Been shopping the last few days. Yesterday I forgot I was going to buy pants. Since I only own one pair of pants these days. The pants I bought for my Grandfather’s funeral which I call my “funeral pants.” So I had to go out again today.
Yesterday I had to buy a new bulb for my left headlight. I was hoping replacing it would also magically make my non-functioning left turn-signal operational. It did not. So I’m still driving around only able to turn right, which takes forever to get anywhere. Actually, I do turn left still. But without any warning.
Also, I went to Chapters to find an actually “beginners'” book on electronics since the ones I took out of the lending library have page long algebraic and boolean equasions. I was hoping for a “dummies guide” but they didn’t have one. They did have the Dummies Guide to Nanotechnology which made me laugh. Seriously, can you just casually get into nanotechnology? I did find a book on electronics after all. One that had blazened on the cover: “A minimum of math” in bold lettering. This one is for me, I said.
Today I went out to buy the pants I forgot to buy yesterday. I did so despite being shaped in such a manner that mass produced pants are not shaped in. Nothing makes you feel more dwarfish than being reminded they do not make pants wide and/or short enough to fit properly.
I also put a down-payment on a MicroKorg at Arbutus music (they are out of stock until mid-week). I didn’t really mean to, it just happened.
