Actual words

A strange day, with actual words toward a story, finally

Day started, after a breakfast of quiche and applesauce, with a run to the closest local convenience store (open 7 am to 10 PM every day) where the proprietor wears a gun on his hip, to pick up three copies of the local Sunday paper -- they covered our upcoming reading and signing by running my flier copy as a news story.  The guy at the store had a drive-off gas robbery last week when someone apparently filled the tank, drove away, and then got caught in Bangor after robbing two convenience stores ... guess the gun on the hip works.

Then I had to fight with a credit card company because I've started printing my own postage and they thought I needed protection (who could possibly need to buy $947 worth of postage in a week, anyway?) so they were shutting my card down ... sigh. 

Then the Ravens lost.  The I read about how unintended consequences yet again,  http://www.sciencedaily.com/releases/2009/10/091001164102.htm , and the Orioles -- won in 11 ...

and my viewpoint character is still trying to decide what his name is.
