Day 651

Imagine my surprise when I woke up this morning and discovered that over 3000 people had me in their Google+ circles. I'm certain that the number was way less than this yesterday. The floodgates have opened. All of the sudden Google+ has gone from being a cool, semi-quiet place where you could actually talk with Silicon Valley luminaries to being a crowded, noisy place that is not that different from Twitter. Oh, well. It was nice while it lasted.

I think all my clients woke up with a bad case of I want it now this morning. I had a hard time getting anything done today because every time I got started on something, someone else called with an emergency that they said they needed even quicker. Surely some of this stuff could wait until tomorrow.

Dash got his bi-weekly antigen shot today. I had the nurse look at his teeth while we were at the vet. I think a tooth is bothering him, since he keeps rubbing his snout on the carpet in the evenings. It seems like the whole family is falling apart. Dash has a toothache. Janet has come down with a bad cold, and I've still got my neck problems.

When I was walking the dogs this morning, I remembered that I had forgotten to pay an important bill that was due weeks ago. Why can't I remember these things? Reluctantly, I added the hefty late fee and put the check in the mail. I have a feeling that on the day the bill was actually due, it must have been another of those I want it now days where everybody was bugging me about stuff they wanted immediately. Life has become far too complicated for my taste.

  1. You are a very popular fellow! Most of my real life friends don't do social media at all. I'm pretty much on that same page, but that doesn't sell books.

    I've been swamped with web work too. Two clients who haven't needed anything for months suddenly want things this week, and my current new account keeps expanding what they want... all good for the wallet, but I'm juggling time like a circus act!
