Still Sick

Guess I finally got the flu that is going around. Been sick for over a week, but feeling much better today. I'll give it another couple days before I am 100%. This weekend is looking good. Going to a movie and the dentist Monday. Maybe just down to the beach Sunday. Listening to the local NPR station while I type this. Things are going well.

Sick Day

Tuesday. Back at work. Not feeling well, kind of achy and just tired. Really ready to go back to bed. Have to work and thankfully, it is not a busy day. The concert went well. Been doing a lot of reading and learning over the last few days. When I want to find out about something, I read and research. Always have. I don't think I have ever met anyone who was Polyamorous before. Though, I definitely could be wrong about that. No one has ever admitted it to me, anyway. I've been enjoying reading about it and learning for the last few days. Something new, discovery is always fun and challenging. Today is a good day to do it, too. Rainy, cool and met really not up to much of anything.

Spring Forward

I'm up late. Going to lose an hour sleep and I can't sleep. My mind is unsettled. Hasn't been this unsettled since I made the decision to go to California. Relationships are difficult. Always hard to really know what the other person is feeling about you, what they want from the relationship and even what type of relationship they want. This has been a couple of long, confusing days for me. I'd say 70% of it has been lost in thought. I don't hold out a lot of hope for tomorrow being any different. I do have the concert tomorrow night and I am going to do my best to have fun there. Still, not being on solid ground is unsettling.

Long/ slow day today. In the office. Going to do some laundry tonight (woo hoo, Saturday!) and not much else I guess. Might wind up watching a movie later. Been pretty deep I thought over the last couple of days and surprisingly emotional. I thoughtlessly insulted a coworker. Wasn't meaning to and I had no idea I had until he confronted me. Still feel bad about it. Me and my stupid big mouth. Of course, I apologized. Not that I feel any better about it. He's a nice guy and I am such a dope. Going to a concert tomorrow night. After the last couple of days, I hope tomorrow is better.

I've been doing this series of Pictures with my phone and posting them on Facebook. I'll be posting some here as well. I like this bridge. I get to see it almost everyday on my walk to work. It just strikes me as a nice walking bridge.

Saturday @ Work

It's about 2:30 in the afternoon. Working till about 5:30. I'll go down to the post office and check for mail, then head out to dinner. Think I may go to Los Gatos for dinner. I've been told there is a nice Thai place there and I seem to be trying a lot of Thai food recently. I do still need to go to that nice theater in downtown Los Gatos. It's looks really nice from the outside. Like an old 1930s theater. Parking is a struggle around there, but I'm sure if I can hit it on a Monday, I should have no problem. My weekend is near.

Boulder Creek

I'm in a small town. Population a little over 4,000. They have a nice little coffee shop, Chinese food, cool organic grocery store, decent pizza place. I kind of like it even though there isn't much here. I do have to say, the mountains here are very pretty. Big redwood trees. I guess my perspective in life has changed. Sure, living near downtown is very nice and I do have access to a cool theater that shows art house films, though it is about 45 minutes away. It's a nice area.

Monday Feb 12th

Slept in for a while this morning. Got up around 9am and took my time. After getting ready for the day, I went by, picked up the mail, grabbed a nice cup of coffee and then headed to get some laundry done. It was very pretty, cool day. I hung out at the laundry, just reading and checking Facebook while waiting for things to get dry. Once done, I drove over to a nearby Thai place and had a little late lunch. It was very good and reasonably priced for California. After that, I decided that I really was done running around for the day. I came back here and have just been reading for the day. It's kind of nice to be able to have a weekday like that once in a while. I did walk a bit and I also stopped by a Yoga place to look around. I am really thinking about doing some Yoga. just depends if I can work it into my schedule. Tonight, I'll listen to some music while reading. Time to get off the internet and relax.

Coffee & More

Off today and at a very nice coffee shop in Sunnyvale California. Sunny is right. 76 degrees outside on February 5th. Really going to be difficult getting used to all this good weather in the winter. Nice to be away from the cold, snow, rain for one season. Watched part of the Superbowl last night while at a friend's house. Glad to see someone besides New England get the trophy for a change. Looking forward to some local baseball in the next couple months. My plan for today. Hang out here, meet up with a friend for a bit and then head back. Nothing urgent. This may or may not be the best time in my life. Only time will tell.

Phantom Thread

I went to see Phantom Thread before I knew it was going to be nominated for Oscars. I had seen the trailer and it looked interesting. I will say, the trailer does not give you a good idea as to the content and tone of the film. No spoilers here, by the way. It took me a bit of thinking after the movie to decide that, yes I do like it. It is very well acted, set in 1950s England and I think it is difficult to make a good movie (or one that a lot of people will like, anyway) where the characters are not all that likable. The acting and the script and the directing really keep the movie together and make you want to keep watching to see what happens and how it turns out. I would not want these people as best friends or anything, but over all, it is worth seeing. The movie made me think and isn't that something a good movie can and maybe should do?

Mystery Machine

I think this is the second or third of these I've seen over the last.. oh, 20 years. The gang really get around.

Starting A New Day

Opened the door and saw this. Had to have a picture. It's a great new day.

Very Quiet Day

I'm at work. Not a lot going on. Doing some catch up work and just getting organized. Started out rainy today, but the sun is out now. I think I am going to leave for a bit, get the mail and maybe just have a short day today.

Just hanging out at Peet's fantasizing about travel. Thinking about going to New Zealand. Looks to be a beautiful country and why not? Restless and I do not know why. It's a very pretty day outside and that may have something to do with it. I really wish I had traveled when I was younger instead of getting caught up in all the consumerism and worrying about things that didn't really matter.

Getting ready to fly out. Waiting for my flight and getting ready to leave the cold. About 7 inches of snow last night and it was around 20f when I got to the airport. I love travelling, even if it is just across country. I should have done more of it when I was younger, ah well. 20/20 and all that. PTI isn't a busy airport. There isn't much here, either. So, if you're coming to the area (Piedmont Triad) and have the time, I would fly into Charlotte or Raleigh. Costs less and they are both more modern airports. If time is an issue, PTI will do.
