3. TODAY'S SELF-OBSERVATION
As I knew full well would happen, and not in a bad way, I'm not doing a lot with having the house to myself for 24 hours, just watching TV and computing, and enjoying it immensely! With chores to do, my simple enjoyment is somewhat shorter anyway - there's shopping, ironing, lawn mowing and hedge trimming to be done!
I see online that my war on chuggers didn't evoke any immediate viral tidalwave, just a bullshit response on Twitter from ActionAid. Never mind, at least they will soon know to leave ME alone.
Amused, Higher Consciousness looks on...
