It has been raining off and on all day. With the wind, it's been torrential at times. A perfect day to stay at home in bed...too bad it was a work day. And what a work day...no real client drama - but this: I learned that on Sunday, March 12th, I am to attend a "mandatory rally" for my work. Now, I don't know about you, but I've never imagined the words mandatory and rally being linked in such a way. Needless to say, I'm not going to be in a terribly rallying mood on a Sunday.
But the day turned up. I went to meet Scout this evening. She is the Australian sheep dog that lives in El Cerrito with her human. We got along swimmingly, and she agreed that I could stay with her while her human is away next weekend. I'm thrilled. I love these dogs - so affectionate, energetic and just cute as a button.
But right now, I'm still at the Cottage (HippyChick and BeeDragon's house). The kitties have all been hybernating indoors out of the rain - although Kito was a bit damp this a.m. Of all the things I could be watching (because they have cable), I am watching Nova on PBS. I'm a sucker for a good investigative documentary about mummies, I am.
I started reading an interesting book today: The Grizzly Maze. It's a book about Timothy Treadwell - the man immortalized by Werner Herzog in Grizzly Man. I've been really interested in seeing the movie, but just have not gotten to it. So I picked up this book instead. I'm glad I'm reading this first because, if the introduction is to be believed, Herzog slanted his presentation of Treadwell considerably. I'll be interested to see how they compare.
I've noticed lately that my readership (or at least those who comment) has dropped off significantly. It's made me think a bit about what I want this blog to be for me. I'm still not sure. I don't want to force my writing here in any way, or I would stop. But I also like the attention when I'm less random and giving me day to day. I guess I'll just continue to mull this over for a bit.
