Ner's Random Musings on a life of interesting insights

a world of interesting factoids about nothing and everything

(no subject) @ 05:10 pm

Today is Halloween, and I don't think I'm planning to do anything more scary than writing this entry. I won't go into writing much oabout work because not much is actually going on at work yet. I'm still overly confused as to what I'm supposed to do about my project, and I worry that I won't be able to complete it in a quick enough facshion. The project manager isn't going to be able to meet with me until next week, so that's slightly difficult to deal with since I really need to know what the deal is, for real.

Last night I watched a PBS documentary called The Undertaking. It was basically a documentary based around the operation of a funeral home. I thought one of the most striking things that the director talked about was that he was performing a service more for the living than for the dead. He's not only a funeral director, but also a writer and poet, so it was interesting to hear his interjections throughout the film as he read parts of his writing. Holly and I watched it in parallel (we only see each other on weekends because she goes to school and lives a couple of hours away), and she said that there was lots of visual things that she wished she could have explained to me. You would have thought it would have been a morbid film, but it really was very reverent, respectful, and described life in death in a way that, after Holly and I discussed it after the film (we like deep discussions), we appreciated the way that they charactarized death as a subject that does not always have to be a scary taboo thing. could write lots more about this, and probably get all creative on you, but for some reason, I'm kind of tired, and therefore am not feeling inspired to write volumes. This lack of creativity might be exasperated by the pop tart I ae for breakfast, and my very nutritional lunch of pizza, gummy bears, and a Dr. Pepper. These things are NOT writing "power food" methinks.

Again, Happy Halloween, and I'll write soon.

T-H = 2 = :D

I've been eating garbage for weeks now. I really need to do something about that. Oh, right. I RUINED A BATCH OF SOUP!

All is not lost, at least the sludge that is your soup has some nutritional value, gummy bears *do not* I repeat *do not* have any calorical content that remotely resembles anything healthy. At least liquid carrots and potatoes probably does, maybe. I'm with ya man, maybe next time eh?

lol. I'm going to make chicken legs tonight, if I find the energy. So yeah, tomorrow or the next day when I make those chicken legs, I'll have something good to eat.

Ribs are going up and down as far as pain level. Holly wrapped them with ace bandage and it was better for a while and made it worse for a while. Now, I'm ok. It only takes a bit to get them out of whack, so I'm trying to be really careful with it. Totally annoying though, for real. Tlc from girlfriend is a bonus though.

Girlfriend TLC should be bottled and sold. I'd totally be addicted. I never get to see mine as often as I'd like.

So is this a permanent thing you deal with? I'm really sorry.

The rib thing kind of happens on a periodic basis. Becase of my bone condition, my bones aren't as flexible, so I can tear the connective tissue between my ribs pretty easily. So it usually happens every few months. This time it happened two months in a row.

Definitely agree on (a) having a girlfriend (I'm still not used to it) and (b) the tlc thing. Once a week is *not* enough! At least we talk on the phone often.

See, there are SO MANY TIMES that my bones should have been torn apart, but for some reason I never break anything. I'm pretty rough with myself too. I've always been very grateful for that- I'm sorry that you can't experience the same kind of comfort.

When Jessi does come, it means the world to me. Sometimes, it's what keeps me going through the week. Often, really.

You always comment so fast- I'm sorry that it's taken me forever to get back to you. I'm doing my best.

DOn't worry. When I'm not working, I have no life, my email program checks emails often, and I just answer comments when they come in. Answer when you can, when I'm busy I'll do that same thing. Plus, you've got ten billion times more comments than I to filter through.

I feel overwhelmed, because I'm doing everything I can and I don't want anyone to think I don't care.

You don't have to worry about that with me. Get your lifework and papers done, and then talk to us lj people. Lj's kind of addicting for sure though.

Oh, COMPLETELY addictive (addicting is a verb, not a noun :-P And lifework should be life's work).

I like you, though. I'll definitely make the effort.
