And other phrases too difficult to say with a mouthful of cookies.
So Jitterbug took the girls camping Saturday.
And Aldis the Goldenboy went to Beatle Sue’s and StanStan the Rockman’s house for the night.
So I had the house to myself from 1pm Saturday until about 1pm Sunday.
I mean, Mr. Boobodie was here some of the time, but he kept to his tentacle dungeon most of the time so he didn’t affect my alone time in the slightest.
I suddenly had 24 hours of time to do whatever I wanted.
So I caught up on Marvel movies.
I was behind.
I watched “Black Widow” first.
Then I made a buffet plate of leftovers for din-din before heading back to my office to watch “Shang Chi”.
Both were excellent.
Then I took the photo for the day and went to bed early with a headful of melatonin.
Yesterday’s word of the day was: Thanatognomonic.
(Medicine) signalling the nearness of death
I was supposed to be dressed like the grim reaper, but I, for some fucking stupid reason, don’t own a scythe.
Plastic costume version or the real deal.
A fucking tragedy.
Or is it a travesty?
The point being that I just sat in quiet for nearly 24 hours and recharged my batteries.
That is as close to a vacation as I am going to get any time soon.
And I am very grateful for it.

My notes for today’s, tomorrow’s, and Wednesday’s photos are pretty on the nose.
Today’s note was: “People holding something.”
Tomorrow’s note is: “People standing on something.”
And Wednesday’s note is: “People doing something.”
The planner version of myself is a real smart-ass to the rest of the versions of me.
To be fair, the other versions are also smart-asses.
Other than the photos, I have no fucking clue what I’m doing this week.
I should probably maybe go figure that out.
See ya’ tomorrow.
More soon. ~SC
