07:58 pm - Three nice things
1. Buying salt against tomorrow's predicted freezing rain, and hoping that possession of same will magically ensure that rain is light and quickly melted, run into J from the quondem Scoop and Bean, sunburnt from a recent mission to Honduran refugee camps. I miss the old cafe and I miss seeing J there on Saturdays, so it's lovely to run into him.

2. Phoned in a renewal request for my painkillers last night; automated service said they'd be ready after 9 am Tuesday. In light of tomorrow's weather forecast, biked up today to ask if maybe they could be ready by this evening? The scrip was already filled, so I'm armed against what will probably be a very painful trek tomorrow. But I have grippers on my boots and am as prepared as one can be.

3. Package in the mail with no return address that I could see. Is from Fearless Leader, back from her Far East marathon- it's a sobering thing when someone twenty odd year your junior talks about 'over-estimating my ability to do 4 countries in 2.5 weeks at my age.' Package contained Japanese eye masks for tired eyes and a little year of the rooster memento, or as she puts it "a little stone for the year of the cock." Not sure how much FL is up on medieval sexual vocabulary and if the pun's deliberate or not, but I shall choose to think it is. (For those not up on med.sex.vocab, 'stones' are what we would call 'balls'.)

Happenstance meetings, properly armed for bad weather and corresponding aches and surprise packages. Wealth indeed! ^_^

Nice. Love and hugs. It's already the middle of the third week. TIME shows no signs of slowing down at all.

Indeed, all nice things! I hope your week is less snow and ice, and more knee friendly! Thanks for the terminology lesson, too, it's fascinating!
