I'm doing my laundry! What are you up to today?

I'd like to write a post that is deeply intellectual, and challenges all MyLotters. But, alas, I am having one of those mundane days where I just get stuff done. I updated me Resume/VITA this morning, as I'm thinking of getting back into research. There was a sad moment: one of my most "powerful" references, Dr. Daphne Bugental, died earlier this year. She was my graduate advisor at UCSB. It would fill me with sadness to "delete" her from my "References" section. But I suppose I must. She was a wonderful person and a major influence in my life. I just put my laundry in. I sprayed all collars with Dollar Tree Miracle Cleaner. It really works. Now, I may head to Stevie Coyle's elite guitar store and ask how much he'd sell my friend's Collings D-1 guitar for. My friend has decided to "thin the herd." Enough from me. What are you up to on this sunny Wednesday? Tomorrow, I work with the littlies.

Don't make a deeply intellectual post for I may not understand.

I might not either. But I'd certainly pretend to.

@Alexandoy I have been pretending to be smart for many years. It gets tiresome.

I think I will get a Subway sandwich this evening. I need some "ruffage." My colon is my friend.

I call that "passing out." I don't want to acknowledge that I occasionally (accidentally) take naps.

You should keep a copy of the old resume with your advisor's information. If for nothing else, for sentimental reasons.

Good point. I have not "deleted" her yet. I may just leave her on there, for sentimental reasons. She knew me well.

@thehorse Laundry can be quite a philosophically challenging topic - am I removing dirt from my shirt or my shirt from the dirt? Do I sub-consciously see washing clothes as representative of washing all harmful influences from my life? It's a minefield out there. I'd just leave the laundry for another day.

I tend to do that. I like to wear the same t-shirt or the same shorts for days on end. Everything I've eaten, sweated out, and otherwise secreted, becomes a part of who I am. If I am accepted, in spite of (or because of) my aromatic statement, then I know that I am truly loved. Thank you for making my laundry day more interesting.

My mom was nice enough to do my laundry for me since I have been busy working on my webcomic and online. That is always my day to day.

What is your webcomic about?

@TheHorse This week my characters are going to their homecoming dance! In general my webcomic is the lives of the characters of the graphic novel I am making. Just teenagers doing teenagery things. It is so wholesome.

@DesirousDreamer But stories need tension and resolution. What kinds of "tensions" do you "build up"?

It's sunny here too and we head to Perth later to attend a concert tonight. We were given free tickets to see a guy who did a house concert here a year or two ago. In a previous life, he was a Golden Gloves winner in Canada.

Are Golden Gloves given to those who have a magic touch in the world of gardening?
