Dept. of Saturday

Finally, Some Relaxation

I'm sitting on the laundromat, washing the coverlet that one of the cats puked on (which is too large for our home washer), trying to dry off - it's been pouring cold rain much of the day - and recovering, not only from my earlier trip to Costco,but from two weeks of nonstop activity. 

I slept past noon today, which I apparently needed to do. Last night I went to a gathering of former (and current, of course) Pioneer people. It was a good evening; I ran into a woman who'd been an ad rep back in the first years I'd been with the company,back in 1983-84. We were both hired by Rocky, and we realized we probably went back further (farther? I can't remember) than anyone else there. I'd always liked her, and it turned out she'd always liked me; something that's always good to learn. 

I had to tell her about Rocky and Nick, while she had to let me know about the recent death of another old original, Lou Rubino, who'd managed our back shop. Getting old rather mandates those jobs, but it's always sad. I was very touched when she said she'd always thought of Nick and I as a team - perceptive woman - and that she'd respected what she called our passionate dedication to journalistic ethics. We didn't think "ad side" noticed. Silly us.

As I sit here, BB is going over the MCU/who crossover I just finished as a delayed fandom_stocking story. It topped 4,000 words because I can't do short, apparently. 

And tonight is steak, bubbly, BB, and more relaxation. 

I am grateful.

My first task, after drying the coverlet, is a long hot shower, then it's steak and bubbly. And I hope your evening is better than the rest of your Saturday!

Ahhh, sounds perfect!

It was a better evening. But I will certainly be glad when the day is complete, you know? I'm rather wiped out, so I might be hitting the hay rather soon...get some rest. And enjoy your well-earned evening, sweetie!

Sounds good. I picked up steaks for tomorrow but I think maybe a nice red would work.

Oh, definitely a nice red would work. My love of bubbly (in this case an asti spumante) means I will occasionally break the red/white rules, but red ultimately goes better with meat. I hope your Sunday is going really well, and that you enjoy the steaks.

I have a bit more to do on Sunday; still, I slept in again, and didn't feel bad about it. Heh.

Heh ... I just hope they enjoy the story, period.
