We’ll just call this a Friday round up since I don’t really have anything to say. I just want to make sure I continue being a Tiny Pepper and post for Nano Poblano. It’s the 20th today, and I’ve almost made it through the entire month; I’d hate to break the streak now.
I also want to note that this week marked the birthday of one of my dear, dear friends from high school, whom I recently reconnected with on Facebook. Like so many of the people I spent those
wonderful, confusing, exciting, desperate years with, we lost touch. She got married, had kids, moved up to NorCal. . . all the usual stuff. The only reason I joined Facebook was to get back into touch in some small way with people like her, and I’m so glad I did. This is just a little shout out to her, because knowing she (and all the other old friends I found) are out there is such a nice thing.
It’s an appropriate song, in spite of the fact that Adele is singing about such heartbreak in it. I’m not heartbroken (one of the eternally pleasant byproducts of swearing off romance) about anything, and certainly not finding friends. But this is just an awesome song by an awesome artist. You might think that I’m a little behind since this has been making the rounds on the interwebs for a couple of weeks now, but the album just dropped today and I picked up a copy when I was at Target today; call it an early Christmas gift to myself. I’m very much looking forward to listening to the rest.
I have to go now, because the kettle is starting to whistle and I really want my cuppa.
