habits follow me
so we both had food to take home for another meal, at least, and i found my wallet $70 lighter and i ate food i was not planning on eating and wait, it gets better, precious brought me some decadent fudge covered caramel filled cookies that she said were too rich for her... did i mention that i had raisin bran and rice milk for dinner last night and went to the gym and was all set to turn over a new leaf in diet and exercise (or at least took the first baby step towards the turn around?)...
so anyway, precious needs money... she wants to go away next summer and it's gonna cost about $4000... she's planning on fundraising... feel free to send donations to the send precious away foundation at your leisure over the next ten months... i do love her, really i do, but i'd love to see some of the $1500 or so i laid out for her car... or some of the $1000 raspy still owes me (and he's going to the ukraine in a few weeks... how come i don't have a few thousand to spend on a few weeks far away (or even some new toys)... waa waa waaah, i love the giving more than the receiving, so shut up and continue...
it was nice to see precious... she caught me up on her life the past week and reminded me about a slew of shows i want to see at the colleges in the area... sweet would be if she got me some free tickets through her connections who get her free tickets, but hey, i'm all about the giving, remember?... just seem to be wishing others were into it more often of late :)
so after i got home i jumped back on the net (except for softball tomorrow, this is my weekend for catching up on the net, relaxing at home, doing laundry, and considering unpacking) and resolved some email confusions so i think i now will get emails and be able to send emails after the bellsouth dsl goes away at the end of the month and i think i've set up comment notifications so i won't miss any more and i think i may have caught up on comments... sure did a whole lot of key tapping... and a little bt of laundry...
did i mention that the dryer knob is broken... not as obvious as the other knobs, but it would not turn cuz it was cracked inside where you cannot see it... again, wait until monday... luckily i had a wrench to turn it... the previous tenant(s) must have torn this place up but good...
i discovered that my internet connection is not going to allow me to watch youtube videos at all as they start and stop every five seconds or so and it does a mediocre job of streaming music... maybe if i find time to download them, but more time online is not in the cards as i want more life offline... and i'll miss some tv shows, movies and sports and other stuff, but the tv is probably not getting plugged in much while i am living here... so maybe i will find more intimate offline life and who knows, another the one might be right around the corner...
but at least for this weekend i was here on the net rambling on, so there are words all over the place, mostly comments and responses to comments, and that part of me that craves attention and conversation (not just ego, mind you) and reassurance and interaction impatiently awaits responses, but of course it's the weekend and life goes on and i know my place and all that jazz, so patience is the catch word of the day, or actually night...
i should get to sleep soon anyway as i do have a softball game tomorrow... and to be fair, i have little time during the week for the net most weeks these days, so just cuz i spent hours and hours rambling on and pouring myself into words for the first time in months does not mean everybody should, right?... but i didn't start it (naaa naaa na na naaaa :)
i am really loving lisa loeb... did i mention i went to see her thursday night?... i think it was thursday night... wait, maybe it was last night... no, it was thursday night... i got to go because both softball games were rained out... she was wonderful, a breath of fresh air, adorable and sexy all in a fun package with a cute and beautiful voice... she has a boyfriend in nyc...
she signed two cds after the show and i invited her to a game night next time she has an extra day to be in orlando on a game night (she likes games)... the best thing was the intimacy... she sang and did her thing within arm's length of where i was standing, though up on a stage (i think i did mention she has really cute knees)... musically, she's gotten to be kind of like a female tom chapin, only much more fun to look at and a voice i could fall in love with...
so i'm listening to music and tapping on the keyboard and doing laundry and enjoying the space and any day now i might move in... even with the lack of tv or cable, poor internet, potential for the return of the roaches, mediocre management, small kitchen counter space, unfavorable lighting fixtures, noisy bathroom fan, poor cellphone reception, early pool/clunhouse closing times, and odd gates (i learned how to let someone in the gates today... they have to find my name on the front key pad and then the keypad calls me and i press 5 on my cellphone and let them in... i think they get to tell me who they are, but it didn't work right the first time so i'll have to ait until someone else visits to figure that out... the leasing agent neglected to tell me how to let guests in... also gave me a faulty remote access thing, which i was able to exchange today... anyway, there's always hope and tomorrow is another day and all that optimistic stuff :)
meanwhile, as i turn my magic mirror on the blogosphere, i see there's a new blog kind of aimed at communicating with me that i am actually meant to be a contributer too... i've never been in a shared blog before, so i'm not exactly sure how it's gonna be but i'll figure it out as i go along... as you already know, we're gonna do some deep cleaning or deep seas diving or something really dramatic... and deep... of course my tongue in my cheek will keep me safe and warm when my wits wander and who knows, maybe ten years of torture in the bowels of the earth will have a happy ending after all... not fairy tale ending, mind you, but hey, happiness is...
knowing that love will always be
true till the very end
and more than just a fantasy
even when we're away
or out of touch for a while
hoping we'll come again
will always inspire a smile
and when the dark clouds come
we can be so unkind
mistakes and selfishness
can tear a heart and mind
still there is always hope
for good intentions to prevail
and life will come to rhyme
even for ric and gail
cuz keeping in touch with friends
knowing that love will always be
true till the very end
is more than just a fantasy
and when we rise above
the foolishness and tragedies
to keep in touch with friends
to be the best friends we can be
keeping in touch with friends
that is still the best way for me
to be happy
and then i see that mikeyb has a new blog-o-sorts (sudden segue, aye?) and is moguling a new corporation again... i am not sure what my part will be in all that, if any, but i hope he gets really rich so he can adopt me and keep me in silk shirts and rich chocolates for the rest of our lives... now if he'd only let serenity keep her precious and idyllic blog space and commenters without chasing them all away, the blogosphere would be nearly perfect...
and my favorite blogger from across the seas (no offence q, she's cuter) pernickety stopped in for a surprise visit which is always a happy smile and someday she will hopefully come over and play... of course my other favorite far away blogger, quasar, also stopped in... i miss the time i used to have to read your spaces more (and especially miss those great space photos)... i feel humbled that you guys still stop by even after all this time of not venturing beyond my blog worlds... if you are still out there anna, you are missed and i hope to get to all of your blogs day soon (in spite of my backwards moving internet connection)...
and to all the multitudes (what., you though i had only one multitude?... dude!) of silent fans out there, keep your head up, your shorts dry, and remember you are welcome here anytime, even without your shorts... thank you for being...
so what else ya been up to? :)
