Some monday things

1) My voice is gone.

2) It is alarming how not-weird it feels living and working in this place for a while. I’m not sure why that is – I think because it’s a blend of so many other places I’ve lived. But I was expecting it to feel more ‘other’ than it does.

3) It is time for bed. I am alarmed that I have made it past 10pm tonight. That is insanely late for me at the moment. ROCK AND ROLL.

4) Several times today I had to walk across a large brige with subway trains rumbling across it. Having watched rats running along subway tracks all last week, walking underneath tracks does cause fleeting thoughts that maybe, just maybe, there will be rats that were running along those tracks that will have been thrown loose and sent flying through the air by the passing train, bound to land on my head, any second.

5) Today I renewed my dedication to one day writing a choose your own adventure game. Or book. I wanted to when I was 7, now I actually might have a professional excuse to do it. I will. Yes I will.

  1. Maybe your voice went off to find a sofa? I hugged mine last night (sofa not voice) upon your recommendation. It thanks you.

    I remember walking the footbridge that abuts the Tube line bridge from Putney Bridge. I never thought of rats. I usually had the dog with me.

  2. Yes! Do it! I loved choose your own adventure books! I want one!

  3. Brooklyn? When did you move to Brooklyn? My, you sure get around.
    And yes, look out for the flying rats. Or if they don’t get off the track fast enough then flying rat pieces.

  4. I’m glad Brooklyn is feeling comfortable to you.
    Have you found the playgrounds down by Pier 6? I don’t live up near the Heights, but happened upon the area with my husband. The play areas are wonderful!

  5. I enjoy these day to day posts, but then, I’m nosy. But then, I do so love to read about other places, and things like snow and sofas [or lack of], and babies. Oh boy, I’m nosy. It’s why we read blogs, isn’t it?

  6. My comments are gone. Wonder if they ran off with your voice. :-)

    Am I doing something wrong or offensive that causes them to disappear?

  7. Ellie – not by my hand, I swear it! Sorry to hear that – and sorry to take so long before I got to come back and see this comment. It was really, really not a purposeful slight. Let me know if it happens again!

I still post. Occasionally. Honest, I do.
