Thurs. Aug. 29, 2013: Fun Times Going into the Weekend

Thursday, August 29, 2013
Waning Moon
Cloudy and cool

Yesterday morning, my houseguest had a medical issue, so we spent the morning getting it taken care of and then filling perscriptions. That’s the good thing about being a freelancer — I can bend my schedule when things like that happen.

In the afternoon, I get some work done, especially the notes for the Mermaid Ball Meeting. Imp pruned back the forsythia bushes that turned the garage into a grotto. We headed out early, so Imp could meet Triton; and I had a meeting with the lighting/sound designer for the play I’m doing next winter.

We could only stay for an early part of the meeting, then had to head back to Hyannis, because I’d committed us to Green Drinks. The venue was great — an eco boutique and art gallery. I see holiday shopping at those local businesses in my future!

The friend who’s living in Amsterdam was there, so we had a fun reunion, and she knew some of the other people who attended, so it was a good time all around. Then, the three of us went to Craigville Mexican and Pizza, down by the beach, for a quick snack. I’ve driven past it ever since I moved here, but I’ve never eaten there. It’s good! And the staff is really great. So that was fun. And it was nice to get together and catch up in person.

Today, I have to make up for the work that didn’t get done yesterday, and do a grocery run. The weather looks a bit iffy.

Gas prices went up six cents in the past few days. Figures — although they’re using Syria as an excuse, it’s about the holiday weekend. The oil companies will do anything they can to gouge the public, while making tens of billions of dollars in profit every quarter. They should be cutting everyone a break instead, but that would be . . .humane, and we know that, no matter what kind of advertising these creatures buy to pretend they give a damn about community and people, it’s all about their own profit.

  1. Well, we could have guessed about the gas prices. Happens every holiday weekend. I’m about to head to Ontario, where the gas prices make ours look like bargain-basement deals.

  2. I knew when prices rose here that it was because of the holidays. And you’re right. Bog business doesn’t know much about being humane or compassionate if it affects their bottom line. Hope your houseguest is better. Blessings.
