Random Thoughts after last night's "Spring Forward"
I worked my two twelves and I'm going to do a 7-11 tonight because they are short and I will be duly compensated. Yeehaaaa. Do you ever look at your desk, at your books and other things and say, "Why on earth am I wasting time browsing LJ?" Is it just me? I've got a couple of things to write, soon, but they are mulling... murky emotional things only darkly formed and threatening in my mind. I don't want to acknowledge things like this, but I have to deal and one thing I know is dealing isn't ignoring till it goes away! Though, if that was possible, I would have perfected it by now.

Those of you who have co-workers who read your LJ, did you tell them or did they find out another way? And, if you could choose how it is, would you prefer they know or not? Just curious.

Still waiting for people to spontaneously form a line to befriend me, hasn't happened just yet. Cell phones weren't meant to see this little use, I need to blow the trash out of the carb so it doesn't get sluggish. If you followed that you are sad. I haven't had sleep, what's your excuse?

Get help if you need it. Don't spend years muddling through things when professional help can get you moving in the right direction quickly. You know who you are. (Imagining everyone who reads this pointing to themselves... "Me?")

(Pointing to myself, "Me?")


Have I mentioned lately that my wife is The BEST? Well, she is. And, her new perm looks awesome!

I hate feeling like there are so many things I can't put in my journal. Does anyone else feel that way? I know, that's what private entries are for. That's not what I mean. More later when coherent thought returns (very hopeful statement) on this subject perhaps. It's in there with those dark, mulling things.

It isn't often you read "new perm" and "awesome!" in the same sentence.

But I'm sure it's very nice. :)

Hey man, it's one of those spiral perms aaaaand it was low stinkage.

BTW, for future reference, when she agrees that flowers are too expensive and a waste because they die in a few days and there are much better things to spend money on, that doesn't mean she doesn't still want you to buy them! This is also true of "beautification" trips in all their forms: hair, nails, day spa, etc.

(But not true of gym memberships, that's the no man's land of gift giving right there, mi amigo. Fortunately, this is one of those lesson's I learned before I did it!)

Yes, you see..that's the thing..love doesn't always = rational behavior. Sometimes you gotta run after her car, in the rain, yelling her name, until she finally realizes what's going on and tells the taxi driver to stop, then she gets out of the car, runs out to meet you, other cars honking their horns and barely missing the both of you as they whizz by, and then the music starts its crescendo, and as the two of you meet the camera starts the fade and roll credits. You know what I mean here?

And yeah..gym memberships as a gift, whether or not it's intentional (and it never is) equals "I think you have room for improvement" to the fairer sex. If our experience shows for anything, we know not to do this.. :)

Moreso in the last week than any time previous, yes.

This entry was just what I needed to read this morning, when I first read it, Bruce. Thank you, so much. Even as open as my journal sometimes seems, I have a hard time posting some things.

And, you'll find that I quoted you in the last entry I'm writing for tonight....

I don't think I've ever told you, or if I have recently. You are a huge role model to me. I appreciate your entries and your comments. I'm glad we met. :)

I know you have at least a partial solution, in that you write in a paper journal, post in other journals here, and such. I do not wish to have "another" place, but don't feel completely free to post here, at times.

I hate to say it, but I really don't have much in common with nearly my whole "friends list." That's good for getting differing perspectives and opinions, and for reading differing views of life. It is bad when you want solace or feel a need for confirmation, or justification of something you want to say. I'm not sure how to deal with that, just yet. I'm thinking on it.

Oops, I posted before I was finished!

"I don't think I've ever told you, or if I have recently. You are a huge role model to me. I appreciate your entries and your comments."

Wow. Thank you for such a nice compliment. I'm touched and also surprised. I would never have expected a dedicated feminist to call me a "role model." ;-)

It is always a surprise, too, what posts I get comments like this from. When I post something that I think "has substance" and may "get attention" it doesn't, and when I post something as disjointed and silly as this post, it sometimes actually means something to someone. I've come to realize, I don't understand much about LJ at all! But I love it!

Stick around and we'll see what happens together.

*smiles softly* Just because I'm a dedicated feminist doesn't mean I can't learn from you and look up to you. I enjoy our comment-conversations. *smiles again*

Thank you for you.
