First up, check out my old friend Andy’s (I’m not saying he’s old, he’s just been a friend for a long time… but he is older than me) blog. His observations are way more interesting than mine, plus he likes comic books. And he majored in Japanese (IIRC- maybe it was “just” Linguistics?). And his blog is very visually pleasing.
Second: Southern California is going up in flames around us, and I was reading an article the other day with people talking about what they would take with them if/when they had to evacuate their house. What would I take?
-Our cat, Oliver (he’s quite furry and I’m surprised he hasn’t lit on fire before. He looks to be more combustible than most animals, so he gets a very high priority. Well, that and I really like him).
-The Macbook and my 2 hard drives. (Yeah, superficially, my life is pretty much that computer. I don’t think I could bear to lose my Protools song files from one drive or my iTunes library (especially if I couldn’t grab my record collection) on the other).
-As much of my music gear as possible (I would be uncontrollably depressed without it. Priority goes to my SG and the Mesa amp head, both of which I have a ton of sentimental attachment to.
I guess that’s it. Maybe a few pairs of jeans, some t-shirts, and a hoody. And a power strip, if I have tons of time. Dawn said similar: cat, computer, pictures, jeans.
Lastly: In case you wondered (and you definitely shouldn’t), I eat pretty much the same thing for lunch every day. As follows:
-Main course: Usually a Tofurkey/cheese/sprouts sandwich. Peanut butter and (only) raspberry jelly, or leftover pasta are the only variables.
-Trader Joe’s String Cheese: Like a preschooler.
-Trader Joe’s Woven Wheat Wafers: Like Triscuits, but better because they are slightly saltier.
-Trader Joe’s nonfat yogurt: Usually only raspberry, but I’ve rotated in black cherry, starting today.
-A gala apple.
I don’t know what motivated me to type that out. I apologize.
