Me & My Muse – Day 2080: Spring-ish Toast

Spring-ish, because today is actually the last day of Winter.  The first day of Spring is actually tomorrow.

And as you know about my toast entries, I am actually referring to an evening Toastmasters meeting.  With work done for the day, I will be going to a Toastmasters meeting tonight.  After that, I will have dinner at Taco Bell.  That’s pretty much this day in a nutshell.

Today’s high is going to be 47 degrees and the silver lining is it finally being warmer outside.

To those of you who are glad that winter is finally gone, I hope that you all have a fantastic day.


Muse:  Spring-ish?  Just say Spring!  We’re close enough to it!


Me & My Muse – Day 2079: DayQuil…NyQuil… – Part II: The Second Dose

Even since I’ve had this cold, this has been my mantra. And like any cold I ever had, I experience the typical pattern. Over time, I get better and better.

As far as updates go, this is all you’re going to get today. I took it easy while I blew my nose and ran the vaporizer. I worked from home and I took a shower at lunch time. That’s about it.

Today’s high is going to be 41 degrees and the silver lining is having time to recover from this cold.

To those of you who are sick of the taste of cold syrup, I hope that you all have a fantastic day.


Muse: I made you some chicken noodle soup. I hope that will help you to get well. Get plenty of rest too! That usually helps the most with colds! I hope you feel well soon…

Me & My Muse – Day 2078: Lucky Day

Why is it lucky?  Here’s why.


It’s also lucky because I don’t have a lot to say today.  I need to get ready for church so I need to get started.

Today’s high is going to be 38 degrees and the silver lining is celebrating St. Patrick’s Day.

To those of you who are wearing green, I hope that you all have a fantastic day.


Muse: Wait! You’re not wearing green…I’ll let you get a shower first. I won’t pinch. I promise!

Me & My Muse – Day 2077: Corned Beef a Day Early

What?  You can’t have corned beef a day early!  You have to eat it on St. Patrick’s Day!

Well guess what?  We’re having it early, and there’s actually a reason behind it.

The primary reason why we are having the corned beef and cabbage a day early is that I’m having a birthday dinner at my grandparent’s house.  This is a makeup for my dad’s birthday, which was all the day back on Monday.


Muse:  Time for some corned beef!

Wait!  You’re having it early too?

Muse:  Why not?  You don’t have to have it on St. Patrick’s Day!  It’s still St. Patrick’s Day weekend, right!

Right.  I guess it doesn’t make much of a difference when you have it.  Just as long as you have it some time during the weekend.

Muse:  Yup!  It’s about done, so I’m going to have some now! Oh, and you should come over later, too… 🙂

I’ll definitely consider that!  I’ll probably make it after I have some corned beef and cabbage myself… 🙂

Muse:  See you later then!

*Muse vanishes in a beam of light*

To briefly review today, I had an area speech contest for Toastmasters.  It was a low turnover, due to Area 16 not having any contestants.

After the speech contest, I got some much needed shopping done.  I then went home and rolled some coins.  The rest of the afternoon should consist of more story progress, with some delicious corned beef and cabbage later on!  Yum!  I can’t wait!

Today’s high is going to be 34 degrees and the silver lining is having some corned beef and cabbage later on.

To those of you who like traditional St. Patrick’s Day dishes, I hope that you all have a fantastic day.


Muse:  Mmm!  It’s perfect!  The corned beef is nice and tender!  It’s juicy and it melts right in my mouth!  I hope that Kyle remembers about coming over later… 🙂

Me & My Muse – Day 2076: Friday Filler

For starters, getting my taxes done is one of the things that I want to get done today.

For this very reason, I am going to cut this one short today.

Today’s high is going to be 42 degrees and the silver lining is being able to get my taxes done.

To those of you who like get your taxes done, I hope that you all have a fantastic day.


Muse:  Did you say taxes?  I need to get started on them!  Let’s see.  My tax folder should be around here somewhere…

Me & My Muse – Day 2075: Easy as Pi

How is today so easy?  It can be expressed in the form of pi.  With today being 3/14, I will be expressing the first 1,000 digits of pi:

And if that isn’t enough, I even have someone singing about it.  Here’s a YTMND of Kate Bush singing π.


Muse:  To celebrate, I’m baking a pi pie!

Have fun with that.  For me, I’ll just be observing it. Time to get ready…

Muse:  Time to bake my pi pies.  I’m baking 3.14 of them exactly…


Today is the day for all nerds to celebrate.  At 3:14 p.m., remember to look at your watch! Right when it turns this time, count 15 seconds and you will have pi to 5 places.  Today will consist of the usual work load, but I’ll be celebrating Pi Day there too!  To celebrate after work, I will have three different pies.  The first pie will be a slice of pie at the Grand Traverse Pie Company. The second pie will be a pie.  At home, I will have a slice of key lime and Cookies and Cream Edwards pie.  The third and final pie will be another dessert.  Two Reese’s Big Cups.  While they’re not technically “pies“, they are pie-shaped.  Having that said, my Pi Day will be celebrated with food.

Today’s high is going to be 59 degrees and the silver lining is celebrating Pi Day.

To those of you who love nerdy holidays, I hope that you all have a fantastic day.

Me & My Muse – Day 2074: Another Easy One…

Since I’m leaving for my 6:00 meeting with my Adult Discipleship leader, I’m going to keep this short.

I have that, and a rather packed Wednesday.  Besides the originally scheduled meetings today, I have a new project to work on.

That’s about it.  Survivor will be recorded tonight so I can watch it tomorrow.

Today’s high is going to be 46 degrees and the silver lining is it being even warmer.

To those of you who like the warmer weather, I hope that you all have a fantastic day.


Muse:  It is starting to get warm.  The temperature is already in the 30’s and the sun hasn’t even come up!
