Weekend Coffee Share is a time for us to take a break out of our lives and enjoy some time catching up with friends (old and new)!
Grab a cup of coffee and share with us! What’s been going on in your life? What are your weekend plans? Is there a topic you’ve just been ruminating on that you want to talk about?
If we were having coffee this week I’d say we should enjoy it outside. Since it is looking like it’s going to be a nice, crisp, fall weekend. Warm enough to be outside (maybe with a sweater), but still dry.
I have HOPES for the weekend. My dad and stepmom are going to be in town, so we’re looking for somewhere to safely get together to visit, I haven’t seen them since… well I think it’s been since Thanksgiving last year. I was scheduled to go up for a visit in March, but then Pandemic hit, and they were going to come down here a few weeks ago but the smoke got in the way of all of their camping plans. It will be really good to see them again.
I also have some high hopes to not only get homework and online-friend time in, but also to do some organizing and cleaning in the main part of the house. I would like to re-discover the living room and dining room (which has become something of a holding zone over the past few months).
One of my homework assignments right now actually involves all of you. My class about Web and Data mining is doing a project where we are looking at text over a series of webpages. I was trying to think of pages that might be interesting to look at, which would have enough different content to be interesting, but would also have the potential for some patterns to emerge. So I decided to look at Weekend Coffee Share posts. Instead of just looking at my own posts, I’ve gone ahead and pulled all the shared posts (along with my own) for September and October (so far). It will be interesting to see what kind of similar language we might all have, what topics come up, if there are themes I can tell (or if it’s all just a mess because everyone’s framing content gets counted in there as well so that will repeat every week and make it seem like those are common words). I’ll be sure to share any insight I find though.
Stomach is still being mean to me, I have an upper endoscopy scheduled to take a look, but it’s not until after Thanksgiving so I continue to just wait.
This week I also have a somewhat random question for you all. I was talking to my boss the other day and mentioned that I have a twin, which I followed with “but we really don’t talk much.” I realized afterwards that what I said could sound like there’s an interesting story, or something there. But there isn’t, we just don’t talk much. It made me think about what things other people might have, random facts about themselves that sound interesting but really aren’t. Do you have a random interesting-sounding, but actually rather mundane, fact about yourself?
Hope you’re having a good week and have good weekend plans.
