Happy Friday the 13th

I didn't feel too well today, but I managed to get out and buy a six pack of beer at CVS. For the rest of the time I mostly just looked at stuff on the Internets, and did a little bit of reading. I also made a cup of tea, which I usually don't do in warm weather, but I had a package of Nabisco's Lorna Doone shortbread cookies, which I haven't had in ages, and nostalgia dictated that I have a cup of tea with them. The cookies seem smaller than I remember them being when I was a kid, and a bit crunchier, but the flavor is the same. It's nice that some things stay the same.

It's about to be Friday the 13th. Also, there will be a full moon. The two coincide only about once every twenty years, but I don't think it signifies anything. How often the two coincide on a date that reads the same backwards and forwards (9.13.19) I don't know. I'm still not expecting anything out of the ordinary to happen. But then what the hell do I know? It might turn out to be the day the Wiccans get raptured and I'm left behind with all the terribly surprised Christians. At my age there is very little that would astonish me.

One thing that probably won't happen is me going to the bus-accessible store. It's going to be hot, I have been waking up rather late, and I suspect I still won't be feeling very well. There is some chance that I'll venture out to the Goodwill store come evening, though, since I don't like to leave the books unexamined for too long. I always worry that I'll miss something I really want. Longing is a terrible thing. It ought never to have been invented.

    No nap Wednesday evening, because I slept the middle of the day away and got up at half past two. I might actually get to sleep before five o'clock…
