Drinking is the best way to travel.

Well, as if to tempt me back, my internet is not stalling out at the moment. But I am only getting barebones LJ pages. One result: I can only post this entry public.

Yesterday, I walked downtown. Out of breath. Realised I had forgotten my wallet. Had to call bus company from library. Decided to walk home and have a new bus waiting for me there. Walked home. Was really exhausted. Got wallet, and took bus to F&F for nuts, and to look at advertised pair of Skechers, which I easilly decided not to buy. Then - more walking! This time to Aldi's.

At Aldi's, there was a cute little mousy faced female with sad bags under her eyes. We noticed each other, and so I'll go back some other Friday. Walked to big supermarket for intended sunflower seeds, and there were almost none there. Thank goodness I bought the nuts. Tallish girl there seemed to like me. But I am always too strained to chat much. Often, e.g., when I walk into Papa Murphy's, (home of Pizza Girl), my voice is breathy and high because of all the walking, and it does me no good.

Caught bus home. Note that when I had been w/o wallet, I feared I had tossed it into a bag which I subsequently threw into a dumpster - so yay that never happened.

Weeks or months ago, I strained my left bicep, and incurred pain, because CFS means lots of lactic acid. This sort of thing makes my illness a lot worse, believe it or not. Now that it is entirely healed, it is actually bigger than my right bicep. I am right-handed!

I am now in the beginnings of a four-CD lecture series on the "Barbarians of the Steppes." My main interests: the Scythians, Sarmations and Tocharians, The professor is OK but keeps making these verbal gaffs because he has too many thoughts in his head at the same time, and it is both annoying and delightful to watch.

BTW - It is offensive that these creative nomads are called, "barbarians,' by this professor. I don't like the use of the word denoting anyone other than residents of the Barbary coast, especially those marauders of Roman times. And it is unfair to judge the Steppe Indo-Europeans, (aka, Aryans), only on their warfare, when it was their technologies which allowed their warfare and growth, greatly influencing the rest of the world. Today, 75% of the world's population speaks some derivation of Indo-European language.

I had a feeling the Supremes would allow Trump to use military money for the wall. Dems don't seem to realise that the president is almost solely in charge of both the military and immigration management. Not saying I agree or disagree, it's just a reality - like the electoral college.
