Just woke up from a dream about my sister. I was holding her and we all sang Happy Birthday. I hugged her and thought that I wasn't going to see her again for a while.

My sister passed away 20 years ago. I'm sitting here crying because I miss her and smiling because I got to hug her again.

If any of my toot friends are also celebrating, !

complaining about the office 

I get that you love your dog and want to bring it to the office everyday, but:
a) I don't like dogs and it freaks me out
and b) it spends half the morning tied to your desk and whining while you are away in meetings. We're 20 feet apart and I still have to listen!


Today's exercise tally: aikido, 1 hour. Bicycling, 1 hour. Heavy air conditioner carried from the basement to the second floor: 1. Heavy table carried from the house to the trash: 1.

Time for a nap.

I have been on this business trip for too long now and my mind is slowly leaking out of my ears and I still have a day of meetings left.

I'd ask you all to send me some spare sanity but it's too late for me, save yourselves.

Currently on Day 3 of my Europe Jetlag Cycle. Day 1 I have just arrived, am exhausted, and sleep 12 hours (usually 9 pm to 9 am). Day 2 I am rested and have insomnia. And Day 3 I sleep well but wake up before 6 local time.

The cycle ends the day before I go home, and then I have another week re-adjusting.

Hooray for hotels that give you a room when you arrive at 9am and just want them to hold your suitcase. Time for a nap.

At the airport, about to fly to Germany. Soon I will be tooting from a more easterly time zone! That's probably the only noticable difference.

In further aikido news, my sensei told me to start wearing a hakama. Last month I would have told you the people with hakama are the senior students, but I still don't feel very senior...

Back to morning , hooray.

Ow ow ow my shoulders are sore.

Eid Mubarak to anyone else celebrating today!

Ramadan mubarak to everyone joining me in fasting today!

I am going to have to change my schedule next week when Ramadan starts and I am fasting, so it was good to practice with the morning crew today.

Despite high levels of "I don't wanna", I did go to aikido this morning, it was a good class, and I am happy I went. Also, I didn't stain anyone purple this time!

Walked into the kitchen at work, spot two boxes of leftover donuts.... Oooh!

Sadly they were already empty. 😢

@xgess What do I need to do to get added to Keybase? It's a single-user mastodon instance that @mastohost runs for me (among the many instances they run for other users).

Just copied both "Books and Bone" and "WITCHES TOWN" to my kindle. Hooray to have lots to read from my masto friends @vicorva and @signalstation !
