Me 2012

I'm back!

Didja miss me?

OK, granted, I'm a pretty sporadic poster, and I've gone weeks without updating before, so I suppose most of you are more like "you were gone?"

I was gone.

I took copious notes on my trip, which I will eventually transcribe and post. I'm sure you're all looking forward to that.

...

Well, I'm sure at least one of you is looking forward to it, because he told me he was. I don't know about the rest of you. But you are reading this, which is a good sign that you want to hear more from me, so I'll take that much on faith. Right.

Before I get to my vacation, however, I'll cover recent events, like, getting home.

Skating

I did go outside. I even put on my rollerblades inline skates and went over to the parking lot next to the playground and the tennis and basketball courts, and went skating. The parking lot isn't quite flat; it slopes in a gentle, lopsided V towards the entrance. But it's a slight enough slope that I don't have any trouble going up or down it.

I practiced the closest thing to an inline skating trick that I know, assuming you don't count "standing without falling over" and "moving forward", which might look like a good trick to someone who's never put on inline skates and doesn't know how easy they are to manuever in.

Brownies

I made brownies. That may be my big accomplishment for the day. Or failing, given that I don't really need to be eating brownies.

They're pretty good brownies, too. First brownies-from-scratch recipe I've used that I liked. It was a bit of a nuisance finding a recipe that I could make without going shopping. I only had two eggs and no baker's chocolate, which eliminated a surprising number of brownie recipes.

I've sent out a few emails, read up on LJ, and have been browsing the Wall Street Journal. It's been a pretty good day. Except that I'd like to write some fiction today. For some reason, I'm not feeling very motivated, as if my fingers want to type but my muse is still on some ride at Six Flags. Going whee! on the Dragon's Wing, probably. I'm almost tempted to start yet another fragment in Unfinished Tales. That is what UT's for, after all. But I haven't decided yet.

Apparently, though, I don't have anything to say beyond this, even in LJ. Maybe I'll open up one of my fiction stories-in-progress, put my fingers on the keyboard, and see if anything comes out.
