I took two days off from online life this week. Two days in a row in fact. I actually enjoyed the it me off and had to force myself ot get back online. What was interesting is I really didn't miss anything online when I was not logging on. Maybe I just do not have an addictive personality since some people seem to have this painful need to be online? Whatever the case, I am now really have to force myself to be online tonight and finish up with answering emails and all.
I ended up going to Orlando's with my mum and her friends yesterday for lunch. Orlando's is the restaurant at Spokane Community College run by the culinary arts majors so that they can learn all aspects of the restaurant/cooking business. This means the food is hit-or-miss and upscale to boot. i wasn't overly impressed by the food but I was not paying for the lunch so all is cool. I did love the bakery attached to the restaurant because it is 3 term students who do the baking so they are advanced in what they are doing. I had a yummy cherry pastry from there.
I took a break from editing photos the last two days as I am almost done with the first edit and it is easier after that...I just pick a few for the project and focus on them. I will finish up the editing tomorrow and then, probably, post one or two here. I was able to pitch my project to one of my mum's friends who has kids who may want to do this. I am hoping that pans out. We shall see.
Today, I got Stand and Deliver: The Autobiography by Adam Ant in the mail from my friend Maz in the UK! I mentioned how much I wanted to read it here at LJ. It is really interesting so far and even more intreesting since a lot of the punk rock musicians who were born in the 1950s has really poor upbringing. As in living in slummy buildings and having very poor families. Adam Ant is the of that beginning, as well as John Lydon who also wrote a book about his life called Rotten: No Irish, No Blacks, No Dogs that I purchased and read many years ago. I will continue to read Adam Ant's autobiography because I am sure it will get even more interesting as it moves out of his childhood and starts to address his being bipolar.
The weather has finally started getting warmer and I was able to wear my new sandals yesterday! I hope it continues to get warmer because we have had winter desperately clinging to Spokane for way too long. *crosses fingers*
And with that I am off to finish up online and get back to reading.
