First it was a question, then it was a mission


"How to be American, how to be a Christian"

Over and over and over this goes through my head. So it seems it is time to make another stab at church. Chance's Sunday-morning lessons are over, so I can have the car again, and I have no excuses not to embark once again on this ultra-scary journey. are the places I think I'll try:
First Unitarian Universalist Church of Austin
All Saint's Episcopal Church
Friends Meeting of Austin

If anyone has advice, other suggestions of places I should check out, etc., I'm all ears.

Countdown to mom


My mom is coming to visit us! She gets here this evening and she'll be here until Tuesday afternoon.

I'm oddly nervous. I guess I feel like I have something to prove about my big, grown-up life, you know? This is the first time she has ever visited me, now that I am far away from home and living my so-called adult life. That and I am nervous about how she'll deal with the dog.

I have a whole list of things to do with her while she is here, but I don't know how much of it is actually going to happen, given the horrible fucking weather we have been having. The radio dude this morning described tomorrow and the weekend as "mid 90s with gross humidity." Great.

My stomach is all in knots. And she's really not a judgemental person at all, so I don't know what my problem is.

Little things


Once upon a time, in the little four-aisle grocery store in the town where I grew up, I had a big thing for U-No bars. Specifically, the mint ones. They were the best thing ever. I loved them. As you saw if you clicked on my link, they have been discontinued for some time now.

I found a substitute. They are pricer and not quite as good, but the Meltaway Mint Seattle Chocolates Truffle Bar is a reasonable substitute.

And all is well.
