Yesterday I stayed home and mostly took the day off. It was very rejuvenating. Spent a lot of not-doing-much time. The only downside is that I burned the roof of my mouth pretty badly on a microwave burrito, and it has made eating difficult. Thankfully the mouth heals quickly.

I took the bus to work today. I discovered a new route that doesn't make me wait 20 minutes at the park-n-ride for the shuttle from work (I can instead take the bus all the way in to Boulder station, then hop the bus to Longmont & get off a hundred feet from work), but the shuttle was right there when the bus pulled in, so I took it anyway.

The new plan is to take the bus (which has air conditioning) on days when it is really hot, because the minivan does not have AC. Plus, I will save money on gas.

We realized at bedtime that Greg was out of sudafed, so I drove to the nearest 24-hour Walgreens, which is all the way out in freakin' Thornton. I curse everyone ever involved with the creation of crystal meth, for making it so much harder to buy effective decongestants. Curse yooooou!

Off topic:

Have you read John Christopher's Tripod series? I have a copy of the first book The White Mountains that I don't need and was wondering if you might want it.

It's a great series about first contact between primitive humans in a post-apocalyptic world and non-humanoid aliens. It's a s/f classic for young people.

I re-collected and re-read it just a few years back, else I would take you up on it.

Yup, good stuff!
