Meet Sparrow, an average man passing an average life…

Well, I am pleased to report my new desk chair hasn’t broken yet
Overall, I am rather pleased with my home office. Longtime readers of this crap may – or they may not – recall that when we moved into The Shire a couple of years ago I bought was a pretty nice desk, actually a printer’s table, as it’s called…The chair I bought was serviceable but wasn’t the nice high back chair that came last week…Throw in the suh-weeet brown leather desk pad that retails for $225 that I bought for $35 and the pictures and maps and books and whatnot, and I have a home office to be pleased with.
The cat is getting a new yummy in the mornings…It’s called glop, and we discovered it a few years ago when we got our cat and her sister, who was born sick and died after a couple-three months…Anyway, we discovered glop while doing some research for something that was easy for a sick kitten to eat and digest and might give her some strength…Glop, or at least the glop we make, consists of water and mayonnaise and gelatin and condensed milk and some plain yogurt…I know this because I printed the recipe for The Wife, tho don’t ask me how to make it…I tried it once, just for funsies, and it actually wasn’t too bad and the cat seems to like it, too, so we now give it to her in the morning despite the fact she has dry food available all the time and she still gets her evening canned food.
Had some quality time at the gym today…I moved some good weight and followed that up with really good cardio and then spent 20 minutes or so in the sauna before hitting the hot springs…The Wife was off doing some volunteer work when I got home, so I spent the afternoon working on the Great American Novel I’ve been writing for a few months.
Filled the bird feeder today, too, since it’s been warm the lately and you can see the lawn again…The only problem is the only bird seed we have is some fancy pants stuff Her Majesty bought last week…It’s got pics on the bag and stuff, not plain red letters saying cheap bird seed and 20lbs for $6, which is the stuff I buy.
This stuff even looks fancy…It’s all sunflower seeds, and they’re oiled and black and whatnot and probably cost a lot more than six bucks.
We’ll be back to feeding them the 20 pounds for six bucks crap soon enough…They’re birds…They can’t tell the difference.
The Diary of a Nobody is a novel. All elements are either products of the author’s imagination or are used fictitiously. Anything else is a coincidence.
It was inspired by the 19th-century British novel of the same name.
