blowing it away blowing me away

I'd opened this window to say how I was thinking about being in Oregon years ago just after Lorne had somehow (how I didn't know, it blew my mind how) up & deleted Tetris from his computer, as it'd been sucking him in to wasting his time for hours & hours. I still could barely imagine how cool it would be to be able to play Tetris free, whenever you wanted, at home, and there he had DELETED it off the MACHINE, out of some bizarre notion that he'd prefer, overall, in his better judgment, not staring into the thing for hours. Instead of doing other things he could imagine that he could be doing.

So I was thinking about this (about him and then), as I'd been wasting time playing a move-the-shapes game not even as good (or new)---to the extent that I was sitting here at work longer than I needed to be, clicking and swiping and racking up meaningless points. And then my phone "rang," and it was Lorne.

Really he was calling about the book thingie coming up. Seemed like it was also a voice from Elsewhere saying to stop clicking and stand up and get the hell outta here.

'Course I've also been doing email & such. But point taken, voice. Dumb game window closed.

Speaking of computers, I'm back to leaning away from a notebook/laptop. Good breeze comes up and that'll about do it. (That's how far I'm leaning.)

Doctor visit went fine, btw, if anybody's wondering. My cholesterol is notably down, and my blood sugar is delicious. Doc was charming, and we both did some laughing. Imagine that.
