my pocket used my cell phone to set up a mystery appointment for me.

I don't know how to do that on purpose.

It was a Saturday, more or less as normal. Got up, fed the cat, started the laundry, ate breakfast, watered the plants, read the intarwebs, ..., went shopping.

Unusual shopping things included "sweets" for the coffee hour at church tomorrow, to the tune of about $30 from the Whole Foods bakery (actually Bread and Circus, according to the label, but I think they acquired, wholly (foods) owned subsidiary, etc. And a bottle of Q-10, which the doc recommends for heart health. Pricey, but I should be set for a couple more months. So a bit of sticker shock, plus the fact that my bottles of whisk[e]y, white, and red wine all ran out (or nearly so) and needed replacing.

The thing about Saturdays is I don't hafta pretend to work, and don't feel bad if nothing of note is accomplished. Win!

So I had enough excess energy to make my mother's cashew casserole recipe tonight, which was tasty. Half a habaƱero is a bit much for three or four servings. So even though I brought the Tobasco sauce bottle to the table, I didn't use it. And leftovers for a few more days later this week. \o/

And, uh, nap. That's a win.

It's been nice this winter; today it was 45-ish and sunny. So I spent some quality time outdoors with my bathroom waste basket, picking up the styrofoam packing peanuts that drifted in a few weeks ago when it was windy one trash day.

I got a copy of the latest Girlyman album, Supernova, and I like. If you're into close harmonies, get it. It's lots of fun. As you'd expect, the astrophysics leaves a bit to be desired, but it's just the title track. and the music is pretty wonderful.

Also just out is a new Leonard Cohen album. The person who linked me to the advance listen site nailed it: she said his voice has aged well, like old whiskey. He's careful to do with it only what it can do. And, as always, he's a whiz at putting words together and setting them to music.

Also forthcoming, though just in the collecting information stage, is a revision of Kate Bornstein's excellent My Gender Workbook. If you'd like to contribute, check out #MNGW on twitter (that's My New Gender Workbook).
