Audio Post: a year since Katrina

this is an audio post - click to play

Yes, I write on the backs of photographs...

Doesn't everyone?

Apparently not.

In 50 years or so (should I be so blessed to live to 92), while in the throes of senility, I can remember people from my younger days.

*wink* especially you.

Even just a date helps. Hmmm, August of 2006...yes, I was in Wyoming, working in radio. I remember it well...

This is my mom and dad's fault, really. They started it! It's a good thing, too.

I even look on the backs of other people's pictures to see if there's anything written there. Usually, though, I'm disappointed.

There'll be another post on this at some point, just to show you what I mean about making notes on the backs of the pictures I take.

That's all from where I sit.

The car that I was going to buy from a friend up here fell thru. It would cost more to fix what's wrong with it than he was going to ask for it.

Back to square one. Drat!

I've got a couple of other ideas, so I will look into those on Monday.


(PS: thanx 4 peeking.)

And then there are the times I feel like a complete dope

Like today for instance.

I stayed late at work, and in the middle of my recording a new promo for my show, someone instant messages me from Yahoo on my cell phone. I can't stop and answer so I keep going. About an hour later, I check, and the messages are from someone I wanted to talk to, but by what they said in their message, it's clear that they are no longer available to talk to.

I answer to say I got the message, and I get a message back that this user would like to add me to their Yahoo! Messenger. Thing is, I thought I already WAS on their list!

Did they take me off for some reason? Was it someone goofing around? I really don't know, and at the moment, the reasons why don't concern me. I just want a chance to talk to this person and see what the hell's going on.

It's probably nothing, as I have a tendency to make mountains out of molehills... I just found it a little strange.

Ahh, technology. Even after nearly a decade online, I still don't understand a lot of it.

That's all from where I sit.

Audio Post: a million stars in the Wyoming sky

I can see again!

By some miracle, I got my glasses fixed on Monday. And it didn't cost me a thing!

I thought that I would have to go until the first of September without specs, but it turns out that isn't the case now.

I had given my glasses to a friend of mine to see if he could fix them, but instead, he took them to a local optical shop, where there were frames that would fit my lenses.

So by the middle of my show, I had "new" glasses. I'm still keeping my appointment on the first, because I need my eyes checked anyway. Then I'll get some more in style frames. The ones that broke and the ones that replaced the ones that broke are not exactly in style anymore.

Go me!

That's all from where I sit.

Murphy (of Murphy's Law) and I got reacquainted again this weekend

...or, why the DJ is bruised, bumped, burned, and blind as a bat.

Bruised and bumped: I bought a bed and nightstands from WalMart on Friday. It all came in the same box, and was heavy as hell. I had a friend come over and help me put it together. I've got bumps and bruises everywhere, and my butt is sore.

I'm not buying any more furniture from WalMart unless it comes with someone to put it together.

Burned: Don't try to clean out the toaster oven while it's still hot.

Blind as a bat: My glasses broke this morning, and I can't get them fixed until tomorrow... if I'm lucky.

I have an eye doctor appointment on September 1. I can't wait that long. I'm surprised that I can see well enough to type this post.

Of course, I'm about two inches in front of the monitor as I write this. Work tomorrow is going to be fun!

Yup... Murphy and I had a grand old time. I didn't think it was all that fun though. Murphy may think differently. I'm sure he does.

Small Blessings....

Thank you.

I know that you have no idea what you did, but what you did do helped more than you'll ever know.

You will be rewarded for all your good deeds in the Kingdom of Heaven.

All I want to do is sleep

I'm not feeling well. Really and truly not.

I don't understand why, but I started feeling this way on Friday, and after spending Saturday morning out in the sun at the parade, today I feel like I want to die.

It's something like 80 degrees out there and I feel cold.

It's too early for the flu, isn't it?

Sleeping doesn't help, and eating or drinking something doesn't seem to help, either. Not that I've felt like eating, mind you.

But, I will be at work tomorrow morning, sick or not, at 5am.

That's all from where I sit.

No rest for the weary... or is that wicked?

Now I know how Larry feels sometimes.

And a question: how many damn phone books do the people here in Wyoming think I need? I got one on Wednesday, and one yesterday. And I already had one when I came up here that I got from the Chamber of Commerce.

If there's one in my mailbox today, I think I'll scream!

Okay, maybe not...

There are times when I'm the windshield, and times where I'm the bug...

and lately, I've been the friggin' BUG! (Splat!)

Today, my house phone went out for no reason that I or Bresnan (aahhh, digital telephone!) could see. Problem was, I was in the middle of a long distance call at the time, so I hope Julie at the Registry of Motor Vehicles in Massachusetts will forgive me for suddenly hanging up on her.

I'm trying to get a copy of my Massachusetts car registration so I can sell the Beretta (or rather, have Daniel do it in my stead). For some reason, it's no longer in the glove box, much to #1 son's dismay.

I don't want to sell the Beretta, but I really have no choice. Unless that nice friend of mine in Oklahoma still wants to fix her up for me... at least that will get the car out of Mom's garage.

So, yep, I'm definitely the bug lately. Looking forward to being the windshield again soon.

That's all from where I sit.

My head is pounding!

I went for a walk this morning, like I try to do every Sunday, but I don't think it was worth it today.

Despite the fact I wore a hat, my head is pounding from walking in the heat. And it's not nearly as hot as it has been.

And not a bottle of Aleve in sight.

I finally went to the fair yesterday (the last day, wouldn't you know), I only stayed for about an hour, hour and a half. Going to the fair alone is a drag. On top of that, I ate something there that didn't sit right, and it was a rough night.

I briefly thought about inquiring into helping the midway crew break down after closing, to make a couple of bucks, but decided not to. I didn't want to ask for trouble. I know how some carnies are...

I'm a "townie" all over again. No thanks.

Ouch... that smarts.

Forgiveness is the final form of love. --Reinhold Niebuhr

Maybe I should remember that.

It's not such a big deal now. I'm too damn sensitive. Maybe because I care too damn much. And I know this about myself, too!
