Before I do anything, I have to direct you to the compilation of my Six Sixes that was published earlier this month on Six Sentences when I had no Internet access. They are six short stories consisting of six sentences each and I am mighty proud of them, so please take the time to visit and read them. The format in which they are presented is really nice and it makes for fun reading, because you get to turn the pages. Just follow the instructions.
As is usual, I am sitting here having my morning coffee, but black this time, because I ran out of milk last night and because it was raining, I didn't make it to the store. It isn't too bad black, but I am going to like it all the more when I get my hands on some milk and drink it properly the way I am used to. I used to drink my coffee black all the time, but since I am back in the Netherlands, I have started using milk again, because the coffee here is a lot stronger than it was in the States.
Today is Inauguration Day and I tell you, if there is a time when I do want to believe in God, it is when I think of Barack Obama. Every time he makes a speech and says, "Thank you America and God bless you," I say out loud, "No, God bless you, Barack Obama." I am so afraid that that man is going to be assassinated and today would be the day for it, of course. The proceedings are going to be on television at six PM our time and I am going to watch them. As a matter of fact, I think he gets sworn in at one minute before six PM, so I'll have to start watching sooner.
I have been reading my head off on the Google reader, but I have no intention of catching up on everything, of course. There are so many unread posts. I read as many of the latest ones as I can to be up to date as much as possible. It is a fun activity and it is also fun to comment on my favorite blogs. It's nice to see that everyone is so consistent and that almost nobody has suddenly changed styles or moods or themes. Whereas I have been known to do so myself.
I have neglected my other website and must make it over there today to change the image and the name. I hope I can come up with something good. The page on which I have the best names has been used as a coaster for my coffee mug and many coffee rings cover it. Some of them are barely readable. Sloppy me.
I'll now go and take my medicines and do all the other early morning chores. Life's tough that way.
