I am nosy. Always have been. I majored in it in college. Really. All journalists do is find out about people's shit and then tell everybody. Being a journalist is a license to be nosy. I was fabulous at the finding out part. Where I fell short was the telling everybody. Once I knew, I didn't really care if anyone else did. Plus the pay sucked.

I never lost the nosy skill. Still have it but I'm finding it's dimmed a bit.

There's a couple down the hall here who moved into their condo about the same time I did - January 1992. We've been neighbors a long time. He's a retired university professor and she's a retired banker. He's kind of annoying and so is she really. They have a little yappy dog who's name is Maddie. The current Maddie looks just like the two Maddies before her. I think they shop at a Maddie store that only sells white furry yappy dogs named Maddie. But, I digress.

They are moving out. Today. Last weekend I ran into him moving boxes and he told me they were moving to Columbia City (a neighborhood maybe 15 minutes south of here). I wonder are they moving into another condo? Or are the renting? Why not move into a retirement place? Are they selling their unit? Why now?

She's actually sitting in the lobby right now watching the movers move stuff. I could easily go sit beside her and ask and she'd be fine with it. But, I discovered, that I don't care at all. I'm just not interested. Whatever. My nosy is running out of nose, I guess.

Happily my sewing is in tact. I have a new suit.

This fabric cost me $34 which is nearly twice what I usually pay. It is clearly a much higher quality. Thicker than usual. I'm not sure I like the thickness. I wonder if it will 'swim' longer than usual. My usual fabric, after so many swims, usually about six months worth depending on how many suits I have in rotation, just loses it's stretch and pretty soon the fabric starts pooling under my butt. Not pretty. I wonder how long this expensive stuff will last before the pooling. Guess I'll find out about January.

I did hop in the car and drive down to the new poke place. I don't know if I like it as well as Uwajimaya's but I do like it a lot. This week they have a new friend program to incentivize. I rarely sign up for these things usually because they require a card. But this place is owned and operated by kids. You don't need no stinkin' card! They sucked me in and now I am their poke bitch. Oh well could be worse.

I need to do laundry. But, tomorrow seems like a good day for that. I think I'll see what Steve and Kate are doing about those bad guys in Line of Duty.
