do about that many steps on a busy day at the store. Yesterday, for instance, I didn't sit down once.
I haven't been able to do any writing, if you're wondering.
Even when I was writing full time, I found summer and holidays a difficult time to get anything done. The fall (memories of school?) and the depths of winter are the best time to concentrate and not be distracted by family and events.
I'm keeping my hand in -- writing a little space fantasy for my own amusement.
So -- I liked Lincoln, Vampire Hunter.
I guess I'm easily amused. The major criticism the reviewers had was the lack of humor.
Hey, vampires are a serious business! At least in my book.
Have I mentioned I usually hate campiness?
