Well yesterday was pretty good. I went to the Buddhist talk at Eastern and there were more ppl showing up for it than I thought there would be. That was cool. Like the room was PACKED with ppl standing in the hall.
Venerable Semkye talked almost the whole hour, so there wasn’t a lot of time for questions for the entire group. She was saying what was most relevant of what the Buddha taught for today – Ethics, something in the middle, and compassion. Why can’t I remember the middle one? I heard later that ppl were saying the talk was very helpful for right after Election day.
Then some students had to leave for class before one, there were still some ppl hanging out afterwards, and I was getting really hungry, but the host said there would be food, so I stuck it out, and I was really glad, they brought out a crock pot and sandwiches and salad and bread, and because Buddhist nuns are vegetarian, all the food was vegetarian, it was very yummy!
There was split lentil soup, veggie sandwiches, and this really delicious salad with pecans or walnuts or something and apples too along with the greens and a yummy dressing. The bread was good for dipping in the soup.
Several of the students wanted to stay behind and ask Venerable questions, that was nice, and I got to talk to the group a little as we ate.
Came home, watched some Ghost Hunters, then J, Amy and I loaded the car to go to the recycling center, then stopped at Bimart, got some left over Halloween candy and there wasn’t much of a selection, so we got one bag of Raisinettes and one back of sour gummy worms.
We watched the news and still don’t know who won senator for WA – still waiting to find out, I checked the news website this morning.
I was playing Etrian Odyssey 3 and cannot get past this one spot!! Water currents push you over, and I can’t advance in the game, must be able to get past it! I looked up a map Zaref or whoever made, showing that the path beyond the current is what you must take, but no advice about how to get past it – and I checked the FB page for Etrian Odyssey 3 and you can’t post anything there anymore, so much for posting a Help me post!
This morning I read some of Fear the Worst when I got up (it was freaking cold btw I hadn’t left the heat on all night). That book is really good for a suspense novel.
Should go to the library today, to return some books and print off stuff for work.
UPDATE: Well I found this in the draft folder. Thought I had already posted it. I went to the library and printed out what looked like the necessary papers.
J came home upset with the place he was applying for a job, apparently they ignored him while gave everyone else who showed up an interview. How rude! I wish they wouldn’t do that, now he’s super-convinced no one wants to hire him.
Playing EO3 while I watch news b/c I know how to continue on now : )
WordPress is an “article” place, wish I could think of an “article” to write. I think of some ideas, but nothing I’m inspired to write yet.
