I was driving home from my chiropractor’s appointment this morning, trying to decide what to post about today.
~ I thought I could do a “Nearly Wordless Wednesday,” but I don’t want this space to get bogged down with themes and memes; I do not want to end up with the same features every week. BOR-RING!
~ I thought about perhaps composing a short story for publication here, but all of my short story ideas are still in their most rudimentary stages. (I’m working on a story about a woman whose husband tells her she’s “too nice to people” and how she simultaneously resents his saying that and believes he’s right. I’m also kicking around the idea of what happens when two people who haven’t even thought of each other in 20 years reconnect on Facebook. Neither of these things is ready for any kind of life outside my head yet.)
~ Mr. Chili informed me this morning that the people who predict such things are saying that there’s going to be a perfect convergence of weather around Monday that has the potential to bring “a significant snow event” to New England.
The folks I go to for my weather information are only predicting as far as Saturday night, but you can bet your bootie that I’ll be watching the forecasts from here on out. Parking at Local U. sucks to begin with; adding snow to the mix can only bring more parking hell. I was really, really hoping to escape the semester without having to deal with snow, but from the sounds of it, I might not get my wish.
~ I thought about throwing up a treatise about how I feel about the nature of discourse, and about why I sometimes come off in ways that surprise people who think they know me.
~ I thought about bitching about how my left arm is sore in ways that I can’t adequately describe to my chiropractor, and about how very hopeful I am that the adjustment I got this morning will help.
~ I thought about writing a review of The Brief History of the Dead, which I read in less than two days and heartily enjoyed.
~ NPR is doing the National Day of Listening Project, and I thought about maybe doing an interview with one of my readers who I don’t know in real life.
I’m a seething cauldron of ideas, is what I’m sayin’ here, People, but none of them feels quite right for today.
So, what would you like to see here? Do any of the above interest you? Anything else you might want to read?
