55º, mist, and an excuse

my favourite weather is what scots call a soft day - cool and grey with humidity level so high that water droplets sort of hang in the air. one of the reasons i love this weather is that there is no pressure on these days. on sunny days it's all GO OUTSIDE and DO YARDWORK and EXERCISE and so on. ENJOY THE WEATHER. gah. get off my back, sunshine. on grey days it's like playing hooky on life. everyone just gives up and watches netflix. ahhh.

also, grey is one of my favourite colours, along with periwinkle and pine-green.

in other news, i am in grad school now. in the past month, i've produced 59 pages of content, 4 cover pages, 4 reference lists, and 4 tables of content. because this is a writing-intensive endeavor, i am going to use it as an excuse for my not writing more here. of course, i am already not writing much here, but now i have An Excuse!

maybe all the grad school intensity will pay off later in more blog posts. (don't bet on it.)

i'll try to stop by and leave a note now & then, which probably won't be much different than it has been the past few months.

maybe you wouldn't even have noticed.

but if you do...

remember:

i have An Excuse.
