Fiona and me in the snow

A call to arms

I should start by imploring you all to take up arms against daylight savings time. Not only is it pointless except for it gives us a false sense of security as to having an extra hour of daylight as the days get longer and hotter, but that dreadful day in spring when we must lose an hour of sleep, that negates all the purities and positives of the hell. I lived in Arizona, the sunniest state in the nation, and had no problem with leavng my clock at the same time throughout the year. I didn't gain or lose anything from it, and I sure didn't lose an hour of sleep as I did this morning. I say screw summer time, damn daylight savings, lose that lousy hour of sleep; no.

See what happens when I get pissed off?

Dr. Pepper, Alcohol, same difference

I'm sitting here drinking this 20 OZ Doctor Pepper I've got over here. One of the teachers at school had some left over from the concession stands at school so I bought a case of 24 20 OZ bottoes of the stuff. I have never drank so much Dr. Pepper in my life at one time, except for maybe when me and my friend Rick did the 24 hour marathon Planetarion tournament. That game's almost as addictive as Dr. Pepper. Thank god I resisted the temptation to play this round, maybe next though.

So I'm here, watching as we've got a break from severe weather at least for a short while. A large storm passed through here about 11:30, and dumped a lot of rain basically. There are tornadoes around, but they should stay south of here. It's a good day to stay inside. I'm afraid I'll have to do that rather than frolicking in the rain, though I'd love to sip mint julips outside in the mist, I'll just have to sip Dr. Pepper inside I guess.

More later for sure provided I'm caffeine sober.

rainy eevening in the tea garden

I've always wanted a tea garden, a vered one with little tables where you can sit outside, sip your tea and as is the case tonight enjoy the sometimes torrential, sometimes light rain. I know 've written about this before in these pages, but rain always will calm me down, not that I was stressed before, but listening to this experimental piano ambient music also helps.

I spent the day napping with Gabby on my lap, and also dealing with Gabby as she tried to type. I've been trying to watch The Piano for the longest time, but the damn thing won't download, so alas, I've reverted to listening to calming music, darn, what a crime.

So my day has been productive as usually is my Sunday. I've ended up the evening by burning a cd and having a pretty deep converstaion with one of my friends hopefully followed by a phone call shortly. I must contemplate, think, and decide what I am to do. Not much else is going on. I'll write more later.
