Coffee at 4 today. At the Bison again.

Paul and Verena are back from their vacation in Uruguay and looking browner. Laura is looking rounder as a young beautiful pregnant woman tends to look.

The coffee is as good as ever.

Last week while I was out grocery shopping, I almost literally ran into a friend who works with Leo. She and I arranged to get together for coffee today and brought along two other of her co-workers and friends. She seems to be fascinated by the fact that I am planning to go back to school to get my MDiv. Maybe I would be too if I met someone doing this but it does not seem so “romantic” or “fascinating” when I am in the thick of it and it is mostly a steady keep at it, keep refreshing the memory bunch of hard work.

The women I met today are friends first of all because I met them through Leo. They work with him – his harem – or so they call themselves. Yeah and it all has to do with sex. They run the sexually transmitted diseases clinic, HIV programs, Hep C clinics and needle exchange programs. We’ve mostly been to their places for meals and to sit around and talk. One is a bit of a gourmet cook and I am most certainly not.

She also snowshoes and so do I. A very little bit. And I am so badly out of shape that her idea of getting together on a regular basis to snowshoe puts fear into my little pitter pattering heart. I mean, my heart has been known to do the pitter patter flippy floppy thing. I hope she is up on her CPR. Maybe I should carry a defibrillator with me. Or maybe I should just work at getting into shape.

Maybe I should be up there on the exercise bike rather than here at the computer. Maybe I will.

Losing it I think.

If I were an angry an impulsive person, I would take that stupid phone that is set on alarm and that I can’t figure out how to turn off and smash it on my hard ceramic tile floor.

It is not my phone.  This is not the first time the problem has occurred.  The problem has even been discussed!

Patience and self-control where are you?

This has not been a good week for my good qualities to shine. 

But the phone still exists so I have some self control left.  I think.  Unless it rings one more time.
