Things got busy. The type of things outside of my control. That happens. In this case it happened with an extreme vengeance. A vengeance that pretty much overwhelmed everything else that should have been going on. My overwhelming need to write was crushed by the tyranny of tiny tasks and endless escalations. I could not manage to clear enough of them off my plate to move forward. Even my stop doing list was not enough to help dig me out of pile of requests. Today for the first time this year the volume of things at work has slowed down enough to allow me a few moments.
My first instinct was to take a nap. My second instinct was to make some waffles. However, I went a different direction all together. I used some of those moments to browse tickets for the Pittsburgh Steelers vs. Denver Broncos game on Sunday January 17, 2016. The prices for tickets to NFL playoff games have gotten fairly pricey. If the Chiefs were playing the Broncos in the playoffs, then it might be worth the price for the experience of attending the game.
I have been looking at buying a new Chromebook of some type for some time. The Asus Flip has been the one that has drawn my attention. That purchase is related to my disappointment with the keyboard options for my Nexus 9 tablet. My primary method of writing involves a keyboard. I have tried voice recognition and using a stylist on my Nexus 9 tablet, but it seems that writing with a keyboard is the method that works best for me.
Within the category of potentially exciting news: I purchased a recipe book (The Taco Cleanse) that includes 75 different vegan taco recipes. The book also reports to be some kind of cleanse. I mostly purchased it to try the recipes. I am hoping they are good and easy to make.
