Today was relatively uneventful, yet I still feel compelled to update, because Diaryland is what gives my life meaning.
Today I went to a huge outdoor arboretum. Yes, manly me. I walked around in beautiful nature, and I didn’t even complain. One of my employee’s kids is entering a photography competition, and since I have formal photography training and some experience, they asked for my help. So I tagged along and showed EK (employee’s kid) how to use the camera to achieve the correct lighting, depth-of-field, and how to compose the image. Much of the time we wandered around I was doing the potty dance, because I downed a super-size Coke right before we got there. Every time I was ready to jump behind a tree, people would walk around the bend and I’d have to scuttle the mission.
So after about 2 hours of painful thigh-squeezed walking, we finally arrived back at the visitors center which came complete with disgusting filth-covered bathrooms.
During the walk, I managed to get bitten by approximately 200 bugs, including on my face and forehead. I looked like I had a bad case of the measles. I finally understand why I spend so much time killing bugs at my house. The arboretum is only about 5 miles from my house. I think the bugs have all heard of my place… “yeah, the light green house that smells like pizza.” Actually, I had no idea that the arboretum even existed, and it’s right around the corner. That’s how much I get out of the house. Pathetic.
Anyway, after that, I came home and did my daily mowing. Well, not really daily… but bi-weekly. And the stinking cable company sent me a bill for 172$. Can you believe that? Don’t even get me started on regulated utilities. BLEH!
That’s it for tonight. Hopefully I’ll have something more exciting for you tomorrow.
