Nervous

Well, I wrote a post a few days ago, and then I got paranoid and deleted it, and then I had second thoughts and thought I’d restore it, but it seems that when WordPress deletes something, it stays deleted. Told you decision-making was not one of my strong suits....

The Grand Tour

Sometimes it’s hard to believe that this is actually my job. Well, jobette. And that they pay me to do this! A few days ago, I left work around 11:00 am to go on a tour of artists’ studios. This is a new local business, and the tour operator...

Memorable

Grant Street, the heart of San Francisco’s Chinatown Well, I’m back home in my humble Hooterville abode, and it’s my birthday eve already. I haven’t even told you about my trip to the City yet. So little time, so much slacking! But then, Slothfulness is one of my special...
