I didn’t sleep well again last night, but it was my own fault for falling asleep on the couch again.
Today was a better day, though. I’m still quite bothered about what happened yesterday, but I sat myself down in front of the record player and played a bunch of good stuff loud enough that people walking by outside probably heard. Those James Last collections are sooo bad but at the same time they’re wonderful. And The Undertones – you can’t go wrong with The Undertones.
I watched another two episodes of The Expanse, which were very good. The guy who plays Amos does a very good job of the “crazy eyes” thing.
My parents got home from their trip yesterday and gave me a call this afternoon; we talked for almost an hour. It was very good to chat with them and find out about how everyone is doing. Mom was glad to have gone but it also made her sad because her brothers aren’t in the best health (particularly the one with ALS). Fortunately, they’re all in good spirits, which counts for a lot. I haven’t seen my folks for a while – I hope a visit is in the works.
Sent out my video texts today but my phone mangled them beyond recognition.
A package arrived for me today full of electronic doodads that I didn’t remember ordering (I did, it was just so long ago I’d forgotten). So I now have even more parts that will let me build some stuff (particularly things with radio modules, flash memory, or any other 3.3V module) easier and with fewer parts. So that was good.
Tonight J and I watched an episode from the third season of The Good Place. Not too bad so far, and I really like that “American” restaurant they visited in Sydney.
Tomorrow I may be going down the street to volunteer at that church again but I won’t find out for sure until tomorrow morning.
That’s about it.
