I forgot I was doing a post a day, or 30 posts in November, or whatever I’m doing here.

We had a couple of days of high winds this week. It didn’t seem to cause as much damage as was feared, fortunately. Wind complicates everything and makes me uneasy at an existential level. I’m glad to say that it’s a lot calmer now, and it’s expected to be clear for a few days.

I finished my open enrollment for company-sponsored benefits this week. It’s one of those painful exercises that we do here in the one advanced country without a national health program. The adjustments I made lowered my paycheck deductions by about $1.50. To me, that seems like quite an achievement; one just expects it’ll go up every year.

Tonight, I’m at The Dovetail coffeehouse waiting for the show to start… three singer/songwriters, Mark Anthony, Anna Bitzinger, and Mike Galbraith, are performing. It should be a fine night. I really like Mike’s songs and his gritty but gentle delivery. Check out his Bandcamp page.

About songdogmi

I'm a longhaired almost-hippie stuck in the inner suburbs of a major rust-belt metropolis who's thoughtful, creative, and kind of geeky. In exchange for a paycheck I run around in a cubicle maze most days. When I escape, I play music, hang out in coffee houses, dink around on the computer, take naps, and think I should be off in the woods somewhere. Every once in a while I get in my car and drive far, far away, though I've always come back so far.
