I’m a tad bit rusty cooking food but so far, no blunders. Made sausage balls for lunch yesterday. It’s hard to mess that up though, considering it only has 3 ingredients. That’s more of a fall or winter holiday food but meh, I wanted to make it. For yesterday’s dinner, I did a pan grilled chicken with Italian oven fries. It was Memorial Day-ish in nature. Also got to have some ice-cold watermelon. Now that was delicious!
Did you see the crowds at the beaches and parks yesterday? Holy crap! Lots of people, no social distancing, and no masks. Folks are clearly in the fuck it stage if I ever saw it. They better not screw it up for the rest of us trying to be good. People were doing fireworks last night. I found that to be a little odd, since Memorial Day isn’t a celebration but a day of remembrance. I guess folks are looking for any reason to party these days.
Caught the first episode of this season’s Titan games last night. I’m glad to see they refreshed the course this year and made it harder. My wife and I enjoyed it. I can’t say it’s one of those shows that I’ll make sure to watch every week but if it’s on and I don’t have things to do, I’ll tune in. There’s very few shows these days I make sure to see. TV doesn’t have the same joy as it used to.
I realize I haven’t said anything about my writing lately. I wrote the first chapter of an old idea of mine and realized that I had no idea where it’s supposed to go. That’s because I don’t know what the story is about yet. I know it’s a novel length urban fantasy dealing with vampires and ghosts but beyond that, the crystal ball is hazy. I need to flesh the story out but its harder than I remember. Feels like I’m having to learn how to ride a bike all over again. Things are percolating and I’m asking questions. This part takes time and I can’t rush the process. Eventually I’ll have to turn all my notes into an outline but I’m not there yet. Brainstorming is a weird process. Slowly but surely, it’ll come together.
I guess I’m just rusty all around!
