For those one or two of you who may have wondered where I was, I’ve been circling the drain in the throes of anxiety, depression, and the world’s stupidest addiction. Clicky computer/app games. For a year and a half. I hit what I intend to be the bottom on Friday, with a financial thing I won’t go into.
I posted two days ago about my daughter’s not being in touch with me for several months, though apparently she had been in touch w/her dad/stepmom:
I’m supposed to be working tonight but it’s hard to concentrate.
So Cronyboy and I went on our alma mater’s eclipse trip, which included two days of tent camping with all meals provided and various optional group events before the big one Monday morning. It also included transportation to and from our city, but we missed out on that because Cronyboy had so much shit to pack up,…
I am packed for our camping/eclipse viewing trip but Cronyboy has sooo much electronic and photography gear and he’s still throwing it together. So we will miss the group bus ride to our campsite and will have to drive direct. Le sigh. It will be weird to be offline for a whole weekend, haha. I hope we can get…
Here they come!
Just in case anyone else here is still playing. I noticed yesterday that I was suddenly getting shittons of points.
It happened here.
New event: through April 20, double XP, half-price Lucky Eggs, and allegedly a wider variety of Pokémon in 2-km eggs (of which I don’t have any so can’t verify).
A week and a half ago I posted about not knowing whether I’d get into Bolivia without already having a visa.
Today I’m taking off for Bogota! Leaving the house around 6 pm, have to get everything in order before I go, make sure I don’t take anything I don’t need and don’t leave anything I need, pay any bills that need paying before I go, etc.
So I have the trip of a lifetime coming up next week, 10 days in South America with my son. 6 days will be in Bolivia. I’ve been going my merry travel-preparing-ish way thinking that I will get a visa for Bolivia when I get there, that that’s standard procedure. Then I get a Lonely Planet guide and it says get one…
But it could have been worse!
They’re having a Valentine’s Day event now thru the 15th. Double candy for everything, and a proliferation of pink Pokemon. Plus lures last for 6 hours.
It appeared from the latest Duolingo club post that there was a need for a GT Spanish club so I started a new one. GrupoLingo, code BVTZ63. Nos vemos!
Someday soon I will be out from under all this work and up in Bellingham with my son and Cronyboy and his fam. I REALLY want to do a day trip to Vancouver but it will have to be on the 22nd or 23rd most likely (though the 24th is possible, Cronyboy thinks border crossing may be crowded). We may or may not have…
Well, yesterday after a fairly productive week I went into a downward spiral. Partly because of financial issues and partly because I don’t know why. Oddly I had just downloaded this guideline for what to do in these situations but I didn’t do any of them, I just kept feeling overwhelmed and taking breaks to play…
I don’t think I’ve seen this posted here but there’s a conservative group that is trying to run a boycott on Target because of their bathroom policy. Here’s the link to the Snopes story on it in case you don’t want to click on the group’s foul website:
Middle of the day before American Thanksgiving (at least it is here). Are you at work with that impending-weekend feeling? Did you leave early?
