Flecks of Random in the Pudding That Is My Day

  1. I'm sitting at my desk in a parka and fingerless gloves (all the better for typing, my dear!) and still freezing cold. I might require a coffee encore.
  2. When I'm cold I get really sleepy. I think it's my body trying to shut down--ya know, to conserve heat.
  3. It's the kind of sleepy where my eyelids droop as if they were hung with fishing weights and my legs and head feel like lead.
  4. I probably wouldn't feel as sleepy if I didn't insist on staying up until 11:30, propping my eyelids open to watch a Jon Bon Jovi special on VH1 Classic. I don't even like Bon Jovi all that much.
  5. I don't hate him either. He's pretty hot. He has great hair.
  6. I was mostly avoiding the full garbage can and the sub-freezing weather I was required to walk through to empty it.
  7. Old Man Withers' house freaked me out again this morning.
  8. Tiffany didn't help...she voiced my newfound and witheld fears that itinerants might be using Old Man Withers' house as a refuge from the cold.
  9. But then, you can't see the cabin from the street. And we live in the middle of nowhere. So it's highly doubtful that homeless people are living there. Still.
  10. I have very little sympathy for homeless people, with exceptions of course. But mostly I'm annoyed that they've given up. Or won't try. Or would rather live on handouts then experience the pride one achieves in the knowledge that they have provided for themselves and their families through their own hard work and determination. Obviously these feelings are not limited to the homeless...but that's another blog for another day.
  11. I'm excited for pizza at Max's tonight. I wish Paul could come, too.
  12. But he doesn't like Papa Johns.
  13. I wonder how big of a hit Papa Johns' sales numbers are going to take tonight. They're pretty much giving away pizza-- for an excellent cause, but still.
  14. This world can be senseless, and this line of thought is way too emo.
  15. I love going to Maxine's. She gives good hugs. And good liqueur. I feel at home there.  
  16. I'm a student again, as of 4:36 last night.
  17. I don't really want to be.
  18. What can't be touched but can be felt, has never been given, and has a confirmation number, but was not purchased on line?
  19. I don't want to know.

As much as I like pizza, that may have just been the best pizza I ever had.
