Nothing

It didn't rain most of the day so I went to the stores this afternoon, and naturally it began to rain. The stores were zoos, and I didn't get home until after dark. The stores also didn't have several items I wanted to buy, so there'll have to be another trip by Tuesday when those things go back to their usual high prices. But I did get more pie, which will serve both as compensation for a pretty crappy week and as a reward for having survived it. In fact I ate pie instead of dinner tonight. I'll probably eat something dinner-like later, if I don't fall asleep first. Odds that I'll fall asleep first are about two to one, I'd say. It's been a long day.

The rain eased up once I got home from shopping (what would be the point of a downpour if I'm not out there to get caught in it?) Right now it's just a slow, steady drizzle. I'm tempted to open my window so I can listen to it, but it's much too chilly out even though, as autumn rains go here, it's comparatively warm. Sadly, that comparative warmness means there has been less snow in the mountains than I'd hoped for. In fact there's a bit less snow than there was at this time last year, except on the highest peaks, But then it isn't even winter yet, so there's no point in worrying.

Having had pie instead of dinner I didn't get my dinner beer, and I think I'm missing it. I might go have one right now, and see if there's anything on television to keep me awake or to put me to sleep. There's nothing more I can do here.
