I'd left work a little early yesterday to take
We drove the ninety minutes or so from her house down to Lincoln City, OR, visited a couple of beaches, and had a lovely Thai dinner at the Andaman Thai restaurant there. In the rainy, dark evening we drove the ninety minutes or so from Lincoln City back to her house here in Greater Portlandia.
On arrival we discovered I didn't have my satchel with my wallet, reading glasses, etc. A quick phone call confirmed that I'd left the bag in the restaurant.
So, instead of getting on with my evening, including a needful bit of late Day Jobbery, I drove the ninety minutes or so from her house down to Lincoln City, OR, and visited the Andaman Thai restaurant there, whose proprietor graciously stayed late to meet us. In the rainy, dark evening we drove the ninety minutes or so from Lincoln City back to her house here in Greater Portlandia.
As a result, I went to bed much later than planned, much more exhausted than planned, and much less productive than planned. This will have significant ripple effects into today in terms of both Day Jobbery and writing. Among several very annoying things, I'm going to have to pull my second no-writing day in a row, I'm almost sure of it. (Also this is why today's blogging is very limited. I did not have time last night or this morning to prepare.)
I'd like the blame cancer brain, but I'm pretty sure this was garden variety goofiness. But man am I frustrated with myself.
