Getting Sentimental Before Turning In

I got home just after 11 p.m. I never made it to the Meetup. In fact, I fell asleep and did not go out until about 7 p.m. I missed a lot of the lunar happening, but what I did see was so peaceful and beautiful. I am glad I decided to enjoy it in solitude.

I went out to a place where there are not a lot of lights, so I could also see the magnificent stars. I turned on my radio to 88.5 KPLU for All Blues on Sunday nigh t.(You can get this great NPR station streaming live at

I really am a night owl. It suits me well. If only I could find the work that I do during nighttime hours.

Tomorrow morning I have an early appointment for my monthly Octreotide LAR injection. I wish it were one that I could give to myself, but it is an intra-gluteal injection, so I have to get it done by a trained health professional. It makes money for the doctors, too, I suppose, as I cannot simply go in for the injection here in the shot clinic, where I am being seen right now.

I will drop by the library to return some materials and to pick up the movie, Mud , that came in on Saturday.

I had plans to get my nails done tomorrow, but decided to cut them very short and give them a breather. It feels strange not to have them beyond my fingertips, but it will save me a bit of money to keep them short and just put clear nail polish on them myself.

I received an email from a former colleague I met through a training seminar six years ago. She has started her own company, and contacted me today for the possibility of facilitating a three-week workshop in Texas the end of next month on which she is bidding. I need to call her tomorrow to find out the details. I may opt out of October and November workshops with the military for those two months, if this works out. I shall know more tomorrow.

Well, it is past midnight and time for me to shut down, after recording my daily stats.

These past 24 hours, I earned 227 coins, writing seven articles.

Again, I thank you all for your support, friendship, and the sense of community that is truly developing here at Persona Paper. May we all continue to support one another in the spirit that uplifts.

And now, as I listen to KPLU, Halie Lorie is singing a most appropriate song as I say, "Good night" and dedicate this song to all of you.

"I love you for sentimental reasons, I hope you do believe me, I'll give you my heart...I love you and you alone were meant for me, please give your loving heart to me and say we'll never part...
I think of you every morning, dream of you every night, Darling, I'm never lonely whenever you are in sight...I love you for sentimental reasons, I hope you do believe me, I've given you my heart..."

If you get the three week training session in Texas, would it pay more than what you are getting now? Also, would your travel and living expenses in Texas be paid for you? If so, I think it would be sort of a nice vacation for you.

Paulie I'm not sure yet. I'm sure it will pay more than I am paid hourly for the workshops I give now. I don't know the details of anything else just yet. I will talk to Liz tomorrow. I am not even sure where in TX yet. I may even have a chance to see some friends in TX and my sister in Tulsa, if not too far away. I'll just have to see. She hasn't even won the bid yet.

CoralLevang , I certainly hope that she wins the bid and it works out for you.

Not that big a Nat King Cole fan. But, Sam Cooke's rendition was alright. Now, Ella Fitzgerald's version was almost the bee's knees. However, Patti Page's cut was my favorite.

CoralLevang wrote on September 28, 2015, 4:36 AM

Well, let me find out the details first, and if I want to do it! LOL But knowing LIz, I know she wouldn't offer me a bad gig.

CoralLevang wrote on September 28, 2015, 4:42 AM

See if you can find Halie Loren's version online. I really like her voice. She's aa 30-year old singer from Alaska. Here is a link to a live version of Cry Me a River

It probably won't be anywhere near Amarillo but, wouldn't that be fun? And, that movie, Mud - it might just be the best work Matthew McCaughnehy (sp?) has ever done. Excellent movie!

I saw the blood moon, in 1982 and our next one is in 2019. Think I will make an effort for that one!

Good luck on the new workshop offer. I could not see much of the moon here as we kept getting clouds going through Glad you enjoyed it

markgraham wrote on September 28, 2015, 10:14 AM

Good luck if the prospect. Hope it works out for you.

They feel funny cut way down. This coming from someone who used to bite her nails until they bled until five years ago.

CoralLevang wrote on September 28, 2015, 10:27 AM

You just never know where. I'l let you know when and where, if I do. And yes, I think it was from you that I took the recommendation!

CoralLevang wrote on September 28, 2015, 10:27 AM

I pray that I am still around for the 2019 one.

CoralLevang wrote on September 28, 2015, 10:28 AM

Thanks, we shall see what it is about. At least, it's something new. I need new.

CoralLevang wrote on September 28, 2015, 10:29 AM

Thanks. Just the knowledge of being wanted/considered is exciting to me. That Liz would seek me out.

MegL wrote on September 28, 2015, 1:41 PM

That sounds like a good job - 3 weeks in Mexico - as long as it is in a safe area. Glad you saw the moon in peace.

LoudMan wrote on September 28, 2015, 2:50 PM

I thought it was gonna be "another dumb chick flick." But no, it's a great piece of work.

LoudMan wrote on September 28, 2015, 2:54 PM

And I hate using that word, "chick." It's very derogatory.

CoralLevang wrote on September 29, 2015, 1:20 PM

You know, it is funny because not working since the 20th of July, I have only worn pantyhose once. LOL Most of the time, it's been jeans or casual cargo pants, a shirt, and sandals. I always put on just a little makeup because of where I live and running into people who know me from my teaching the classes (my vanity is showing), but I don't wear much. Right now, this is the first time I have had bare nails since I stopped biting them 5 years ago.

"an intra-gluteal injection", otherwise known as "a shot in the butt". Hope that went well! I'd be just slightly wary of choosing your friend's start-up over the military, considering the relative security of their financial situations. But it sounds like you will make sure all your ducks are in a row before making the decision. Maybe she could change her schedule so that you wouldn't have to take the time off?
