Letter from the Editor.
If I were TikTok, I would deem October "TikToktober." That is a free marketing idea for TikTok, a global force who probably doesn't need my help. But everyone needs my help just a little.
This is from the same mind that gave my arch support company "Arch Madness" and hope we wouldn't get sued. So far, so good.
So many things have been going on for me! And a lot of it got started when I purchased a $15 hydrangea from someone's front lawn in Multnomah Village. I actually paid $20 and the guy didn't give me change and I didn't ask for it. I'm really bad with money but also $15 seems really cheap.
I've been working on some new projects. Some are hinted at on my redesigned website. Ooh la la! The website itself was a project I've been working on. I thought I was making changes to a backup website when I actually just started changing my real one. So I had to really get going on it. It isn't finished but it is definitely new.
A project I am not working on but have been tracking closely is the new Community movie. That TV show really is making a movie after like eight years of not being a TV show anymore. Community is kind of like my Sex and the City.
I attended the Greek festival and ate a gyro. I ran into an old friend who recommended I have pasta flora and she was spot on. What a perfect recommendation out of the blue. Maybe we should all try to track down some pasta flora this weekend.
Because it's been unseasonably warm, I took my paddle board out to Hagg Lake. My first time using my board on a lake. It did not go smoothly. I mean, I didn't fall in but I also was stressed the whole time. Not fun! Too many speed boats!
I redeemed myself with a kayak the next day. My dad and I went out to Scappoose Bay. I'd kayaked there one time previously but you know what was there the second time? Turtles. Eight turtles. So many turtles sunning and swimming. They were so cute and so unexpected. I'd heard of turtles in Oregon and had never seen any with my own lookers! I was absolutely beside myself. I wish I were a turtle sometimes.
If you know Scappoose, you know I was only a couple miles away from the town of St. Helens, where they filmed the movie Halloweentown! I have never seen the movie but I have heard of the movie and that reason alone was enough to drag my dad into the festivities the town puts on in honor of the movie and the spookiest season of all, Halloween.
(Why do I always feel like I'm spelling Halloween wrong? Is it because I am?)
A couple of my coworkers began decorating for Halloween two or three weeks ago. It was way too soon. But to each their own, I suppose. Who am I to judge? I've had the same drawing of a dinosaur walking down Dinosaur Street on my whiteboard since we moved into our new building a year ago.
I am still biking to work. Very cool of me to still be doing that. I do it two days a week. I normally walk my bike up two really short and steep hills on the way home but this week I didn't. Go me! Improving is so cool.
While dressed to bike, I surprised a pregnant lady who was taking a nap at my friend's house. I guess you could call her the housemate of our family friend but regardless, she was not ready to see me feeding cats at 6:00pm on a Thursday.
What that TMI? Should I not tell you about scaring pregnant ladies?
Fine, I'll stick to Fantasy Football updates. I continue to hate the NFL and yet I'm a real force to be reckoned with in my office league. I'm just trying to be a nuisance and keep the owner of our company and his dad out of the playoffs. I think I can do it. I am 3-1 right now.
Wow. That's probably it for me. No more news ever. I'm done being eventful. Sayonara!
