At 30700, throw a stick that boomerangs around me, circles back and hits mom in the head. She yells loudly.
Walking along a road, then onto a narrow path to cross earlier. It gets tricky, and we cut ahead of a group. They’re going to another group. We get there, and the guy is taking credit cards and verifying them. I’m nervous, and walk past him. It looks like he’s planning to build a new wall. I ask him about it.
Walking along the waterfront, lots of trees. A loud plane comes by fast, then back the other way. Another, then a helicopter. We go closer, and 2 missiles get fired off. We watch them go, and I hope they’re not live.
In the backyard, look over and there’s an odd craft coming towards us-like a black M. It passes and lands on a hill. There are lights in the sky.
Please tip the writer. It’s just five bucks. If you need essential oils, please get in touch. Let me know if you or someone you know needs web design/development-my rates aren’t bad, and I’m pretty good at it. Offsite/off-hours only.
Chilling in bed on Saturday. A week of no $$$ upcoming, and Monday is a holiday. No plans. Prolly clean and laze. Got Panda Express for S’s dinner, watched GotG, she opened presents, M and I worked out. Someone turned off the a/c, so it was an oven. I propped the doors open for a little bit. I’m liking the variety-even better than what I was doing many years ago. If I had a Nordic Track it would be perfect.
Now Labor Day-rather be working because we need the money. Pretty quiet weekend, C’s gf is staying with us for a few days-problems at home. Sat., binz, clean, tv. Sun., church, market, binz, w/o-hot again, made them turn on the a/c-didn’t help. Grill, Harry Potter. Restless sleep, up, laze. At work-we’re short for rent. Labor Day-lazy, keep things clean, grill, bed, again, hard to sleep, but not horrendous.
Weds-same ‘ol, no gamelan yet. W/o last night, late. Keeping the variety going-no M, so skipped some negs-on a few of the others I was still sore from Sunday. Aging rears it’s head again-also got an achy adductor tendon. Plus the knee one. And the shoulder one(s).
Thurs., payday tomorrow, and a ton of bills to catch up on. Stuck at work, as 2 things I need to get my work done are down/non-functional-I did the changes I need to make, but can’t deploy. And now Friday, one of the things is working, the other isn’t. Got up at the same time S did last night, and she got up this morning too. Blew off church choir thing-too far away. Trying to cut down on visual stimuli-I think visual overload is contributing to my fatigue. I noticed it a few months ago while grocery shopping. I’m extending it to my commute. We’ll see. It’s hard, because I spend my work days in front of a computer screen.
Sunday, sitting in church. W/o Friday, shop and clean Sat. Not much else. Busy Sun., market, S is sore from games, binz, shop, school party, river, w/o, late. I’m sore and achy today. We’ll see how it goes tomorrow.
And it’s tomorrow-walked into a huge kerfuffle. At least it’s fixed now. More failing things, but everything seems ok now (it wasn’t, but close). W/o-change of pace-always weird. Watching stuff about Florence. Big storm. Been there, done that. E would rather be in a hurricane than an earthquake, I don’t know.
And now Friday. Have to sit in an interview-I hate interviews, but I don’t mind being on the other side. So, choir practice last night-I’m getting a little better at sight reading, but not much. The other song was charted, so I could follow along better. No gamelan yet. Everything else is pretty mellow-no $$$, but E got a job, so that may change a bit. She started today. C gets his braces off.
Links. brighter side: nothing, but I’m not looking either. Not so bright: everything else.

I listen to music all the time back and forth on the Max/bus, and in the car, but iPhone and iTunes don’t let me track it. That was one of my favorite things to show.
Walking through school to class. Thinking about what classes I’m taking. I go pee, then gather up my stuff. A teacher comes up to me and gives me an assignment I missed. It’s English, so I read the story and start writing. It’s about a girl who has some magic things happen. I write, but run out of room on the page. Try to find paper to attach and write more.
On a big kite field, John B flying an indoor. He’s doing all sorts of tricks. We walk over to the other side of the field and watch. I think about flying.
I’m going to check on a server deployment. Go down an alley to the backyard of a house, look over the fence at the yard. Get in, the server is in a grill, but the top is locked. I try it, look inside, feel around the ground for the key. Can’t find it.
Going to someone’s office. Drive up a hill to the building, park, walk up the steps. Go into the office, leave, drive away.
On a carrier, 2 guys are arguing about which service branch is better. The Army guy says anyone can run a boat. The Navy guys blows up, grabs a plane and takes off, saying “OK, you run it”. He flies to DC and lands in front of a church on a hill. A Park Service ranger comes up and tells him he has to move, so he rolls the plane down the hill.
In a office with Pres. T and a woman. Watching a show about history. We miss something, I try to scribble the info on a post-it. We rewind and its about a pack of papers found in a house. They were supposed to be delivered to the founders when they were drafting the Declaration of Independence. We look around and find a replica. Go through the papers and the authentication stuff.
At someone’s house, listening to an NPR broadcast over an odd animal sculpture. I go back and forth looking for info. Someone there asks me what I’m doing. I finish, and go into the bathroom to pee. It’s also a bed, and I get pee all over her laptop. I cover it up, continue, then someone comes in. I roll over and cover up, and yell at them, they smile and someone else comes in.
At work, trying to finish a project. Walk over to another office and talk about stuff. Things are collapsing. Go back down and across to the other office.
At a meeting, everyone is in a big circle and singing-we hold our hands out and wave them. All different colors, and the Dalai Lama is there.
Talk with E about going skiing and how this would’ve been the last time this year.
