Daily Grind

Each day at work, I eat lunch. Or I snack, one of the two. Sometimes both. We have two break rooms at work: the general break room, and the quiet break room. Although the latter is often cooler in temperature and vacant, it’s where I prefer to eat my food and mull over plot details of my short stories or mentally revise my screenplay. This wouldn’t be particularly noteworthy if not for a curious poster on the wall.

September is here again, and here I am again at Central Washington University in Ellensburg. I gave the blog a break for the summer, but now that I’m back in school (and eating gross quantities of food), I’ve decided to pick it up again.

At least in terms of “serious thoughts,” the likes of which I suspect most people suspect I do not have. That’s what I call doubly suspicious suspicion. The fact that Ellensburg is a temporary residence was never an issue. The fact that living with my family is a temporary

Well, it’s that time of year. We’ve packed our bags, thrown on some shorts, and piled into the family ’95 Ford Aerostar van, heading for the coast. It’s been four years since we last visited Cannon Beach, Oregon. I’ve got mixed feelings about going back, but overall I’m thrilled to be on vacation.
