Watching the returns roll in…

I am currently staying up late for my favorite activity: watching election returns in well documented races. Right now, it is in Alabama, in the contest for the Senator to replace Sessions.

Anyone else do this at all? I know plenty do, I’m just fishing for your recollections of memorable past counts. I’ll start with mine:

There is a song, “Sitting on the Dock” that has the line about “watching the ships roll in”. I always think of that when watching the returns “roll in”.

The drudgery of creativity…

…is putting it down in permanent form. I love to imagine things, but to then write them down, is hard.

Some of it I know is the loss of fidelity that comes with moving from the mind outward, but most of it is just the annoyance that it takes time.

This is also why my posts here are scarcer than they should be.

Broad band: the final frontier

After an abundance of waiting, and legally mooching WiFi off by neighbors, the cable company here has connected service to my new apartment. I have a wire line high speed Internet connection! This is the last of the utilities I needed hooked up.

On a side note, I have completely vacated my old apartment now.

Sadly my productivity on side projects that I had been working on is likely to decline now. I am still hopeful I can finish a big one for a friend before I completely lose interest.

For now, I have to go and tell my neighbor to change their WiFi password to something new, since I am done using it.
