I Want to be Underwhelmed, Autumn 2020

I like saying "autumn" more than "fall."

I had two slices of leftover pizza for breakfast, pepperoni and mushroom. I heated it in the oven.

In a stroke of luck yesterday I was in the cleaning supply aisle just as they were re-stocking the store brand clorox disinfecting wipes.

I took two cannisters. The stock guy said "Limit one per customer." I nodded and kept moving.

I went through self check out and no alarms or bells went off when I scanned my two cannisters of wipes.

I just strolled out of the store without incident.

Oh, so you can look forward to being whelmed a year from now.

Turning 60 wasn't so bad, really. The problem with it is that it's not as though you turn 60 and then stop. Those birthdays just keep on coming, at increasing speed, and suddenly you can see 70 on the horizon. It's very whelming.

Tagliatelle alla bolognese is better, r46, or pappardelle, but if it's already left over, the spaghetti version is fine.

The Bolognese, however, take a hard line, contending that there is no such thing as spaghetti bolognese.

I opted for the larger Major Dickason's Blend (now 18 oz., btw). It was on sale for a dollar more than the 10.5 oz. size, so I bought two bags. I'm much happier now that I don't grind the beans. Much less mess. Tastes the same IMO.

My mother has arranged a photoshoot for her best friend as a birthday present for her 60th anniversary. The affair is taking place two apartments away from mine. I am whelmed. They're both massive cunts and I suspect that eventually they're going to intrude on me, demanding that I have my portrait taken too while the photographer is still there. Probably with a cat in my arms. I do not want this to happen.

When I was a child, I read the Maggie and Jiggs comic strip ("Bringing Up Father") in our local paper. Jiggs was periodically afflicted with gout, which was depicted by showing his elevated foot wrapped in a big bandage. It would be many years before I knew what gout actually was.

Drove out to a suburban supermarket in the driving rain late last night to buy inks for my printer, they didn't have any so I bought a new one. Spent most the morning setting it up....connecting, registering...on and on it went. Not sure on the scanner. The colouring (I tried a few old photos) turns out very gray - which makes sense for this era. Everyone loves gray these days.

Bagel w smoked salmon for lunch. The salmon although expensive wasn't very good. I'm giving up on buying smoked salmon. It's always shite these days.

I have my issues with the "Goodwill" store that excepts donations but I'll go through it and see if they're accepting good re-usable sewing implements. Should the old thread be thrown out though? I have no idea what to do with the old buttons and needles, too.

Actually as I was typing those words , I'm wavering. Maybe I should hang on to it.

I have one piece of bread, chicken salad, deli turkey and sliced cheddar cheese. I am thinking of making an open faced sandwich with the cheddar melted on top. Can’t decide on chicken salad or turkey. I suppose I could cut the piece of bread in two and have half of each. It’s a pretty small slice of bread though.
