Sunday Favorite: 77
Today's accompanying picture is a favorite for obvious reasons. Although I usually prefer the furry, sometimes a young smooth buck just scratches the itch.
I don't understand the younger generation. Some seem so unmotivated and unconcerned with being an integral part of society or making something of themselves. Others seem far more accomplished and opinionated than their elders. Both have a sense of entitlement that can be frustrating and insulting.
Today I will be having lunch with a young buck that falls into the latter category. He has a good job, a car, and an overwhelming sense of importance. In my head I call him "snappy black queen" because he seems to think he's superior to most people. He also has moments of "fluffiness" that I find off-putting. And yet...he's told me he has a major crush on me and the attention is flattering. And it is nice to have someone pick up the tab once in a while. Let me set the record straight: I believe I'm being wooed.
Work will be ramping up for me these next two months. My coworker is out on medical leave (some female surgery, I suspect) so I will be picking up her class and - because the Fates are evil - additional training classes that have been requested. Most people would be thrilled to go to Las Vegas for work but I am dreading it. The desert in July?? Just shoot me now.
I recently purchased a new television. Although my old one still works, I decided I needed to get rid of it. I've had it for nearly 20 years I believe and it is one of those large cathode ray televisions with a whopping 19" screen. So I purchased a flat screen Sceptre, 32", with a built-in digital tuner. Since I don't have cable or dish or satellite, this is how I get my television. And quite happy with it thank you! The new TV fits nicely in my entertainment armoire and I've been enjoying the new aspect ratios of favorite movies and network programming. Perhaps in a few years I'll go bigger and put this new one in the bedroom.
We've been enjoying very fine weather here in SoCal; it is forecasted to heat up this coming week, something I'm not looking forward to. As I get older the less I can tolerate the heat. I think this is one of my attractions to the SF Bay area; it seems cooler whenever I'm up there and doesn't get too warm.
That's about all I have to say for now. It's been a somewhat quiet and enjoyable weekend. I hope you are all enjoying it the same.
