Monday Update

Although we're in mid-October the Los Angeles area is experiencing higher temps...from the mid-70s to upper 80s, even into the 90s in some areas. I'm just waiting for that crash of cold to come in (expected around Halloween).

Friday night I had a date: we got a pizza and watched Trick r Treat and Creatures from the Pink Lagoon. The first is a well done horror movie that intertwines four stories; I liked it a lot. The second was a campy romp shot in black and white - except when the gay zombies attacked then the screen got a pink hue. The movie was silly and fun and had one really beefy stud who was always taking his shirt off.

There's more drama at work. At the beginning of the year I was moved out of an office into a cubicle to help make room for a higher-level officer. This week two others will be moved out of offices into cubicles to make room for a new hired and to accommodate others. Unfortunately, I too will be moved again but just one cubicle over. It's an opposite cubicle so it'll take some getting used to the flip-flopped environment. This moving about is supposedly to be completed by the end of this week. We'll see.

In a couple of weeks I will travel to the Bay area for work. In fact, I'll be flying up Hallowe'en day. No plans for the evening yet although I've been warned off the Castro. So if I don't hit SoMa it may be a quiet evening in the hotel.

I believe I'm recovered from my biopsy. I should get the results at my next doctor appointment, scheduled for late November. In the meantime, I need to concentrate on exercising more and eating less, two things I'm not very good at.

That's about all I have. I hope everyone had an enjoyable weekend.

I'm glad you had a good weekend and a good date. Did you make it to first base?

May I make a food suggestion? Honey Crisp apples are back in the stores now finally. They only last a few months, and once they're gone we'll have to wait until next October for another crop.

If you haven't ever had a Honey Crisp, do yourself a favor and get one today. They are expensive but soooo worth it. Easily the best apple on Earth. I don't know who owns the patent on Honey Crisp, but whoever does is sitting on a gold mine. I hope they're planting trees as fast as they can.

Eat 2-4 of the apples every day between meals to keep your belly full so you'll eat less at your main meals. Yes, it works.

I'm with you on the eating part

I'm with you too about eating and exercising. Ugh!
I once lost my office to someone and was moved to a cubicle. I felt like shit.
I so envy you going to San Francisco.
