Rainy Season

The painters show up for day two and they already have the walls, trim, and ceilings done with the first coat. So they are really going at a fast clip and it looks like we might get it wrapped up by Friday. One of the lads professes to be a Fighting Irish football fan. IContinue reading “Rainy Season”

Hunger

I don’t eat nearly as much as I used to anymore. I’m just not as hungry as I used to be. Oh, every so often I will overindulge with a potent indica strain and then I will put on the feedbag. And I am always amazed at how delicious everything tastes, and how cool theContinue reading “Hunger”

Reason

I admire people who use reason as their first instinct before deciding on a course of action. I admire them because I am usually the opposite in my reactions and following actions. It is a major flaw of mine (I know I just shocked those of you who see me as the perfect male, butContinue reading “Reason”

The Return of the Satin Latin

I left the hospital yesterday afternoon but not before I started walking my way out because it was taking too long for someone to bring me a wheelchair. Something about reducing the hospital’s liability. Sounded to me like they were just buying time. Time that I don’t have since this was my 23rd invasive surgery.Continue reading “The Return of the Satin Latin”

Be on the Alert

Why? Why do you want to live life continually “on the alert” for things which may or may not, happen? Go gives a flying shit anyway (as if shit could fly)? I am drawing the line on alerts. I just got an alert from my bank telling me “you have no alerts at this time.”Continue reading “Be on the Alert”

Inefficiency

I can’t stand it. The idea invokes failure. Who are the idiot architects in the grocery store game who are responsible for planning out the best (most efficient) place to put in the restrooms and pharmacies? “Put them farthest away so injured and sick people have to limp their infirmed bodies all the way toContinue reading “Inefficiency”

One More Time

Today at 10:30 EST I check into the hospital for a very short stay (I hope) as the vascular surgeon will be cleaning out my right corraded artery and putting yet another stent in my beautiful brown body. That makes a total of 9 and three of those were lost to amputation. I know IContinue reading “One More Time”

Faster Food

I have been living on fast food for the past six weeks. I have eaten more burgers, fries, etc. in that time than I did in my entire life except high school, when I would eat about 8 Whoppers before and after football practice. And then go home and eat dinner with the family. ThatContinue reading “Faster Food”

Ouch

Or like my Uncle Mike used to say, “two big ouches!” No, not the pain of umpteen unnecessary needles for yet another useless lab, not the pain-in-the-ass newbie who won’t let me even try to get a few hours of sleep, and certainly not the minimal inconvenience of having six stents placed in my heart.Continue reading “Ouch”

Home Sweet Home

We executed the contract yesterday and now we can finally rest from the frenetic cross-country Death Ride out from Arizona. We get to pack up all our belongings, unload the Highlander, and let our two loyal furry friends into their big privacy-fenced back yard. I think they are even entertaining the thought of swimming inContinue reading “Home Sweet Home”
