Well, Anyway  
Errands today. I now once again have a working vacuum cleaner (well, presuming it works when I take it out of the box). I also found another one of those rocking chair things. Score! Considering they were on clearance when I got the other one from Target (and it was the last one), I never thought I would, but I found some more when I was at a different Target today.

Among other things, I also got a pair of hiking pants (the kind with removable legs, perfect for fourteeners and the like -- any hike involving wildly changable conditions) to replace my old pair that's mostly worn out. Of course, they were a bit too small, but beyond putting faith in my ability to lose weight this summer, I suppose I probably won't be doing any fourteeners unless I succeed in that anyway... I'm carrying too much weight to make a fourteener anything other than abjectly painful right now. My knees would, say, rip one of my arms off and beat me over the head with it if I were to try.

Of course, before I was done shopping, I ended up getting distracted by a friend and happy hour and such things. I had too much fun, of course (free beer! On tap! It was a special occasion at the Rock Bottom), but I always feel a bit sad and/or lonely after such things. Because, well, we always have so much fun, but I hardly ever see her. I suppose I know my fair share of people in Colorado, but, well, I don't have as much fun with most of them -- my favorite people in the whole world, of course, remain my old college buddies, but it's very seldom that I see any of them. On the good side, I'll be back in Houston at the end of June, and I imagine we'll have hella fun then. Woo!

Anyway... I suppose I should get back to concentrating on work things. It's making me frustrated and crazy... But would you believe a good frustrated and crazy? Well, maybe.

Maybe, possibly. I'll call this afternoon when I know more.

What's a fourteener? Oh, okay, I'm embarrassed to be so lazy... checking Google... aha, mountain over 14,000 feet. Wow, I'd love to be at the top of one o'thems!

It's hard to make as good friends after college as in college...

Well, there are the two you can drive to the top of, if you're a total wuss.

On the rest, though, you've got to leg it. Or maybe jump out of plane or something.
