Little Things

Just a couple of little things from the end of my week...

Whenever I take the bus home, I pass by a tailor shop owned by an old Turkish man. I wave to him every time I pass by the window and he smiles and waves back. For years I've done this, and yesterday, on the way home, I saw him for the first time outside the shop, enjoying a pipe. I was happy to finally get to say hello in person and introduce myself. It was especially nice because I hadn't been by the window in a couple of months (except the day before, where I'd walked by late, so the shop had already closed). It was a very nice chat. His name is Ali.

Later the same night, I got an email from my boss (to everyone in my department) that was subject: STOP THE PRESSES! and explained that the woman I'm replacing at the downtown campus is staying with us through the end of the month, so I won't be starting there next week. I replied with "but I already burned all my Brighton Campus clothes!" (hehehe)

Also, as of last night, I'm finally able to catch up on Game of Thrones via HBO-Go on my PS3. I'm halfway through S3 and kind of suspect HBO-Go is cutting some of the sexy bits (though as I recall, it kind of ruined sex for me half the time anyway).

AAAAAAND just now, 3am, I heard someone unload a gun somewhere in the neighbourhood. Sweet dreams, Rochester.

I'm really pleased because I just found out that here in England they are showing it at 2am with no commercials!

Sometimes I enjoy talking to people I meet on the street. Some of them have some fascinating thoughts and stories to share.

On one hand, I was happy to have finally met him, but on the other, the dynamic of our anonymous friendship has changed forever. I'm much better equipped mentally to be one-time friends with strangers I'll never see again, but usually I'm still glad to see them again.
