Have I really not been here since Sunday? Well, I must have been off doing exciting things with fascinating people. Hmm. Not really. What I have been doing is making phone calls. And sending things off in the mail. And waiting for return phone calls and replies to show up in the mail. And whilst waiting I've been working on little projects around the house and adding programming to my Netflix instant queue. And then negotiating with the 19yo as to whose turn it is to hog the wireless internet bandwidth. Can you say new episodes of Merlin?!?! And I have decided to refer to the man I am keeping company with as Reg in this space. Reg updates will be posted as things develop. If I think it's any of your business. Wink, wink, nudge, nudge. Had a productive chat with possible legal representation this morning and a pleasant visit with my former physical therapist this afternoon. According to the 19yo I made the best pasta ever last night. Just a little chicken, bacon, red and yellow bell peppers, onion and garlic in an olive oil and white wine sauce. I managed to not injure myself with the mandolin slicer! Which is fortunate because I had a rather painful connection between my right brow area and the edge of my lovely glass top desk yesterday afternoon! Reaching for the pen I had dropped while continuing to look at the computer screen instead of the direction I was moving my head toward. This collision resulted in some swelling and loss of epidermis and blood but so far no bruising. I do try to limit myself to one klutzy episode per day. I generally recommend no injuries as the ideal way to go about the business of the day. But then I think, who will use all those bandaids and disinfectant and antibiotic cream taking up space in the bathroom. I was never a Boy Scout, but I do like to be prepared.
