Lunch conversation

Sports
One among us is a huge baseball fan. I have known him for a long time and he has always liked baseball. He has a ticket to one of the playoff games. All went on for time at length over baseball, pasts and future. Will the Astros make good?
It seems several of our number had visiting family. I’m not sure if this is a sign of our average age or if there is something about the weather.

Video games
Some stupid video game. Jennie and I stared out the window. Our passive aggressive approach worked and the subject magically switched tracks.

Art
Adam mentioned our visit to the art gallery this weekend and the fact he was worried about us being mistaken for a gay couple. I figure we are not a gay couple so who cares. It might make those folks talk to us more openly. Nuclear fallout and radiation I don’t remember how we got on the subject, but Fukushima and Chernobyl both were cited before someone diverted the conversation before I could tell an interesting anecdote of how both cities are left more or less undisturbed covered in radioactive dust.

Caverns
One of us has vowed to never visit caverns in Texas again. They worry their visage appears on a wanted poster in the main office of one or more locations because of a youthful unpleasantness.

Level of anger in life
One of us has a goal of low anger in life. Another has a goal of zero anger in life. He acknowledges that this will not happen, but he aims for it regardless. I like the idea, but I know I am an angry person. This part of the conversation made me think about myself and how I might make myself a better person.

How Many Axes does it Take?

Someone asked me what’s wrong and I was going to use this as an outline for a blog entry, but I don’t have that kind of time. The title means all of these issues are axes dangling over my head waiting to fall. Some alternate titles might include “Why I can’t just get over it”, “Why I look tired all the time”, “AAAAAA!!! AAAAAA!!!”.


  • Divorce
    • We are separated and I have no idea what comes next.
  • Harvey and my stress
    • Roof - leaks
    • Car - went through some high water
    • I wake at night in a sweat if I hear rain.
    • I had no real destruction and everyone else is doing a better job of handling this.
  • Harvey and my friend’s stress
    • My best friend had his house flooded.
    • Other friends had their houses flooded.
  • House (other than Harvey)
    • Floors need replacing
    • Needs paint inside and out
    • Could use some landscaping
    • The siding on the back of the house needs some repairs.
    • There is some water damage from the last hurricane at the back door.
    • May have to sell in the divorce anyway
    • Taxes are through the roof.
    • We have a car dump next door.
    • Ants!
  • My father’s health (no details)
  • My mother’s health (no details)
  • My health
    • My balance is getting to the point I have a hard time walking.
    • I have headaches and I think it is related to something going on with my balance.
    • I have a pain in my gut that might be blader infection, kidney stone.
    • I have nightmares of having intestinal parasites crawling through my flesh and no way to prove to myself that they do not exist.
    • I just don’t have time to fight the insurance to get fixed. That is a full time job.
  • Work
    • 400,000 bosses (everyone at the company) You remember that scene in Office Space where the guy complains about his eight bosses giving him crap about a form?
    • One more fix that everyone wants to get in before I can do my job.
    • Unpredictable hours
    • Multitasking and the fact that I can’t do it. People at work say multitasking is bad and then put you in a situation where you can’t succeed without it.
    • Having to depend on others is stressful.
    • No one wants to commit to a decision.
    • I found a desk that works for me and I live in fear that they will move me again “...  to disrupt people’s comfort zones.” Because God knows finding what works for you and sticking with it is a lousy way of not hitting the same problems over and over again.
  • Overcommunication
    • 9 million ways of talking and no one uses them.
    • 9 million ways of talking and I can’t find the information I need.
    • 9 million ways of talking and I don’t want to talk to anyone.
    • 9 million ways of talking and I only hear static when I scream.
  • No outlet and a million inlets leads to Kelly being an asshole.

Honestly, I’m afraid to start venting because I may not be able to stop.

Coffee forum


So many mornings I find myself breaking the dawn with sip of winged elixir concocted by mine own hands. This morning took a different tack. With a lack of fresh (bottled) water in all our office I abandon hope of defending the pride of our band. I sought and found a mursinary by the name McDonald to smite my day’s thirst for the potion of focus. Think of me not as defeated but on this day, I choose to survive and plan to rebuild.

Write what you understand


What is the latest thing that pisses me off? I have been reading political stuff so much that I’m immune to normal upsetting shit. Recently I lost a little kitty. She was a cuddly little friend. I have that to be upset about. The political stuff is put in perspective and I take one more step forward. Loss sucks. Life sucks. Having to work for a living sucks. But, here we are. One more step.

book

I have a barebones idea for a novel. It is terrible. Maybe I should just write it to get it out of my head. I should set out to write a painted piece of shit. That way I will not be disappointed when I eventually hit the mark. I hate love scenes.  I Don't like reading them and I just know I would never be able write them. Only children’s books sell without love scenes. What is in me and will come out of me is not that. Then the universe ended.

Luna

Luna is very ill. She spent most of last night in the master bedroom with me. I propped the door open with a shoe. so she wouldn’t get trapped. I am not sure she left all night. When I found her this morning she was at the head of the bed underneath. She hissed at me whenever I got close. Nat was able to pick her up and cuddle with her. It is a very sad day.

Elle is singing to Luna sitting in her lap. It is the most precious thing I've heard in my life. It is Luna’s time I’m afraid. She can’t eat or walk properly. And she used to be so fast and graceful. Poor kitty.

Nat and Elle tok Luna to the car in the carrier. She was moaning. Like she wanted to meow. Sorry little kitty.


She came to us in a flower pot.
