Hic?

dmac:

I don't remember the white noise stuff. I do remember the ka-CHUNK.....ka-CHUNK.....ka-CHUNK!!!! (not exactly soothing -- I have no idea how I managed to fall asleep with all that racket going on!) I was in a fast spin 2.5 Tesla scanner so basically it was every man for himself and Katie bar the door. That's some bad ass magnetic action goin' on!

Yeah, you're #1, baby. Don't let it go to your head! wink kiss

So one of my self-improvement projects over the last year has been to get a lot more serious about exercising regularly and effectively. You know what? It really does make you less depressed and all that good stuff.

Today was an unusual day at the gym in that I got onto one of the elliptical cardio machines, which are usually all taken. Hours later my...

There is a Beatles song for every occasion.

I admit it's getting better
It's getting better all the time
Got to admit it's getting better
It's getting better
Since you've been mine

I've been living in the same place and going to the same supermarket long enough that all the checkers know me by sight. One of them stopped mid-scan tonight and appraised a couple of bags of frozen cherries, then told me "I can't sell these to you. They're all soft."

"I didn't notice!" I said. (I didn't, not because they...

I am sensitive to everything. I am allergic to the whole damn world. surreal

moya:

Hah. Aww, someone made sure your cherries are good to go. That is very sweet. tongue
But seriously, wow, that's kind of amazing someone was aware enough to point that out. shocked

I don't think I'm allergic to anything, but walking into Home Depot/Menards/etc.. makes me feel wierd. I think it's the smell and the lighting. surreal

You know what? It would help immensely right now if I could see the future. I don't think it's asking too much. You see, I don't want to see what stocks are going to go up, or who's going to win a horse race, or anything like that. I don't expect to get rich from this. It would just make...

driana:

So, how's the seeing into the future going? Mine's crap.

driana:

No, no, my future will most likely be just fine - my efforts to see the details of my life in six months are the crap part.

And it will be fine for you too. You have a fast car. And an ipod. And you'll cook for girls and let them peg you. (I remember). wink The future will rock.

OK, here's my new short-term goal in life: make the time I spend at work less like Office Space and more like The Secret of My Success. Only without screwing the boss's wife. (Or whatever it was that Michael J. Fox did illicitly in that movie. I barely remember anything about it, except that it was quintessentially '80s. That damn Yello song. OH...

Wait...what did samling mean by that at the top...who died?? Not Michael J. Fox!? Say it ain's so... frown confused

FYI I'm not gonna make it to the Sinferno thing tonight, it's too yucky out and my mouth is still killing me.

I don't know that it's intellectual stimulation that's missing. Honestly, I get more than enough of that at work every day, and if I didn't I still have a bunch of friends I can talk shop with. And even if I didn't have that, L is plenty bright.

It's more just about challenge. I think I'm trained to expect a lot of arguing and butting heads in a relationship, and L really doesn't do that. Some weeks her simplicity (and I don't mean that in any sort of demeaning way-- quite the opposite) is really refreshing. Other times I feel like something is missing.

She just doesn't overanalyze all the little things, and I think that's foreign to me because I grew up in a little liberal college suburb where we had the luxury of sitting around all day stoned and contemplating the finer points of the world. She grew up on a farm, working her ass off. I can't look down on her for having a more practical approach to the world. In fact, I envy her a lot. It's just weird though, and I'm not sure if it's what is best for me.

I'd hate to leave the impression that she's not smart, though. She's actually very bright, and she did well in school to boot.
