Brunch is an interesting concept for someone who gets up before 6 AM.

<braindump>By the time we got to brunch this morning, I had taken a shower, walked an hour or so, did a load of laundry, changed the sheets, put gas in the Ninja, dropped off a huge bag of old clothes, and ran the roomba in two different places, including a part of the floor in one of the dingy old rooms in the dungeon. And I forget what else and the verbs in that sentence feel like they’re all over the place and if they are, I don’t care a fig. It’s notable that I don’t think I have vacuumed the dungeon in several *years*. Yes, it is that bad.

Brunch does not begin until 10 at Seva on Sunday and I don’t think Mouse would’ve wanted to get up at 0-dark-30 even if brunch *had* begun earlier. We had a fantastic brunch and then we took a walk down by the river. By that time, the temperature was in the 40s and it was HOT walking down there. With slippery, melting snow and MUD everywhere. After that, we totally switched gears and hit the fabric store. Er, actually we didn’t totally switch gears because I still had my boots on. Because of the snow and MUD. In retrospect, I’m a little surprised that I was allowed *in* the fabric store with those boots on. I won’t tell you what the damages were but I will say that I was HOT while we were in the fabric store. Because of the boots, of course. Then a little dip into Meijer for heel thingies and hairspray. Yes, hairspray. No, we did not get Aquanet. It’s for Mouse’s play. So are the heel thingies, actually. Then (whew) home. Except. That I went out again, for my daily (on the weekends anyway) pilgrimage to the Plum Market. I saw one of my profs from community college there, which was a pretty huge shock (say that in a British accent), although I guess teachers have to eat too. He didn’t see me and I didn’t feel like yelling, “Hey teach!” all the way across the store. It’s probably just as well. He is the one that is directly responsible for my current career (I have thanked him) and that statement is a non sequitur and I don’t care a fig about that either or whether or not I have spelled “non sequitur” correctly. I looked it up and I think I did but I may be wrong and that is probably because of the “aging process” and we won’t go any further with that today, thank you very much, except to say that I hope y’all are also enjoying your children. Especially the 20-somethings. (Love you Mouse.)

There’s a postcard from Point Reyes on my refrigerator. It looks a lot like the photoooo above except that it was taken from the air so you can see the whole big rocky thing that I was standing on to get the shot in my picture. I went to Point Reyes almost exactly three years ago, when I made a solo trip out to Cali to visit Lizard Breath. I was thinking about it this weekend because Pengo Janetto is out there visiting Lizard Breath right now and they drove up to Point Reyes yesterday. They only saw one whale. When Liz and I went, there were all kinds of them. On the other hand, they apparently got an up close and personal view of an elephant seal lion. I only saw them, well, er sea lions, at the warf (warf, warf, warf). Point Reyes is one of my favorite places. I kept thinking it was like Lake Superior on steroids. Anyway, I put some of my old photos from 2007 on Flickr. They’re not all that great. I have no aspirations toward being any kind of professional photographer but I do think my eye has improved a bit since three years ago. You get what you get and these are from 2007. Click here or on the pic. Oh yeah. If you get as far as the pic of the steps going down to the lighthouse, why yes, I did get vertigo on those! But I did make it all the way down and back up again.</braindump>

    I want to dive into that picture!! I love the beach. I love brunch on the weekend, but then I get up at the late hour of 9ish. (I’m awake earlier, but like to snooze or sometimes read) I have no eye for photos and wish I did!! I want to see the stairs; I’m sure I would have gotten terrible vertigo!

    Elephant seal not sea lion! 🙂

    Point Reyes is pretty much all government land and has been for quite a while. As you drive towards the lighthouse you pass all of these farm sites that are labled State Farm #7, etc. When I was out there last some were still being worked.
