Oh dear. It is Lame Post Friday and I am beyond lame. So is my computer. It is my little acer netbook (or whatever it is; my nice sister gave it to me). The screen keeps flashing white and patterns of black and white. Oh, wait a minute. As soon as I started typing the sentence about what it was doing it stopped. Could it be that easy? No way.
Earlier today I went to two wine tastings at liquor stores in Herkimer, NY (you know, where I live), both of which had a further local connection. Vintage Spirits had brownies by Utica Bread Company. Valley Wine and Liquor featured wines by Villa Verona Vineyard, in nearby Verona, NY. So I was not just sipping free wine; I was supporting local businesses who were supporting other local businesses. By the way, I also purchased wine. I don’t just sip for free.
When I got home, there was a message on my answering machine from my sister, Cheryl. She has a whole day of Mohawk Valley adventures planned. Oh boy! I bet I’ll get a week’s worth of blog posts out of that!
Here’s an interesting thing: when I was typing away, getting the previous two paragraphs without too much problem, my computer was behaving itself. After “adventures planned,” I hit a dry spot. I sat here looking at the screen thinking, “Now what?” Soon enough the screen started its psycho shit.
Do you suppose there is a lesson here?
Sounds like some half-baked philosophy to me. But, hey, it’s Lame Post Friday. Half-baked philosophy is welcome!
And I’m over 200 words. Hope to see you all on Scattered Saturday.
