Today marks a bit of a milestone. For I arrived on these fine shores of the United States on the 5th May 1997. Assuming my calculations are correct, that was 25 years ago. 😳 I've lived in the US for a quarter of a century. 😳 Bonkers to think this is the place I've lived the longest in my entire life.
I woke up this morning with Everyday Is Like Sunday by Morrissey stuck in my head. Nothing wrong with that you'd say, and I would initially agree with you. It's just I'm still conflicted about him and still a little bitter the man who wrote the soundtrack to my youth turned out the way he did.
For the first time in forever I listened to the radio in the car. The Doors came on, and I realized I kinda like them. Love Me Two Times, People Are Strange, The End.

About 10 years ago I used to get up early and go running every morning. I stopped after I injured a knee tendon and since then have done precisely nothing. I started again about a month ago albeit indoors on a treadmill. It's slow going but I have my eye on the Phoenix 10K in November.

"Sweet, I finally lost my bag, what a bloody great day".
Those of us who purchased an Apple device at the end of last year got a free year of Apple TV+. It's approaching subscription renew or cancel time. And I find it's a dilemma. Are For All Mankind, The Morning Show, and Ted Lasso worth re-upping Apple TV+ for another year?
A couple weeks back I mentioned our summer heat. It's been particularly warm even for us. And then yesterday we broke the record for July 30th, tipping the mercury at 118°. What is even happening?
They say your Bond is the one you grew up with. And for me that's Roger Moore. Bond movies of that era really are a time capsule. The scripts might not always hold up but oh boy are they still a fun ride.
There's something about the morning, just sitting outside with your coffee. Soon there will be Slack, and email, and video calls.
But for now. Breathe.
I got one for Christmas. Turns out I love fizzy water, and you can pry this thing from my cold dead hands.
