early morning thoughts

Yesterday I did more mopping than ever before, so after work I had a few drinks (gratis, of course).  For a long time I followed a policy of no drinking on Mondays.  I want to start reading more on the train.  And also acquire some sort of portable music device again.  Both of these things will increase the quality of my life, I think.  I have grown attached to my neighborhood.  I don’t want to leave it.  I like my close proximity to 3 train lines, all of which I use on a regular basis.  I am afraid of change?

 Jesse is in Chico, CA now for a visit.  I started writing a little ditty about our last Chico visit.  It goes something like this:

 Riding on interstate 5, I almost lost my life/ Cruisin’ in my brand new ride, I nearly lost my life.

I thought it could have a sort of twangy, not-quite-country Neil Young feel.

I just got an email from a friend who said he heard about J’s headaches and the “fumes at my house” and that I should be careful about carbon monoxide poisoning.  It’s the number one cause of accidental poisoning deaths in the US.  What??  I’m alarmed.  I don’t know where he heard there were fumes at my house because that never occurred to me.
