I spent this past weekend, Thursday through Monday, downtown at MarCon – Multiple Alternative Realities Convention. I had a great time hanging out with friends and seeing folks from out of town. Tom Smith’s concert was fun as always. He promised that if he puts out a DVD, his ASL interpreter will most certainly be featured. She is amazing and hilarious. The Zombie Walk was huge this year, but a few bad eggs ruined it for future walks – defacing property with fake blood. The con did well this year – attendance was up and the biggest problem of the weekend was caused by non-con people. It looks like the con will be moving weekends after next year, we will have to see how that rolls out. I ate a lot of dead cow this weekend, hamburgers and even a wonderful flat iron teriyaki steak, as well as other unhealthy odds and ends. I did have some really good grilled asparagus with that steak, too, and bits of salad with my sandwiches. It wasn’t a completely unhealthy weekend, just mostly.

Back on the wagon again and still doing quite well. I’m a little stiff today, but nothing serious. Had more grilled asparagus last night, too. Yum! Cart full of veggies bought today. 🙂 Picnics the next couple Sundays. Summer is arriving with a roar – tornado warning yesterday. A beautiful storm. Rich has surgery on Tuesday and then recovery, we still don’t know how long that’s going to take but they tell us it will be faster than the last time.

All is well, life is good. 🙂

November began with my first of two Zag days. Yes, that’s two zag days in two weeks, but it was the second of five Fleet parties in a row(anf I’m missing the next three). So it began with an Early breakfast the day of the party, which included a hamburger and a piece of carmel apple pie. Lunch was at a local Vegan restaurant and was Divine. All the food was completely vegan. I had bread, salad, spaghetti salad, a potato dish I did not understand, butternut squash pancakes and an apple pastry dessert with apple and butternut squash sorbets, along with fresh squeezed apple juice infused with lavender to drink. Dinner was an odd assortment of foods created by various members of fleet including, but not limited to: sweet bacon crackers, pork and beans, deviled eggs, a cream puff, chocolate chip and bacon cookies, brownies and garlic bread. I drank mostly coke & stuff throughout the night to end my zag.

As for the rest of the week, things went fairly typically. I’m back down to one Enbrel shot every two weeks, for a couple reasons, but most notably, I’m feeling pretty good. My elbow is still it’s usual ornery self, but nothing seems to change that. I see my Doctor today, so we’ll have some things to talk about. Including some three months without health insurance as Rich has accepted a new job doing tech support.

Food of the week: Aladdin’s Garden Pita
