leave a comment »

woke this morning with a raging headache


felt much th same as tuesday morning. only, then it lasted through th entire day, until i finally gave up and swallowed an imitrex, bombed it right on out

today, my morning meds were apparently enough to take it out, didn’t even need to take one of th ancient aleves i keep at th office. felt in th clear by 6am, nothing pressing on th head through th rest of th day

now, i just need to get my ass down to th pharmacy to refill that depakote prescription . . . eh, another day, another headache

last day of camp

leave a comment »

out last day at camp stretched out, kept seeming like we were supposed to be on our way back home, then there would always be just one more activity

in one session where we were being taught poetry and other journalism, across th room was patty, she was watching me, i was shocked that after all these years i still did not carry a core notebook with me 24/7 as i had always intended to do

i had a chess game scheduled, but couldn’t make it up the final stretch climbing the rope to th special ceiling room reserved for our activity, they brought a ladder platform for me but then we still didn’t go to th chess game room

leaving we went on a bridge over th whitewater, i was surprised that i had been th first to go down th rapids back when it had been at its roughest and had done well but now was not quite so intrepid although th rough water was barely a ripple

Jumbo Mistake

leave a comment »

I rarely waste time and effort on websites that aren’t worth further notice, but jumbo is so disgustingly bad that it almost warrants jotting down a note just in the unlikely event that I find a website that is worse. As bad as some of the junk out there is, I doubt I could find much if anything worse.

what’s another word for “huh”?

anil dash via points us to WordWeb‘s free version license, which includes as one of its terms –

“You may use the program free of charge indefinitely only if

  • You take at most 4 flights (2 return flights) in any 12 month period
  • AND you do not own or regularly drive an SUV (sports utility vehicle).”

nice little marketing stunt, since the software has garnished enough interest over the trick to pick up more business, never mind whether or not anyone who uses their software actually bothers to follow its irrelevant and uninforceable terms

too thin

leave a comment »

patty was here, to see me it was said

i had what i thought were my jeans, but th waist was easily twice what mine was. i tried another pair that ought to have been mine, but they too were far too large. i moved slowly through trying the third pair on back in th dark backroom, but she was fading out in the lit room beyond th door

back streets

leave a comment »

found the back way to get to th building, thanks in part to yesterday’s fire drill

since it’s becoming annoyingly apparent that the traffic lights around there have suffered from the houston mayor’s idiot idea of traffic flow, this back route might very well need to be come my primary route in
