When I got up today, I didn't have much on the docket to do. So I started my usual routine of watching the talking heads on one of the cable channels, and playing Candy Crush on my iPad. Sometime later in the morning, I got a text from RO that she wouldn't be able to make it this weekend as she had case of pneumonia and was running a 104 degree fever. And if this wasn't enough, GFJ hectored me a little regarding getting out and about:
I am concerned about you spending so much time inside. Maybe Marian could take a ride to Danbury Mall and window shop. Then have dinner outside at Stew Leonard's. Even if you are tired force yourself to go out and you will feel better.
To a degree, she is right. But I'm tired of doing a lot of things alone. I like being with people, and don't have the network of friends that I'd like to have to keep busy and ass a little meaning to my life.

One of the things that does keep me busy each day is writing the daily blog entry. And I do judge my blog's popularity by the number of readers. It's not a large number most days. But today, this number spiked four/five fold. Since today's post (referring to the current post, and not this one to be published later) is relatively short and has few keywords, I can't figure out why the sudden interest in this blog.
If I could figure out if today's spike was because I said something interesting, I'd love to know what it is, so that I could tickle that collective nerve again.
