I am slicing every day in March along with my fellow writer in our community organized by Two Writing Teachers. Today I use at Lanny’s suggestion, Brittany Butler’s clever Browser Mystery as a mentor text.
Yesterday… a History #sol20
March 26, 2020
The idea of tracing back how my mind worked over a course of an evening through my browser history sounded hilarious, so this morning I thought I would make that trip myself. First problem, I was on three different devices yesterday searching, not to mention the random questions I call out to our Google Home. For example, I asked the Google Assistant how old Chaka Khan was yesterday… she’s 67 in case you were wondering. This random question brought to you by The Masked Singer.
First thing yesterday, I looked up the Sourdough Starter recipe from King Arthur. Since the classroom teacher I was working on the fungus project with retained custody of our starter, I’ve been trying to get one going here at home using ‘wild yeast’. It’s not going so well. I hear our starter at his house is lonely too.
When I read an article about difficulties that restaurants are having now, so I looked up all the local restaurants that I could think of and their take out menus and hours. Do I dare take-out? I can barely go to the grocery store.
After beginning to watch Tiger King on Netflix (Yikes!) on the recommendation of older son, I started wondering about tigers in these crazy home-grown ‘zoos’. Did you know that there about three times as many tigers in these ‘zoos’ just in the US than are in the wild?!?! That made me think of Siegfried and Roy. While they don’t perform anymore, they still have tiger in a Secret Garden in Las Vegas. This internet search stops here.
These all are just ‘after work’.
Considering what to make for dinner, I checked on a meatloaf recipe, just make sure I was going down the right road. I ended up putting in whatever I wanted anyway, a recipe is just a suggestions, right? You know some breadcrumbs, an egg, ketchup, spices, the usual. Comfort food at its best. I checked on some spaghetti squash recipes too, Maybe that will make it onto tomorrow’s menu.
I have about 15 tabs open on my laptop right now related to work, but let’s leave them there for now… or just clear all.
