Anyway, Thursday night aside, I'm not doing any check-ins until....11 days from now.  So I can officially stop caring.

How could you be anything other than a slave to the darkness that comes before? Only the Logos allows one to mitigate that slavery. Only knowing the sources of thought and action allows us to own our thoughts and our actions, to throw off the yoke of circumstance."

Since my neighborhoor goes guido apeshit for Columbus Day I am in self imposed exile for a few.  Going back late tonigt, when i will hopefully be able to park at my own lot.

I have spent the time visiting family, dodging drama, and brewing pulque.

Ditto. D: I need to stop.


Also, ugh, it's officially fall here. It's 82* right now, the high for this week is supposed to be 79*F, and it may rain on Wednesday/Thursday. I'm going to miss the +95* weather.

Have to take my parrot Jake to the vet tomorrow.
Seizures.  :sad:
after doing my homework, it appears to be a common issue with congo greys and can be remedied fairly handily.
very disconcerting to see your parrot have a seizure, though...

The older I get, the earlier I want to go to bed, and the earlier I wake up. I'm turning into Grandpa.  :argh!:

I'm just hitting that stage of young adulthood where I'd be happy to stay up until the crack of dawn (and have, and do, on a weekly basis). 


But then there are the days where I have nothing to do, so I decide to go to bed early.  And then I still have nothing to do, so I go back to bed. And then I go to bed pretty late after that.  And then I play on computer games for about two hours.  Then I go back to bed.

I'm tired.  I think I'll go lie down and watch a movie, and maybe go to sleep.

I've been trying not to talk about my sex life because, frankly, it's disgusting, but I'm seriously considering writing some invalid porn. Why, I don't know. Maybe as my own personal follow up to TGRR's "Old people sex" exposition.

You get old and floppy, and they take some of your organs, revise others, and leave holes in your body where your body didn't have holes before. You think this stops us from having sex? Oh, no. You just WISH it would.

Columbus Day means empty office.  Time to go play interior decorator again.

I am returning to Utah this morning for another fun-filled 3-day Mormon safari. I am not all that pleased. Next time i have to be out of town for almost 2 weeks, they better send me to set up a new office in the Bahamas. Or Kabul, for that matter. Anywhere other than Salt Lake City.

Spoiler alert: the next location in line is actually in Mississippi. Oh good.

I've only slept 14 hours a couple of times in my life, I think.  One of those times would most likely be influenza induced - although strictly speaking I dont think hallucinations count as "sleep".

And the other time was when I spent four days without sleep writing my magnus opus on Al-Qaeda at University.  I'd lived on black coffee, red bull and pro-plus for all of those four days, but by the end I was running out of money, stamina and willpower, so I handed in what I had, then collapsed into bed at...I'm not even sure what time it was, and woke up about 14 hours later, very confused, dehydrated and aching all over.  I think it took me another two days to get back to normal.
