Sufficient unto each day is the evil thereof

Some not-so-good things, in no particular order:

1. Skidding into the Union Street traffic island in the rain and doing mumblehundredworth of damage to one’s very great friend’s car while he is in darkest Africa saving the world via welding

2. Getting to November 25 with less than 25,000 words of NaNoWriMo under one’s belt

3. Having the sole of one’s current favourite shoes start to peel off

Some mighty nice things, in no particular order:

1. The pleasing facial expression adopted by one’s current favourite shoes as their sole starts to peel off (sort of a cross between Audrey II and a greenlipped mussel)

2. Write or Die, srsly. One can do 1,000 words in twenty minutes

3. Having a boy person friend who allows one to perform minor surgery on him with tweezers

4. Reading one’s blog stats. A few weeks ago the only search terms were related to Angel and Buffy, but recently they have included searches for “steampunk”, “Claire Danes”, and my personal favourite, “streep teas preteen video”

5. Finishing one’s final Pilates certification written exams (total time, about 11 hours)


1. Life, on balance, is pretty much peachy

    Ooooh dear. Did the AA man have to come and rescue you?

    Not rescue, but he popped by. I am now a member (again). They do not deal with bingles, however, so he only had a chat and left me to it.

    They do not deal with bingles? What then is the good of them? Do they deign to pull you out of a smouldering Jeep if it shows signs of asploding? Or do they just lean in the window and give you an encouraging wink before tootling on their way? People these days.

  4. bettyscandretti says:

    They deal only, it seems, with breakdowns. If the car had asploded due to a manufacturing defect or something, they would have been in like a shot. Being hit by a train or swerving into a tree falls right outside of their purview. Such is life.
