With the whining out of the way, I have actually been out and about and doing things. I went to the Geology of the Aleutians lecture at the museum on Friday (Zoya, words fail me to describe how sorry I am about your loss - you are in my prayers), followed by sushi and a walk home with a friend. Goldfish has been sick, to the point of actually missing a day's work, so things at home have been pretty low key. Elaine and Bear are back from vacation - the island seems a bit "off" when they are gone, welcome home ladies.
Work is a bit painful, and very awkward, so the days seem to be dragging a bit for the first time. I skipped the hardware store clearance sale tonight because I remember standing in the middle of some large stores in Boise last month looking around thinking I should buy SOMETHING while I'm here, but not seeing anything I needed. I also thought "Wow, this is almost as good as the internet" - fellow islanders that shop largely on-line will understand . . . . .
I had a thought that if I apparently can't come up with a decent post on my own until I can get out and do some photography, I can devote some time pimping the other island blogs that have sprung up in the last year, so I'll start doing that in the next day or two. I am super stoked that my brother will be here in a couple weeks - can't wait to see you Bro!
