Macbeth the Usurper

That Nancy Girl

I finally met up with Nancy in a deli in Silver Spring. This packed little deli was serving to a packed brunch crowd. All I can say is, "wow" for a Sunday morning. Do that many people really do brunch?

Nancy was very pleasant in real life. Call her pretty in an average way. She had that plainish round Chinese face to her, but her personality shines through. Turns out that the birthday party that she had last week was her 40th! She had told me a little white lie when she said she was 36. Hmmm.

I had a single Belgian waffle -- almost too much for me. She had herself an omlette made with egg-beaters. She also picked up the tab, as she felt responsible for bailing last week.

As people go, she struck me as a genuine sweetie. She is fine for the friend roster. If Jen wasn't around, I might be a little more tempted as she is positive company. As it stands, I think we'll do lunch every once in a while by setting a date, then constantly get rescheduled for two or three more weeks.

The Man jabbed and poked at my arms today. They wanted to see if the HepB vaccine took effect. I got jabbed in both arms and both times, the nurse was unable to find the vein. Weird. I have veins like freight trains. It's rare that they get missed, especially by a competant nurse.

All the carpet and padding is up. I have a pile of carpeting, padding, and other crud that must go to the dump, I must also consider the sub-flooring. Do I really want to yank all that up? Better to let sleeping dragons lie.

I think the water may have come from a weird way that the water drained during the rains after the blizzard. Somehow, it made it into the house and to the basement. Since then, I haven't spotted any new water.

My next try at rice pudding is a mild success. For once, I got the right texture to it. Now I need to work on flavoring. I also needed to use more rice.

Finished the next chapter of homework. I remain on target for the end of the semester.

I've been typing in the novel apace again. I've also been de-localizing it. I'm yanking it out of the Grayhawk world and making it something more my own. With all these new names, I'm having trouble keeping track of stuff. Phew! Too much detail.
