So I had this brilliant idea... [Jan. 25th, 2006|10:00 pm]
John
You may remember that I decided, once, to walk to the bank... about three hours, or so, 1.5 out, 1.5 back. Quite an adventure....

Well, I didn't do that this time. I wanted something a little more do-able. I walked, instead, to the post office.

You know, I distinctly remember the post office being *before* the bank, *not* past it!

Ow.

Once again, I realize I need a goretex windbreaker. I have a waterproof one. I know it's waterproof, because I had to open the cuffs at my wrists to let water pour out, on occasion.

(It was, of course, raining, and in the mid-to-high 40s, so I needed protection from the rain, and even, perhaps, a bit of body warmth trapping... so I had to keep wearing the jacket. But still, *blech!*)

On the plus side, a Peanut Buster Parfait can help deal with thirst, hunger, and anhedonia when you hit the home stretch of your walk. If anyone thought it was strange to see a long-haired weirdo eating ice cream in brightish-orange jacket tonight, well, they've just had their consciousness expanded!

I had an interview today for the first of the two jobs I'm interviewing for this week. The one I really want is going to have its interview on Friday. I have a day to recover from a slightly stupid misremembering of distances. No problem... I'm more fit than I was, last time I made that kind of mistake.

Ok, then, so the reasonably-priced orange jacket isn't as good as we'd hoped. But at least it's ORANGE!!!

(I can't even remember where the PO is, but you are mighty, and you deserved your PBF. And break a leg on the interviews...)

I do this sort of thing so often... I count myself lucky if I haven't dragged someone else along with me. "No, really, it's really close! I'm positive!"

Best of luck with the interviews!

I love long walks, but I prefer it not to be raining! :-)
