"Sleeping & Peeping ..............................Gift From A Goddess .......................A Little Bird Told Me.....(Or....Rockin' Robin....[All The Little Birdies Go Tweet Tweet Tweet]..)........."

Good Afternoon;
Well weatherwise it has been a great couple of days, if slightly more March than April. Sleeping in the shed has been pretty comfortable, even in the erratic periods I have been sleeping and waking.

Today I was up at 5:30 am. to run over to the gas station to use the bathroom, (on Sunday it was 3:30 am.), and fell back asleep until 8:30 am. I had no pressing reason to get up so I dozed on and off until nearly Noon catching up on the sleep deficit I have been running recently. When I was about to leave the shed I looked out some of the cracks and crevices, doing my usual surveillance before leaving. Just to avoid any possible confrontation or misunderstanding if anyone was out there. Good thing I did because there was a police car sitting in the lot 15 feet from the door. There must have been a shift rotation or influx of cops from another district because in the past 2 weeks there have been more incidences of patrol cars sitting in various places in both parking lots, one hidden from traffic, the other hidden from sight in general, than in the past 3+ years I have been there. Even though I was told I may stay in the shed, I still get paranoid around the cops......old habits die hard I guess.

I forgot to mention something that happened here at the Starbucks on Saturday afternoon/evening when I got back from Jenn's. A young woman whose name I cannot remember for the life of me, and have not seen for a while, came in and said Hi an we chatted for a while. She is either an intern, med student, or may be a doctor by now an I mentioned her in previous posts, (though I can't remember which ones, other than that it has been quite a while back), and I remember introducing Rachel to her. 
After she went to the counter she stopped by my table and handed me a $20.00 Starbuck's gift card, out of the blue, just saying, "this is for you". Well I was surprised an caught off guard and tongue tied and could barely get out a thank you. I'm going to have to take the time to search the archived posts....(Now I really wish I had a battery that held a charge!)

Many, MANY thanks.....and I WILL find your name..... ;-)
Today I got an e-mail from  doctoral student at JHU with an invitation to participate in the HEaR ME Tweet & Tumblr project. In exchange for basically doing what I have been doing here at my little "Exercise In Exorcism", only tweeting it also, I get the use of a GoPhone smart phone and unlimited talk/text/internet for a year. I am in the process of setting up a face to face to find out more.......stay tuned.....
