Red Skies At Night

The boys.




Just me and the dog tonight. It’s weird. So when’s the last time we hung out here? I guess it’s been a little bit, right? Let’s do some updates.

  • The dog is less than 48 hours from a good ol’ fashioned ball snippin’. As I type this he is VIOLENTLY humping my leg. AND farting. I am not even kidding. Talk about the worse date EVER! At least in the top ten. That’s sad
  • I picked up the remnants of a failed dream last week. As much as I loved the idea, I do not have time to effectively stock an antiques case. I suppose we’ll put this one on the back burner for now. Is it self-destructive that I was secretly hoping one of the dolls in the case (on the left) would magically come back to me? So I lost a tiny bit of money. Totally worth it!
  • I GOT A FUCKING iPHONE!!! Part of me feels like a sell-out, but I am truly a better person because of my phone purchase. The phone makes me more confident. The phone makes me feel like part of a wolf pack. I have Instagram. I can play a fishing game. I can look things up anywhere. I can watch a video. I can ask it if there’s a Noodles in Grandview. And there’s at least one hundred things I don’t even know it can do yet. Game changer. I should do a blog post JUST on my iPhone. 
  • Job is going o.k. Wallace had a show opening last night. To say that it was successful would pretty much be an understatement. Oh, you might not know this… Wallace has a BUILDING-SIZED mural of one of his paintings (on a building- duh) in the Short North. Do I sound a little jealous? Maybe it’s because I am a little jealous. Just kidding. Maybe?
So in the morning when I’m in the shower I have tons of ideas for blog items, but at nighttime, right before I go watch the Hulu I have beer ideas for blog items. I promise I’ll be more attentive to your needs (like you care). I’ve been really S.A.D. lately. Gloomy winter = depressing blog posts that I quickly delete. It’s getting better. Red skies at night! O.k., well not TONIGHT, but soon!

  1. OH! WELCOME BACK! Now it will be a good day, because you had a fresh new post!
    1st, Isn't it strange how good ideas come to one in the shower? I think it has something to do with the "aaaahhhhh" of holy hot water. When I climb in, I intend to wash away the cares of the day--and then, with THEM out of the way, I'm open to some good stuff. I do think about it, often.
    2nd.iPhone. I'm jealous, but I'm so darn cheap. Well, I DO have car payments again..unexpectedly. (Did I tell you my Jeep was totaled in Dec. when a guy WHO HAD A FREAKIN' STOP SIGN!! pulled out in front of me? and the cops didn't cite him?and told me I didn't have to fill out an accident report, because he admitted fault? Get this: the cop LIED to me! OH, it's a nightmare, forget I brought it up---may need another nice hot calming shower after this, though... I do have a lovely new car--a 5 year old--but in GREAT shape Toyota Rav4: Ms. Pixie Bluebell. I'll be paying for her for 6 years! )
    Anyway, I DO kinda covet other people's iPhones--I love the photos people are taking, and all the apps...everytime I get together with sons, there's always at least 1 point that needs clarification, or we need directions, or hours of some establishment's operations--"GOOGLE IT!" But for now, I can only afford the most primitive model of telephone.
    In addition to my ongoing love affair with Harry Dresden, I've read 2 other good books that I want everybody who likes to read to hear about--"The Circle," by Dave Eggers (since you're now "plugged in", this cautionary tale is a MUST-READ!! )and I just discovered a new book of short stories by B.J. Novak that I think you'll like, called "One More Thing" :Stories and Other Stories. I do love a good collection of short stories--so handy when waiting at appointments, or on 15 minute breaks (while everyone else is mesmerized by their iPhones).
    Sorry you were .."Under the weather"--glad if you're starting to feel better. It HAS been a dull slog, hunh? You shouldn't feel like you have to entertain-- YOU just being YOU is a rare gift you should keep sharing with this jaded world.
    Nice visiting with you, here, again! XXX
    (sounds like Winston is doing just fine, if he's still humping and farting....amazing how our animal friends can just bounce right back after their...umm..health-related procedures)

    1. Mary Jo!!!! So glad to hear from you!!!! BOOOO on the shitty wreck situation but YAY on your new-to-you car!!! That's gotta feel great! Curses on the heads of all the assholes! OMG, I am totally going to get that Eggers book. He keeps coming up in recommendations. I finished a Palahniuk yesterday so I JUST downloaded a new book to my Kindle today (another Ellison) from the library so the clock's ticking on that one, but as soon as that's finished, this one is for sure next. Then the Novak one! How pissed am I that it's fucking snowing again! GARRHHHHH! Oh well, hopefully it will melt sometime soon. Along with my heart. Yeah, this has been a dark winter for my brain. I think my hormones are starting to go all whackadack as well . No help there. About the phone, I had two shitty, basic crap phones in a row that dropped calls like they're hot. I had no choice in getting a new one. Since I already pay a gajillion dollars for a plan for me and the kids (who had better phones than I did) I said FUCKIT! I'm getting a G.D. iPhone! I feel shallow for loving an appliance so much, but it is so awesome. No regrets. Well, I should go and get some work done today. Holy shit! It's almost noon! How did that happen? Lots of love and hugs!!!
