I tink I'm tick

Whine, whine. I hab a code. The whole left side of my face is pressurized. I hope I still have some left over Nyquil from the last time I had a cold.

Ah, that's better. Nyquil is great stuff. I'll either sleep better, or I won't care.
^ My nose feels like this big.

Morning glory

I'm not a morning person ... never have been. I've always preferred to stay up late and do creative things like tatting, knitting, writing, beading. This, of course, makes getting up early in the morning difficult. Because I have a day job and am required to get up early, I force myself to go to bed. Also because I get up early, I'm usually tired enough by 10 p.m.

The last few days, when I've walked through my dining room which has sliding glass doors looking east (I'm on the third floor), I've been treated with a glorious site. It almost make getting up worthwhile.

The weather

Living in a cold-weather climate gives me a real appreciation for warm days in the fall. It was in the upper 70s today, September 26, in the upper midwest. Tomorrow it will be in the 50s. Sigh. At least it will be cool enough to sleep tonight. A thunderstorm rolled through in the early evening and the temperature dropped a bit.

A lot of effort required

After a great deal of effort, I figured out how to log in and create a new blog entry. I don't know why it was so difficult. It just wasn't obvious to me. And I'm computer literate.

Well, this weekend Chinatown Tai Chi Center is hosting a number of seminars and one exhibition (Saturday, September 23, 10:30 a.m., in case anyone is interested). Grandmaster Doc-Fai Wong, founder of the Plum Blossom International Federation, will be conducting seminars in Chi Kung, empty-hand forms, push hands, and a dao form. Testing is Friday night.

We're also having our first Italian banquet. Rather than book a Chinese restaurant, we decided to be different this year and go to Bucca di Beppo.

If you're interested in Chinese martial arts, look up for more information.

September 1, 2006

I only started this because I wanted to make a comment on the guy who works for the Pioneer Press and gets paid to eat only food-on-a-stick for 10 days. I want that job.

Check in later to see what else I can think up.
