Random Thoughts #43

Wednesday is for random thoughts.

  1. Kids are going back into our town’s schools this week and next, right when the spike is hitting the Delaware Valley and surrounding districts are shutting down. To say I am concerned is an understatment.
  2. We knew that Trump wouldn’t exit gracefully, but I dared to hope he wouldn’t try to burn the place down 1 on his way out. From the way things look at present it appears this hope was in vain.
  3. Grand Admiral Thrawn is a very interesting character.
  4. One of the cool things about having my wife teaching from home on Wednesdays is I get to experience a bit of her teaching the class.
  5. I could have ridden a bike to the episode of Veep that was filmed at the Four Seasons Total Landscaping parking lot.
  6. I love my 2020 MacBook Pro. But oh boy would I love one of the new Apple Silicone Macs. Twenty hours of video playback!
  7. I’m not doing NaNoWriMo this year 2, but last week I got to write a good chunk of The Darned Conspiracy. It felt good.
  8. I’m burning DVD’s for the few folks who can’t stream worship. I’m not sure folks will be able to play them 3, but it’s something I need to do. I feel so 2004, and I can finally use all those blank DVD’s I have.
  9. The desk chair in our bedroom squeaks a lot. This gets me many stares of doom because I’m more fidgety than a toddler and the squeaking can be endless.
  10. I took last week off, and was grateful for the time because I needed a breather. But in a lot of ways being “off” right now is more stressful than being “on.”
  11. I long to stroll Duke of Gloucester street with my camera. Maybe in 2021.

  1. Metaphorically. 
  2. National Novel Writing Month. 
  3. When I asked one person if they had a DVD playing the response was, “My daughter says I do.” We laughed together at that.
